Choosing the perfect fabric for upholstering

When something has good bones but needs a bit of rejuvenation that is when reupholstering becomes a great idea.  Almost anything old can be made like new again with a bit of upholstery.  Couches, chairs, car interior, boat interior, bags, and more can all be made more unique, comfortable, and like new with some upholstery fabric.  Before you start to choose what to buy you should answer the following questions:


  1. What type of furniture or item are you reupholstering? Purpose, size, and design will all be a factor in your choice.
  2. Where will the finished piece be placed or used?  Accounting for important factors like exposure to sunlight, potential spills, or high foot traffic is important.
  3. What is your desired aesthetic or style? Do you want traditional, eclectic, or modern vibes?
  4. Do you have specific color preferences? Some fabric is available in more color options than others.
  5. What are your other requirements or concerns? Are there allergy or pet considerations? Do you have any other specific needs that need to be addressed?
