Sheer curtains are made of thin, often transparent fabric. Traditional sheer curtains may have woven patterns, while more up-to-date sheer curtains are threaded with colour in more intricate weaves than older sheer curtain styles. Homeowners often hang sheer curtains because of the curtains' decorative versatility.

Sheer Curtains with Draperies

Add sheer curtains to your draperies to complement any room's colours. Hang the sheer curtains on the inner rod of a double curtain rod. Hang your draperies on the outer rod. The sheer curtains' extra layer of fabric adds a decorative element as the curtains help control light flow. Close both the drapes and the sheer curtains to block the sun completely; open the drapes and leave the sheer curtains closed to let in most of the sunlight. The slightly filtered light gives the room a natural ambience, further emphasising the room's colour scheme.

Sheer Curtains for Small Spaces

Because you must manage a lot of details without a lot of space, it's challenging to decorate small spaces. Sheer curtains help open up an otherwise tight and crowded room. Simply hang floor-to-ceiling sheer curtain panels from wall to wall to visually expand the space and create a softness in the room.

Semi-Sheer Curtains

White pencil-pleat semi-sheer curtains, combined with a white Roman blind, allow sunshine to peek into a room and create a crisp, fresh and airy feeling. Use a white curtain rod to complete the clean look. This semi-sheer window treatment works well with off-white walls and furnishings, as well as a splash of vibrant turquoise.

Sheer Scarf Curtain

Sheer scarf curtains hang on your window in a number of ways; it's similar to how you can wear scarves around your neck in several different styles. In a swag and tail format, sheer scarf curtains adorn an airy and open sun room. Drape sheer scarf curtains over sheer curtain panels, or combine them with semi-sheer curtain panels or standard curtain panels.
