Fabric choices are a key part of choosing your homes drapes and curtains. While it was in fashion to pick just one traditional fabric, it’s now more in vogue to change up fabrics based on the room and even based on the season. Let’s discover a few new and fun options for fabric that can make beautiful drapes and curtains.
Depending on the thread count, silk can be heavy and luxurious or light and airy. Color can also greatly influence how silk looks in a room. A dark silk curtain with a damask print can be a dramatic statement curtain in a bedroom, or a light white silk curtain can open up a kitchen or dining room.
There’s nothing more breath-taking than a stunning velvet drape. Velvet drapery can add mystery to a study or office that will also block out sunlight very effectively. Velvet will keep rooms warm and can even be used in a bedroom to frame a chair or bench underneath a window.
Light, breezy and cooling linen makes any dining room, bedroom, or living room feel like a summer beach house. Don’t be afraid to use a colorful linen for a bright pop of color to any room. Linen can also be used against bay windows for a nautical feel to a room or small kitchen window to keep a room open and bright by allowing in lots of natural light.
Light, colorful and fun tulle can be used as a window covering in a child’s bedroom, playroom or even against a main window. Tulle will block some light but will also keep things cool in a room. The beauty of tulle is its diversity: it comes in a wide variety of colors that can add whimsy to any room.
