why should I get fabric samples?
Whether you are buying fabric from a fabric shop or online, if you are considering new curtains then the best place to start is to get some fabric samples so that you can see what the fabric looks like with your existing colour scheme.
This is especially important if you are buying online so that you can also feel the fabric texture, something you can’t gauge when looking at a screen. Even with great photography a true colour is also very difficult to see when looking on a screen as monitors and phones vary greatly.
If you are choosing your fabric from a fabric shop then it is still a good idea to ask for a fabric swatch so that you can take it home and look at it with your current scheme.
