How To Style Sheer Curtains

Sheer curtains are a great addition to any space. They’re versatile enough to work in just about any room and can be styled in a number of ways to suit your home’s aesthetic. They’re great for adding a soft, subtle touch to your windows and won’t overpower your existing decor. They’re also lightweight, affordable and easy to install. 

Here are a few ideas on how to style sheer curtains around your home. 

      1. Layer them with room darkening curtains


A great way to style sheer curtains, especially in the bedroom, is to layer them with a thicker, room darkening curtain over the top or behind. Sheer curtains are made from translucent fabric, which makes them a great choice for when you want to maintain some privacy during the day, but would also like some light to filter into your bedroom. Adding a curtain made from a blockout fabric gives you the flexibility to be able to keep the sun out when you need to. Draw them closed at night and enjoy a restful sleep.

      2. Hang them over glass doorways or large windows

When hung over glass doorways or large windows, sheer curtains make a great style statement. They diffuse natural light and can actually give the impression that a space is brighter and lighter than it actually is, especially if they’re hung floor to ceiling or in a large row. If you have a wall or windows or a large glass sliding doorway, dress them in sheers, it really adds that ‘wow-factor’ to your home. Sheer curtains hung over large spaces are glamorous and functional – they’re great for living spaces as they’ll both increase the privacy of your home and they’ll ensure the natural light is still able to filter through. 

      3. Drape them over roller blinds


A great way to style your sheers is to drape them over opaque or semi-opaque rollers blinds. This gives you the best of both worlds – the soft romantic look of sheer curtains and the option of more control over light and air flow in your home when you need it. This is an excellent option for bedrooms, living spaces and rooms like your study or home office. 

      4. Vary panels for added interest

Layer sheer curtains panels in different colours or textures over your windows to add visual interest to your space. Sheer curtains in varying shades can add depth to your space. If you’re looking to give your decor a little boost, then this a great way to make your space feel elegant and well-executed. 

     5. Try subtle colour

At The Blinds Gallery, our range of sheer curtains are available in a wide array of colours. Whilst classic white is a great choice for making your space feel light, bright and airy, you might also want to consider sheer curtains in other soft and subtle shades, like blue, grey and cream. For a more daring look you might even consider going bold with black sheer curtains, or opt for sheer curtains with metallic accents. 

     6. Hang them over venetian blinds

Sheer curtains pair beautifully with venetian blinds, especially when choosing them in the same colour. Venetian blinds are durable, practical and timeless. With their horizontal slat design they’re ideal for homeowners who want to enjoy complete control over the light and privacy of a room, but not everyone prefers the look of blinds. Styling them with sheer curtains will soften up their look and give your space a dreamy appeal. 

     7. Hang them over your bed


Sheer curtains aren’t just for windows! Try hanging them creatively over your bed, or even using them to divide spaces around your home!

I write this email in appreciation of the excellent service provided to me on three separate occasions when I have purchased blinds from The Blinds Gallery for our house. I have purchased approximately forty blinds, both manually and electronically controlled and have found the process quite seamless.
On each occasion when dealing with the staff I have received excellent service. The sales team have been very knowledgeable regarding the product they are selling.
Your front of house Hayley does her job to perfection and does an excellent job in promoting your brand. John, from a service and a technical side of the business does a great job and is very knowledgeable with the products and procedures. Nothing was too much trouble.
Nick. He is an excellent trades person and is an excellent example of the quality that The Blinds Gallery offers. I have recommended The Blinds Gallery to several friends and family as we have big windows where the up/down blinds are required.
Hayley and John, please pass on my sincere thanks to Nick for his excellent trades skills and forward this email to the appropriate people.

I have just had the guys leave from the installation of my new curtains. I couldn’t jump on here quick enough and let you know what an amazing experience we have had and they look fantastic!

Right from the moment of meeting you Ferne, helping pick out the curtains and being patient with the decision making of two girls who can’t make up their mind, to the two men who came to install them. They were amazing, there was no mess left, they were polite and did such a great job at the install.

We will definitely be back to finish the rest of the house soon!
Thank you again!

Also, it has been a pleasure dealing with your friendly and professional staff.

I wish to say how delighted I am with the blinds that you recently made and installed for me. I must also mention that your prices were excellent compared to other quotes I received.

Janine - Jolimont

I would just like to say what wonderful customer service Michelle gave me when I came into the display showroom. I had a good idea of what I wanted but Michelle made suggestions and recommendations and showed me products I wasn't familiar with.

Amanda - Aveley

I have found your blinds give good value for price, and the installers are very pleasant and helpful. I wanted to let you know what a good experience dealing with your company has been.

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for our amazing shutters they look amazing and really finish the house off. Lee was great to - very thorough and clean. Customer service was of very high standard and i would have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks again.

Dea - Gwelup

Just to say "thank you" to everyone involved in the quoting, measuring, manufacture and instillation of internal shutters. We had a few hiccoughs upstairs but these problems were addressed and resolved. Downstairs went like clockwork.  Manufacturing time was much less and instillation was quick, clean and efficient thanks to Lee and Say who were like a well oiled machine. Great teamwork. Absolutely love the product and due to the efficiencies and the manner in which problems were handled, I would have no hesitation in recommending The Blinds Gallery.
