Furniture is an incredibly important component of a room's décor. In fact, many professional designers will tell you that you should decorate a room based on the colour and fabric of the main pieces of furniture in your room. But what if you are re-upholstering your furniture? Choosing patterns and styles can be a bit tricky, but by following a few basic rules, you'll find the perfect upholstery fabric to really highlight your personal style. So what should you consider? Obviously colour and style are important, but you will also want to think about the function of your room and qualities like fabric durability and other special considerations.
It's a good idea to check with the upholstery fabric supplier to identify if the material they supply is fade resistant. Over time sun is guaranteed to shine into the space, catching the fabric and we all know how damaging the sun rays can be. There is nothing worse than one side of the furniture item losing its colour, while the other side stays brilliant and bright. Fade resistance can be a major benefit and definitely something that should be taken into consideration.
Now as with benefits, you need to know the disadvantages before ordering this material and using it for your next furniture item. Unfortunately even luxurious velvet comes with some cons and this includes how difficult it is to clean. Cleaning velvet is not an easy task and you will need to follow the manufacturers instructions step by step to ensure the material stays clean and looking great.
Velvet tends to hold onto colour very well, making all colours exceptionally rich. Whether you have chosen a solid colour or a pattern design, yo will notice your colours will be bold, noticeable and rich when you choose velvet as your upholstery fabric. It is also very thick and dense, which is what makes it so warm, comfortable and welcoming.
