Fabrics for your Kitchen

Last week we focused on ways to bring summer into your home and I mentioned fabrics. This week I’m going to look at different fabrics for the kitchen. Be it fabric for roman blinds, curtains, cushions or chair seats, fabric warms the room as well as absorbing sound therefore making the kitchen a much more welcoming space to be.

Retro Kitchen Fabric

Fabrics designs containing utensils and crockery have a retro appeal now too and are making a comeback.

This fabric with utensils from the 1960s (or maybe even before that) would give a kitchen plenty of charisma if made into chair cushions.

Bringing Food In

Prestigious Pickle

Prestigious brings zest and colour into your kitchen with reminders of the freshness of fruit, vegetables and herbs in its Pickle design. It’s bound to get people talking as no one could be shy in this bright environment.

Bringing Nature In

What better way to bring nature in but with farm and woodland animals and these two designs will be charming in a country kitchen. Their muted colours mean the fabric carry an unstated elegance too.

Sanderson’s Woodland Walk collection includes hares, squirrels, woodland fruits, muted autumnal leaves and co-ordinating checks. Beautiful.

Vanessa Arbuthnott’s Cockerel collection comes in a range of colourways and features chickens, feathers and different sized eggs. Perfect for a country kitchen.

Traditionally, kitchen dressers were often crammed with a variety of plates, jugs, mugs and other crockery and this “Dresser” fabric by Emma Bridgewater certainly manages to include all of those, many of them are her own crockery designs of course. Personally, while I love it in the roman blinds, I’m finding it a little busy for the curtains. What do you think?

For me, it would be the roman blinds and the cushions. Less is more and I love it. Emma Bridgewater has such a following and is so synonymous with country kitchen designs, this is bound to be popular.


Romo ticking stripes

Striped fabric in muted colours, such as this ticking fabric by Romo, are beautifully classic in a kitchen and will work in country and contemporary kitchen settings. They are also very easy to co-ordinate with other fabrics.

Brighter Colours

If you’re looking for more zest in your kitchen design, adding it via your fabrics means that you can increase it or decrease the brightness as much as you like. Yellow is a lovely summery colour for kitchens at all times of the year.

    Very unique and informative article its provided me with plenty of tips as to what kind of fabric I’d like in my kitchen, with the ‘Traditional’ design catching my eye! Quick question, what kind of tradesman would be required for this kind of job and would you know anyone that fits such fabric?? Thanks!

    Hi Patrick, thanks for your enquiry. For design tips you could hire an Interior Designer and for the wallpapering and painting you would hire a Painter/ Decorator
