Versatile Voile Curtains

When it comes to finding a curtain that is elegant and adaptable an option that provides style and grace while also allowing a certain level of natural light into the room is the voile curtain. Voile curtain panels can be used equally effectively as full length drapes, bed canopies or as replacements for net curtains.

Although they are light and breezy in weight and texture they aren’t restricted to a single color or style with types of voile curtains available in natural linen looking fabric and lighter sheers. The top of the voile curtains are just as versatile with the curtains able to be made with a stitched heading to allow it to be threaded onto the curtain rod or, if you prefer, made as tab topped curtains. The tab top voile curtains thread even easier onto a curtain rod.

Both of the tops mentioned above pull into uniform pleats to create a stylish look when they are pulled closed creating a textured background for the room in which they are hung.

One of the benefits in buying voile curtains is that they are nice and light and very suitable for hanging on tension curtain rods. Tension curtain rods are used when it is not possible to screw curtain rod brackets into the wall, but they require lightweight curtains to ensure they aren’t dragged down due to the weight. Because voile curtains are lightweight they fit the brief quite nicely. If they are made as slot top panels they will be able to be used as part of a layering effect.

The question of how many voile curtain panels you might need to effectively cover a window may come up and although it will depend on just how much privacy you might be looking to achieve, the idea is to use double the width of the window itself. This way the voiles can be allowed to overlap while covering the window creating a full look while still giving the required level of light a chance to filter in.

Buy Net Curtains For Casual Appeal

Window treatments are always a difficult part of decorating a room, largely because if they are done right you hope that they will be barely noticed. If they help other parts of the room stand out and they are creating the right balance of light and privacy then you know you have made the right choice.

One of the lighter screening types of curtains is net curtains. They are important because they provide you with a little bit of privacy yet they are sheer enough to allow some of that important light into a room. They are a casual type of curtain that will catch any breeze that happens to make its way into the room and will wave comfortably creating a relaxed mood.

Net curtains provide a few benefits when they are hung in front of the right windows. They are visually appealing bringing that quaint, prettiness to the room. They are able to be customised, ordering them to be made so that they match the rest of the room. They are also quite inexpensive making them a cheaper alternative to dress the windows.

Don’t think for a minute that net curtains are all the same because the truth is that there is a wide range of net curtains available with subtle textures and woven patterns in the netting allowing you a range to choose from. A set of lace net curtains should appeal to most tastes with the intricate designs a feature that adds much needed texture to a part of the room where such things are sometimes lacking.

The following is a part of the range of sheer and net curtains that are available to buy at Amazon. They represent a range of designs and styles.

Here are just a few of the better known patterns that you can get when you buy net curtains. The embroidered net curtains are always popular with the patterns made with either simple understatement or bold showiness. You may also get jardinières, voile panels, café curtains and window sets each of them in a net curtain that will look lovely.

In general you will have to hang your net curtains using the traditional stitched seam pocket that has been threaded onto a curtain rod. However there are a growing number of net curtains that have been made as eyelet curtains making them even easier to hang than they already are.

Voile Curtains Create A Relaxed Mood

In the past the main function of curtains was to provide privacy from the outside and for this reason it was usual to see heavy curtains or drapes that made the room completely dark when they were drawn. These days the privacy issue has not been as urgent and there has been a move towards searching for ways of allowing the light in while also managing to maintain a certain level or privacy. While serving both of these functions it is also desirable to use a curtain fabric that was an attractive addition to the room. The answer is to use curtains made of voile.

The term voile is derived from the French word veil. Voile is made of woven cotton or blended with other materials such as nylon. Voile curtains are very light weight and pretty when they are hung in front of open windows. The breeze through an open window catches the voile and it flutters in the air daintily. Because sheer voile curtains are so moveable and airy voile tab top curtains can be hung for more curtain flexibility. Voile curtains can be given a more elegant and structured look for a more formal space if the voile panel curtains are hung by the curtain pocket from a pole and a matching voile scarf is draped over the top of the pole to finish the look.

Because voile is semi transparent, a good place to hang voile curtains is in a room which gets a lot of sunlight. The voile curtains dress the windows but do not obstruct the sunlight. Because of their semi transparent nature the beauty of voile fabrics is intensified when the light shines through them. Voile curtains can be pulled back using curtain pulls on the sides of the windows and as the fabric gathers it becomes more opaque.

Voile fabrics are used in countries with a warmer climate because the material is so light and they are also used as mosquito netting to block out bugs without insulating a resting person. In the form of mosquito netting, voile fabric usually remains white. However there's much more on offer than simply white voile curtains.

When voile fabrics are used for curtains they can be dyed with any color. Voile curtains are sold in many different colors and they look beautiful in a color which matches the walls. Because the voile curtains are not solid and opaque they do not blend in with the color of the wall. The light shining through the curtains brightens the color of the fabric in some areas and when pleats and gathers form, the color becomes more opaque and concentrated. The look of voile curtains is never consistent as the light moves through them as they move with the breeze.

It’s the movement of voile curtains that can really add a relaxed atmosphere to the home. A lazily fluttering set of curtains in front of a bright kitchen window makes a soft impression that encourages you to sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

There are many different circumstances in which voile curtains are appropriate and can either be used alone as the principal window dressing or in concert with drapes or curtains made of a heavier fabric.

By hanging voile curtains over and around your bed you should be able to create some very attractive looking mosquito netting. This can be made to look even more appropriate for the room if they are hung from a wrought iron frame that has been attached to the ceiling. You might even like to hang colored voile curtains to create a feature of your colored mosquito netting curtains that surround the bed giving it a more ethereal quality.
