The key to a comfortable and relaxing environment at home is the kind of upholstery chosen for the bed covers, curtains and drapes. There are a variety of materials used to give the desired effect to a particular room in the house. Home furnishing fabrics are available in various colors, textures and materials. There are embroidered fabrics with lace, hand printed and special creations made from chiffon.
The choice of the fabric displays the personality of the owner. It is possible to get the desired look by using the right fabric combination, for the right ambience. There are different furnishing fabrics that are available to suit the different rooms in the house. If only the look is of prime importance, furnishings of a delicate fabric can be used.
A utility room could be enhanced with durable material. It would be appropriate to use synthetic material in the kitchen, as it is easier to wash and clean. The living room would look good with a little heavier and more expensive furnishing fabric, than those used in the other rooms.
Leather gives a natural look to the room and is comfortable. Usually, leather furnishings are used for sofas with a wooden frame. Wrought iron sofas go well with cotton or silk.
A printed variety looks more appealing in a sunny and bright room. Plain and pastels go well with the bedrooms, where serenity is required. The bedrooms for children can be furnished with a variety of cartoon prints available in the market.
The cost of fabric depends upon the availability of the material and the cost of manufacture. There are hand woven varieties that are priced on the basis of their high quality of design and workmanship. A bit of research helps in narrowing down to the suppliers and rates most suitable.
