In modern wall design wallpaper is most often used for zoning rooms and to create a warm, cozy atmosphere. Zoning corrects the space and, with the help of wallpaper of different shades, you can select one zone and “hide” another.
The wall, free from furniture, is decorated with wallpaper with a bright print, and the rest of the walls are made of solid colors. This way of pasting can be used throughout the room or in a separate part of it.

Draperies fabric known for a long time, but only the palace nobility could afford it. Now everything is more democratic. Drapery is used to design bedrooms and living rooms. Like any other finish, drapery fabric has advantages and disadvantages.

I would consider environmental friendliness, simple installation, good noise absorption and the ability to avoid time-consuming and expensive work to align the walls to the big advantages. If the advantages of this decor are unambiguous, then the disadvantages are a big question.
Sustainability and easy installation
Fabric is undoubtedly more expensive than wallpaper, but if you compare the complexity of installation - wallpaper will lose. The life of drapery is less than that of wallpaper, but due to the tricks of installation (when the fabric can be removed, washed and hung back), it will serve no less.
Or, they say that the fabric attracts dust. But now fabrics for decorating walls are soaked with special solutions that make it resistant to dust and dirt.
