Fabrics For Home Decorating Use

Author: Administrator
Fabric or cloth is a very effective material to use when decorating your room, office or home, if you want to create a warm, appealing or themed atmosphere. It is simpler to use materials because they come in so many different patterns and colours and it is inconceivable that you will not be abe to find a fabric to suit your decorating needs.

Cloth can have many uses in home decoration, some of them are as wall coverings, as in flock, slip covers, carpets, table runners, curtains and wall hangings. A room without cloth can look cold and uninviting.

It is best to have a certain style in mind, before you go buying your materials. For example, do you already have furnishings? Do you already have a few sticks of furniture? If you do, are they all of a comparable style? If they are, then the fabrics you choose ought to fit in with them. Otherwise, you can use fabrics to harmonize unmatched furniture.

For example, if you have a harmonized set of furniture, but you want to add a recliner chair, you could get a slip cover for that recliner chair which will make it better match in with your existing decor, rather than have it stand out like a sore thumb.

If you are starting from nothing it is even simpler. You can select a theme or a style and buy cloths that will fit in with that style. For example, you could choose a Southern style or an Italian, say, Tuscan style. If you want a Tuscan style, you might choose to select fabrics with woven textures such as burlap, fabrics made from the abaca fibre and fabrics made from banana tree fibres, Savannah cloth and tobacco leaf fibres.

Tuscan decorating fabrics tend to be heavier but they are very versatile. If you use the Tuscan theme as your guide, these decorating materials could be used for blinds, runners, curtains, slip-covers and rugs. However, you may decide on a cottage style decor, in which case you will select floral patterns in light, bright colours.

You have so much variety when you use fabrics to customize your room or home. Having said that, I would like to emphasize that you ought to take your time before coming down on a theme, because if you implement a theme or colour scheme correctly, it can be quite expensive , which means that you will have to live with it for quite a while.

If you had the money, it would be cool to have two or more themes, all somewhat different that you could change over from time to time, say, when one theme is in the wash. Curtains and slip covers could go in the wash together and be replaced by a completely different theme for six months or so.
