How To Choose Upholstery Fabric
When buying new furniture or reupholstering existing sofa sets or chairs, remember that the fabric you choose will play a significant part in the final look of your sitting room. The type of upholstery chosen will also impact the cost and durability of your furniture. If you wish to have a well-matched and professionally designed living space, or you would like your old furniture to look new, reach out to your upholsterer and have them advise you on the project’s different aspects, especially on what fabric to use.
To help you with all your upholstery needs, the experts at Nesco Upholstery and Design have put together a few essential steps that you should follow. These steps include tips to help you figure out what’s best for your home and how to make smart upholstery choices.
1. Budget and research
Upholstery labor prices generally range from $40 to $100 per hour, not including fabric, and depending on the size of the furniture you plan on reupholstering, the price can vary considerably. Because of this, it is a great idea to do your research, find out what the charges are, and create a budget so you know how much you want to spend on the project. Additionally, once you know the labor cost, you can figure out what kind of fabric to get.
2. Choose a suitable fabric
Once you know how much you want to spend on fabric and labor costs next, you must choose from many fabric choices. There are cotton and natural fabrics, durable materials such as polyester and leather, and several other options. One way we can help make your choice is by offering you some samples shipped directly to your home, or if you want, you can come into our shop, and our salesman will help you go through sample books and narrow down the choices for you. Similarly, if you want to repurpose some fabric you already have at home, we are also happy to use it. This is the most sustainable, environmentally friendly option, and we are all for it.
3. Consult your upholsterer
Now that you have shortlisted possible fabric options and know how much you want to spend on the upholstery or reupholstery project, the next step is to consult your upholsterer so you can confirm your choice is appropriate for the project you are working on. A professional opinion is always a good idea, and their expertise and knowledge when it comes to furniture upholstery and design are invaluable.
4. Place your order
Finally, the fun part is placing your order and waiting for the professionals to deliver. A tip that you should remember when ordering upholstery fabric is to get enough fabric for the project. If you need help figuring out the correct yardage, reach out to your upholsterer, and they will help you with the calculations.
