Choosing Faux Silk Curtains

Everyone wants to add a touch of luxury to their home but we cannot always afford to do this.  Extras such as silk curtains can be very costly and they are expensive to care for when things such as dry cleaning bills are taken into consideration.  One way around this is to opt for faux silk curtains.

Faux is the French word for false and when used with a fabric it simply means that it has the look and feel of the fabric that it is supposed to resemble but it is usually a synthetic fibre.  Faux silk curtains have the look and feel of silk and ensure a luxurious touch without the luxury price tag.

The styles that are available come in a variety of colours and come complete with linings and tiebacks to ensure that the room has a ‘finished’ look.  These are made from 100% polyester, which is a synthetic fibre and which is designed to be long lasting and easy to care for while the linings are a blend of polyester and cotton.  The faux silk curtains can be machine washed at a temperature of 30°c.

The curtains can be used in any room in the house and look great in bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms.  As they are one simple colour it is easy to find a pair of curtains that will enhance any chosen colour scheme and they also look great in neutral rooms, where they can be used to add a touch of colour.
