Top 10 Fabrics for the Cleanable Family

Top 10 Fabrics for the
Cleanable Family

When selecting a fabric for your home there are so many things to think about. Is it a high traffic room? Do you plan on eating in the space? Is this your central gathering space? Do you have children or pets? The list goes on and on. For any family these questions are a great jumping off point. Always better safe than sorry when it comes to fabric clean-ability.
Start by looking for a fabric with a cleanable synthetic fiber that is spot cleanable, non absorbent, tight woven; and has a high rub count.  Our go to and most popular fabric fiber selection is polyester. Polyester is an inherently cleanable fabric with all of these qualities. It stands up to families’ everyday living with ease.
If you need a step up in clean-ability you can always look for indoor/outdoor fabrics. These fabrics are at a higher price point, but go the extra mile. Some of these fabrics are so cleanable liquids simply bead off.
Look for fabrics with variation, highs and lows, or a slight pattern. This adds visual interest which also helps with hiding surface dirt and dander.
Finally, there is color selection. Choosing the right color for your home and family is very important. You want to find a fabric that compliments your wall color, accent furniture, and d├ęcor. Keep in mind that the lighter the fabric the easier it is to see surface dirt and dander.
