Next you will find that velvet is light and can really add volume to your room design. When you choose fabrics, you want to focus on playing with textures. Having everything the same texture will leave you with a boring room design, but working with texture and colour will ensure your room makes the impact you are looking to achieve.
You probably never knew there was a variety of velvets to choose from. Not all velvets are the same. There is linen velvet, which is one of the more popular varieties and is lighter, cooler and provides texture. There is silk velvet which is very indulgent, the printed velvet gives you some depth and design, a perfect finish to your room while crushed can give you a different design to add texture and style to your room finish.
Durability. This might not be an obvious consideration, but you should always think about who will be using the room. A delicate, soft fabric is fine for a formal living room, but you wouldn't want to decorate a children's playroom with it. Typically, woven patterns are more durable than printed ones, and higher thread counts also provide a longer lifespan. Though these upholstery fabrics may be more expensive, their durability makes up for the cost.
Colour. In a sense, your options are limitless. Today's upholstery fabrics are available in virtually any colour, which is important because colour is typically the first consideration designers make when choosing upholstery fabric. Still, aside from how it fits with the colour of surrounding pieces, window coverings, and wall paint, the colour of your upholstery fabric can have a greater impact on the feel of a room. For example, in a smaller room less imposing colour can actually create the experience of space.
