Batik comes in many patterns. It can be floral or stripes that look tribal. As such, it makes an interesting motif on clothes, furniture and even the walls. If you have an old batik cloth lying around, see if you can make it into a pillowcase or table runner! Here are the other ways you can incorporate the batik patterns into your home!
1. Cushion or pillow covers
To add some vitality into the room, you don’t need to reupholster the whole couch to make it work. Just by changing the cushion or pillowcases into batik patterns is enough to make the furniture look brand new.
If you’re looking for something different, try out a batik lampshade. Having batik lampshades add colour and interest to the room without much changes needed! Easy peasy!
The easiest way to have batik in the house is to have it as a rug or a mat. It can act as a focal point if it’s placed in the kitchen, the living room or even the bedroom. Smaller ones can be used in bathrooms too. It’ll be even better if it’s reversible!
The batik pattern on walls looks stunning as well. If you’re afraid that it’s too much for the whole room, treat it like a patterned wallpaper by covering only a section of a wall. It can be a section of the house entrance, living room, bathroom or the vanity area.
6. Placemats and coasters
Smaller cloths can be used as beautiful placemats. The stunning colours and patterns will be perfect to complete the table set up at parties, gatherings and also the usual everyday mealtimes.
