Esparto, the summer material to decorate your home with

If you have decided to buy a house in Madrid and are looking for a unique way to decorate it, you should consider choosing the highly versatile and little-known material: esparto. In the past, this noble material was associated with a very complete craftsmanship and its extreme resistance has always been adopted. Few could imagine that it was not only used to make tools or rough linings, but it is now also used to decorate all types of rooms.

Esparto combines the best with a line of classic or rustic decoration. If vintage style is your favourite, keep in mind that there are renowned artists who use esparto as the basis of their creations. Various types of rugs and all kinds of imaginative decors are based on this youthful material.

In fact, cottages or those that have gardens are being redecorated with the classic esparto blinds. The use of this material helps lower the indoor temperature by several degrees and effectively protects the house from too much sun exposure. The same thing happens with the classic circular rugs or with the enormous number of products that the skilled craftsmen do not stop selling.

It seems logical to think that the esparto material fits better in large properties with a large outside area. The material resists all kinds of adverse weather so it is also suitable for use in smaller houses and apartments. 

Professional and experienced decorators nowadays don't hesitate to use this material in all types of rooms. In some homes, it will be possible to include a piece of furniture, in others a carpet or rug, and in others a small brushstroke but nobody doubts the excellent combination of retro furniture by introducing this material to their rooms.

If you have decided to buy a house in Madrid, you should think of the esparto material as a durable but also a decorative material. Sometimes, the little details in a particular room add to the charm of the place. Not surprisingly, esparto is the trend in decoration that is setting a new path for hundreds of professionals in the decorating industry. It is up to you to use objects made of this vegetable fibre that seems to have revalued the more classic decoration by returning it to its rightful place.
