While choosing between natural and synthetic fabrics you should give preference to the synthetic ones. They, unlike cotton, have better stretching qualities, which will provide smoother surface.
While ordering fabric for wall decoration, remember to book a roll with a margin of at least 20 inches. However, the accurate calculation will depend on the size of a finished surface.
Having draped the section over the windows using fabric scraps, you can save money. For this you will need 2 or 3 rolls of smaller length. However, it is fraught with increasing number of stitches.
If the ceiling height is greater than the width of the roll, you can treat the remaining surface of the walls with white or monochromatic paint with fabric, stucco, etc. This will not only solve the problem of lack of fabric, but also will diversify the appearance of the room. Do not forget to hide the seams while draping by wooden or plastic strips. In addition, the strips can be upholstered with the same fabric.
Those, who want a greater sophistication in the interior of the room, can use moldings instead of the wooden or plastic strips. It looks original and allows to show imagination. Moldings generally provide a wide variety of options to revitalize the interior space and allows you to add many elements, combining styles and colors.
