Window Blinds With Sheer Curtains

How do Window Blinds with Sheer Curtains Work?


Window treatments are one of the most powerful fashion tools in a home. Most window treatments block sunlight and give you privacy from the prying eyes outside your home. But the magic of curtains lies in their visual appeal. They add a soft elegance to any shape of window or door. They ensure your eyes are drawn upward so that a room’s bottom heaviness is given a miss. They can dramatically arrange any room’s furniture or layout by shifting the focus onto themselves. And to top it all the most pronounced effect is the sophistication and elegance that a curtain brings to a room by adding the finishing touches.

Do you put curtains over blinds? Sheer curtains are an answer to any room’s decor. Sheer curtains are dizzying affordable, extraordinarily versatile and a foolproof option that you can absolutely not go wrong with. They come in an astounding array of colors, patterns, and materials.


How do sheer curtains work?


A barely existent fabric allows plenty of light to brighten up any nook of a room. The thin material of a sheer curtain ensures it does not add volume to a room but silently beautifies a space. And most important of all sheer curtains do not take away the attention in any room from the decor elements. They softly frame a naked window while lending a ‘finished’ look to a room.

Often hung as secondary treatments, sheer curtains bring lightness to any window with their sheer airy fabrics. They are usually tabbed top design but can be customized to any certain style. Choose from the following styles to enhance your living space;


  • Box Pleated – Deep folds at the top of the curtains give you a tailored look and drape

  • Rod Pocket – A simple heading for lighter fabrics like nets and voile provides you a formal look

  • Pinch Pleated – A heavy formal look with more pleats this style works well with any fabric. Choose from five types of pinch pleating for the right size and fullness of the pleats – one finger pinch pleats, two finger pinch pleats, three finger pinch pleats, four finger pinch pleats, and five finger pinch pleats

  • Eyelet – A simple eyelet at the top makes this style easy going and ideal for high footfall areas like the kid’s room or the dining area

  • Tailored peat – This style has the pleats starting from the top of the fabric and going all the way down making it visually very dramatic. Ideal and best achieved with heavy fabric

  • Goblet pleat – The pleat at the top is made to resemble a wine glass and is achieved with interlining or wadding. Best achieved with heavy fabric
