Sheer Magic for Summer Windows
Let in the light with elegant voiles and sheers
Add a touch of privacy to a window – without blocking out light – with a sheer curtain or blind. Ideal for rooms that aren’t too overlooked in both modern and traditional homes, voiles come in a wide choice of designs, so there really is something for every taste. You could go glamorous with a metallic shimmer, evoke country life with a delicate voile, or be bold with stripes. Read on for some of our favourite voile blinds and curtains.
Bring beauty to a window with a printed voile
Make a statement and filter light with a patterned sheer. With the trend for stripes still evident, a delicate print is the perfect way to update your window. Darley Linen is a stunning striped sheer with a blue, grey and white hue. Hung alone or alongside another blind, this sheer will add sophisticated pattern and subtle colour to your home, without blocking out the light.
Add a sheer with a shimmer
Ensure privacy and understated glamour with a voile that has a delicate shimmer. Team with co-ordinating luxe cushions for a cohesive look. Sheers soften daylight and provide privacy without creating dark corners – just beautifully dressed windows.
Connect to the garden with voile curtains
Choose a soft, light voile curtain for a doorway leading to the garden. With the popularity of bifold and French Doors this is an ideal way to incorporate window dressings into living areas without them being overpowering. and is a great way of bridging the gap between indoors and outdoors.
The perfect choice for Day and Night
Perfect for bedrooms, day and night blinds combine pleated sheers with blackout blinds for a day and night solution. Sheers allow daylight and shapes to filter through, whilst the blackout blind can be drawn to block out the light and provide total privacy during evening hours.
Soften the hard lines of a bathroom
Inevitably, bathrooms are all hard surfaces and clinical white finishes, but by using sheers at the window, you can soften the room’s look. Choose a design with a textured double layer for impact such as this gorgeous Enjoy Vision blind, and to add interest to what is often a neutral space. The pattern adds subtle texture for a softer, more relaxing bathroom. Less is often more when it comes to creating tranquil spaces.
Dress the bedroom
If you are looking for a fresh twist on a traditional design, these Illusion roller shades are a great choice. Two layers of sheer fabric sandwich soft, curvy louvres to make two blinds in one. Perfect for adding a soft look in your bedroom, allowing you to enjoy the view when the louvres are open, then providing privacy and darkness when closed, this Illusion Cool Grey shade lets you do it all.
