WHAT ARE SHEER CURTAINS?

Sheers are window curtains that allow natural light indoors while providing daytime privacy. But their functionality doesn’t stop there. They can also help hide an unfavourable view while providing UV protection for your flooring and furnishings.

Never out of style, these timeless curtains have been a preferred window covering since their invention in the late 19th century. Of course, while the styles on-trend at that time have changed, the use of sheers has never diminished with new fabrics, technology and styles evolving ever since. These curtains are used to soften modern, minimalist and industrial-style interiors and remain a sought-after window furnishing for traditional homes.

Discover why elegant sheers remain a classic window covering solution. This guide focuses on sheer curtains, a popular option in our wide range of curtains and blinds. We’ll walk you through everything you need to know, from selecting the right style for your home to keeping your curtains looking fresh.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF SHEER CURTAINS?

Sheers transform any room by adding a light, airy touch that complements the style and function of your living spaces. Unlike other window furnishings like eyelet curtains, pinch pleat curtains, pencil pleat curtains and tab top curtains, sheers are available in styles like S-wave or S-fold curtains and Veri Shades®. These options provide a modern twist on traditional sheers.

Sometimes referred to as wave fold or S-fold curtains, the S-wave style was named for the ‘S’ pattern it creates where the fabric joins the curtain track or curtain rod. These smooth, continuous waves flow gracefully from the curtain header all the way down to the bottom of the curtain fabric.

Veri Shades® are revolutionary window coverings that combine the elegant look of curtains with the practicality of blinds. This innovative design features soft, adjustable fabric slats that can transition from sheer to opaque with a simple turn.

WHY SHEER CURTAINS?

Sheers have many benefits, from light control to daytime privacy. These window treatments are an excellent solution for screening out onlookers from a busy street and protecting your floors and furnishings from the harsh Australian sun.

When sheer curtains are hung from roof to floor, they can make your room look and feel bigger. Small windows can appear larger with these curtains. No matter your window size, they are the perfect window dressing that can bring light and a feeling of space to your living room, dining room or bedroom.

Brighten your interiors with sheers that infuse a warm glow into your home, creating a sense of airiness and space. Wanting to let a little more light in? Use curtain tiebacks to fasten the curtains and hold them in place.

HOW DO SHEERS WORK?

Sheer curtain fabrics soften the natural light that fills your room. This creates a warm, inviting ambience and protects your interior furnishings from the harsh effects of direct sunlight by preserving their colour and integrity.

Sheers also play a role in enhancing daytime privacy. They allow you to enjoy daylight without opening your home to the outside world by offering a sense of seclusion without sacrificing brightness.

The movement and texture added by the lightweight fabric of sheers also contribute to the overall aesthetic of your space. Sheer curtain fabrics offer a soft, dynamic look that can make your interiors feel more spacious and connected to the outdoors.

HOW TO LAYER SHEER CURTAINS

Mastering light can have a transformational effect on living spaces. Carpet Court’s range of high-quality, Australian-made curtains brings versatility in light control. Beginning with sheer curtains to flood your interiors with daytime brightness, you can then layer them with other types of curtains or blinds for different looks and functions, depending on your needs.

Adding blockout curtains behind your sheers can give you both natural light during the day and privacy at night. And if you're looking to make a style statement, you can pair your sheers with some patterned drapery for some colour or texture to your space.

If you require room darkening or night-time privacy, you could try the following ideas:

  • Double curtains: Hang two rows of sheers or add a layer of blockout curtain panels.
  • Blinds with sheers: Team your sheers with roller blinds, Venetian blinds or Roman blinds that can be lowered or completely retracted as desired.

Layer sheers with various window treatments to create a dynamic, textured appearance in your room. These Australian-made sheers are ideal for adding depth and a soft ambience, whether you're aiming to soften the industrial edges of a space or to enhance the light and airy feel of Scandi décor.

Sheer lightweight fabrics also bring movement and texture to your windows. Go for white sheer curtains to maximise natural light, or if your window is in a particularly sunny spot, you can pick a darker sheer fabric to tone down harsh sunlight, perfect for light filtering options.

HOW TO WASH AND HANG YOUR SHEER CURTAINS

Start by checking the manufacturer's instructions for the best care methods specific to your sheers. Here's a straightforward guide to keeping your curtains looking their best:

  • Spot clean spills or stains immediately with water or a diluted mild detergent.
  • Gently vacuum your curtains regularly to avoid dust build-up.
  • Hand wash delicate fabric sheers to preserve their quality.
  • For machine-washable sheers, opt for cold water and a gentle cycle.
  • Line dry or re-hang in warm weather for drying directly in your windows.
  • Make sure they're completely dry before re-hanging to avoid mildew.
  • Smooth out any wrinkles gently by hand or use a low-heat iron if necessary.
  • Hang them evenly to showcase their full decorative potential.
