Tips for the Best Fabric Selection

Fabric SelectionInterior design is a compilation of a variety of different pieces that, together, can make your space into something incredible. There are so many small aspects of each room that need to be considered throughout the design process. One element that is often overlooked by overeager DIYers is appropriate fabric selection.

The following is a list of some of the different areas in a room that require fabrics:

  • Window treatments
  • Throw pillows
  • Rugs
  • Tablecloths or table runners
  • Throw blankets
  • Couches or chairs
  • Beds

Seeing how many parts of your room require fabric can help you better understand the importance of the fabric selection process. Since so much of the décor in a room will be determined based on fabrics, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Follow professional guidelines for patterns. Don’t limit yourself to one pattern; it will look contrived and unflattering compared to mixing patterns.
  • Carefully choose colors and undertones. You don’t want to feel like things are off because you’ve strayed from the color palette for a room.
  • Use a variety of different textures, such as cozy wool blankets, linen couches, faux fur or sequin pillows, a leather armchair, etc.
  • Make sure that you see the fabrics you’ve selected in the lighting of your own home. The color could vary dramatically from the way it looks in a store or online.
  • Choose fabric that will be functional for you and your family. If you have kids or pets, there are certain fabrics that you should avoid and certain fabrics you should heavily consider.

Following these tips will help you throughout the fabric selection process to find the best options for your space.
