Selecting A Fabric
Finding the right fabric is a matter of trial and error. your first choice may not drape as well as you wanted or may come in only a too dark color. To help the process go more smoothly, follow these steps.
Develop a Color Scheme
Now is the time to pick a color for your window covering. You can establish it based on elements that already exist in the room.- an upholstered sofa, a carpet, or even a favorite painting. Once you determine the main color for the treatment, choose an accent or two. Accent colors can be used for border, trimmings, and even linings. Collect samples of various fabrics and compare the colors until you find something you like.
Choose The Right Type Of Material For Your Window Treatments
For the finished result to be successful, the fabric that you choose needs to suit the window treatment. Canvas is an excellent fabric for a shade, but it is too stiff to drape as a swag. A balloon shade needs a tightly woven material so that the scallops at the hem will hold their shapes and not sag. Don’t judge a fabric by it’s looks alone. check the weight, weave, dyeing process, and how it should be cleaned. When you are using more than one type of fabric, make sure all of the materials are compatible in terms of weight and cleaning requirements. Ask yourself the following questions about any fabric you consider:
How durable is the fabric? –
If you expect to have your window covering a long time, this is an important question. Some fabrics, such as silk, fade or deteriorate easily due to sun damage. To last, such materials need a lining or a special finish for protection.
Will the fabric drape well?–
This depends on the type of window dressing you want. Voile is often used for scarf swags because it is lightweight and hangs beautifully, but this sheer material may not have enough body for a pleated treatment. Thickly woven fabrics, such as tapestry, may be better suited to straight panels rather than tieback ones.
Is it treated with special finishes?
A special finish adds to the durability of the fabric. It can provide resistance to sun damage, mildew,and stains. Some finishes give the fabric more body for better draping.
What type of cleaning will the fabric require?
This all goes back to the issue of maintenance. If you don’t want to fuss with your window dressing, you need an easy-care fabric. If you don’t mind investing time-and money-in the upkeep of your arrangement, you have more options
Check How The Fabric Looks In Your Home
Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, collect fabric sample. Because a small swatch may not show a complete pattern repeat, try to get the largest sample that you can. You may be able to borrow a large swath from the fabric store. If not, buy a yard to take home. Hang the swatches next to the window on which you’re planning to use them. Take note of the fabric’s opacity during the day and in the evening when when the lights are on. How do the colors hold up? Colors that look good in the evening may appear washed out in daylight. Once night falls, some dark colors can look muddy
