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.
Now as with benefits, you need to know the disadvantages before ordering this material and using it for your next furniture item. Unfortunately even luxurious velvet comes with some cons and this includes how difficult it is to clean. Cleaning velvet is not an easy task and you will need to follow the manufacturers instructions step by step to ensure the material stays clean and looking great.
It's a good idea to check with the upholstery fabric supplier to identify if the material they supply is fade resistant. Over time sun is guaranteed to shine into the space, catching the fabric and we all know how damaging the sun rays can be. There is nothing worse than one side of the furniture item losing its colour, while the other side stays brilliant and bright. Fade resistance can be a major benefit and definitely something that should be taken into consideration.
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.
