Net, sheer & lace curtains
Sheer curtains let daylight through while still providing privacy—making them perfect to use in a layered window solution. With the options available here, including net curtains, you’re sure to find the right ones to help you give your home a boost.
Layering window treatments with sheer curtains
Combining sheer curtains with heavier curtains makes for a versatile, balanced window treatment in the living room, bedroom or any room in the home. While net curtains or any type of sheer curtains allow you to show off elegant bay windows or window doors, they also provide a degree of privacy while still letting a lot of light in. When paired with room darkening curtains or blackout curtains through a double or triple curtain rod, sheer curtains help provide a flexible window treatment solution for any mood or time of day. Draw open thicker curtains and let sheer curtains softly filter some light as you take your coffee on the couch or read the paper in bed. Let the light dance into the room through transparent curtains when entertaining for lunch. When it’s time to take a nap or put on a movie, block out all light or just cut down on glare by pulling closed thicker curtains.
Sheer curtains or net curtains?
Net curtains are a type of sheer curtain. While generally speaking, net curtains may be considered to be less decorative and are limited in color options than sheer curtains, this is not always the case. Now, both net and sheer curtains can be highly decorative and available in a wide variety of colors.
