Washable Fabrics and What Choices You Have

Washable fabrics have always been extremely popular but the choices haven't been great, Until now. Fabric companies are creating fabulous, luxurious fabrics that at the end of the day can be thrown into the washing machine.

In the Yours Personally Showroom we have so many clients coming in and saying they cant justify recovering their couch or investing in their dream Bespoke Sofa because the kids are still young or the dog loves snuggling on the sofa. That they will just use something cheap and cheerful as they will need to re-do the couch in a few years anyway. You no longer need to do this. We have such a large range of washable fabrics that give you look that you want but you don't have to worry about any accidents. These fabrics are still very reasonable and come in a wide choice of colours.

I have shown a few samples below but this is just a glance at what is available. Click on the images to see more colourways. Free samples of every fabric can be order from Yours Personally. You can also view fabrics in our showrooms and borrow fabric books to take home. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Top tips for Wallpapering


Wallpaper can increase visual interest by adding pattern, texture and accent color to a room. They are a dramatic way to define a room style. For example, a bold abstract print gives a contemporary feel , while a small floral design will suggest a more traditional or country feel within the space.

Tip One

Small prints add a touch of pattern to the overall background colour, forming a subtle backdrop. Mini prints in light, cool colors and fine textures applied to the walls creates a feeling of more space in a small room. If the print is in a warm, dark color, the opposite response occurs. They are often used in kitchens, bathrooms and other small spaces.

Tip Two

Large patterns add the most visual interest to a room. They can also make a room seem smaller and more intimate so we recommend sticking to one or two walls within the room just to add that pop of colour.

Tip Three

Geometric prints which have become increasingly popular give a greater impression of continuous space when applied to the wall. These patterns are bold and exciting !

Tip Four

Stripes can make a ceiling look higher so these are great in low ceiling rooms. Horizontal stripes make a room seem wider. 

Tip Five

Textures, such as heavy grass cloth or expanded vinyl, create dimension, interest, and surface quality. They create shadows and slight colour differences for a more interesting wall surface.

Comfort Comes First


Don’t just Buy it.. Make it Personal with Yours Personally


Comfort is the most important factor when buying a new sofa if you ask us ! Nobody likes an uncomfortable sofa. You can spend quite some time on your sofa over the years so why not get it right the first time. When buying a stock piece we recommend to sit in it and make sure you feel comfortable from head to toe !

Make sure to sit in the piece like you sit at home, so if your legs are normally under you, sit like that. We all know you won’t be sitting straight and pretty when watching movies with the family.

With Yours Personally the sofa is made FOR YOU. All of the measurements are designed around you, so the sofa fits you perfectly ! We’re not called the comfort specialist for nothing.
