Furniture upholstery, unlike other upholstery including rugs, curtains and table mats, is like surgery for your furniture. Wrong choices in choosing fabric can cause much damage to furniture. Whether you are updating an old favourite or refreshing a flea market find, consider these three tips to help you choose the right fabric for furniture:

Tip #1: Prep the furniture with durable wood finish

It is important to ensure that the furniture is sturdy, corner braces are firm and the overall structure is stable. If the furniture looks old and worn out, use furniture paint to revamp it. With little imagination and some expertise, you can turn your old furniture into something new and amazing. If you wish to take the DIY route, explore a range of tools and paints for wooden furniture from Berger iPaint DIY range!

Tip #2: Pick the right colours

Upholstery fabric colours can have such a dramatic impact on the space. So begin by asking yourself what mood you wish to create- whether you are attracted to bold hues or would prefer subtle, pastel colours. Remember to pick colours that you can live with for years on end, and not just something that happens to be trending now and can be outdated soon. Pair up the furniture with pillows, rugs, mats and more with complementing and contrasting colours and patterns.

Tip #3: Think about design style

Just like colour and patterns, upholstery fabrics are important in creating different themes in a space. For example, linen works best for casual and modern furniture whereas silk appears formal and can be used in traditional, elegant set-up. A simple, safe idea to follow would be to match modern fabrics with contemporary furniture and traditional fabric with classic furniture.

In addition to wall stencils, think about decorating the wall itself. Try out a bright and bold colour to create an accent wall or bring in a pattern with stencilling or other decorative paint techniques (think geometric prints, ombré effect or mandala drawings). These decorative accents will have an even bigger impact in a small space.

Paint A Mural

Let your walls transport you to another place by including a mural. Whether you hand paint it if you are the artsy kind or choose a wall covering, the mural will have a dramatic impact.

Wall dampness and paint peeling are not something you want to see in a newly renovated home. It could mean that your beautiful paint job can get ruined. And no homeowner wants to deal with that, especially after spending a considerable amount of time and money on renovation.

Carrying out scientific house waterproofing during a renovation not only enhances the aesthetics but also protects the structural integrity of the house. Here’s why you should speak to Berger Homeshield Waterproofing experts if you’re planning a home renovation anytime soon:

Risk Prevention

In the preventive risk management of a house or building, it is important to have the right waterproofing solutions to protect its assets. If not done properly, it can result in damage to the property, valuables and even the health of the occupants.

Prevents Onset of Health Problems

Dampness issues in the ceiling and wall can result in a build-up of mould and mildew. This will create spores that can result in various respiratory health problems with long-term exposure.

Save Unnecessary Cost

It is wiser to invest in preventive risk measures than pay for repairs and damages later. Any building requires regular upkeep and maintenance to protect it from damage caused by moisture, hence building waterproofing must not be an afterthought when planning repair and renovation work.

Professional Scientific Waterproofing

Berger Homeshield waterproofing experts have the training and knowledge to help plug in all dampness and leakage problems that may arise in the future. They use tools like Homeshield Moisture Meter to find any weak spots that could potentially cause leakages. Depending on the extent of water damage, they prescribe waterproofing solutions and products, setting the stage clear for renovation and repair work.
