It’s still all about sheers and why wouldn’t it be…..sheer curtains continue to be one of the most popular window furnishing options for new homes and renovated homes throughout Newcastle & the Hunter Region.

Did you know that sheers can be teamed with a thermal blockout layer? The sheer and the blockout are installed on independent tracks, allowing you to move the thermal blockout layer out of the way to allow natural light to stream in through the sheers.

Sheers work beautifully for all size openings and work particularly well for large windows, sliding or bi-fold opening doors. They are very popular for living rooms and bedrooms due to their visual appeal….sheers look modern, but they also add an element of texture to a room. Our curtains are installed with clear rods to slide the sheers across the track….this makes them easy to operate and there’s no messy cords.

Todays colour trends continue to include neutrals, soft light silver greys, charcoal tones and warmer tones. Earthy hues are also very popular right now.

Sheer Curtain Fabric Choices 

There are a large range of fabrics to choose from depending on the look you are after and your budget.  Linen look fabrics in neutral tones, silver greys and dark charcoal tones continue to be the current favorites. There are many different textures, colours and patterns to choose from to suit your home.

If you have a roller blind or plantation shutter on your existing window, you could change the look and dress the room with a lovely soft sheer curtain. For newly built homes, the current trend is to team a soft flowing sheer curtain with a thermal lining.

Energy Efficient Curtain Linings

Our curtain linings are energy efficient….they will keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter. On those hot summer days you will notice a big difference if you draw a blockout curtain across to keep heat out of a room.  Although our winters are quite mild in the Hunter region, thermal linings definitely make a difference on those chilly days and nights…..keeping the cold out and the warmth in. Windows can have a big impact on the heating and cooling efficiency of your home – up to 40% of the heat inside a home during winter can be lost through window glazing. During summer, up to 87% of the heat in your home is transferred through your window glazing. Take a look at the Your Home website if you are interested in finding out more about window glazing and energy efficiency.
