Suede curtains are not for all. For those living in cold areas should consider opting for these. The thick fabric keeps the heat inside and lets the home remain warm. Also, for those who love their privacy, this fabric allows you to keep your indoors private. In case you live in tropical areas you could use the synthetic forms of this fabric – microsuede and ultrasuede. This is faux suede, lighter in weight and doesn’t make the rooms very warm.
Don’t want to give an opulent look to your home? Suede can still be a part of your home. Use cushions made of suede. Here you could play with textured or printed suede fabric to make the home look bright and subtle at the same time.
Tip: With suede you need to be careful about stains. Suede has a property of absorbing water and stain in the process. This wetness can also damage the texture of the fabric. Use a clean sponge to absorb in case of any spillage. Also, clean suede upholstery using a suede brush or a terrycloth towel. Do this once in a week.
