Best Upholstery for Dogs
Which upholstery is best for pets? The best couch fabrics for dogs will be those that are resistant to scratching, dirt, and stains. Of course, you will also want something that isn't a fur magnet. When buying furniture or reupholstering, there is a range of fabrics to consider, but three that score exceptionally well with pets include leather, microfiber, and velvet. Leather will not act as a dirt magnet, and dark-colored leather will be quite stain-resistant but is prone to get scratched by pet paws. However, scratches are not a big deal for some as they see them as giving character to the upholstery. Microfiber has a high stain and scratch-resistant rating but will be a bit more prone to stains than leather. As fancy as velvet sounds, it can actually be a great upholstery fabric for those with pets to choose. Its tight weave and short pile make it relatively easy to clean and very resistant to scratching. And a simple protective coating will increase its resistance to stains.
Best Upholstery for Kids
If you live in a busy household where your upholstery experiences everyday wear and tear, it will be important to choose a durable upholstery fabric such as microfiber or leather. If your kids are younger, your furniture may be more prone to messes. If that is the case, you may consider choosing a fabric such as faux leather that will not soak in messes as quickly, allowing you to clean them up before they become a bigger problem. With children in the home, even the color of upholstery that you choose will be important. Colors such as browns, grays, and darker colors will hide stains much easier than others.
The Best Way to Clean Upholstery
