Do I Need Fabric Protector For My Headboard?

Do I need Fabric protector

Your bed and headboard are well used pieces of furniture and should last a long time.

Keeping your headboard and bed (or ottoman or valance!) looking good will be on your mind, and will undoubtedly be a consideration when  choosing a fabric.

Once you’ve chosen your items, we offer Fabric Protection as an optional add-on, but what does it do and how can it help?

What is Fabric Protector?

Fabric protection for your headboard and bed is our recommended in-house treatment.  If you opt for fabric protector an odourless and colourless liquid is sprayed onto your finished items at our workshop.

How does Fabric Protector work?

Fabric protection acts as an invisible barrier to resist stains and spills from penetrating the fibres of your headboard’s fabric.

It will give you time to grab a cloth and remove oil or water based stains from the fabric surface.

Does Fabric Protector affect the fabric?

Fabric protection does not change the look, feel, colour or smell of your new bed and headboard.

Does Fabric Protection work with all headboard fabrics?

Fabric Protector can be applied to almost all materials.

How much does Fabric Protecting my headboard or bed cost?

How much fabric protector will cost is determined by the items you are ordering.
