Choosing Furniture Upholstery – Tips To Consider

Jan 21st 2015 at 3:27 AM

One of the biggest advantages of getting custom upholstered furniture made is that you can get exactly what you are looking for. In fact, custom made furniture can work out to be a very affordable option if you get it made by the right company. You do need to give a bit of thought to the kind of furniture upholstery that you choose because this goes a long way to ensure that the furniture is comfortable and long lasting.

While you would definitely choose the upholstery of your custom built furniture based upon the color scheme of your home and how comfortable it is, there are other factors that you have to consider as well.

  1. How durable is the fabric? If the sofa or chair will be used very often then you should select a highly durable fabric. If the fabric is tightly woven and it also has a high thread count then it will be very durable. When it comes to a patterned fabric, it is best to go for a woven one rather than a printed one. Pick a fade resistant material if the sofa will be placed in direct sunlight.
  2. Does the style of fabric match the furniture? If you have ordered furniture in a contemporary design then you should also choose a fabric that matches it instead of going for a heavy, traditional style.
  3. Does anyone in the family suffer from allergies? If so, you should go with a fabric that does not attract dust. A microfiber or leather sofa is the perfect option in this case.
  4. Are they pets or kids at home? If there are then you should avoid choosing a delicate or costly fabric such as silk because it is sure to get ruined in a very short time. Instead, you should choose fabric that is thick and easy to clean. In fact, it’s a good idea to treat a cotton blend fabric with a stain resistant chemical in order to avoid damages due to the spills that will inevitably happen. You could also opt for vinyl that looks just like leather.

The right custom built furniture will make your home as attractive and comfortable as possible and it will also suit your personality and lifestyle. It is best to do a bit of research on various furniture styles and upholstery types before you place your order so that you are perfectly satisfied with the result.
