Yachts, sailboats, catamarans… With the arrival of summer it is time to tune up the boats and the nautical upholstery is a fundamental piece that has to be specially taken care of. Fabrics for this type of upholstery should be composed of extra resistant fibers, which can withstand humidity and weather conditions on the high seas and in coastal areas.
Seats, solariums, mats, cushions, protectors, carpets, tarpaulins, curtains, walls … Each element must be upholstered with the most suitable fabric to guarantee the best finishes. Today we help you choose the best nautical upholstery for the exterior and interior of your boats.
Nautical upholstery features
The fabrics used for this type of upholstery require a different treatment than usual, since they are more exposed to the environmental aggression of the sea, rain, sun, salt and saltpeter. This is why they must meet certain requirements and go through rigorous quality exams.
To ensure that the marine upholsteries look a clean and well-maintained design, it is essential that the fabrics have the following characteristics:
Top quality material
Once you have decided to renew the upholstery of your boat, you should bet on good quality materials and fabrics, which are specially designed for nautical use. Keep in mind that an upholstery not suitable for this type of environment will last a very short time, and in the end this will be a major expense.
Do not hesitate, invest in good materials that withstand the weather and corrosion of the maritime environment. Among the fabrics that best meet these characteristics are skins, leathers, chenillas, microfibers and canvases.
Strength and durability
To combat the signs of daily wear and extend the upholstery life to the maximum it is essential to opt for hard and resistant fabrics. In our catalog of online stores you can find a wide variety of fabrics highly resistant to sunlight, moisture and also have antibacterial and antifungal properties.
In addition to the strength and durability of the fabrics, we cannot forget comfort. The upholstery should provide a modern and relaxed look that manages to convey that comfort and warm touch characteristic of the summer.
The shape and design of nautical furniture is different from what we have in our home. This is something that we must take into account. The most advisable thing is to opt for fabrics that adapt perfectly to the measurements and shape of each piece of furniture, until leaving a clean structure without imperfections.
