If you’ve been watching The Block this season you would have noticed that most of the contestants are using delicate sheer curtains in their rooms. Having a room with multiple windows is an asset to any space as they allow natural light to stream in, however multiple windows also makes privacy a challenge. That’s where the use of sheer curtains can help.
Sheers are made from a transparent material, some more transparent than others. Choosing the right transparency and fabric type will depend on your individual style and how much privacy you require.
For a really transparent, chic look that allows maximum light to stream in, look towards a Polyester / cotton fabric, this will give you a similar result to Jess and Norm’s main bedroom from The Block – Season 14.
Jess and Norm have opted for a pinch pleat header giving the curtains tight, even, pencil width pleats. This style of curtain header attaches to a curtain rod or track via hidden drapery hooks. In the case of Jess and Norm they have opted for a hidden track system behind a pelmet / recess.
Pinch pleat headers are a popular choice when using sheer curtains. This style of curtain header is also very practical as it can be used on both a curtain rod or track system – depending on your budget and the look you are after.
