Sheer curtains have been covering windows for centuries. The word Sheer is a simple word that has so many meanings! Sheer curtains, also be referred to as custom drapes or draperies, can add a beautiful soft, translucent look to help protect furnishings from the sun, offer moderate privacy, and can soften the look of any room. They can even be lined and still provide a light, sheer look! Either way, custom sheer curtains or draperies give a room setting an airy, light and aethereal feel.
Almost any curtain or custom drapery treatment can be made using a sheer fabric. Many fabric patterns and colors are available in sheer or semi-sheer fabric. Sheer curtain fabrics make the most of a beautiful sunlit room year-round. Privacy can be achieved with different levels of sheer opacities or a fabric liner. Fabric liners allow light in during every season or block it out entirely for a room darkening effect.
Color and design can play an interesting part. In addition, the length of sheer curtains or drapes play are important in creating height drama and warmth in a space. Neutral colors such as classic bright white, off white, ivory and other neutrals work well in so many home décors. While grays, beiges and more colorful sheers are trendy and bold colors create a more modern look in many different room settings.
Sheer Curtain or Drapery Styles To Complete Your Design
Sheers don’t have to live alone! There are different styles of fabric curtain and window draperies that work well with sheers. Thick or opaque layers can add excellent insulation features and drama and can dress up a window at the same time. Adding lighter fabrics and draperies over sheers can create a more subtle elegance.
How and where the curtains and drapes are installed on windows as well as the style being selected will have a big impact on the finished window treatment look.
The following custom drapes continue to be popular in homes across Middlesex County and Greater Boston.

Window sheers dress up your space and go beyond just softening the hot sun
Window curtain sheers can easily refresh a room setting for everyday living or special parties and holiday gatherings. Gorgeous styles are available in silk, faux silk, linen, cotton, and more. Light filtering fabrics can be ideal for living rooms, bedrooms, or great rooms, depending on the location, size, and height of windows. Whether solid fabric colors or embroidered prints in florals are selected, a truly unique look can be created and become a beautiful focal point in any room.
Traditional curtains or modern drapery combine well with custom blinds and shades, wooden blinds, and shutters. Add curtains or draperies over natural woven blinds or shades, or designer screen shades for a fully dressed and layered window treatment. Adding a sheer curtain over a blind or shade allows for an easy update over existing window coverings. For example, with shutters or roman shades, curtains or drapes can be added over them and still be separately operated. Curtains over blinds for privacy or stand-alone drapery side panels can change the focus of a room setting with the touch of a hand.
