Colors that are great for this time of year include pale and rose pinks, baby blues, light greens, yellows and corals. All of these are representative of the colors we find outside in nature at this time of the year, and therefore look fantastic on furniture. Although blocks of color in these shades can look great, there is also the choice to select very subtle prints and designs, such as a upholstery fabric which features its colors in a 'watercolor' style print rather than a regular plain color. This has the appearance that the color has been painted on a blank canvas and can look stunning and very summery indeed.
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.
There are a number of advantages to choosing velvet as your upholstery fabric which you need to be aware of. Chances are if you are already looking at this fabric, then you know the benefits, which is why you are choosing velvet in the first place. The first thing is that this materials is so soft and luxurious. Run your hand over velvet and you are welcomed by a smooth a superior feel that only velvet can provide.
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.
