Picking the Right Fabric for Your Bedroom Design

There are thousands of fabrics to choose from when you want to create a new piece for your bedroom. These fabrics can create a brand new atmosphere for your room, bringing new influences to the overall design. Fabric choices express personality in your home through colorful, pattern-filled designs that make an area unique. Fabric is essential in custom furniture pieces such as couches, ottomans, and chairs. But before you decide on a fabric you found at the store, check out Ellecor Interior Design’s three steps to choosing the right fabric for your space.

Color and Pattern

Obviously, you want the color and pattern of the fabric to be right for your bedroom design. The furniture in your bedroom is a central part of your design, so choosing the right color and pattern is important. For example, if you have a modern, natural bedroom design, look for a solid color in a neutral earth-tone. With thousands of patterns and color pairings, the design opportunities are endless!

If you want to include a fun pattern in your fabric, look around the room, and find key colors that grab your attention. Write these colors down and search for a pattern that contains all of them to bring the overall bedroom design together. 


Texture shouldn’t be overlooked when deciding on a fabric to reupholster your custom furniture. Before we discuss why you need to consider texture, here are a few different fabric textures to choose from: 

  • Cotton
  • Leather
  • Jute
  • Linen
  • Wool
  • Velvet
  • Polyester
  • Microfiber
  • Faux Leather

These textures can create a completely different feel for the bedroom design, defining the overall comfort and aesthetic of the room. Fabrics like cotton and linen are the most common textures for furniture and give the room a plush and homey feeling. However, leather is high-quality, easy to maintain, and durable, making it very attractive. If you need help deciding on which texture to choose, contact an interior designer for a professional opinion.

Match the Aesthetic

The aesthetic is the most important aspect to consider when adding anything new to a room. First, assess your design elements and look at the type of interior design style you currently have. Each design style brings a unique aesthetic to the space, so finding a fabric that brings the room together is essential.
