What should I consider when buying plain upholstery fabrics?

Plain upholstery fabrics can be used in a variety of ways, but there are some important things to keep in mind, such as:

  • Where to use plain upholstery fabrics: Plain upholstery fabrics can look beautiful and elegant but may be less successful if you have to worry about pets or small children climbing on or using your upholstered item. Stains and dirt will be more visible on plain fabrics than patterned ones.
  • Colour:If you are using a strong colour, a large upholstered item could overpower a small space even when using plain upholstery material. Also, beware of items that may be in contact with direct sunlight, as fading will be evident in bright colours.
  • Texture:To ensure that your upholstered object is not boring to look at, consider using a textured fabric. This could include velvet, leather, corduroy, linen or other fabrics with a textured weave that will add interest to your upholstered item.

Other items to keep in mind when purchasing upholstery fabric is the weight and type of fabric - a lightweight, thin fabric may wear and tear easily, while a thick, tapestry type fabric will be unsuitable for intricate pleats or joins. A higher thread count on fabric is usually a sign that the fabric will be more durable.
