    Great Idеаѕ For Tаblесlоthѕ

    Having your custom tablecloth created is a time to consider all your options. This piece will be well-made and last many years, so make it how you want it.

    Pick A Соlоr Any Соlоr:

    You can choose a shade that matches or compliments other parts of your home, or let the color be intense and create focus on the table. Also consider choosing fabric with shine, metallic sheen, or interesting textures.

    Think Big And Bоld Prints:

    With an all-over print, you can use a pattern to create a feel of movement, energy, excitement. 

    Use Faux Leather:

    Faux leather fabric is perfect for creating a strong, rustic statement piece with your tablecloth. This animal-friendly fabric creates a comfortable tabletop.

    Dоn’t Fоrgеt Thе Edges:

    Adding visual interest to the edges of your tablecloth can make people take notice. You can have a wide hem, ribbon, corner tassels, what would you like?

    Length:

    Your table cloth can be anywhere from just a runner down the center of the table to floor-length, and anywhere in between. Do you want the table legs to show? Just the feet? Will people’s legs be tucking under? Consider your length options.

    Shape Matters:

    There are, of course, square, round and rectangular table cloths. Have you considered other shapes, like scallop-edged, or splat-shaped so that the corners hang to long points?

  • Use Custom Bedding to Make Your Bed Luxurious

    custom bedding, made-to-order pillows, duvets, bed skirts

    Everyone wants to feel like they can relax in their home. How does one make their home as comfortable as possible? There are many approaches, but almost all of them come back to expressing our personal style. You want your home to feel uniquely yours. And what is more personal and comforting that your bed?

    Our beds are like our homes within our homes. Aside from wanting a mattress and a pillow that cradle your body correctly for you, there are many more ways of customizing and personalizing your unique sleep space. If you’ve never considered it before, you should consider having the perfect custom bedding created for you.

     

    Why Custom Bedding?

    Beds are extremely personal. If you’ve been bedding shopping you’ve found sets and individual pieces of all kinds. Kind of. There are actually many styles missing, and limitations on what sort of textures or colors are available any given season. If you’ve evaluated your room, your style, and come up with your wants and needs in bedding, you’ve probably already gotten too specific to choose from what the marketplace has available to you.

    Custom bedding allows you to pick generally higher quality materials than are available in pre-made bedding and choose which elements to match, which to contrast, and which to use complementarily. Instead of having all the little decisions made for you about hems, fabrics, insulation, etc, you can choose for yourself.

     

    Bedspreads

    A bedspread is the topmost layer on your bed, covering sheets in warm weather or blankets in cold weather. It gives a crisp, clean appearance and is easy to launder. It’s always relatively lightweight and thin compared to other warmth layers. These can have fitted corners to make your bed look extra classy.

     

    Comforters

    A comforter is usually filled with a natural or synthetic insulator, like down or polyester. With large quilted bevels, it keeps you warm without weighing you down. Having your comforter made-to-order allows you to choose warmer, cooler, lighter, heavier, softer and firmer materials.

     

    Duvets

    A duvet is another name for a “comforter cover”. These are easily laundered and they can also change the look of your comforter. You can even have a duvet made that fits both your summer and your winter warmth layers.

     

    Dust Ruffles/Bed Skirts

    Bed skirts are both decorative and functional. They block the view of the underbed area, or any ugly bed frame legs, while making your bed look deeper and larger. They also keep dust from collecting under the bed and stifle what would have been drafty air on your ankles in the morning. These can be ruffly looking, or crisp with box pleats or smooth sides.

     

    Throw Pillows

    Having the right throw pillows made is a lifestyle changer. You can finally have attractive decorative pillows that happen to fit in your back just right, prop you up perfectly for reading, or fit between your knees just how you sleep best. Whatever job they do for you at night, they can transition into looking perfect on your bed during the day.

     

    Pillow Shams

    Pillow shams are pillow cases, but generally better made and having a more secure closure than the ones that come with sheet sets. They often have a border or edge that make them look especially nice. Having custom pillow shams made allow you to match them to or contrast them with other bedroom elements, and tie the existing pillows you already have in with your new bedding.

    Your bed can be any way you want it to be, and that is a wonderful thing.

     

  • Reupholstering Cаn Bring Nеw Lіfе Tо Your Furniture

    upholstery, fabric, furniture Do you have a sentimentally irreplaceable sofa or couch that is damaged? Have pets, family, overnight guests, and life in general brought some severe wear and tear to your furniture? The solution doesn’t always have to be to pour thousands of dollars into redecorating a room. Consider reupholstering your furniture.

