How to pick your fabrics with Maurice Kain

Whether this is your first time or you have decorated before, it can be a daunting challenge. With so many options, so many things to consider, where do you start?

Maurice Kain is a leading soft furnishing fabric house supplying the Australasian market for well over 65 years. Sourcing drapery fabrics from every corner of the world has ensured the ability to bring on trend design, colour, and quality through to Dollar Curtain’s customers. To fulfil so many different furnishing requirements in consumers’ homes Maurice Kain’s range must be a one stop shop; so we cater to that requirement with jacquards, sheers, plains and prints.

fabric selection tips

PICK YOUR QUALITY

Our association with Dollar curtains started over 20 years ago. Like Dollar Curtains & Blinds, quality for Maurice Kain is paramount. Three full time QA staff are part of our commitment to quality. All our ranges must meet very stringent criteria. Our in house testing laboratory ensuresno product is released to the market without passing all applicable tests. We look after the quality side of the equation for you.

PICK YOUR COLOUR

When developing new drapery collections, we take into consideration the direction paint and flooring colours are taking and ensure our colourations are working together. If you are starting with a bare room or existing colours, walls and floors are a perfect place to start. Colour takes on what we call “hue” which can be green / red / blue for example, so a great decorating tip is to collect your paint chips, flooring samples and drapery swatches so they overlap each other. This will ensure your “hues” are compatible. Dollar Curtains & Blinds expertly trained consultants are also on hand to help you put that together.

PICK YOUR DESIGN

Florals, stripes, leaves, scrolls, geometrics, or textures, this is where you can make your own personal statement and a true reflection of yourself. Consider the space you are decorating - living, bedroom , dining – it can be as bold or subdued as you like. It is also where you can add tremendous value to your home and create that “wow factor.”

PICK YOUR ENERGY-EFFICIENT SOLUTION

With ever increasing energy bills – correctly installed drapes can significantly reduce your heating costs. This simple diagram explains where the heat is lost and how it can be reduced. Incorporating a quality lining with your drapes also helps with energy efficiency, significantly reducing not only the heat loss during the winter, but repelling the heat during the summer. From the infrared imaging of a typical home it is easy to see where the heat is lost.
