Style. First and foremost, you want to try to match the style of your furniture with the style of the upholstery fabric. For example, if you are re-upholstering an antique piece, it would look very out-of-sorts to cover it in polka-dot fabric. In addition, some fabric styles create a casual appearance while others are more formal. Ultimately, how do you want your room to be perceived? How do you want your own style reflected by your furniture? Many patterns may make an attractive addition to your room, but you should always take some time to try to see the big picture and choose a style that fits the furniture, the room, and your personality.
Choosing the perfect upholstery fabric can be a daunting process. There are so many different fabrics on the market and you need to choose between cotton, silk, velvet and more to identify the one you feel is going to work with your design, stand out and complete your design to perfection.
The first thing you are going to want to do when looking at upholstery fabrics is to know what the piece of furniture is going to be used for and who is going to use it. If you live in a family household with younger children and pets, then chances are they are going to use the piece of furniture, which means you're going to want to focus on the durability of the upholstery fabric and maybe choose a darker colour, which isn't going to stain easily.
Other Special Considerations. Finally, you should think about other aspects of the room and your needs before deciding on an upholstery fabric. If your room gets a lot of sunlight, you probably want a fade-resistant fabric. In humid or moisture-prone rooms, a mildew-resistant fabric is a great choice. Upholstery fabrics that are made with certain microfibers are lint free and reduce allergens. By considering all your needs and wants, you'll be able to refine your search for upholstery fabric and choose the best fit for your home.
