The style of the upholstery fabric is also a big decision you are going to have to make. If you want to add a splash of colour to your room design, but still keep the piece neutral to enhance the space, then choosing something with a pattern is worthwhile. Remember that style will play a role in the type of furniture item you wish to cover. If you are covering a modern piece, then choose modern upholstery fabric, but if you are covering a traditional chair which is going to sit in your bedroom, for example, stick to more traditional patterns and styles which will complement the piece moving forward.
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.
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.
You will find when you start looking around online that the curtain and upholstery fabrics offered come in a wide selection, which can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unsure which is the right choice for you moving forward. Of course if you are going to spend money now and buy a top quality fabric, you expect it to last. But it is also worthwhile knowing what makes each of the fabrics so special and which will be the most durable and stylish choice based on your particular project.
