Whats the difference between Curtains and curtain sheers?


Sheers have a transparent looking fabric that can be used as curtains to dress windows according to how much light and privacy your room needs.

They can be used to dress  a window partially  or as an entire window covering to filter light.

Sheer panels for windows are most commonly made from voile, which is a French word that translates to ‘veil.’

One of the huge benefits for these type of curtains is you will still be able to see outside and enjoy natural light in your space, but an outsider’s view of your home interior will be blurred or completely obscured depending on the time of the day.

Sheers also add an aesthetic softness to a room and can help to create an airy or breezy style because they drape so effortlessly. Sheers are available in any colour, and some have patterns or embroidery for added interest.


How to use Sheers with curtains?


Have the curtains on the outside and the sheers on the inside


One of the most popular ways to dress the sheer is to have a sheer on the inside closer to the window and a curtain on the outside layer.

To do this, it will require 2 poles or tracks fitted , however it's now possible to have a track with dual functionality.
