We’re sure you know that light makes a dramatic impact on any interior and because of that fact, you understand that curtains play a much more important role in your home than simply dressing up your windows. They have the power to alter the way a room is illuminated; letting you control it to get just the right amount you want.
Read our tips and tricks about sheer curtains to learn how they can change the look of any room and discover the many styles that can suit your space. Let your imagination loose and get inspired!
In a living room or bedroom, sheer curtains can lighten the overall vibe of the space. They have a distinct ability to develop a scheme that’s relaxing and bright all at once. By allowing sunlight to stream into a room in a soft, filtered way, the result is a soothing glow that floods every nook and cranny. The feeling is never overpowering, rather, it creates an ambiance that’s perfect for an afternoon snooze or for setting the tone for a beautiful day.
Loved for their transparent qualities and high-end appearance, linen and cotton or a blend of the two is often chosen for sheer curtains. The same can be said of voile-like fabrics that deliver an ethereal effect when used for curtains. These materials work really well in both traditional and modern interiors and can lean either to the casual side or towards something more formal. In a living room, mellow lighting sets a warm and welcoming feel, letting guests know they can be at ease in your home.
When it comes to length, this type of curtain looks great with a little extra fabric peddling on the floor. You can enhance the casual attitude sheer curtains can bring to your home by cracking open a window and letting the breeze blow them around a little. Think beachy, calm, relaxed.
A popular styling option is to layer sheers with more opaque curtains. It gives you total control over the lighting in your home whether it’s during day time or nighttime. If the sunshine coming in your window is too intense at certain times of the day, you can close the thicker curtains until the sun’s strength lessens a little. Same goes for after dark car headlights and street lamps (or for when you’re getting cozy with your significant other and need some extra privacy).
When considering colours, neutrals are always a safe way to go. But neutral doesn’t have to mean boring. We’ve got loads of sheer options with textures and tonal prints to keep things interesting. We also offer solid hues and bold patterns in almost any colour of the rainbow, so whatever gets your juices flowing, you’ll be able to find it with just a few clicks.
