Utilizing Sheer Curtains
Using the look of sheer curtains to enhance spaces in your home is limited only by your imagination. These lightweight curtains can open up and brighten any space. Consider these tips and ideas as you are shopping for sheers.
Let in Natural Light
If you have a room that needs more light, sheers can be your best friend. Airy, beautiful and lightweight, they allow the natural sunlight to filter in while still giving you soft and attractive curtain coverage. Sheers make excellent options for kitchen curtains, but can also be used in many other areas, including living and dining rooms, family rooms or dens and even bedrooms—if you combine them with another curtain option for when you need privacy.
Add Layers and Dimension
You can take advantage of natural light and creative a stylish, dimensional look with layers by utilizing sheers. You’ll simply need to choose the sheer curtains you want to go under another heavier curtain choice. You can using contrasting colors, complementary colors or stick with monochrome options for a serene feeling. The dual layers of curtains and sheers provide an attractive dimensional look and allow you multiple options for light and privacy. The extra fabric can also soften the room and help absorb sound.
Choosing Colors and Patterns for Sheers
While classic, single-colored sheer styles are beautiful, today you’re not just limited to those options. You have a wide selection of unique, colorful, and printed sheers to choose from, in designs ranging from elegant to modern. You don’t have to settle for bland neutral shades if you prefer something more lively, and there are plenty of choices, from soft and romantic rose-colored prints to bold geometric prints in deep blue or sea glass yellow. Striped sheers and color blocked sheers are also available to create a bold look.
Since sheers are lightweight and easy to change, they make it easy to adjust your curtains for any season. Opt for soft chocolate or deep yellow prints in fall and change things up with green, blue or teal prints for the summer months.
Make a Space Feel Larger With Curtain Sheers
If you have a room that feels small, hang curtain sheers the same or similar color to the wall above the window frame and let them skim the floor. The impact will be that the overall space will feel larger because of the monochrome look, and the natural light will only help this effect.
Creative Ways to Use Sheer Curtains in Bedrooms
You don’t have to only use sheers as window dressings. There are many ways you can get creative and use sheers to liven up or beautify your home, and the bedroom is the first place to start. Use beautiful sheers on a rod behind your bed for a headboard alternative that’s easy to change. Adorn a closet entryway with sheers to keep the space looking calm and elegant. Create a canopy around the master bed or in kids’ rooms.
Sheers for Porches
Hang sheers on the sides and/or front of porches to help make the space more private and beautiful. You’ll still get the natural light you want, but it will add a measure of softness and style to the space that can transform it.
Room Dividers and Doorways
If you want to separate a space in your home without making a permanent change or making it feel too enclosed, sheers can do the job. Installing them as room dividers or to section off an area of the room keeps things feeling open while still creating the sense of division you may want. If your home is overwhelmed with doors or doorways, use sheers to replace or cover certain ones to add style and softness.
Use curtain sheers to update a room in your home for a beautiful look that makes your home feel more wonderful than ever.
