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.
The first type of summery pattern that can be great to invest in is something with a print that is reminiscent of the summer season. This can include ice cream prints, checker board patterns with beach balls and sand castles, or patterns that features summer fruit such as slices of watermelon and strawberries. This is also a great way to add some fun to your upholstery, as all of these patterns are vibrant, interesting and out of the ordinary. As mentioned above, these are often a great choice for furniture in a summer house or for patio furniture that you only get out during warmer times of the year.
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.
