Sheer Curtains

Sheer Curtains, most commonly known as sheers, are a lightweight fabric used to dress a window. This type of curtain was actually used first in Ancient Egypt, as a way of insulation. Natural fibres, such as linen were used to keep the intense heat out of a room. Another type of sheer made its first appearance in the 18th Century, when the development of mass textile producing machinery came along. The first sheers were made of lace, and they were mainly used in households because they were good at keeping dust out, and were also very easy to wash and maintain.

Sheers offer a layer of privacy from the outside of a space, and are perfect for combining with other heavier fabrics in a layered window treatment. This type of curtain can also soften the light that comes into a space, while styling a room at the same time. An important quality about sheers, that is many times overlooked, is that they offer protection against sun damage. Frequent exposure to direct sunlight can be very damaging to the valuable items or furniture we usually have in our home; such as rugs, tapestry, art, especially paintings and other similar items. Sheers are a great way to protect such items from direct sunlight.

Sheers are also a great way to filter the light, without completely shutting out daylight, and can be a great way to express personality, and show personal style and taste in a room. Today, sheers come in a large variety of textiles and colours. The most popular sheer fabrics can be woven from natural fibres, as well as from synthetic ones, very often a combination of both in different proportions. Some of the most popular fabrics used today include Voile, Organza, Chiffon, lace, linen and others.

Voile is a sheer fabric that is made of cotton with linen and polyester, these textiles woven together create a stronger, more resistant fabric with a higher thread count.

Linen is a natural fabric, dating back to more than thirty thousand years ago, derived from the fibres of the flax plant, it is much stronger than cotton but has a very similar breathability to it, and it is also very light weight. It is excellent for providing insulation against heat, it is absorbent, but it has a tendency to wrinkle.

Organza is a sheer fabric, mainly produced by China as well as India. Even though Organza is traditionally made from silk, there are many varieties of this fabric that include synthetic fibres such as Nylon and Polyester, which make them much more accessible to every household.

We had Vince and Steven install our blind for the deck and they were exceptional. We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. They were very helpful, friendly and great with our dogs as well!

Highly recommended- Jason and his team did a great job on a very large motorised Ziptrack blind. Best thing is Jason thought more about the install placement and features than others which maximised my space.
