Are you feeling tired of your curtains that have been hanging for years? When it comes to window treatments, it’s a matter of color and fabric, length and lining, and custom-made versus off-the-shelf. At Inside Out Interiors we consult with you to measure up for the perfect fit for curtains or blinds. At our studio we have a wide variety of fabrics for every style and need. Fabric is an essential part of choosing curtains, since the material will dictate how well your curtains function and hold up over time, but here are also a couple of tips to help you choose.
Look at colour – Sunlight will fade fabrics over time. If the room gets a lot of light, it’s smart to avoid bright colors, since they tend to fade faster.
Look at durability – pure silk is not a great option for our intense heat, faux silk, linens, cottons and polyesters are better choices.
Thread count- Decorator fabrics have a higher thread count than fabric that’s used for clothes. So decorator fabrics will last longer.
It is important to know how to care for your curtains correctly so that they will last longer.
