With regard to the actual textile, not only will it determine the appearance of your window treatment, it will have an effect on how your curtains or drapes actually function. "If they’re too heavy, they may not fold crisply when drawn; too light and they may not fall well," designer Suysel DePedro Cunningham of Tilton Fenwick. This means it's really important to make fabric choice a hands‐on project. Bring large samples into your space and hold them up where the curtains will go. Also, try manipulating the fabric in the style that it will be on your window.
While silk is the most luxurious, the new faux silk fabrics are certainly more durable. And, real silk must be line to prevent rotting and deterioration from the sun. Heavier choices like velvet, tweeds and brocades can also block out more light and insulate the window from drafts and outdoor temperatures.
