Creating the Perfect Arizona Backyard

It may not seem like it, but spring is just around the corner. With spring comes warmer weather - and with the temperature rising, what better way to enjoy it than to relax outside in your backyard? Here are a few tips and tricks to create the perfect backyard:

 

Garden


One step in creating the perfect oasis is to garden. Whether you’re planting flowers, bushes, or vegetables, make sure you plan for the right plants for the season! It may take more time than you can bear to wait, but consider planting a tree. When it grows, it will provide natural shade and cooler temperatures in your backyard.

Update Your Patio Furniture


You can replace your old patio furniture completely, or you can reupholster what you already have using the same fabric as your umbrella. Fabrics That Go offers full service upholstery and can order Sunbrella fabric to arrive in just a few days. Hot tip: Sunbrella fabric doesn’t need to be used solely outside - it’s great for indoor furniture as it cleans up easily for both spills and homes with pets!

Replace Your Umbrella


If you don’t want to wait for a tree to grow to give off natural shade, purchase a patio umbrella or replace the torn fabric on an old one! When looking to replace old umbrella fabric, make sure you choose the right one. It needs to be water resistant and not fade easily in the sun. Consider using Sunbrella fabric - famous for its durability and wide range of colors available. You can find this fabric at your Tucson’s own Fabrics That Go!

Install An Awning


Another shade solution is to install an awning. There are many options to choose from, but remember, you don’t have to replace the whole awning if just the fabric is torn. If you find your current or future awning fabric has not held up, replace it with Fabrics That Go. They will remove, measure and install for you!

Once you have made all these updates to your home, relax in your new (or feels like new) furniture under the shade of your umbrella or awning. Remember to thank Fabrics That Go for making your life easier and your home feel refreshed and renewed!

There are many places you can decorate pillows with. The most common is your couch.

EXTERIOR

How The Boho Chic Movement Is Bringing Back Southwestern Fabric

Bohemian style is known as portraying a carefree, eclectic design. Boho-chic is taking the bohemian style and bringing it together with some modern flair. Most designers will look to using furnishings and lighting to bring in the modern touches while sticking to decor pieces like pillows, rugs, art, and bringing in fabrics/textiles to the furniture to give the bohemian feel. Fabrics and textiles to consider using include those that pull from Moroccan influences, Native American, and the growing popularity of Southwestern.

When looking to add the boho look, keep an eye out for fabrics and pieces that have a nomadic vibe. This includes the Southwestern style. Combine the fabrics and textiles with wood and metallic accents.

The boho chic style is making a comeback due to rising popularity of a vintage feel, but wanting to still have a put together look. It celebrates history and culture in a way that others may not think of right away.

If you’re looking to save some money or are having trouble finding the right look for your boho chic style, you can consider doing a few small DIY projects. Here are some ideas to bring this style into your home -

DIY Macrame Wall Decor


Macrame is extremely popular in design. You can find something similar in a store like Urban Outfitters but pay triple the price that you would pay if you were to make it yourself.

All it takes is a couple hours of braiding/knotting, fabric, and a wooden dowel. Google or YouTube a tutorial and you’ll find plenty to follow along to.

DIY Reupholster


Using the right fabric is important to the look/feel of boho chic. It can be difficult to find the right furniture in store, so what better way than to have custom furniture? Take an older piece (or less expensive) and find a boho type fabric - such as Southwestern - and reupholster it! It can be intimidating, but there are plenty of DIY instructions online.

DIY Trinkets and Pillows


A jewelry or catch-all tray can easily become boho-chic with a little gold/silver metallic paint paired with a pop of reds, purples, or bright blues.

Are you having trouble finding any of these specific fabrics? A local Tucson company called Fabrics That Go have over 10,000 bolts of fabric to choose from. You’ll be able to find everything from buttons to decorative nails.

Sunbrella for Outdoor Upholstery

Everyone wants to keep up with the trends when it comes to the look of our living spaces, even patio furniture, considering how much time is spent outside enjoying the weather. We want it to be attractive and inviting.  Choosing the right material for your outdoor furniture cushion covers can make or break the space. Materials vary from color, to fabric type, and the usage. So let us focus on some tips in deciding what material to use for outdoor upholstery. After all, quality is very important because you want it to last. Sunbrella is the most trusted outdoor fabric, known for it’s resilience to harsh weather, that you can use for your outdoor upholstery. Find out why.

What is Sunbrella?

Sunbrella is an outdoor fabric that is made of 100% Acrylic Fiber. Acrylic fiber has the ability to dry quickly from moisture. It also has flexible aesthetics: wool-like, cotton-like, and blended appearance. Unlike other fabrics, Sunbrella can be easily cleaned. Think of the benefits that you can get out of this material!

Water Resistant

Since it is a high quality outdoor fabric, rest assured that you don’t only get to use it as a shade protector but you can also use it as a roof when it rains (umbrellas, canopies, etc). Aside from that, this fabric can be used as fabric for your cushion in your outdoor furniture. So even if you leave your cushion when the rain pours, they are safe.

Stain Resistant

Cleaning fabric, especially on furniture can be a pain to clean. But if the fabric that you are using for your furniture is sunbrella, you don’t have to worry out about stains. You can simply clean it by spraying it with water and it rinses away those spills. Saving you time and money!

Fade Resistant

Outdoor furniture is exposed to harsh weather conditions, like rain or sun. When fabric is too exposed they damage easily. Fading is probably the most common problem in locations with a lot of sun. Since Sunbrella fabric is made up of dyed acrylic fiber, it is believed to produce a long-lasting color to your fabric. Maintaining its attractiveness will never be an issue.

Mildew and Mold Proof

Another concern with our outdoor furniture is dust, moisture, or organic debris, since the cushions are left outside. Leave it to Sunbrella. Sunbrella is also mildew resistant, cleaning this fabric with a mixture of water/bleach will never cause the colors of the fabric to fade.

Easy to Clean

With all the benefits mentioned above, it is clear that Sunbrella is very easy to clean. Its properties make it easy to spray and wipe away any mess or spills. You just need water, bleach and soap, then you are done.

What do we do for our customers?

At Fabrics That Go, we always want the best for our customers. We make sure that when they bring in their old patio furniture or cushions for reupholstery, they bring it home with new life. When you visit the Fabrics That Go Store, check out the 255 different styles and prints.

You can change the covers anytime since our designs come with zippers. Sunbrella is the highest recommendation that we can give you when it comes to outdoor furniture, and we are happy to be your local supplier.
