Custom Sofa Fabrics
Make sure you talk to whoever is making it for you, and really discuss your needs. Here are some things you might want to consider:
Strength of Fabric
When considering the fabric, you need to think about how durable it is. Fabrics like heavy cotton last a long time and are not easily torn; leather also lasts a long time and is a very trendy decorating style, but it can be punctured or scratched; velvets and microfiber are soft and very comfortable, but can wear out or get thin with time. In general, cotton and linen seem to last the longest out of fabrics-but they are more difficult to clean. So it’s all about what is more important to you in your sofa fabric.
Texture of Fabric
Whether your household is a little crazier with kids or pets, or you’re just accident-prone with drinks and food, you might want to choose a fabric that is easy to clean. Leather and similar synthetic versions of leather are very easy to clean and can just be wiped down with a damp cloth. However, once it is stained, it is much harder to get out than with other fabrics. It is easier to get stains out of cotton and linen, however, for every day cleaning of dirt, dust, or pet hair, it requires at least vacuuming, and can get tedious.
It is probably best in any case to get a darker colored fabric or at least a lighter fabric with a darker pattern. This will hide stains, and ensure that you won’t have to be constantly cleaning and re-cleaning your buying custom sofas, make sure you weigh the pros and cons of all your fabric options, so that once it’s made, you can enjoy your beautiful sofa for many years to come.
