High-quality commercial upholstery can completely transform the interior décor of any office. Here’s how office owners can make the most of these fabrics:
Choosing upholstery fabric for new sofas, armchairs, and other seating arrangements is not a simple or carefree process. Office owners must understand that their choices will result in either year of comfort and aesthetic appeal in their offices or months of battling snags and stains. Furthermore, the commercial upholstery must perfectly complement the office décor and style. Small mistakes in upholstery selection can lead to a slew of problems.
Here’s how to choose high-quality upholstery fabric:
Recognise the Fabric Selection Process
Office owners should consider the durability, style, and comfort of commercial upholstery when making their selections. All fabrics, paddings, webbings, and springs should ideally be super-soft and comfortable. However, because most modern upholstered items are made of metal springs or synthetic foam, office owners may have to sacrifice ultimate comfort in order to achieve durability and cost-effectiveness.
Fabrics, thankfully, can compensate for the lack of comfort by being smooth and soft. However, overly soft upholstery may show signs of wear and tear after months of regular use. It is impossible to learn all of these details about upholstery in a few minutes. That is why office owners should request multiple sample kits to be evaluated for a week before making upholstery decisions.
What are the Upholstered Items?
The size, shape, and design of the furniture that needs to be upholstered must be considered by office owners. Larger pieces of furniture, contrary to popular belief, are easier to upholster. This is due to the fact that buyers spend months determining whether the upholstery is appropriate for their needs. That is the level of commitment that office managers must have to other smaller furnishings in their offices.
Consider the Uses
When shopping for upholstery fabrics, office managers should prioritise their practical needs as this will assist them in selecting the best type of material. For example, choosing silk velvet for high-traffic sofas is not a good idea because the fabric can easily become dirty or damaged. That is why it is critical to consider the material’s expected use, contents, and maintenance requirements.
To know what they’re getting into, owners must carefully read product labels. They should not be afraid to enquire about the fabric’s lifespan and cleaning requirements. It’s perfectly acceptable to shop around for the perfect upholstery. Choosing upholstery that is naturally sensitive and short-lived is not! Upholstery is expensive, and buyers must ensure that it is not damaged by spills, sunlight, or other factors.
Choosing Luxurious Options
Some office owners want to show off the décor of their office spaces, so they purchase luxurious commercial upholstery such as Tibetan mohair or Belgian linen. These opulent fabrics are understandably pricey. They can, however, be stain and damage resistant.
However, the use of luxurious upholstery should be restricted to specific areas of an office. For example, installing luxurious upholstery in a private lounge where only a few people visit is a good idea. Using these high-priced upholsteries in high-traffic areas, on the other hand, almost guarantees that the fabric will appear wrinkled or crispy after only a few days of use.
