How to make our Home looking classy?

If you already have furniture or upholstery at your house then all you need to do is “Reupholster” to make it looks beautiful. You can just replace the attached fabric covering your furniture by keeping few points in mind (which are mentioned below).

If you are planning to buy new upholstery for your home then you have a wide range of choice in colors, fabric, texture or pattern for your brand new upholstery. Just some tips are there that you need to remember before you decide to make a big investment.

“Your Home Should Tell The Story Of Who You Are And Be A Collection Of What You Love”

So, here are the points that will guide you in selecting right furniture for your home.

  1. Selecting right color of Upholstery


As we know how much colors affect our mind and thinking, that’s why it is given the highest priority. Again the color of your wall and floor also matters a lot.

  • For light colored walls and floors then select any dark color upholstery
  • For dark colored walls and floors then select any light or bright colors upholstery
  • Always go for the contrasting colors that will surely enhance the look of your room
  • Darks colors are usually the better option than bright colors to make your rooms look more expensive and classy.
  • Also make sure that your furniture could hide the frequent strain or dirt marks on it with it's color. For that muddy color would be best!

  1. Selecting right fabric of Upholstery


The fabric of your upholstery mainly decides the longevity of your expensive furniture. Therefore, before choosing any fabric, close your eyes and think at least once how frequently your upholstery will be used. If you feel that your furniture will be highly used then you should go for any durable fabric for it.

  • For durability, choose fabric with maximum thread count. The Thread count shows the number of threads per square inch of a fabric.
  • If your pets are going to share your sofa with you then choose fabrics like Leather, Synthetic Fibers (such as Ultrasuede, microfibers), Crypton or any other pet friendly fabric.
  • Choose the Fabric which is stain, odor and damage resistant and can be easily wiped clean.

  1. Selecting right fabric design/texture/pattern of Upholstery


The fabric style or pattern highly shows how modern or traditional you are. This is the factor that confuse you a lot when you are at the shop and wish to buy upholstery fabric. Selecting any pattern is totally up to you what look you want to give to your room. Mainly people like Casual look but someone also like to go for formal look, or any other.

But don’t forget these points that affects a lot :
  • Woven patterns are more durable than printed patterns as they tightly hold up longer than printed ones.
  • Fabric patterns can easily hide strain or dirt marks, so select the pattern accordingly.
  • Large patterns look good for large space and small patterns are best for small space.
  • You can also go for mix or multiple patterns (not more than 3) for your upholstery with few similarities and that looks better with each other.

  1. Cleaning and Maintaining your Upholstery

You are all set with your well furnished home with an awesome decor, but is it enough to show your home classy? Yes, for a duration it's enough, but it demands something more to beautify and glorify your efforts, i.e. Regular Upholstery Cleaning.


Upholstery cleaning not only helps you to make your home clean and beautiful but also saves you from innumerous germs and bacteria and creates an healthy environment for you.

How to keep your Home safe and healthier during Autumn season?

Autumn is running. Summer was averaging for airing out your house and letting that wind pass through, but as the temperature changes from summer to autumn and you close your windows, your home can be dirty by some harmful substances. As the air turns cooler and leaves drop from the trees, it's important to keep a few important Autumn safety tips in mind. With proper precautions and safety awareness, your family can enjoy that crisp autumn weather while avoiding some of the dangers that come with the season.

Home Safety during Autumn

Preparing your Home for Autumn : Home Maintenance Tips

It’s almost time for Autumn. Summer is drawing to a close, like it or not. Before the leaves fall and the wind turns chill, it’s a good idea to do some seasonal maintenance in your home. Here is some checklist for your home safety:  
Check Repairing work : Do a quick check for areas in your home that may need repair before extreme weather hits like unsteady roof shingles, warped window sills, and concrete that might be sloping toward the house.

Check for mold : The humidity of summer can cause mold to flourish. Check locations such as around leaky pipes, basements, or areas that don’t get good ventilation. Clean surfaces that tend to stay moist a while, like shower enclosures, sinks, and floor drains, with mold-busting cleansers or a homemade preparation made with a mild solution of bleach and dishwashing liquid.

Check The Air Flow : During the warm summer months, and once the weather cools, it’s possible that some rodents and insects have made themselves at home to escape the hot sun or the cold nights. Duct cleaning will throw out these vermin and also clean anything they’ve left behind. duct cleaning also improves the indoor air quality of your home.  

Change Filters: Pollen can live in your home for years. Clean or change your air conditioner and furnace filters, since pollen persists long after the hot temps turn cold. You'll cut down on pollen inside your house, and you'll lower your energy bills; clean filters allow both your heating and cooling systems to run more efficiently.

Has your Fire Safety Inspected?

Some safety tips are the same regardless of the time of year, but many safety concerns are seasonal, particularly those that involve keeping your home warm. Check all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they work, and change the batteries.
Home Maintenance during Autumn
Do not warm your kitchen with a gas range or an open oven door, as this can lead to toxic air that is not safe to breathe. Have your home heating system serviced before the cool weather sets in. This could be a furnace, central heat, chimneys, etc.

Why Cleaning is so Important during Autumn?

One great thing about the mild weather are being able to enjoy summer wind. Fresh air is good for health and also make your house smell great, but it also invites allergens into your home. Your home's carpets, fabric furniture, mattress, and curtains are the perfect source for these invaders around the entire house. If you have allergies and asthma problem, you could be punishing yourself all winter by unclean your home's interior.

Having the windows open, summer rainstorms and continuous humidity can all lead to a buildup of mold and mildew in your home. This is due to the moisture mixing with dirt and fluff that has built up. This can affect your health.  

We can take advantage of the last warm days of the year and do all the chores that are impossible to deal with in the cold season. 

Autumn cleaning isn’t all about tidying, organizing, but also about preparing our home for the winter. 

  In-Door Autumn Cleaning Tasks 

Mattress Cleaning : Wash all bedding in preparation for cooler temperatures and use very hot water, to kill dust mites and bacteria. Sprinkle the mattress with baking soda to neutralize odors, and then vacuum it up.
Autumn Season Home Cleaning
Carpet Cleaning: Carpets tend to accumulate a lot of dirt and dust and you don’t want to wait until spring to deal with this. Include carpets in your autumn cleaning chores. Shampoo all of your carpets and change your vacuum cleaner bag. When you vacuum, go over each area multiple times to get up as much dust as possible. We recommend getting a professional cleaning once a year, but you can also do a good job by renting a carpet cleaner and using some Eco-Friendly Carpet Cleaning and Sanitizing products for your health benefits.

Curtain Cleaning: In winter Curtain can’t dry easily so you can do per-preparation for winter during the autumn season. Launder Curtains and vacuum window blinds. Clean wood blinds with a mild wood cleaning solution.If you like this blog or want to clean your home with the professional cleaners then there are some special offers waiting for you: curtain cleaning melbourne or drapes cleaning melbourne.  

Upholstery Cleaning: Furniture has long drying process so it’s better to tackle this task now. Vacuum all upholstered furniture, if it is not possible then we recommend you to hire professional cleaners for deep cleaning and sanitizing your whole home upholstered furniture. then check out their special offer of upholstery cleaning melbourne or couch cleaning melbourne.  

Each season brings its own challenges on your home, so stay organized and focused. With summer ending and autumn on the way, you can go into the new season secure that your home is in perfect shape!
