How To Style Sheer Curtains

Modern day sheers have come a long way since their days as dowdy drapes. Nowadays, sheer curtains are the go-to, on-trend window treatment for interior designers and homeowners alike. Keep reading for everything you need to know about these soft window shades, plus get tips on how to style them in your home.

What are sheer curtains?

Sheer curtains are a style of curtain made from a lightweight, translucent fabric which acts a daytime privacy screen and filters natural light. These curtains make an elegant, practical addition to rooms that have large windows facing the outside world, as the sheer fabric allows you to see out but will protect your private living spaces from prying eyes (during the day). This makes sheers an excellent choice for the loungeroom, living areas or even the bedroom.

Are sheer curtains in style?

While heavy drapes or curtains can make your home look outdated, sheers are a great way to breathe new life into a place. They come in a variety of neutral shades, with white sheer curtains continuing to be a popular choice. This shade can open up your windows, making any room look lighter and brighter in an instant.

Custom curtains vs. ready-made sheer curtains

Unlike ready-made sheer curtains, custom sheers can be made to perfectly fit your windows or sliding doors. They can be made to simply cover your windows, to fall from floor to ceiling, or even wall to wall for an extra dramatic touch.

Home styling tips for sheer curtains

    AU Nature look

    Au Naturel: Pure linen sheer curtains fit well with a laid back, natural or coastal style interior, with their organic, textured appearance helping to bring the luxe, but laid-back look to life. Best of all, linen is hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial by nature, meaning it’s the perfect choice for anyone suffering from allergies.

    Classic Cool look

    Classic Cool: More classically decorated spaces look great when paired with a timeless voile sheer. These sheer styles are smoother in appearance and bring an open, breezy feel to any space. Add these to your bedroom windows to create some romantic ambiance!

    Contemporary look

    Contemporary: This look is all about being at the forefront of style, without getting caught up in passing trends. Think simplicity, understated sophistication, layered textures, clean bold lines and sheer curtains, which make the perfect addition with their softly textured fabric.

    Rustic Earth look

    Rustic Earth: Chances are, you’ve most likely seen this style before, without knowing what to call it. This relaxed, modern look features streamlined furniture, natural elements, earth tones, and rustic materials. Pair this look with beige sheers for a look that’s both lived-in and luxe.

    Metal Edge look

    Metal Edge: Metallic feature accents aren’t everyone’s cup of tea but can look amazing in contemporary homes. Make your sheer curtains the star of the show with an eye-catching metallic motif or pattern. Subtle metallic sheens are also available for a more understated look.
