We often gets asked, which fabric is best for which room?
The two major considerations are the aesthetic and the function, so read on for our top tips and you’ll be another step closer to creating your dream home.
Your living room and bedroom…
When it comes to your living room and bedroom, you have a myriad of exciting options at your disposal. Luckily, both curtains or blinds can work a treat here.
Your bedroom is the most intimate of spaces and the perfect place to use your favourite texture! This is the place to really do you.
Opt for curtains for enveloping coziness and for blinds for smaller or more streamlined spaces. All our fabrics are available in blackout if more privacy or blocking of light is needed!
Apply the same practical considerations for both living room and bedroom when it comes to which type of fabric to use:
Super chic and timeless, use linen or light flowing sheers in your living room for a natural, beachy or bohemian effect. Check out our Linton (Linen/Cotton blend) range!
These fibres can sometimes depending on the weight let some light through, but this can be altered with blackout lining for greater privacy and a better night’s sleep by blocking out light. Heavier weight linen can simply be lined with cotton and is very durable and elegant.
If you’re after something rustic but a little different, our Flax is a strong weave with a lived-in appearance - perfect for creating durable curtains with an earthy style.
If you lean towards sophisticated glamour, Silk has a natural lustre and softness which is perfect for you. Silk is susceptible to sun damage, so avoid windows hit by direct sunlight and counter this by lining your curtains and blinds with a cotton blackout lining.
The humidity of the average bathroom means that a fabric needs to be robust.
Our range Revive, made entirely of recycled plastic bottles, is good for both your bathroom and the environment and comes in 13 unique yet sophisticated shades.
Roller blinds are a popular choice in bathroom spaces since they are neat and work well with synthetic fabrics.
We love to use roller blinds as statement pieces in their own right - so mix a bold pattern or colour to lift and modernise your space. Check out our roller blind fabrics.
Consider where your windows are located. If your windows are located near any food preparation spaces or anywhere that might become splattered, then plain roller shades are the best options, being easy to wipe clean and resilient against damage.
If your windows are positioned away from potential danger, then the world is your oyster. We love oh-so-charming Roman blinds in a kitchen. Create them out of a beautiful cotton or linen for a gorgeous, timeless elegance. Use Hemp for more rustic style kitchens or a Cotton Weave for a more modern space.
