You have a lot of curtains to choose from and it’s wise to consider several options before settling on one. One of the options we believe is worth considering is sheer draperies. Let’s go over the top four reasons our customers end up making this choice.
1. Get the right level of privacy
You do want your curtains to offer privacy but you also want them to let plenty of natural light in. Sheer curtains offer the best of both worlds. You get tons of natural light – assuming the sun is playing along – yet people can’t see in your windows. These are not the best choices for rooms where you need 100% privacy, like the bathroom, but for rooms like the living room where you don’t mind people being able to barely see the outline of your furniture from outside, they’re a great choice.
2. Sheers offer a ton of elegance
Put simply, sheer curtains are beautiful, classy, and elegant. They provide a delicate sensibility to any room. They’re soft, breezy, and airy, which makes them great options for rooms like living rooms, dens, and even bedrooms.
3. Get UV protection for your drapes
When you think of sheer curtains you likely think of them hanging solely for the way they look but in fact they can be excellent UV protectors for your curtains. Hang them behind your drapes and they’ll help work as a protective barrier between the UV rays of the sun and your drapes. This can help your drapes look new for years longer.
4. Sheer drapes are an affordable choice
You do want drapes you love but you also want drapes that won’t break your budget. When this is your concern, it’s sheers to the rescue! They are made from lightweight fabric – typically either 100% polyester or a polyester / cotton blend. These materials aren’t nearly as expensive as other, heavier types of window coverings. As a result, sheers are one of the most economical choices you can make when decorating a room. Plus, you get tons of options.
