When choosing window treatments for your home, one of the most important aspects to consider is the fabric. The type of fabric affects how curtains hang and drape, as well as the texture, coverage, durability, and ease of laundering. Check out the following curtain fabrics so you can decide which window treatments best match your décor and needs.

  • Cotton

Cotton is a versatile fabric used to achieve a range of styles. It offers a crisp, clean feel that suits traditional or modern styles. As it can be a very light fabric, cotton curtains do need to be properly lined so they hang and fall as desired. If you’re looking to block sunlight in a bright room, choose cotton with a tight weave or have them well lined.

  • Silk

If silk doesn’t say ‘luxury’ nothing does. Be warned though, silk is best chosen for its aesthetic appeal than functionality. Silk is a heavy-ish fabric so it drapes well; it looks fabulously romantic in bedrooms or formal dining rooms. But it’s not the most practical. Silk is dry clean only, and very susceptible to sun damage. If the room has a lot of natural light you may want to protect them by using a roller blind underneath or a lighter coloured panel for lining. You could opt for a silk-look polyester fabric for more durability.

  • Polyester

This is a very common choice. Polyester is durable, affordable, easy to care for, and doesn’t really wrinkle, stretch or shrink. Choose polyester for bedroom and living areas, but avoid it in the kitchen as it’s flammable, doesn’t allow good airflow and absorbs odours.

  • Linen

Linen is a natural fibre. Its billowy look creates an airy, casual, relaxed environment. If you like the look of curtains that pool on the floor, linen is a great choice to achieve it. Linen won’t block the sun, and like silk they’re dry clean only.

  • Velvet

Made of either natural or synthetic fibres, if you want glamour and richness in a room, pick velvet. It’s thick and heavy making it great for blocking out cold air, light and sound. And it drapes well, giving rooms a regal look.

  • Acrylic

With a similar texture to wool, arylic is a lightweight fabric that drapes beautifully and provides great insulation. Acrylic curtains attract and disperse moisture effortlessly, they’re hypoallergenic and resistant to mold and mildew.

  • Rayon

Rayon can be woven with natural fibres to achieve a variety of textures. It’s soft, strong and breathable.

  • Lace

Lace curtains are very traditional and romantic, best used to provide privacy and diffuse natural light. Most often they come in neutral shades, easily coordinated with other colours in the room. Check to see if they’re dry clean only, or a little more sturdy and can handle a machine wash.

  • Voile

Voile is a crisp, open weave fabric that is best utilised for sheers. It gathers and drapes wonderfully, creating a light, airy ambience while maintaining a high level of privacy.
