How To Style Sheer Curtains

What are sheer curtains?

Sheer curtains are a stylish curtain option for your home. Made from a transparent and very lightweight fabric, these curtains tend to be used either to add more privacy to your home, or to enhance your home décor.

Why choose sheer curtains for your home?

There are many reasons to consider sheer curtains for your home!

  • They’re an affordable window covering.
  • They are available in different colours.
  • They add additional privacy to your home.
  • They can make your space feel more elegant.
  • For rooms with direct sunlight, they can soften the incoming light create a soft glow throughout your room.
  • They pair well with many other window coverings.

Are sheer curtains in fashion?

Sheer curtains have been a popular window covering for quite some time and can be considered to have become the new lace. Lace and sheer curtains have the same properties, but sheers offer a more modern and elegant finish.

It all depends on your home decor and taste as to which style you prefer!

Sheer curtain colour options

Classic sheers

When you think of sheers, images of classic white, cream, or grey shades draped delicately over your window tend to come to mind.

These colours pair perfectly with just about any type of interior décor, and also work to make your space feel airy and open.

It’s best to choose lighter coloured sheers if you want to make your room appear brighter, while maintaining your privacy.

Metallic coloured sheers

If you're feeling a little more daring, sheers with a metallic look could be the right choice for you.

Metallic grey shades convey feelings of security, comfort and elegance all in one, and pair perfectly with décor that's a little more modern or edgy.

Interior designers are seeing an increase in the popularity of metallic accents in contemporary homes, which translates into sheer curtains beautifully.

This styling of sheers adds a bit of sparkle and interest to your windows, while still keeping the look restrained and sophisticated.

Black sheers

For something completely different, black sheers are becoming a more popular option for your home décor!

The dark fabric of these curtains creates a darker look in your interior, helping to create a peaceful and quiet space.

While black is certainly not a traditional colour when it comes to curtains, it makes for a dynamic addition to any home with a more modern look and feel to it.

Sheer curtain styling

There are a few different ways you can style sheer curtains and there are benefits to all, so it’s entirely up to your personal preference and needs!

Sheer curtains by themselves

For rooms where you don’t need a lot of light control, sheer curtains by themselves can work nicely.

While you can choose to style your sheers like this in any room you like, we recommend choosing to do this in rooms that aren’t in direct eyesight of your neighbours, as your sheers will only provide minimal privacy compared to some of our other window covering options.

Sheers over blinds

The most common way to style sheers is by pairing them with other window coverings, typically blinds.

Blinds like Roller blinds, Venetian blinds and Roman blinds are popular options to consider with sheers!

Floor to ceiling sheers

For a more dramatic and featured look, you can choose to install your sheer curtains above your window and have floor to ceiling coverage.

The main benefit of doing this, is that it helps to make your room feel much bigger than it is! Another benefit is that it’s a dramatic and eye-catching finish to your room.
