Patterns, plains, floral, the choice is huge. Whether the curtain fabric is for curtains in your lounge, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom or bathroom, there are curtain fabrics to suit your taste, decorations and of course your budget. None of these rooms are complete without curtains, they complete the room.
On waking in the morning our first action is to open the curtains and let a new day begin, the outside world enters our lives. What’s the weather got in store for us today? At the end of a long day, we close the curtains shutting out the cold darkness.
A nice flowing floral curtain fabric looks great in the bedroom, or if you tastes are more minimalist a plain curtain fabric would be perfect. In the bedroom it is always advisable to line your curtains with a thermal black out curtain lining, thus cutting out the first signs of daybreak (so you know you can sleep for another hour at least) as well keeping warmth inside the room during those cold nights.
In the kitchen, the curtain fabric can be as lively as you like. Cotton is the ideal choice for this room as they can be washed and dried quickly with ease. That way you’ll have them back up at your windows within the day.
The dining room is a bit more formal. A plain chenille or velvet curtain fabric would be the most suitable for this room. The dining room chairs would also look well with their seats upholstered in the same fabric as your curtains. This will give the dining room a finished look.
The lounge or sitting room is the room for set aside for watching TV or just to rest at the end of a long busy day. The choice of curtains for this room depends on what you have in decoration. If you have gone for a traditional look a floral jacquard will set the room off beautifully. If your upholstery in the room is plain, you can choose a patterned curtain fabric that will compliment the plain upholstery. An abstract design could also work well depending on your upholstery. The desired effect is to compliment the decoration of the lounge and your curtain fabric is meant to do just that.
Always remember that it is important that you choose a curtain fabric you love because you will have to live with it for some time, or at least until you do another makeover that is!
