Choosing the right Curtain Fabric

Poylester v Linen, some things to remember

When it comes to choosing the right fabric for your home curtains, the options can be overwhelming.

Two popular choices are polyester and linen.

While both fabrics have their strengths, there are some clear advantages of polyester over linen. Firstly, polyester is a highly durable fabric that can withstand heavy use and washing without losing its shape or colour.

Linen, on the other hand, is known for its delicate and easily wrinkled nature. This makes polyester a better choice for items that need to last a long time, such as curtains or upholstery. Secondly, polyester is typically more affordable than linen.

While linen may be considered a luxury fabric, polyester is widely available and comes in a range of prices to fit any budget. Additionally, polyester fabrics often require less maintenance, as they are less prone to staining or shrinking compared to linen.

Finally, polyester is a more versatile fabric in terms of design options.

Linen, while beautiful in its natural state, may be limited in the variety of designs that can be applied to it.

In conclusion, while linen has its advantages, such as its natural and breathable qualities, polyester clearly has the upper hand in terms of durability, affordability, and design options. When it comes to choosing the right fabric, polyester may just be the better choice.
