Your Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Curtain Fabrics

Curtains are elegant and have a soft feminine look that is a classic choice among homeowners. There are numerous fabric choices for curtains and drapes which can be confusing at times. Each fabric creates a different look and has its own benefits, drawbacks and unique features. Depending on your requirements and the look you want to achieve, they must be chosen accordingly. This post is a guide to choose the right material for custom-made drapery and the different criteria on which your choices depend. Criteria to consider The following are important criteria to consider when choosing the curtain fabric, colour, and style for any room of your house. Density Determine the privacy and natural light you want inside your room- this will help when choosing the curtain fabric of the right density. The thicker the curtain textile, the opaquer it will be blocking more light and increasing your privacy. As Ashley Marino, designer and owner of Ashley Marino Design states, “If you want to keep a bedroom dark for sleeping, you will want a thicker fabric and a style that covers the whole window. If you enjoy waking up to light leaking through your space, you’ll want a fabric that is lighter to allow more light through.” Weight A heavy fabric like velvet or canvas provides more privacy as well as insulation. Moreover, it will not be blown away by strong winds. Though, the curtain rods and accessories should be chosen, keeping in mind the weight so that it does not break down. Opacity The opacity is another essential criterion that is directly related to the privacy you enjoy. It is also related to the weight of the curtain as the opaque materials are usually on the heavier side. They are good for rooms that receive abundant sunlight as it can tone down the harshness or block it completely depending on the degree of opacity. Pro tip 1: Hold a textile sample in front of the window to check how well it filters the light to get the best idea.   Colour The colour of the curtain complements the overall décor of your home and should be chosen with care. Depending on the material, the same colour can have a different effect and look within the same décor layout. Also, consider the functionality of the colour you choose.  For example, dark colours are prone to fading from sunlight, while light colours are more prone to staining and dirt. Pro tip 2: Choose darker colours for high traffic rooms as dirt and dust are not easily visible on them.   Fabric types and their advantages Once you have determined the various criteria that are important to you when it comes to choosing the best window coverings for your home, filter through the variety of textile available based on their benefits and drawbacks. The following are some of the most popular fabrics chosen by homeowners looking for curtains. Cotton This is the most common and most popular fabric for drapery. It is …

What Are the Benefits of Natural Window Coverings?

Being surrounded by greenery and natural elements have a positive impact on your mental and physical health. These days, interior designers are more inclined towards using natural materials and elements in home décor. The window is no exception. With the right covering and dressing, the windows can become a focal point of the house. Moreover, using a natural and eco-friendly material for a window covering is beneficial in many ways. This post discusses the various eco-friendly options that you can consider for your home, and the benefits they have. Different types of natural materials There are different types of window coverings that use natural materials. These are used for making several styles of shades, blinds, and drapes. Some popular natural materials are: Bamboo- It is a sustainable material that grows quickly and is widely available. It is hard enough to be used as flooring, furniture and window coverings. This affordable and attractive material can add a rustic charm to your home. Woven materials- Usually, it is manufactured using bamboo but these days, it is not limited to bamboo or wood alone. You can also find woven window coverings made of jute, hemp, kenaf, and flax. Cotton- This is a popular natural medium used for making shades and curtains. You can find Roman shades made of cotton and there are innumerable choices when it comes to curtains. The only drawback of the material is that it gets dirty very easily. Wood- Wood has a classic beauty and texture, making it a popular choice among buyers looking for shutters and slatted shades and blinds. However, it is not an eco-friendliest option which is why artificial alternatives like faux wood are gaining popularity. Benefits of the materials Now that you know the different natural materials there are, here are the numerous benefits you can expect. Texture Natural materials have a unique texture that cannot be mimicked by artificial alternatives. They look and feel very cozy and impart warmth to your interior décor. This is particularly true for wood and woven materials. Eco-friendly Materials like bamboo, flax and other similar woven materials are eco-friendly options.

Versatile Natural materials are versatile and can be used in any part of the house. They can be used outdoors as well. Depending on the chosen material, they can be used for bathrooms and kitchens. For example, wood is not the best choice for windows in the bathroom. But you can always use woven materials in the form of a roller or Roman shades which can be pulled up away from the humidity and steam. Even if they get wet, it is easier to clean and dry them than wooden slats which can warp. Privacy Be it slatted or woven, natural materials help to maintain your privacy and allow the right amount of natural light …
