Update your windows with sheer curtains from Overstock.com. Sheer panels provide a touch of privacy when closed while still letting in sunlight to keep your room bright and airy. Breezy sheer panels come in many neutral colors so you can easily pair them with heavier drapes or valances. Patterning on the sheers draws attention and adds a sense of texture for a decorative element. These lightweight curtains come with a variety of header types, including rod pocket, grommet, pinch pleat, back tab, and tab top, for easy hanging on your curtain rods. Choose a length to hit just below the window, or go with a longer curtain to create a pool of lightweight, gauzy fabric on the floor. Brands including Exclusive Fabrics, Rizzy Home, and Window Elements offer options in linen, polyester, lace, silk, and more to create the texture and look you prefer.
1. Pair Sheers with Drapes
Place sheer curtains behind your traditional drapes to give your space a variety of privacy and lighting options. Pull back the traditional drapes to allow the light to filter through your sheer panels, while still maintaining a touch of privacy.
2. Amp Up Style with Patterned Sheers
Hang patterned sheers in front of your plain drapes to update your old window dressings. The patterns of the sheer panels will stand out against the solid color of your drapes, creating a layered effect and a textured style.
3. Use Sheers Over Blinds
Dress up plain or unsightly blends by accenting them with sheer curtain panels. The naturally lightweight sheers are easy to move when you need to adjust your blinds, and then fall back into place to beautifully filter the light.
4. Dress Up Curtain Rods
Give your space an open, airy quality when you drape sheer curtains over your window like a scarf. Not only will the sheer panels disguise plain or unattractive curtain rods, they will hang down to frame your window in an elegant display, decorating your window while still allowing light to shine through.
5. Use Sheers as Whimsical Room Dividers
Hang sheers from open doorways or from your ceiling to create whimsical room dividers. The gauzy fabric will clearly define spaces, while still allowing light to pass through so your room retains an open feeling. Sheer curtain dividers are a wonderful way to give your home a bohemian or romantic charm.
