Churches require maintenance and with that comes having to care for upholstery fabric as well. Although a lot of churches have wooden seats, there is still a need for upholstery fabric in other places. Usually, I notice upholstered pieces such as the pews, confession box, and the seats on the altar for the speakers and the priests. In other churches with more lavish interiors, they sometimes even have cushioned seats. For interior designers or church goers who would like to contribute to the overall look of their place of worship, here are some useful tips.
Tips for Choosing Upholstery Fabric for Churches
A church has to look presentable while remaining conducive for praying and reflection. Here are some factors to consider when choosing upholstery fabric for churches and some tips on which fabric to choose:
Apart from the upholstery fabric used in churches, I also noticed how the furniture pieces tend to match with the drapery fabric. Drapery fabrics usually have woven designs into them which make them more expensive—especially if those designs were handcrafted. Because of this, choosing upholstery fabric to match the drapery fabric should be given time and attention to help ensure that what you will be spending on would have a great overall appearance for the church.
Bring swatches of fabric if you can, and have a color scheme in mind before heading to the upholstery supply store. This way, you can rest assured that the fabric you choose won’t clash and that the church will have a well-coordinated look that the church goers will appreciate.
