November 3, 2020 Silk is a luxurious and elegant fabric that has become popular in home interiors. Although you will be splashing out slightly more cash in order to maintain the silk within your home, it has many advantages. The smooth fabric has properties that make it perfect for home decor, keeping cool in the summer months and warm throughout the winter months. Below, we have put together a few benefits as to why choosing silk is a great idea for creating a luxurious and classy home interior. Upholstery Although silk does not wear too well on furniture that is used daily, why not wrap your furniture that is used once in a while to create an elegant and beautiful statement piece within your home. Do note that silk upholstery needs to have regular care in order to maintain the fabric. Investing in durable upholstery padding will ensure the longevity of the silk and will give it more shape and structure as well as texture to the silk covering. Curtains If you want a royal and grand aesthetic adding to your home, silk curtains are the way to go. The soft texture of the curtains means they will complement any room decor, be it in the bedroom, living room, or even dining room. They are perfect for children’s rooms especially as they do not electrify or attract any dust. They will also be sure to hold their bright and fresh colour due to the soft fibres of the fabric. Bedding As well as looking and feeling beautiful, silk bedding has multiple benefits. Keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, silk is gentle on the skin and can help with deterring ageing and sleep lines. Not only will it provide you with a smooth and comfortable sleep, paired with silk pillows and cushions, silk bedding mixes up any room décor, creating a classy and sophisticated atmosphere. Wallpaper Although it has a higher price range and may not fit everyone’s budget, silk wallpaper is great for adding a shimmery texture and pattern to any room. It’s ideal for both traditional and contemporary looks within the home. Silk wall hangings are also a great alternative to regular wallpaper, in which it can be used as a tapestry, where artists can paint on the silk surface to create original and bespoke designs fit for any home interior. Rugs Silk is one of the most durable fabrics when it comes to rugs, due to the mixture of fabrics used to create them. Infused with wool and other high-quality fibres, silk rugs are soft to the touch but durable and have promised longevity. Depending on how the rug is woven, it can also have a different look or colour from each angle, providing a versatile and interchanging design for your home. Throw covers Throw covers are the perfect way to take your bedroom décor to the next level. Adding layering and depth to your room by adding silk throws will create a cosier, more homely look and feel. Adding a silk throw will draw the eye to the key feature of the room, achieving a classier and more sophisticated overall look to your bedroom.
