The benefits of fabric over leather
Fabric TV Beds are popular for a number of reasons. Firstly, fabric is much easier to dye from a manufacturers point of view which means the consumer can enjoy a much wider choice of fabrics. Secondly, fabric is much cosier and warm in the bedroom and will allow you to team your fabric with your room decor.
The benefits of leather over fabric
A leather TV Bed gives a very sleek appearance and adds elegance to your bedroom. In terms of cleaning leather is much easier to deal with if you encounter any stains simply wipe down with a cloth and warm water.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do you clean a fabric TV bed bedframe?
A: Fabrics such as cotton and linen benefit from frequent vacuuming and brushing. Other materials, like polyester or cotton-polyester blends, can only be vacuumed and materials such as velvet cannot be vacuumed at all. The majority of materials can be cleaned with lukewarm soapy water but always check the label or the care instructions first.
Q: I don’t know what fabric my TV bed is made from, how can I tell?
A: There’s usually a label on the head or footboard of your bed. This label should generally give information around the materials which have been used and how to care for them.
Q: How do I clean a leather TV Bed?
A: This is a really easy answer. A Leather TV Bed, or pretty much any leather piece of furniture can be cleaned easily with a white cloth and lukewarm soapy water. As with all materials it is worth keeping (and checking before you start cleaning) the manufacturer’s instructions first.
