Start with wool. Wool has been used around the world for years. It is used for clothing and upholstery fabrics, though it is very important you understand this product and what it means to use it as part of your room design. Wool doesn't mean you are choosing a woolly jumper, it is a very resistant and absorbent material, but at the same time it can cause headaches when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. Wool often shrinks and can change shape easily, which means cleaning needs to be done with care following the strict instructions from the manufacturer.
Cotton is a very popular material, though when it comes to curtain and upholstery design, there are some factors to take into consideration regarding this particular fabric. Cotton is breathable and is very high quality. It is able to withstand heat, which makes it ideal for window coverings. Another reason to consider cotton is that it is easy to maintain and clean.
Velvet dates back to the eighth century and is considered very luxurious and posh. For those looking to make a dramatic statement in their room design and come up with a design that screams luxury and comfort, then this fabric may be the best upholstery fabric for you to choose from.
When it comes to curtain and upholstery fabrics you often find that polyester is included. Polyester is a very strong and resistant material which is often used as a blend, so you will find it blended with the wood or blended with the cotton. A cotton and polyester blend provides you with all the benefits you find with cotton, but the polyester helps to reduce the wrinkling and gives the material even more strength. Again, polyester is very easy to maintain which makes it a very popular choice when it comes to room design and finishing touches.
