Upholstery Glasgow North
Are upholstery project too complicated?
It seems easier - and quicker - take the old sofa to the 'municipal tip' and opt for a new one. People will tell you it is cheaper and far less hassle but, in all honesty, if it is simply the case that the fabric is torn on the arm and a little be jaded, isn't it a waste of money to get rid of a perfectly good piece of furniture?
Satisfied upholstery Glasgow North customers will advocate the use of a local upholstery company for breathing life back into tired looking furniture but the key lay in choosing the right fabric, so the face of the item not only looks beautiful, but will last too.
What fabric will you choose?
There is no hard and fast rule to the effect you can create with upholstery fabric. In fact, many potential upholstery Glasgow North customers have let their imaginations run wild!
You can opt to have all the items coordinating; in other words, they are all re-covered in the same fabric. OR, you may decide to have one main item standing out in a bright pattern, with peripheral items complementing it with a similar colour.
Or, you can throw creative caution out the window and opt for a different fabric on each item; the choice is yours, and yours alone!
But, making sure you get the right type of fabric is important as you may like the look and feel of silk, but your silk covered sofa won't last long if you have cats stretching out along it; claws, sticky fingers and robust family life is not always well matched to some fabrics.
Here are just a few ideas;
Corduroy is an 'on trend' fabric for the interior during 2014 and many upholstery Glasgow North customers have opted for this material. Available in a range of colours and patterns in some cases, it is becoming an increasingly popular choice for re-covering furniture.
Faux skins are also still popular, from fake leopard print through to zebra stripes. If you are looking to inject a little fun into the lounge furniture, this is a great way of doing it.
Leather and suede are also still popular with upholstery Glasgow North customers, simply because of their durability, as well as the look and feel of opulence you get with these fabrics. Available in a range of colours, they fit in with most interior design schemes, as well as being versatile for future redecoration projects too. They can withstand the pressures and rigours of family life too making them a great all-rounder.
But to be on-trend and thoroughly eco-friendly, many upholstery Glasgow North customers have opted for wool. A great British product, the colour spectrum of this product is almost limitless. Great for warmth and insulation, it is also an incredibly strong, durable and robust fabric that adds a certain air of sophistication to interior design schemes.
There are so many fabrics, so many colours and hundreds, if not thousands of patterns to choose from. Why not embark on an exciting upholstery project like so many other upholstery Glasgow North customers before you?
