If you are in the process of planning your home décor, you definitely know the importance of fabrics. Fabrics play an integral part in design schemes and you need to use them for rugs and carpets, upholstery, throw pillows and window treatment among others. You can use both natural and synthetic fabrics of your décor. Natural fabrics like cotton, silk, wool and linen are used for window treatments and upholstery. Synthetic fabrics like rayon and polyester are used for upholstery, carpeting and other uses.

One of the most commonly used fabrics in home décor is cotton. The pros of cotton include it is versatile, durable, soft; it blends with other fabrics easily and can be washed easily. Another fabric that you will love to use in your house is silk. Silk is a very fine fabric and is a bit expensive. However, since it is not as durable as cotton, use it in areas that are not used frequently.
