Upholstery That Will Last

Posted by

It’s finally happened: your favorite spot on the sofa has worn so thin that it’s time to have it reupholstered.  Or maybe you’ve repainted the living room and now the chairs, sectional, and ottoman need new upholstery in order to look good with the new wall color.  Or perhaps you’re just tired of looking at the fabric print on your loveseat and want a new look.  In any case, choosing fabric that will stand the test of time, and selecting a good professional furniture refinisher for the job, can seem like big tasks.  So, how do you choose furniture fabric that will last?

Here are three good tips for selecting the right upholstery for your furniture:

  • Neutrals – Neutral fabrics can disguise light stains, pet fur, etc. until you’re able to clean up. They’re also able to stand the test of time better than, say, a bright and up-to-the-minute trendy pattern or design.
  • Tweed or Herringbone – The fine patterning of tweed and herringbone can also work to hide the wrinkles, pet hair, and other earmarks of everyday life that can befall upholstered furniture and can add warmth to the feel of the room.
  • Durability – Durability is something to consider when choosing the best fabric for your furniture. Fine silk can be a good choice for an antique settee that is almost never used, but may not be wise to choose for a sectional in the family room that gets daily use from kids, pets, and the entire family.  For furniture that receives a lot of use, choose something durable that is able to sustain cleaning.
  • Skill and Precision – When it comes to refinishing your favorite furniture, trust the job to high quality professional furniture refinishers and upholsterers, and don’t settle for less. Your home deserves the skill, precision, and craftsmanship that the best professional furniture restoration company in your area can provide!
