You probably never knew there was a variety of velvets to choose from. Not all velvets are the same. There is linen velvet, which is one of the more popular varieties and is lighter, cooler and provides texture. There is silk velvet which is very indulgent, the printed velvet gives you some depth and design, a perfect finish to your room while crushed can give you a different design to add texture and style to your room finish.
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.
Durability. This might not be an obvious consideration, but you should always think about who will be using the room. A delicate, soft fabric is fine for a formal living room, but you wouldn't want to decorate a children's playroom with it. Typically, woven patterns are more durable than printed ones, and higher thread counts also provide a longer lifespan. Though these upholstery fabrics may be more expensive, their durability makes up for the cost.
On the other hand, in a room frequented by children or pets, white and other delicate colours are not a great idea. Some things you can consider when choosing upholstery fabric is mood and how colour temperature impacts the mood of that room. Warm and cool colours create different atmospheres. Also, try to avoid trendy colours, especially if you're not sure how you'll feel about that colour when it's not so trendy anymore.
