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.
