With weight to have an elegant drape, washable for the bathroom or stain-resistant for the kitchen, the curtains give us the final touch to our decoration. That is why today in Facades World let's go over the curtain fabrics one by one so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. We started!
7 Curtain Fabrics You Should Think About Using At Home
One of the most frequently asked questions is: Can a curtain ruin an environment? We could already see the answer and it is clearly yes. But there is also the other frequent question, Can you empower it? Definitely yes, that's why we should consider the different types of curtain fabrics that exist. Among the things that we should take into account is its fabric, the space it will occupy, the cleanliness, the price and the amount of light that allows us to enter our house. Today in Architecture Planet We will show you the seven most chosen options among the different types of fabric for curtains that exist. Let's see…
1. Cotton fabric
It is one of the fabrics most chosen for its versatility, its resistance and because it adapts to any environment. They have a very heavy fall due to their weight but still allow air to pass due to their porosity, a fact not less since thanks to it it prevents the formation of fungi. Perhaps one of the characteristics why it is so chosen to decorate homes is that they can be easily cleaned since just by putting them in the washing machine we have gleaming curtains. But not everything is rosy for this type of curtain since it is usually considered a bad insulator and its duration is less than that of other fabrics.
2. Silk cloth
This type of fabric is usually much heavier but covers the entirety well and gives a great romantic look. They are usually very chosen due to their elegance but we have to bear in mind that they must be lined to improve their fall. We must protect them a lot from the sun so we recommend using a black out curtain for this. All very nice but how are silk curtains washed? Very simple, you just have to take it to the nearest dry cleaner to be dry cleaned. We recommend its use in kitchens California style and elegant rooms.
3. Fabrics for linen curtains
This type of fabric has a great drape which allows it to generate a lot of freshness in the environment by subtly letting its light pass through. Linen is a natural fiber three times stronger than cotton and is resistant to the formation of fungi. These types of curtains go very well in contemporary settings or in informal dining rooms. The disadvantage of this type of curtains is that they wrinkle a lot and can shrink when washed.
4. Fabrics for velvet curtains
Velvet fabric can be made from natural or synthetic fibers. If you are looking for the environment to have glamor without a doubt, you should choose velvet! This type of fabric is a great alternative to use in those rooms where the main virtue is rest. This is because velvet fabrics do not let in light, noise or cold. Undoubtedly, this type of fabric gives our decoration a touch of style and modernity.
5. Black out
They are made of fiberglass and vinyl. This type of curtains are ideal for rooms since when closed they completely block the entry of light which allows us to sleep as if it were at night in broad daylight. They are generally used as a complement to other curtains but their use is increasingly chosen by users, especially those who work at night and need to sleep during the day. The white color is the most used but there are many colors, patterns and possible combinations.
6. Polyester Fabric
Durable, robust, easy to care for, resistant to wrinkles, does not shrink or stretch. Does this fabric need anything else to convince you? Clearly yes, well they are also very affordable in price. If there is something that we must take into account, it is to avoid using them in the kitchen! Their fabric is highly flammable and we suggest that they be as far away from it as possible. They are generally widely used in rooms since they are very difficult to wash if they get stained.
7. Woolen curtain fabrics
We can find this material combined with natural or artificial fibers. Its result is the same, an interesting option for our curtains. Its fall is very good and it is one of the oldest materials known to humans.
