Causes of Upholstery Damage
If you’re unsatisfied with your furniture upholstery for any reason, you should consider having it replaced. Here are a few common reasons why people get their furniture reupholstered.
- Moving Accidents: A lot can go wrong during the moving process. If your furniture’s upholstery gets snagged and torn while moving, you may need to invest in new fabric.
- Food/Animal Stains: If you allow people to enjoy foods and beverages on your living room furniture, there’s a good chance you’ll end up with an irremovable stain. The same goes for pets.
- Sunlight: Your furniture’s fabric will fade after prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays. Eventually, the fabric will become so faded that you’ll need to get it replaced.
Popular Funiture Upholstery Options
Once you decide to reupholster your furniture, you’ll face two choices: choose a similar fabric or opt for a completely different fabric. Here are a few popular furniture upholstery materials from Discount Fabrics.
- Leather: Leather is elegant, comfortable, and durable. You might also try faux leather if you’re looking to save a little money.
- Chenille: Chenille is a soft, warm fabric that is excellent for chairs and sofas. However, it’s not a great choice for pet owners. Cats are especially fond of scratching chenille.
- Velvet: Velvet is a famously luxurious fabric that can complement any upscale décor. Velvet is also soft and welcoming to the touch.
- Brocade: Brocade fabric typically has a raised design over a flat background. Brocade is excellent for style, but not as comfortable as other fabrics.
- Vinyl: Vinyl is popular because it’s durable and easy to keep clean. Most vinyls are also relatively inexpensive.
