Choices, choices, choices!
It is an exciting time, re-creating and updating a space within your home. No matter which room, taking time to choose the rights colours and furniture is a pleasurable and essential part of any interior design renovation.
However, not everyone is 'brave' enough to take on an upholstery product but before you throw away the sofa, opting for new, why take a second look at how straightforward and easy a change of upholstery is for your Ayr home?
And so begins the whole array of choices, laid out before you from the very obvious such as colour and pattern, to the less obvious but nevertheless essential factors, such as durability…
When Ayr customers look to invest in upholstery, it is important that they consider who will be using the item of furniture, the sofa, for example, most of the time. Some fabrics are far superior when it comes to handling tougher 'abuse' that children and pets often bring to a home!
You can guesstimate the durability of upholstery fabric for your Ayr project through the thread count of the material. The higher the count, the more durable the fabric should be. This measurement refers to the number of threads per square inch of the fabric and many people also find that pulling a small portion of the material tightly can also give an indication of how robust a fabric is; higher thread counts will not allow too much light through when pulled tight.
Style & Colour
The choice of style when it comes to upholstery fabrics for Ayr customers depends on not only your own personal choice but also the project or item of furniture you are covering. Although some people do say that 'formal', traditional pieces of furniture should have a traditional style of fabric use on them but, many customers like to push style boundaries when it comes to choices of upholstery fabric.
But, you may be surprised to learn that this does not mean a limited choice of upholstery for your Ayr project, quite the opposite in fact. There are many colours and patterns that will fit any interior design scheme but you do need to consider the scale of the pattern. Bold, larger patterns work better in a larger room, where as smaller, understated patterns work well in smaller spaces.
Colour, of course, is a choice that is entirely yours; the choice of upholstery fabric colour for your Ayr project will depend upon your interior design scheme.
In summary, an upholstery renovation project is a worthwhile and satisfying one. Unlike buying a readymade sofa from a large manufacturer, you keep so much more control with this type of project. You may, for example, have additional considerations which a readymade item of furniture might not be able to accommodate - allergies, fade resistance upholstery along with other factors are all considerations that can be taken into account with your own project.
After all these decisions, you can sit back and admire your handy work!
