Upholstering Your Headboard

As the year-end draws near, it’s time to look around your bedroom and see what needs to change. Small changes like using different color schemes for sheets and blankets, and using patterned pillowcases are great to start with. However, if you want to transform your bedroom, a big project like upholstering your headboard is something you should consider. Here are some tips on how to design your upholstered headboard:

Use Bold Colors


Most rooms are painted with lighter colors. This is why adding deeper colors wouldn’t hurt. Use bold statement colors like royal blue, bright red, lime, pink, or even purple! This will help create a focal point in your bedroom. Make sure to use complementary colors for the sheets and pillowcases.

Use Patterns


When people think of upholstered headboards, the first thing that comes to mind is plain fabric. While most headboards use plain fabrics, patterned fabric is a great option if you want to add a little personality to your room. Patterns or prints like vintage, contemporary, southwestern, or floral, are all perfect for upholstered headboards. Just make sure to choose a color scheme that works with the rest of your bedroom

Not sure what kind of fabric to choose? Our helpful staff can help you pick! Head over to our store at 3105 N Campbell Ave., Tucson and choose from over 10,000 bolts of fabric!

Add Decorative Accessories


Want to add something more to your upholstered headboard? Adding some accessories like decorative nails, trims, and tufted buttons can tie the look together. You can have them in contrasting or complementary colors. You can choose to have the same color as the upholstery. The sky’s the limit when it comes to choosing headboard accessories.

Custom Projects For Every Room in Your Home

Refreshing your furniture? We’ve all been there. We spend hours looking for decorating inspiration online only to find the same trend over and over. When all else fails, let your imagination loose and think about how you would want your home to look. Don’t know where to start? Here’s a list of custom home projects for every room in your home.

 

Living Room


When choosing or replacing the furniture in your living room, seats, throws, and slipcovers should take priority over any other furniture, as they are the most used.

Accent Chairs - Start with accent chairs. This is the best way to break the monotony in any space is to use contrasting or complementary colors or patterns. Some accent chairs also look great with multi-fabric upholstery.

Ottomans - Ottomans are also a great addition to any living room, as it doubles as a seat and extra storage.

You may also use ottomans as an extension of your couch, or use it as a footstool.

Couches - Loveseats or three-seater couches? It depends on the amount of space you have of course! Regardless of the size, your couch is the centerpiece of the room, so you should be careful when choosing the fabric for upholstery. Couches usually have neutral colors (or patterns) so it’s easy to contrast with other chairs and throws.

Slipcovers - Slipcovers for your chairs and couches are great too if you want to change your style once in a while.

Dining Room


Dining Chairs - How do you choose the right fabric for your dining chairs? For starters, it depends on the type of material the chair is made of. There’s also size to consider, and the type of table you have. The best fabrics to use are stain-resistant fabrics like microfiber, or even outdoor performance fabrics Sunbrella.

Bedroom


When we think of the bedroom, the first thing that comes to mind is comfort. It’s not just about physical comfort - it’s also about how your bedroom looks.

Headboards - Headboards don’t only protect your walls from scratches, they give you visual comfort. If you’re the expressive type, you can also use the headboard as decor. You can use a variety of fabrics to upholster your headboard - from linen to velvet. Tufted headboards look great in more classic bedrooms, while leather headboards are perfect for a more industrial feel.

Bedding - Why settle for plain old sheets when you want to have maximum physical and visual comfort?

The most common - and perhaps the most comfortable - fabrics used for sheets and mattress covers are linen and cotton.

Backyard


Sometimes we just want to relax outdoors without leaving the comfort of our own homes. When choosing outdoor or patio furniture, consider fabrics that are comfortable, but at the same time, able to withstand the wear and tear.

Patio Furniture - From couches to throws, umbrellas to awnings, the best outdoor fabric should be able to withstand the wear and tear. How do you determine if a fabric is strong enough? Ask your local fabric store about double rubs or abrasion rating. An abrasion rating of 20,000 should be enough for heavy use.

Having custom furniture made to your specifications will make your home look one of a kind, a space that you can truly call your own. Fabrics That Go can help you turn your ideas into reality. Visit our store or contact us today.
