Wall to wall sheers
If you have a large window or glass doors, extend your sheer curtains beyond the frame to the edges of the room for a dramatic yet not overbearing feature. It visually expands the room and softens a boxy layout’s hard edges.
Create room dividers
A great idea in either a really big or really tiny space. Hang sheers from the ceiling to zone off areas without breaking up the space with hard walls. For example, create a dressing zone in a bedroom with no wardrobe, divide off a messy crafting or sewing area (or kids play space) in the main living, or make a blissful sleep-only area around your bed.
Tips for optimising your space using curtains
- Hang them high on the wall, right up near the ceiling, and right down to the ground. This draws the eye upwards creating an illusion of height.
- Choose a fabric in a slightly lighter shade of the wall colour to open up a small room; use darker coloured curtains to make a larger space cosier.
