Why Should I Consider Sheer Curtains?

curtains by RiansWhen it comes to choosing curtains for your home, there are many factors to consider. The use of the room, the amount of light you want to let in, who will be using the room and how they will match your existing décor all factor into the design equation. Rian’s Window Treatments have a variety of curtain designs in high quality fabrics for all your window and requirements, with none quite as diverse as the sheer curtain.

Sheers curtains or sheers for short; are a light weight, translucent fabric that can be hung directly over the window or underneath a heavier curtain or drape. Some of the benefits of sheer curtains include:

  • Privacy
  • UV Protection
  • Elegant Décor
  • Economical Choice


Sheers let the light in but keep prying eyes out. The biggest benefit of sheer curtains is the privacy they offer whilst letting natural light into your home, making them excellent for darker rooms. They allow you to see what’s going on outside of your window but prohibit anyone from seeing inside.

UV Protection

The weaving of the sheer fabric allows the sun’s rays to enter the room but filters it to protect your carpet and furniture. When placed beneath a drape or heavier curtain, it acts as a protective layer, keeping damaging sunlight from fading your curtain or drape material. It also acts to protect house plants from harsh heat but allowing them enough sunlight to grow.

Elegant Décor

Sheers are simple and sophisticated and give a delicate look to any room. Perfect for bedrooms, living rooms and family rooms, the sheer curtain is the epitome of soft and breezy whilst being functional and practical.

Economical Choice

When it comes to cost, sheers are by far the most economical choice. The lightweight fabric made from polyester or poly/cotton blends is inexpensive and versatile, which translates to a more cost effective option for any window treatment buyer.
