Deciding which fabric to buy can be a very difficult task. Not only do you have to choose amongst thousands of different fabric colors and patters but also different textures. You also have many fabric stores out there that have varying degrees of knowledge and expertise when it comes to selecting the right fabric for your home or business. Since purchasing fabric for your window coverings and your furniture upholstery can be very expensive it is essential that you invest your money wisely.
We recommend that you visit several fabric and drapery stores in your area. You will find that a lot of the drapery and fabric stores have many similar fabrics. You may also notice that they charge different prices for the same designer fabrics. You should also keep in mind that price is not the only determining factor when deciding from which fabric store to purchase your fabrics, although it is a very important one. Another factor to consider is the knowledge and the expertise of the decorating consultants and designers. This can be compared to the expertise of different lawyers. The better the lawyer the better the results and the higher the price. That being said, if you go to a fabric & window coverings store and the design consultants offer you free in-store consultation that you feel is very professional and accurate you should consider purchasing from them. If on the other hand you go to a fabric store that offers a somewhat lower price but not accurate and professional in-store consultation you should be aware of this store because you will be paying a lot of money for them to use those fabrics to design your window coverings for all the windows in your house.
So to sum everything up, we recommend that you visit several fabric stores in Toronto or wherever you live and ask for a free in-store consultation and judge which store you will do business with based on your impressions of their knowledge and skills. Quality is more important than price, and remember you get what you pay for.
