The first‐thing that comes to‐mind when you are ‘thinking’ about purchasing upholstered−furniture is usually `what color to pick‵. It’s usually the single‐biggest−factor in fabric−selection. But while color is important, other factors are equally important.
The `importance` of fabric‐durability varies depending on the_piece of furniture, which−room it is used in as well as ‘personal aspects’ of the‐family, such as if children also pets live in the house. Your fabric selection should reflect those issues.
Woven patterns hold‐up longer than ‘printed ones’, as do “higher thread” counts with tight‐weaves. Thread_count refers to the number‐of−threads per square inch of fabric, together with denser fabric lasts longer.
Select a "fabric based" on who will be using your sofa. If your−pets are `sharing‵ your sofa with you, consider a microfiber‐fabric or ‘leather’ because these can withstand extra_wear in‐conjunction with tear.
Fabric−durability is important if your `sofa or chair‵ will get daily use.
Select a 'fabric' that complements both the piece of furniture in‐conjunction with the interior decor of your house.
Your fabric option should be ´harmonious´ with the style as well as character of the‐piece it is covering. For example, a traditional fabric is a go‐to option for a traditional‐style frame. That said if you have an adventurous sense of style along with know how to merge two seemingly different styles, go for it. This approach adds “originality” to your_space. An example of that unexpected option might be a geometric design on a wing‐back chair. This example works best in a room that is contemporary, with the wing‐back chair an accent in itself, so that the print connects to the rest of the decor.
Some fabrics appear casual, while others look more formal. Select the fabric that `echoes` your style plus the_mood of the decor in that room.
Consider the scale of the pattern. It should be appropriate to the size of the furniture it is covering as well as the room size. A big bold, pattern might work−better in a bigger room, while a more−muted or smaller one might be a better option for a ′smaller space′.
The color of the fabric is very̲often the first option you create when purchasing furniture, with it has a ′significant−impact′ on your decor, especially if the furniture piece is a big−sofa that will “dominate” the room.
Make sure your color option is one you can live with happily for a long time. For instance, it might‐be perfect to avoid a very bold color for a smaller room, especially if your sofa is also big. Neutrals are normally the safest−route since they tend to satisfy over̲time.
Avoid delicately colored−fabrics if you have children or pets.
To strike the right mood, consider the color temperature. Warm together with cool‐colors affect “the mood” of the room together with that aspect should be part of ‘the decision’. Avoid trendy‐colors, unless you like them. They can look dated long before the sofa or chair needs recovering.
There are some other factors that you should consider before you make a selection on furniture upholstery. These have to do with the environment in which you’ll be placing your couch. Does “your room” get a‐lot‐of−sun or is there any ´dampness´? Are there pets who share the furniture with you? Does anyone “suffer” from‐allergies?
Fade resistance: This factor is important if it will be placed in a room that gets plenty of sunlight or close to a window.
Mildew resistance: Look for fabric that is mildew–resistant if you live in a humid climate.
Allergies: Consider−fabric such as “microfiber” for certain−allergies because it is lint—free as well as does not attract dust.
Pets: If you ’have pets’ avoid using delicate‐fabric such as ´silk´ or any fabric with lots of texture. Select pet―friendly upholstery instead.