    Reupholstering furniture can be the perfect way to liven up and change a room you’ve grown tired of, all while keeping the shape and lines of the furniture you fell in love with so long ago.

    Reupholstery is the restoration of the webbing, springs, frame, and fabric of existing furniture. You can trust an upholstery shop to renew their furniture when the frame is of high quality but the upholstery needs to be repaired or renewed.

    Mony people build their reems around the sizes and shapes of their existing furniture. That may mean a huge outlay to change many other elements in yoru rooms if you buy new furnishings. This makes renewing upholstery a good option budget-wise. Furniture is paramount to a room’s overall decor. Re-upholstery is a fashionable and more economical option than purchasing new furniture.

    8 Reasons People Choose to Reupholster Their Furniture:

    Reupholstery Extends to the Entire Piece

    Rеuрhоlѕtеrу іѕ not juѕt the replacement of fabric; іt еxtеndѕ to thе rераіr оr rерlасеmеnt of ѕрrіngѕ, fоаm, раddіng, аnd wооd.

    Restoring or Redesigning Quality Pieces

    For many people, they realize their furniture piece is still in great shape except for the fabric or cushioning, and its quality construction has lasted longer than same of their newer pieces. Older constructions are often of higher quality and should be preserved. Furniture built with solid hardwood, 8-way hand-tied coil springs, and solid construction are quality pieces worth saving.

    Styles Change

    Oftentimes in life, people’s styles change. It could be new preferences for color, patterns or design. Or the combining of households. There is certainly no reason to waste a good piece of furniture or dump it into a landfill. For some, new fabrics may be needed because there are children or pets in the home now.

    Customization

    Choose from our collection of designer fabrics, decorative accents, and cushion inserts to create a unique piece of furniture that suits you perfectly.

    Sentimental Reasons

    Another major reason for reupholstering is purely sentimental. Your chair, sofa or loveseat may be your favorite piece of furniture, or maybe you inherited a piece from your parents, grandparents, or favorite aunt. Sometimes everyone in the family loves a piece, including the dog!

    Cost

    Reupholstery costs less than a comparable-quality new piece of furniture. Our fabrics span a wide range in price, so we can work within your budget.

    Go Green

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Reupholster. Keep beautiful furniture out of landfills using our wide variety of recycled and environmentally friendly fabrics.

    Reupholstery Helps Save the Environment

    Buying new furnishings signals furniture manufacturers to use more raw materials to create more low-quality furnishings. We’ll use only the materials and resources we need to restore your already rugged and strong frame to its former glory. You’ll help save the planet and your favorite furnishings simultaneously.

    Remember, not all furniture has to be the same pattern. Matching in color schemes or choosing complimentary colors is sure to give you a vibrant and chic look like you had an interior designer come in and design your home. That old furniture will look brand new with new stuffing and new life added to it.

    In the end, the decision is up to you. You’re the one who’s spend countless hours sitting in your chair or sofa. You’re the one who knows just how solidly it’s built. If you feel that this piece of furniture is worth saving, upholstery repair may be the best option.

And reupholstering definitely does that!

    But that’s not all that fresh upholstery can do for you!

    New Upholstery Reduces Allergens in Your Home

    Having a piece of furniture reupholstered doesn’t just change how clean it looks and feels- it changes how clean that chair IS. For people that are allergen-sensitive, or for furniture that has lived with pets for years, the application of fresh fabrics can notably change the histamine reactions of people around the item. This is an effect you won’t get from running a wet-vac over your couch or fabreezing your ottoman.

    The Right Upholstery Can Hide or Repel Pet Hair

    If you’re more allergic to seeing tufts of your fur-baby’s hair everywhere that to the pet themselves, reupholstering can help you. You can make the hair stand out less with furry tan fabric to match your faun shaggy dog, or pick a salt-and-pepper houndstooth to go with your black and white hounds.

    If you’d rather repel than disguise the hair, you can choose slick real and faux leathers, shiny soda-shop style plastics, and other wipe-clean options.

    Create a Whole New Look and Feel in Your Home

    Have you become more minimalist than your busy floral pattern couch is? Maybe you never were as boring as the tan chairs in the breakfast nook. Because furniture is so central to a room, any changes you make to the texture, color, or form of your furniture has the power to change a room.

    By refurbishing with a fabric that fits your personality better, you can change the impression created by the pieces you already have in your home. Trade in something scratchy and dull for velvety and bright. Or switch out busy and distracting for smooth and relaxing. To add to your dramatic change, you can paint the visible wood and metal portions of many chairs, too.
