Curtains, roman blinds, blinds or shutters?

IMG-20170623-WA0001

Choosing the correct window covering is essential and with the wide array of options available, it can be a rather challenging task. Things that should be considered when choosing your window coverings include the style of the room, the interior and architectural design of the space, light requirements, your budget and of course, your lifestyle.

If your room gets a lot of natural sunlight, choose window treatments that can control the light entering the room. Lined curtains are ideal for areas like this. Alternatively shutters are also good, as they can block out the light entirely.

If there is a lack of natural light entering a room and it is dark, then the window coverings should be unlined and made from sheer, light weight fabrics in light colours.

If your windows are oddly shaped, then you might have to get the window coverings custom-made to fit your particular window.

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS TO CONSIDER BEFORE DESIGNING YOUR HOME

Sun_Gibeon-PhotographySun — Sunlight is one of the most important factors to consider when designing a home. Improperly sighting a home without regard to sun can lead to glare, overheated spaces, sun damage or dark and gloomy interiors. Mapping out the sun’s path on your site can inform you about what times of the day spaces may need shading, how the surrounding environment will affect the site, as well as what places will be best for outdoor living.

Views — Although every home may not be blessed with sweeping views of a beautiful landscape, each site still has its unique surroundings to take into account.  Whether it is framing small focused views in an urban setting, or designing floor-to-ceiling windows towards a mountain vista, it is important to highlight the best aspect of the site and make the home feel grounded to its unique location. Just as important as good views are bad views. Simple design changes can screen neighboring homes, roadways or any other eyesores.

Wind — Although wind is a bit more unpredictable than the sun, it is a factor that can really make or break a home. In warmer climates, it is important to site a home so cross-breezes will flow during the hot months, whereas in cold climates you may want to buffer the wind with landscape to reduce heating bills. No matter where you live, some forethought about wind will enhance your outdoor living spaces, reduce energy costs and even help with maintenance!

Wind2_David-Patterson-PhotographySound — Anyone who has ever been woken up by the garbage truck in the morning knows that noise can cause a damper on daily living. Make sure to visit your site at different times of the day to determine the main sources of noise pollution.  Proper siting of quiet spaces, such as bedroom vs public spaces, or even kitchens can help prevent some of the tolls on daily life. Additionally, landscaping, high-quality windows and sound insulating can make a huge difference.

Stylish, practical and contemporary, a corner sofa can be the best starting point while decorating your living room

The furniture you choose for your living room should be comfortable and reflect your style.

The sofa is the most important piece in a living room, no matter how big or small the space is. It’s the spot where you relax with a cup of coffee, watch a good movie, get some work done, hang out with guests or take a nice weekend nap.

furniturechoice-co-uk

A Corner Sofa is a functional alternative to a sofa because it offers extra seating and lounge space. Just because you have a small living room doesn’t mean you can’t have a corner unit. In fact, a perfectly sized modular sectional may be the best option. What else would you do with that corner, anyway? Might as well make it extra seating.

Stylish, practical and contemporary, a corner sofa can be the best starting point while decorating your living room. You can add two armchairs and an ottoman or another classic couch to complete your furnishing. If you don’t have enough room for all, you can only have a corner and an ottoman. You see, it is possible

Choosing fabrics is a big part of any interior decor & design project.

IMG_8486

Fabrics work double-duty in any design project. You don’t only consider the look of the material, but also the feel and durability. After all, you will be touching most items you cover in fabric, and you don’t want a texture that leaves guests mumbling that they’re more comfortable standing than sitting on your beautiful but impractical sofa.

IMG_8432

Obviously, delicate fabrics are not the best choice for high-use furniture. Fortunately, when you’re decorating in the style of a particular period, those styles typically include fabrics that stand up to time in both beauty and quality.

Choosing fabrics is a big part of any interior decorating project. You’ll need textilesIMG_4193_smlYou’ll need textiles for your rugs, your furniture upholstery, and your curtains. And, when you want high-end style, it helps to know which fabrics complement the time period you are trying to evoke.

Gauging Look and Feel

One unfortunate trend in modern textiles is mass production that lends itself to cheaper quality. The result is fabric that looks quite similar to traditional textiles but that will not stand up to use as well as their ancestors. This is why it’s so important to be informed about fabric quality and to work with a well-respected professional.

Thread count—  This number indicates how tightly the fabric is woven. In general, higher thread counts mean higher quality, longer-lasting materials. Of course, you’ll need to take into consideration the type of fabric, since thread count varies between, for instance, silk and cotton. And, some fabrics, like leather, do not have a thread count at all.

Materials—  You’ll find many look-alikes in the world of synthetic fabrics, but natural textiles are where true luxury lies. Natural fibres generally have both a better look and feel. Additionally, when decorating in period style, natural fibres provide a more authentic finish.

Feel—  Touch every fabric you are considering buying. If you can’t touch it first, then don’t get it. Remember, you will likely be touching this material often, whether it is for curtains or furniture, or sinking your bare feet into a lush rug. Even if the material will be used for a less frequented room in your house, you don’t want to enter a luxuriously designed room, sit down, and find the material unpleasant.

At Scribbels Interiors we source the best fabrics in the world for all your décor desires. We’ll even custom order the textiles you need to complete your look. Come by our showroom to find the top colours, textures, and patterns for rugs, upholstery, and curtain fabrics in St Francis Bay.
