Heading into an upholstery project at your Hamilton home or business?
Take some time looking and thinking about the right choice of upholstery fabric, and you will have a repaired and renewed item of furniture, perfect for years to come.
Before you even start looking at upholstery fabrics…
… assess your Hamilton home or business. How is it used? Who uses it? For domestic settings, what pets are there? Is there any other factors that means your furniture takes a pounding on a daily basis, from muddy dogs to sticky, little fingers?
Now you have done a quick appreciation of what the upholstery needs to withstand, now you get to the exciting part - looking at the amazing range of upholstery fabrics!
Leather is perfect for households with pets; not only do cats and dogs allegedly not like the feel of the fabric, it does not attract pet hair. Spills and splatters can also be wiped off leather, although it can stain it if not removed quickly. As a 'living', natural product, leather is an upholstery fabric that mellows with age and, with minimal care and attention, can last for years.
But, if you are on a budget, leather just might push the limits therefore an interesting alternative is vinyl. With the same easily wipe-able surface, it proves a popular choice of upholstery fabric for many Hamilton families.
Microfiber is another upholstery fabric findings its way into many a Hamilton home. Smooth to touch, this man-made fabric is delightfully soft but with the added 'protection' in that the fibres, in the way they interact deep within the fabric actually help in repelling dirt. With no loops for the cat to catch their claws in, with its stain resistance there is no wonder that this fabric has become known as a little bit of a wonder fabric.
And, if you are looking for an upholstery fabric for your Hamilton home that will carry on looking stunning for years on end, then take a look at Crypton super fabrics. Sounding futuristic, the possibility si that you will have come across this type of fabric already, and just not known it. If you feel your upholstery will really be put to the test in your Hamilton household, than why not choose a pattern or colour from this extensive range? Used extensively in dog bed covers, it can be easily cleaned - even scrubbed - to get stains out.
And, if that wasn't enough to convince you, it is also rather delightfully hydrophobic - in other words, it repels moisture - but not only that, it is also microbe resistant. With more of us concerned about the bacteria and other germs that seem to be able to invade our homes, this is a welcome additional defence in keeping the home clean.
Upholstery projects are fun and exciting, with so many fabric choices too it is almost impossible to choose…
