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.
