April 13 . Article: Why Sheer Curtains are Worth It

Sheer Curtains: A Versatile and Affordable Investment

Sheer curtains are lightweight window coverings that come in a variety of fabrics. Cotton, lace, silk, chiffon, and linen are some of the options. They can also come in a wide range of colours and patterns. Due to their lightweight design and easy customisation they are a very affordable choice for those homeowners and decorators who are looking to enliven their living room without much initial investment.

For Any Season

Sheer curtains are a great touch to your home for any season. When placed effectively and efficiently they can help to maximise the amount of light that enters your home – perfect for the peak of winter when you want to squeeze in as much sun as humanly possible, while maintaining a sense of privacy. When summer hits, a darker colour sheet curtain kept shut across your windows will be great for keeping your home nicely shaded and cool.

Affordable

Due to their lightweight and relative ease of manufacture, sheer curtains are a great idea for those looking to inject some cheer into their home on a more restricted budget. They will not set you back as much as heavier, more luxurious drapes – but don’t worry, you won’t be sacrificing any style.

Speaking of Style…

Sheer curtains are available in literally hundreds of different types of colours and shades. From natural creams and whites right through to deep reds and browns, you’ll surely be able to match your sheet curtains with whatever paint and décor theme you have going in your home. Also keep in mind that you can create contrast using your curtains – if you have a neutral or pale palette in your room then some darker sheer curtains can make a bold statement.

Think Outside the Box

You’re not limited to windows when it comes to decorating your home with sheer curtains. You can also use them in place of doors. Having quite a few doors in your home can create a cluttered and cramped feel. For those who are into a bit of DIY renovation, you could consider removing your doors and replacing them with some light sheer curtain separators for a Japanese feel. You could also use them as a bed canopy – bringing a very royal, sumptuous feeling into your bedroom. And for those with porches and patios, some lightly coloured sheet curtains swaying gently in the breeze will add a romantic, summery feel to your outdoor space.

For Those with a Darker Side

Sheer curtains needn’t be all summer and sun. Some of us prefer night, shadow, darkness, and depth. If you are looking to inject a darker theme into your home, perhaps with darkly stained timbers and furniture contrasting with subtle lighting or lighter décor, some darkly coloured sheet curtains can really help complete the look you are going for.

In the Bathroom

Sheer curtains can be used in the bathroom to create a light and vibrant feel as you get ready for work or unwind with a long hot bath.

If you’re after a versatile, cost efficient and stylish option then sheet curtains could be a perfect solution for you. Contact us today to inquire about our sheer fabric options.
