Change is the only constant and from time to time, you need to do the same with your home too. Though, inarguably, changing into a new property with brand new everything would be an excellent idea, it is quite impossible for most of the folks. Thus, you need to be tricky for the same. Thankfully, changing into a new set of fabric by buying upholstery fabric usually does the trick, particularly in India. However, in doing so, it is quite common for people to lose track of time and particularly the expense.
Thus, they end up incurring more currency than initially intended to. It can cause several individuals to even lose interest in fabric shopping in future. To keep such an unfortunate thing far away from our lives, we bring you some of the key points to stick to while fabric shopping.
1. Always shop with a plan
No matter how tempting an impulse shopping may seem or feel, it is always best to stick with a plan. Mainly because often impulse buying surpasses the intended budget by a huge margin. Also, out of enthusiasm, you might miss the point to picture the fabric in your living room, or against the color and texture of the other fabrics and walls of your home.
Thus, always spend adequate hours on buying upholstery fabrics, so that you make the best purchase at the best time.
2. Keep a track of changes in price
From time to time, the price of various fabric rises and drops as per demand, seasonal festivals and other factors. So keep this point in mind, while deciding a budget and also while executing the same. Try to be a little flexible about the same and keep an extra amount for just in case the price goes up.
3. Buy an extra unit of fabric
Getting extra fabrics is always better than running out of it. Thus, having an additional unit is always recommended, let it be an extra meter for a curtain or an extra piece of a cushion cover. It comes handy to cover up any mishaps that might occur during installation or so, without spending thousands to cover it up by professionals. Moreover, often a particular product comes in a specific color and in case you run short of the same, without the backup, you will have to settle for a mismatch color patches.
Even though we suggest ways to minimize the excess cost, do spend as much as you can on getting quality fabrics as Nino Cerruti had rightly said,
“Only an excellent fabric can originate an excellent fashion.”
