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.
Of course, injecting a little bit of summer into your decor with upholstery fabric does not need to be restricted to the patterns that you choose; often, color alone will be more than enough to impart a summer vibe, and is ideal for those who are generally not so keen on patterns or cannot find one that suits their preferences. Choosing vibrant hues and pastel colors is often a great way to update upholstery fabric for the warmest season of the year. This brings a touch of the light and bright into the home, which can bring some life to a room during the brighter seasons of the year. In contrast to warm and cosy shades in the autumn and winter, light and colorful shades are perfect for spring and summer.
Next is silk. When looking at silk for curtain and upholstery fabrics then you are looking at sheer luxury. Silk oozes luxury and comfort and is an absorbent fabric which is used for garments, curtains and more. It is important to note that while silk may give you a luxurious finish, it is not ideal if you want darker and thicker curtains to block out the sun. Further, you will note that this material usually needs to be dry cleaned.
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.
