First of all, take a look around the place. Make some sketches of your room and try to first place your sofa on paper. Here is some advice:
What makes the reupholstering easier is the fact that the fabric covering the sofa is usually stapled in sections. It isn't a single fabric that needs to fit over the sofa framework like a glove on a hand. Ergo, the job involves removing each section of the covering and replacing each section in the reverse order. Besides that, you need to cut the new fabric, according to the sections of the old one. In a nutshell, you are going to surgically strip the sofa and put a new covering in place. Let us look at the procedure in more detail.
There are numerous fabrics available out there, that actually make the entire process of choosing one that is suited for your needs very challenging. There are a number of points to keep in mind while choosing the fabric, the biggest one being, do you have pets? Cats and dogs can easily claw into the light fabric within hours of your new and proud purchase. So you have to choose a fabric that is resistant to all their torture. The next thing to keep in mind is that do you have kids, as they can cause more mess compared to your pets. The third point is the purpose of the sofa (decorative/utilitarian). For instance, if you're purchasing a sofa where you expect to be sleeping every once in a while, then leather ones will not be a great choice. You may rather opt for a softer fabric. Apart from this, how often will the sofa be used should also be considered? Is it in a den where you spend an hour or two, or the living room where you spend your full day? Finally, a fabric for the sofa has to be chosen keeping in mind the overall theme and pattern of interior designing in the room you are placing it in. Let's explore some options that may be best for you.
Also consider how the throw pillows will be used. If they are decorative only, then the fabric and texture can exist only to complement the decor. However, if you plan on using the pillows to lay on for reading, watching television or napping, then comfort is essential. Look for fabrics that wear well and are comfortable to the touch. Silk and other hard-to-clean fabrics may not be the best choice for living rooms that see a lot of traffic but may be perfectly suitable as decorative touches.
