Upholstery Fabric Solutions
When you are looking at upholstery fabric solutions, you will quickly realise there are a lot more options that most of us realise. Then there are things like the thread count which refers to the tightness of the fabric – the higher the thread count, the higher the quality material.
Natural fabrics are a popular option. Leather is one of the most popular types of furniture upholstery and is tough and long-lasting. It is also easy for an expert to repair if there are rips or other damage to it.
Cotton is wear resistant, doesn’t fade or pile and is less likely to soil or wrinkle. It is also easy to use treatments if there is a stain. Cotton is often blended with other materials to make different types of upholstery while different weaves also give materials such as canvas and damask.
Wool is sturdy and durable and doesn’t soil or stain easily. It is often mixed with man-made fibres to enhance the natural benefits and this means it is easy to clean and also to repair if there is an accident.
Linen is known as a clothing fabric but is also sometimes used on furniture. It is prone to wrinkling so tends to be used for adult areas or formal living rooms. It is very fade resistant. Similarly, silk is a luxury material that tends to be used in formal living rooms and is very delicate. It requires professional cleaning if there are any stains.
