It is very important for you to understand whichupholstery fabric will serve your needs the best. You have to consider pets, particularly cats, children and the general color scheme of the room. Below are some other important factors to consider.
The first thing that comes to mind when you are thinking about buying upholstered furniture is usually what color to pick. It’s usually the single biggest factor in fabric selection. But while color is important, other factors are equally important.
The importance of fabric durability varies depending on the piece of furniture, which room it is used in and personal aspects of the family, such as if children and pets live in the house.
Your fabric selection should reflect those issues.
- Woven patterns hold up longer than printed ones, as do higher thread counts and tight weaves. Thread count refers to the number of threads per square inch of fabric, and denser fabric lasts longer.
- Choose a fabric based on who will be using your sofa. If your pets will be sharing your sofa with you, consider a microfiber fabric or leather because these can withstand extra wear and tear.
- Fabric durability is important if your sofa or chair will get daily use.
