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.
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.
Of course there are downsides and when choosing which fabric is the right match for your design and lifestyle, it is important you know and understand both sides of the coin. Cotton tends to wrinkle, which can be rather frustrating, especially when using the material for furniture. It also tends to shrink, which means while cleaning is easy, you need to take care.
On the other hand, in a room frequented by children or pets, white and other delicate colours are not a great idea. Some things you can consider when choosing upholstery fabric is mood and how colour temperature impacts the mood of that room. Warm and cool colours create different atmospheres. Also, try to avoid trendy colours, especially if you're not sure how you'll feel about that colour when it's not so trendy anymore.
