Gone are the days of flashy and gaudy furnishings. Today, people prefer light and subtle materials. Fabrics that are minimalistic, elegant and feathery are liked better. And this applies to the window treatment as well. A timeless and beautiful option for the same would be sheer curtains.
Although they’d been quite neglected for some time, sheer curtains have gained their place in home décor. People are finding them advantageous. They impart aesthetic value. And they’re functional. How? Here are ways how they can benefit your home.
Brightening up your room
Who doesn’t love a home filled with natural light in the day? It makes the room airy and bright. If you’re looking for some filtered vitamin D and a room that gives out happy, sunny vibes – sheer curtains are your best bet.
Their translucence allows natural light to pass through, not entirely, but just enough. They’ll also give you essential UV protection. They can blend well with blinds and blackout curtains too.
Giving you the privacy you need
Most people sadly describe closing their curtains as darkening their room. No, not with sheer curtains. With them, you can still have a bright room, without having to compromise on the privacy you need.
The sheer fabric is thin enough to allow sunlight, and thick enough to disallow the eyes of those on the outside of your room. It blocks the inside view.
Letting you enjoy the outside view
Sure, they block the inside view. But not the outside view. Sheer curtains’ translucency will help you enjoy the view outside while covering your windows.
They can boost the ambience of your room, add an uncanny charm to it, and let you appreciate the scenic landscape on your home’s exterior.
Adding style, effortlessly
Timeless, dreamy, romantic, sensual — sheer curtains help you achieve all these feelings for your room. Their versatility is their true power.
If you’re looking to create a calm and relaxing aura, go for neutral colors like grey, white, cream, beige or soft pink. The breezy sheer curtains will very well complement your bright bed sheets and other bed linen. Or if you are keen on using bright colors, go ahead. You could team them up with brighter colored solid shades curtains too.
Making your room look bigger
This is a loveable reason indeed. If you feel that the ceiling in your room is too low or your room is too compact, pick sheer curtains.
Install them from floor to ceiling, if you want to make the ceiling appear higher. It’s a plus, if the curtains have vertical stripes. Get them customized longer than your window pane, if you want to make your room appear bigger. Sheer is a light and subtle material, so it will also feel clutter-free.
A smart fabric with a simple yet sophisticated style – that’s sheer for you. Sheer curtains that are made of 100% cotton or linen feature natural fibres and have varied choices in color, print and style.
Pick the shade that’ll match or complement the color of the rest of your room. That includes furnishings like sheets, bedding and cushion covers. Set a relaxed vibe, fill your home with energising natural light and style. Get some sheer!
