How to Choose Furniture Upholstery Fabric?

Upholstery Fabric

Furniture upholstery is an integral design element in every household. If you do not have the right kind of upholstery your house may look bare and unkempt.

Choose fabric as per your local weather conditions

In tropical regions where rain, extreme sun and dust are a natural part of daily life it becomes difficult to install heavy fabrics or silk based materials on household furniture. This is why you will notice that people who live in the tropics have light cloth or cotton based fabrics around the house. That’s because they are easier to maintain.

However, if you live in a temperate or cold region you can also choose heavy or silk based material for your furniture. In colder regions or slightly warmer but not extremely sunny ones heavy based cloths can be maintained easily.

Fabric that is easy to clean

Cleaning and maintaining furniture upholstery is a task in itself. The heavier the fabric, the tougher it will be to maintain it. It therefore makes sense to choose a fabric that is easy to keep clean or wash regularly. Although professional furniture upholstery services may offer dry clean services too, in the long run you may tire of constantly removing the heavy fabric and getting it cleaned every few months.

Long lasting fabric

Try to choose furniture upholstery that is long lasting. Do not choose a fabric only based on its design or colour. Ask Furniture upholstery Brisbrane about the materials that will last you a couple of years at least. That way you won’t have to worry about buying new fabric in the short term.
