What are Cotton Fabrics Used for?

When decorating for your home, fabrics made of cotton and cotton blends can be easy to find. In fact, about 30 percent of cotton is used in home furnishings and decorations. As they are durable and easy to care for, fabrics made with cotton come in a wide range of colors, designs, and textures.

Cotton fabrics are very popular when used to make your own sheets, pillowcases, and bedspreads. The smooth, light texture can help you to stay comfortable on warmer nights, while they can help you stay more comfortable when used between your body and a blanket on colder nights.

Since you can find a variety of fabrics made of cotton or a blend, this fabric is great to use for upholstery covers or cushion covers that can be removed for easy cleaning.

You may also frame cotton prints or use this fabric in window treatments. Cotton can be an inexpensive choice, making these fabrics ideal when you frequently change your decor to suit you changing tastes.

Luxurious fabrics, including those made with cotton, all have different care instructions. While most fabrics made of cotton alone are washable, some of the blends may not be.
