Decorating with Polyester

Polyester has a bad reputation. It is thought that polyester is cheap in look and quality because it is less natural looking than a cotton or linen. But, polyester is actually a great option for home decor.

 Polyester drapes beautifully and, on curtains, we can usually get away with not lining them. Not only is polyester an affordable option for curtains, but being able to omit the lining will save you an additional $30 per set.

Polyester is a synthetic fiber and is known for being light weight, strong and weather resistant.

Polyester is also wrinkle free!

While being wrinkle free, stain resistant and draping well because of it's weight, polyester is a great choice for your home decor.

The shade below is made from two polyester fabrics.

Polyester has come a long way in the past few decades. It is now widely used in home decor and is a great choice for getting the look you want and the print you want at an affordable price.
