Where To Buy Fabric To Reupholster Chair ~UPD~



You can buy upholstery fabric at a fabric store, either locally or online. Many upholsterers have fabric swatches or books that you can look through as well."}},"@type": "Question","name": "What is upholstery fabric?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Upholstery fabric is a fabric made for covering furniture. It's generally heavier and more durable than most fabrics used for clothing or bedding.","@type": "Question","name": "What is the most durable fabric for upholstery?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "That depends on what you're upholstering and what the furniture will be used for. A heavy-duty synthetic microfiber will be the most stain-resistant and easiest to care for, so it's an excellent choice for often-used sofas or chairs. Still, high-thread-count cotton will have enough durability for less-frequently used seating in a formal dining space."]}]}] Skip to contentBetter Homes & Gardens - 100 years of powering your passions at homeSearchSearchPlease fill out this field.Log InMy AccountLog OutMagazine Subscribe Manage Your Subscription Give a Gift Subscription BHG Books BHG Archives Get Help Newsletter Sweepstakes Subscribe SearchSearchPlease fill out this field.DecoratingDecorating Rooms Choosing Color Window Treatments Interior Painting Decorating Tips & Advice Fireplace Design Ideas Seasonal Decorating Small-Space Decorating Styles & Decor Home Makeovers DIY Home Decor Traditional Home View All Home ImprovementHome Improvement Real Estate Home Exteriors Outdoor Structures DIY Home Electrical Tips & Guides Home Remodeling Porches & Outdoor Rooms Remodeling Advice & Planning Plumbing Installations & Repairs Flooring Decks View All GardenGarden Flowers Garden Pests Caring for Your Yard Container Gardens Garden Design Trees, Shrubs & Vines Houseplants Landscaping Edible Gardening Gardening By Region Plant Encyclopedia View All HousekeepingHousekeeping House Cleaning Laundry & Linens Cleaning Tips Organization Tips Closet Organization Kitchen Storage Organization Storage Solutions View All RecipesRecipes How to Cook Healthy Recipes Casseroles Chicken Recipes Desserts & Baking Slow Cooker Recipes Beef Recipes Breakfast and Brunch Recipes Global Recipes Quick & Easy Recipes View All ShoppingShopping Shop Our Collection BHG Recommends View All HolidaysHolidays St. Patrick's Day Easter Mother's Day Memorial Day Father's Day Juneteenth Traditions Entertaining View All NewsNews Home Trends Food Trends Gardening Trends About Us Subscribe Log InMy AccountMy AccountLog OutMagazineMagazine Subscribe Manage Your Subscription Give a Gift Subscription BHG Books BHG Archives Get Help Newsletter Sweepstakes Follow Us BHG's Facebook BHG's Instagram BHG's Twitter BHG's Pinterest BHG's YouTube BHG's TikTok BHG's Flipboard Decorating Rooms Choosing Color Window Treatments Interior Painting Decorating Tips & Advice Fireplace Design Ideas Seasonal Decorating Small-Space Decorating Styles & Decor Home Makeovers DIY Home Decor Traditional Home View All Home Improvement Real Estate Home Exteriors Outdoor Structures DIY Home Electrical Tips & Guides Home Remodeling Plumbing Installations & Repairs Flooring Decks View All Garden Flowers Garden Pests Caring for Your Yard Container Gardens Garden Design Trees, Shrubs & Vines Houseplants Landscaping Edible Gardening Gardening By Region Plant Encyclopedia View All Housekeeping House Cleaning Laundry & Linens Cleaning Tips Organization Tips Closet Organization Kitchen Storage Organization Storage Solutions View All Recipes How to Cook Healthy Recipes Casseroles Chicken Recipes Desserts & Baking Slow Cooker Recipes Beef Recipes Breakfast and Brunch Recipes Global Recipes Quick & Easy Recipes View All Shopping Shop Our Collection BHG Recommends View All Holidays St. Patrick's Day Easter Mother's Day Memorial Day Father's Day Juneteenth Traditions Entertaining View All News Home Trends Food Trends Gardening Trends About UsSubscribeDecoratingDecorating Tips & AdviceDecorating BasicsHow to Pick the Best Upholstery Fabric for FurnitureLearn everything you need to know about durability, cleanability, soil resistance, and fading when choosing a material for your next upholstery project.By




where to buy fabric to reupholster chair



A double rub rating is not applicable to a fabric used for bedding, curtain, drapery or other applications where the fabric is not subjected to abrasion. A double rub rating applicable to fabric used for upholstery is obtained from an industry test that measures fabric resistance to typical abrasion that is expected from the use of upholstered furniture.


Under 5000 Double Rub Rating or code "LD" is suitable for home decor light duty upholstery use (not daily use, more for decorative appeal). 5000 - 14900 Double Rub Rating or code "MD" is suitable for medium use home decor upholstery applications such as living rooms. 15000 - 29900 Double Rub Rating or code "RD" is suitable for everyday regular and heavy use home decor upholstery applications. 30000 and Above Double Rub Rating or code "HD" is suitable for residential and commercial upholstery subjected to "extreme use". Code "LDO" indicates a selection of fabric that is only recommended for 'light duty outdoor' upholstery applications where cushions do not receive regular use and can be easily removed and stored away from harmful UV light when not in use. These selections are not intended for normal indoor furniture upholstery as they are not constructed to withstand the abrasion of regular use. If you are in need of a more durable outdoor fabric that can also be used for indoor upholstery, we recommend a High Performance Indoor-Outdoor Fabric from Sunbrella, Bella-Dura and Covington.


The surface wear of a fabric caused by rubbing and contact with another fabric. Association For Contract Textiles "ACT" GUIDELINES General Contract Upholstery ASTM D4157-02 (ACT approved #10 Cotton Duck) 15,000 double rubs Wyzenbeek method ASTM D4966-98 (12 KPa pressure) 20,000 cycles Martindale method Heavy Duty ASTM D4157-02 (ACT approved #10 Cotton Duck) 30,000 double rubs Wyzenbeek method ASTM D4966-98 (12 KPa pressure) 40,000 cycles Martindale method End use examples of heavy-duty installations where upholstery fabrics rated at 30,000 double rubs should be appropriate are single shift corporate, hotel rooms/suites, conference rooms and dining area usage.


  • It is typically much cheaper to reupholster a chair than to replace it. When reupholstering the seat of a dining chair, only about 1/2 yard of fabric is needed. Adding new fabric to a fully upholstered chair requires more material, but often costs less than purchasing a new chair depending on the type and amount of fabric used."}},"@type": "Question","name": "How do I figure out how much fabric I need to reupholster my chairs?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "One yard of upholstery fabric is equivalent to 3 feet long, but different fabrics can vary in width. Determine the width of your new fabric first. To calculate how much fabric you'll need to reupholster a chair, measure the surface of the current fabric and add at least 1-2 inches to allow for seams and potential fraying.","@type": "Question","name": "Can you reupholster chair over existing fabric?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Reupholstering over old fabric makes the process much easier. If your new fabric fits snugly over the furniture's original upholstery and is a darker color (or thick enough to prevent the pattern showing through), you can upholster directly over existing fabric."]}]}] .icon-garden-review-1fill:#b1dede.icon-garden-review-2fill:none;stroke:#01727a;stroke-linecap:round;stroke-linejoin:round > buttonbuttonThe Spruce The Spruce's Instagram The Spruce's TikTok The Spruce's Pinterest The Spruce's Facebook NewslettersClose search formOpen search formSearch DecorRoom Design
