What is the difference between a cotton mosquito net and a polyester mosquito net? Well the answer is not as straightforward as you think and depends on a few individual factors.
Firstly you will have to consider the cost, as a cotton canopy usually is more than twice the cost of a polyester bed canopy.
It will depend on what effect and feel you want for your bedroom decor, some people just prefer the natural material over the man-made materials due to being more environmentally conscious and also preferring the luxurious feel of cotton.
With cotton you are able to dye the cotton to your preferred shade, but the polyester net is a good solution for outside as they are waterproofed, and if you live in a highly humid location they repel the water.
The polyester netting will be a lighter material to use and carry on your travels and can be easier to hang up as in alot of cases you can use a stick on a hook rather than a screw-in hook.
So basically if you have a tight budget and are buying purely for practical reasons as in mosquito protection, then you can’t go wrong with a polyester mosquito net. If you want a sumptuous wow factor in the bedroom and have an ample budget then a cotton mosquito net is for you.
