Café curtains are usually distinguished with eyelets as the method of hanging. They are often light and breezy curtains that cover the lower half of the window and are perfect for the dining room where you might want to let in the light while still giving yourself some privacy. It is not uncommon to use fabric such as gingham or lace for these types of curtains.  In fact, eyelet lace curtains make a friendly and inviting statement for many parts of the home such as the kitchen, laundry and day room.

Because eyelet curtains are often dainty and light they are perfectly suited for a little girl’s room or a baby's nursery. In a baby nursery, basinets can be skirted with ivory eyelet and matched to the eyelet curtains on the window.

There is another room in which it is a common sight to see eyelet curtains and that is a powder room or bathroom because they let a little sunshine in while still providing enough privacy and the eyelets. The curtain eyelet holes also make the curtains more breathable which is a good aspect for a curtain which is hung in a moist and steamy bathroom. If the window is opened just a crack after a shower the curtains will dry and not retain the moisture like heavier curtains would.
