A curtain is a piece of cloth meant to block or partially block the sunlight and simultaneously provides desired amount of privacy. Curtains are some times known as drape (mainly in United States) or drapery (in United Kingdom). Curtain sheers are one that is made from translucent fabric, such as loosely woven silk, velvet, cotton, linen, polyester, voile etc. and are generally washable.
Curtain sheers allow a significant amount of light to enter the room but also provides significant amount of Ultra Violet protection while retaining maximum visibility. Generally these are used both as standard and decorative hardware.
Choosing Curtain sheers sagely can help you to achieve rich stylish creativity in the field of interior designing and will be admired by all your friends and relatives. For example, formal sheer ought to be different from the personal ones. Hence remember to use them very wisely.
Curtain sheers comes in variety of materials, sizes, colors and pattern. Some of the departmental stores often have separate sections.
The price tag can be a matter of concern for few of you. So try not to go for brand name instead check out the quality before you buy. Once you are satisfied with the fabric quality proceed to the next step. The next most important step is choosing colors. So what I do is choose a color that goes with the season.
In summer season, cross-ventilation is most important and special importance should be given to see that it can radiate heat quickly. So during summer season light colored fabric should be used say light yellow, light brown, pink, light green etc. or a combination of colors like light yellow green or pink white etc. should be used. There are huge varieties of colors in fact, starting with solid colors there are prints, stripes etc. As for the fabrics the choice is wide and varied.
In winter season, cross ventilation is not needed so thick sheer fabrics can be used at that point of time. Dark Colors acts as insulators and can retain heat from sunlight for few hours. Colors like red or stripe violet with a combination of white spots makes your room look versatile and aesthetic.
In the end it is important to use curtain sheers that compliment your interior style. Having the right sheers for your windows will help you to create an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation which is something we all strive to create within our homes!
