Light curtain fabric is flowing, soft to touch and eye catching. They complete the overall style of your home.  The advantages of choosing light curtain fabrics are:

  • Allowing light in
  • Maintenance

Light allowance

Light curtains are popular because they allow light to enter the room and help create a softer atmosphere.

Light curtain fabrics can be lined with other similar light fabrics to reduce the amount of light entering your room – perfect if you don’t like too much light on certain occasions. Lined curtains will have better thermal properties especially in winter. Light fabric curtains can be teamed with a blind to keep that gorgeous flowing effect of the curtain and then pull the blind down in winter to keep the warm air in. Use the blind in summer to stop the hot air entering your room and enjoy the sea breeze playing in your curtains in the evening.


They are very easy to wipe clean. If further cleaning is required, they can be easily taken down and washed. Light curtains will dry quickly on your washing line and then you can rehang them.

Flow and drape
