Eco- awareness – quality and durability
One of the biggest interior design trends for 2010 is about getting value for money by using high quality products which are durable as well as practical. Some may say that is trend is a knee jerk reaction to the recession, as many people are having to tighten their belts and keep a close eye on their spending.
However, for many interior designers offering value for money has always been high on their priority list, otherwise they would quite simply go out of business! The trend is more about opting for materials and fabrics which are renowned for their longevity such as cotton, linen and some man made fabrics which includes polyester cotton blends.
Polyester cotton blends may not be totally natural products however, when it comes down to convenience, along with easy laundering and drying one could argue that they are more eco-friendly in a home than using 100% cotton which takes much longer to dry (in a dryer) and also requires ironing which again is using extra electricity!
Whichever stance you take at the end of the day everyone wants good value for money and whilst the old adage 'you get what you pay for' may be true the recession has also brought some very good deals to consumers, add the further bargains which can be found in the January sales are you really can find exceptional value for money!
There are some wonderful bedding sets which are ticking all the right boxes for this years design trends. Julian Charles bedding offers a luxury bedding sets which also have coordinating ready made curtains, so if you are looking for designer labels without the designer price tag you can snap up a real bargain! The bedding sets are made from high quality fabrics which offer durability as well as chic styling to your bedrooms.
One of the great advantages of designer bedding is the quality of the materials the designers select for their ranges. The last thing they want to do is ruin their reputations and therefore you can rest assured that you will be getting good value for your money, more especially when the prices are genuinely discounted!
