Upholstery Scotland provides an upholstery service to the Inverness area.
There are so many choices of upholstery fabrics for your Inverness project that it can seem like a daunting task to choose! But, there are factors that inform this decision as, getting the wrong type of fabric may mean it does not last the test of time.
Usage - heavy or light?
The first factor you will need to consider is the usage of the item of furniture. The success of a chosen piece of upholstery for Inverness projects will depend how heavy or light a use it will get. But don't worry - there is a fabric to suit all usage variations!
Some fabrics will have a durability and a robustness that will suit heavy use, for example, an upholstered sofa in a busy, Inverness family home… or, you may have an item, that will not face such heavy use of a daily basis. An item of bedroom furniture, such as an upholstered ottoman, may be covered in a lighter fabric, such as a delicate silk.
Dining chairs are the best example of this, as they face a deluge every day. From people shuffling on them, to dropped food and drink. Again, the upholstery fabric for this kind of Inverness project will need to be robust and durable. But, there is also a range of fabrics that are pre-treated with a stain resistant chemical that means they stay looking better, for longer.
But, if you are worried about budget, you needn't be for an upholstery project for any Inverness project is actually far more cost-effective and affordable that you think. By not replacing the furniture, opting for it to be recovered instead, you will save more money in the longer term.
Likes and dislikes
But surely the best thing about investing in upholstery for any Inverness based project is the fact that really can choose what you want.
Unlike shopping for a sofa or other upholstered item in a high street store, choice is not limited. Rather than simply opting for what is there - and making the choice in a 'least disliked' basis - why not choose the fabric style, pattern and colour you really like?
From large bold patterns or block colours, the choice is infinite. But, why not a little more daring and mix and match patterns, like the upcoming trend for 2015? Choose large flowery patterns, but block colours for smaller portions, like the arms of a sofa, or the foot stool.
