Patent vinyl has a very nice sheen to it that makes items like leggings, shoes, handbags, and even costumes stand out.  Patent vinyl, is the animal friendly alternative to leather, and is far more versatile.  Patent vinyl fabrics allow for individuals to create fashion looks and accessories that stand out from the crowd.

Patent vinyl is not just reserved for clothing and accessories any longer, it is also able to be utilized in the home.  Home décor options are becoming more and more avant garde and are allowing individuals to express themselves through the pieces in their homes.

One of the newest, coolest, and funniest options for patent vinyl is wall decals.  There are many custom websites that offer wall decals to individuals who are looking for a little something extra for their walls, however, these wall decals generally are pretty pricey and are not made with patent vinyl.

Patent vinyl fabrics, however, can be made to be a homemade version of these vinyl wall decals.  This allows you to customize the decals any way you want without the constraints of a wall decal supply company.  Patent vinyl has also made its way into other home décor options through bedding, shower curtains, place mats, sofas, and much more.

Bedding is generally made with cotton and satin fabrics, but patent vinyl is another option for those who want to have a more stylish bed.  Patent vinyl can be used to make an entire bed set of a fitted sheet, a top sheet, and pillow covers.  However, you have to be absolutely in love with vinyl fabric in order to do this and be comfortable sleeping in it.

If you are less extreme, then patent vinyl can upholster a cute little throw pillow on your bed in a bright accent color in order to give the bed set some attitude.  Another way to incorporate patent vinyl into bedding is to have your duvet or comforter cove trimmed at the edges with patent vinyl.

For example you could have a sued snakeskin embossed comforter cover with patent vinyl on the lower two corners, and the pillow could have patent vinyl on all four corners leaving the middle the soft embossed snakeskin sued.  There are many different options to choose from when it comes to incorporating something as eye catching as patent vinyl.

Patent vinyl can also be used in other areas of bedding such as upholstery of the bed frame itself.  This vinyl fabric looks great as a head board material, or if you have a round bed, as an upholstery for the entire bed frame.  Upholstery of beds is not the only place that patent vinyl can go, it can also be used on sofas and chairs in order to create a leather look without the steep cost of leather.  This is perfect for a bachelor’s pad or a sophisticated office; you can even upholster your office desk chair in patent vinyl in order to give it an exceptional look.

Another great option is to use the patent vinyl fabric as a shower curtain.  In fact, pretty much every shower curtain available on the market uses some vinyl fabric.  Patent vinyl, however, would give a great sheen as well as give more privacy to the individual using the shower.

There are different gauges in patent vinyl material, but in general it will be all one color.  Your shower curtain can be a design of anything from bright or dark colors, to a rainbow effect, the options are endless.  Other curtain options are not of the shower kind for patent vinyl.  Since you can get a heavier gauge, patent vinyl curtains are great privacy walls or room separators for small homes.  It is not recommended to us on windows, especially in hot climates as the sun will likely discolor the vinyl fabric as well as heat it up too much causing the curtain negative effects.

There are so many different and great options for use of patent vinyl in both chic and funky ways.  Patent vinyl allows for individuals to express themselves in other ways previously unavailable to them through conventional fabrics.  Try it out and you might be surprised with the looks you can come up with.
