If you're looking to create a country feel to your home then using gingham fabric is the perfect choice.

Create a cosy, cottage style kitchen

Create a cosy, cottage style kitchen

A kitchen is the ideal place to use this checked fabric as it will bring a country style look to your room. Try using it for a roman blind or for seat pads. You can mix with striped fabric or use on it own. To bring a French country style look to your kitchen cupboards remove unit doors and make curtains to hang there instead - this is also a great way to revamp old and tired units.

Choose country style accessories such as wicker baskets for your fruit and vegetables, enamel jugs full of flowers and pretty china.

It's also possible to buy gingham in oil cloth which is a great practical option for a tablecloth as it is easy to wipe clean.

Use with bright children's fabrics

Cotton gingham fabric is also suitable for use in bedrooms particularly a child's room, where it makes a great curtain fabric. If you use the checked fabric for curtains your child will not grow out of the pattern as they tend to if you use designs such as dinosaur fabric or pirate fabric. You can accessorise with bright children's fabrics for cushions or bed covers which can be easily replaced as they get older.

Gingham as a co-ordinating fabric

Gingham material is also a great to use as a co-ordinating fabric and can be used very successfully with striped fabric and floral fabrics. In order to use all these patterns together make sure you tie them all together with a common theme such as colour and scale of design. If making cushions you could use gingham as a contrast piping to the main fabric.

This fabric comes in a wide variety of colours from bright red gingham, to muted blues, monochrome tones and all colours in between! It also comes in a variety of sizes of checks so choose the scale that suits your scheme.
