There are so many kinds of upholstery fabric to choose from, and recently, one of the more popular options when it comes to furniture interior decorating is the microfiber upholstery fabric. This kind of fabric may sound like a scientific breakthrough because of the term “microfiber,” and from what I’ve read about it, it does have quite a lot of good qualities which would make you want to have it on your furniture pieces as well.
Qualities of Microfiber Upholstery Fabric
The top benefit I’ve heard about having a microfiber fabric is that it is a pet-friendly kind of upholstery fabric. This is especially true if you have cats that tend to love scratching on the pieces of furniture inside the home. A lot of pet owners swear by this benefit, and if you would to put an end to the problem of cats scratching on your furniture, microfiber fabric is the way to go. The smooth texture of microfiber fabric does not appeal to the scratching urges that cats have for other more textured fabrics.
Smooth to the touch, microfiber is not really tightly woven, but it is durable and great for use on couches. It is also very easy to clean if you are concerned with pet hair, since the smooth surface does not cling unto pet hair as strongly as other more fibrous surfaces do. Cleaning it with a lint remover or wiping it off with a towel can make it look good as new. This makes it a popular choice for those who do not want to go through a difficult cleaning process for their pieces of furniture. You can easily run a vacuum cleaner over it, so clean up is a breeze!
Microfiber upholstery fabric also comes in a lot of color options ranging from dark to light colors, even white and cream shades. Since it is easy to clean, you won’t have to worry about too much dirt showing on it. It is a great choice for those who have kids who love to play around or pets who love going to different places. Despite its being a synthetic kind of fabric, it gives a lot of benefits when it comes to maintenance and ease of cleaning. Also, it is durable and will last in a good state for years to come.
This kind of fabric is also able to hold colors really well, which is why they still look nice and fresh over the years. Since it has a polyester base, it is durable and won’t suffer easily from the wear and tear you put it through. Since liquids aren’t easily absorbed by the microfiber upholstery, stains won’t be too much of a problem, especially for those who choose to have darker shades of this fabric.
Overall, I’d recommend microfiber upholstery fabric to anyone who would like to achieve a modern look for the pieces of furniture at home, and for those who are highly concerned about how easy it would be to clean.
