If you think that the curtains are a secondary element in the decoration of a house, keep reading this article and you will realize that it is not like that. They can improve or ruin the ambience of a room, be it the living room, the bedroom or the kitchen. Therefore, before choosing the fabric for the curtains, it is a good idea to have some things that will help you get it right.
The curtains are the perfect complement to a harmonious decoration. If you have chosen with care the furniture of your living room, the textiles and the upholstery, even the accessories, you cannot put any fabric in the windows. If they are not adequate, the room will not be as beautiful or special. So today we would give you some tips so you do not make mistakes when you choose the fabrics with which to make your curtains.
We are all aware that aesthetics are fundamental in decoration, but we also know that the life we lead does not allow us to be at home all day. Therefore, my first advice is to choose fabrics that are well cleaned, that can be machine washed and that are not too delicate. So they will always be perfect, since to wash the curtains there will be no more than hanging them, putting them in the washing machine with a little mild detergent and selecting a short program, cold, of course. And, just finish the cycle of washing, rinsing, and spin (choose a soft one), and that it. They will hardly have wrinkles and, unless they are of fabrics that wrinkle a lot, it will not be necessary to iron them.
In relation to the best fabrics to use in the curtains depends a lot on the use you are going to give them. Flax is a perfect fabric to use in the spring and summer months since it is very vaporous although you should know that it wrinkles a lot. If you want something more elegant you can opt for fabrics such as silk or velvet although they are very delicate and require a lot of care.It is also convenient to choose fabrics that have a flame retardant treatment, so they do not feed the fire in case of fire. And if they are for the kitchen, better to put fabrics resistant to humidity and steam, and fabrics that do not yellow easily.
