Sheer Curtains

Sometimes called Voile curtains, sheers create a soft, delicate ambience while allowing plenty of natural light to flow into your home. The timeless elegance of sheer and semi-sheer curtains makes them an ideal choice for adding interior privacy while still maintaining a light, airy and open feeling with your window treatment in both traditional and modern homes.

Fabric Choices

Choosing the right fabric for your sheer curtains involves more than deciding on the perfect colour to match your interior design.

The unique properties, texture and the way various types of sheer fabric hang, along with functionality and performance for light filtering and durability, make some voile curtain textiles better suited for dressing windows than others.

Amaru's decor consultants can provide expert advice on choosing the best textiles for residential sheer curtains for homes and holiday houses through to more hardwearing sheers for high traffic commercial window treatments in offices, hotels and motels.

Suitable Areas

Sheers are ideal for softening the look of any room, from a modern formal living room to a newborn’s nursery. Pale coloured or plain white sheer curtains can tone down rooms that contain dramatically coloured or patterned feature décor, enhancing these elements rather than making the room feel too busy. Dark grey or black sheer curtains are less light reflective and easier to see through than sheer white curtains, making them great for interior privacy without sacrificing day time views.

Symmetry

Create Symmetry

Sheer curtains can help to create a uniform sense of balance and symmetry throughout your home regardless of whether you have different sized and shaped windows in a room.

Lining

Coloured Lining

Layer your custom sheer curtain with a matching colour coordinated lining panel on a separate track to create a simple soft window treatment that offers both night and daytime privacy.

Illusion of Height

Illusion of Height

Architects and interior designers have long used curtains to accentuate windows and openings and create an illusion of greater ceiling height. The long vertical soft folds of floor-to-ceiling sheer curtains, especially when used on windows positioned well above floor height, will naturally draw the eye upwards, helping to make a room feel larger than it is.

FAQs about Sheer Curtains

Expand all
Do sheer curtains provide privacy at night?

No.Sheer and semi-sheer curtains only provide a visual barrier into an interior during the day because of the abundance of external light. When homeowners typically turn on their internal lights at night, this reverses that visual barrier, making it easy to see into the home and harder to see out. As such, we recommend layering your sheers with a blind. blockout curtain or having a matched coloured lining panel on a separate track to ensure you have privacy after dark.

Do sheers stay permanently drawn or can they be opened?

Although most people choose to leave their window sheers closed as a daytime privacy screen, they can be easily opened and closed at will as required, provided they are fitted to a track.

Can sheer curtains be motorised or automated?

Yes, we offer a range of motorised curtain track options for our sheer curtains, from remote control operation through to automated programmable timer.

Are made to measure sheer curtains expensive to buy?

Custom-made sheer curtains will vary in cost based on the type of sheer fabric, linings, lengths and widths. Naturally, the more fabric and specialised manufacturing required will determine the price of a custom sheer curtain. Whether looking for cheap sheer curtains in simple, plain designs right through to feature soft furnishings in luxurious high-end designer sheer fabrics, Amaru will work with your budget to create a perfect solution for your windows.
