Voile curtain specifications
Voile curtains are characterised by the soft sheer fabric of which this type of material is commonly composed. Voile drapes are often created using a cotton material and can be easily hung on a curtain rail or rod. This type of curtain is commonly found in hot countries where the use of a fully lined curtain may be too thick and unsuitable for the climate. However, they are also a very popular addition to windows in the UK and can be found teamed with an unlined curtain or used instead of a window blind. The difference between voile curtains and their net curtain counterparts is that voiles can often be available in a range of colours and patterns thus allowing them to subtly blend into the existing décor of a room. Net curtains on the other hand are often only available in a white or cream shade making them stand out at the window.
Benefits of voile curtains
Due to the sheer quality of the voile material, this curtain will allow natural light to flood your room whilst still maintaining a level of privacy within the home. This type of curtain is perfect for those long summer months when the sun will be shining for many hours during the day thus flooding your room with a beautiful boost of natural sunlight.
If a certain room in the house is slighty overlooked by neighbours or is perhaps directly on the street you may crave a touch of privacy. However, this will often lead to using a blind or closing the curtains during the day thus creating a dark and dingy feel to your room. This is where a lovely voile curtain can become the ideal addition to your window. The sheer fabric will allow a beautiful amount of sunlight to flood your room whilst protecting your level of privacy in the home from any on-lookers.
