Also known as sheer curtains, they are made from translucent fabric too allow a lot of light into a room and also a basic level of UV protection while also maintaining maximum visibility through the curtains.
Make sure that the curtains you buy for your home complement all the other elements of your home which have been used for interior decoration purposes. If your curtains go well with the walls and furniture of your home then your home will surely exude an irresistible charm. It is also important that you consider curtains made up of which fabric you intend to buy. Heavy fabrics curtains are more effective when it comes to blocking the light which comes from outside and light fabrics curtains are richer aesthetically.

If your window requires more privacy during the day time from peering eyes, consider using sheer or net curtains, along with opaque curtains for night privacy.
