Of course, injecting a little bit of summer into your decor with upholstery fabric does not need to be restricted to the patterns that you choose; often, color alone will be more than enough to impart a summer vibe, and is ideal for those who are generally not so keen on patterns or cannot find one that suits their preferences. Choosing vibrant hues and pastel colors is often a great way to update upholstery fabric for the warmest season of the year. This brings a touch of the light and bright into the home, which can bring some life to a room during the brighter seasons of the year. In contrast to warm and cosy shades in the autumn and winter, light and colorful shades are perfect for spring and summer.
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.
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.
Colour is another very important consideration. If you are in the process of designing a formal living room which will only be used by adults or when you have guests over, then choosing a lighter shade will work well in the space as the risk of the item having spills and dirt is reduced. In the event you are choosing the fabric for your sofas in the family room and you have children, pets and a house filled with guests at all times, then choosing something darker which will mask any stains and spills is going to be more beneficial to you in the long run and reduce the need of having to change the fabric because someone spilled a glass of red wine on the sofa and now you can't get rid of the stain.
