Another very popular use of home decor fabric is for window treatments, most often for curtain and drapery interior design applications. When decorating a room or space, the use of designer drapery fabric provides an opportunity to transform what would otherwise be a drab but functional design component into an aesthetically pleasing feature by introducing texture, color and design to further enhance your interior design project.

Curtain and drapery fabric tends to be lighter weight than normal upholstery fabric. In most cases you’ll want to use a backing material to add fullness and to protect the fabric from harmful UV light. An off white or pure white backing fabric also provides a uniform exterior appearance of all your windows allowing you to use different home decor curtain fabric designs and colors for different rooms in your home while maintaining attractive curb appeal.

Other Decorative Fabric Uses

What does the “weight” of home decor fabric refer to?

When someone is referring to the “weight” of home decor fabric, they’re often referring to the thickness or density of the interwoven fibers. Specifically, the term “weight” refers to the number of ounces per square yard (or grams per square meter if you’re in the UK/EU). Typically a fabric selected for drapes or curtains would be a lighter weight than fabric used for furniture upholstery.

What does the term “pattern repeat” of a home decor fabric refer to?

When someone is referring to a “pattern repeat” of a home decor fabric, they’re referring to the size in inches horizontally and vertically of a given design printed on or woven into the fabric. For example, assume a flower basket design is 27" wide and 18" tall. Since home decor fabric is typically 54" wide, in this example the basket design would be repeated every 27" horizontally for a total of two times across the width of the 54" wide fabric. The basket design would be repeated every 18" vertically for a total of two times for every 36" length of the fabric. So in this example, a one yard length of 54" wide fabric would have 4 flower basket designs on it.

A fabricator will use the pattern repeat to calculate the various cuts of the fabric to center a design on each upholstered cushion or to align the designs on drapery panels.
