Furniture can make or break the overall appeal of a room, which is why it is important that you have it right. Material plays a large role in how effective furniture is in each room. Leisure Lounge is discussing furniture fabric options and how to decide which one is right for your home.

3 Things to Consider When Choosing Furniture Fabric

We have three things that you need to consider when deciding on furniture fabric. Visit our blog for more tips on furnishing your home.

1. Durability

How durable material needs to be depends on a variety of different aspects. For example, an occasional chair in the corner of your guest room will rarely be used, therefore it will not need the most durable material. Same goes if you don’t have young children or pets that climb on the furniture. Evaluate your lifestyle and the use of the furniture to determine how durable it needs to be.

2. Style

You need to look at two aspects here: the style of your furniture and the style of the room. A light blue and white beach house will most likely not have a black leather couch. Ensure that your fabric suits the overall style of the room. Also evaluate the style of the furniture to ensure the fabric suits it. If the legs of the sofa are a dark wood, the item may look too gothic if you have chosen dark fabric. Ensure that the fabric compliments the style you are going for.

3. Colour

Now that you have found fabric that is durable and suits the style of item, it is time to pick a colour. Again, you are going to want to choose coloured furniture fabric that suits the overall style of the room. You are also going to want to think about other aspects that may influence the colour. Do your pets spend time on the couch? Do kids eat their snacks and just keep spilling? Does your husband work outdoors and drive you mad when he flops onto the couch after a hard day’s work? You may want to opt for darker colours if any of these sound familiar.
