Let's say your child has a runny nose and decides that the patio door drapery panels are a good place to wipe their nose.... you might get a little angry. (this did happen to a friend of mine)
|Would I really do that Mom?|
Let's say your husband spills his drink and it ends up on your silk panels. What do you do? Hmmm let's not think about this too hard. It hasn't happened yet, but it could.
Let's say your cat decides to stretch her claws on your panels... this would not be good. I realize a cat doesn't know its silk and could do that to any fabric, but its so shiny and soft, its' just bound to happen.
Food and silk can be a nasty combination, especially since silk tends to mark and stain very easily. I know fabric companies are always on the look out for more durable, sun-resistant fabric, but its still silk!
What would another option be? Faux silk is a polyester and to many is hard to tell from the real deal.
Silk drapery in the dining room? That's ok, how often do you eat in there anyway?
If you have silk in your kitchen, please don't despair, I don't dislike you at all. You must be a person with a great amount of taste.
If you haven't yet decided on the type of fabric for your kitchen window coverings, look at some practical options that give you the same look you're after!
