It’s not all just about colour, pattern and texture when it comes to choosing fabrics for the home. Before you make your selection, ask yourself some simple questions.

  •  What exactly will it be used for?
  • Will it be used in a high traffic area?
  • Will it be used regularly or just when guests come over?
  • What type of light does the room have?
  • Do you have any pets or children?
  • How much will you need and what is your budget?

Once you have answered these questions, our easy to use key in the guide will help you to decide which fabrics are for you!
