Some Ideas of Sheer Window Treatment

in Windows


Sheer can be a good alternative for window treatment since it can add a decorative element to your window. Sheer is commonly made of fabric. It will be the right window treatment option for those who need more light in the room. Yet, it does not fit for those who need absolute privacy. Wanting to make sheer window treatment, you can simply use sheer fabric and simple curtain rod.

Firstly, you have to measure the width and the length of the window to determine the size of fabric you will need. For the draping, you can add the measurement for width and length and then multiply it three times. Sheer window draping needs more fabric than conservative panels. It needs a curtain rod. If you don't have any, you have to buy one for it. The rod should be able to complement the design and look of your home. If you have already had window treatment, you can drape the fabric at the end of the existing rod. Instead, you can purchase new rod for the draping.

Furthermore, before hanging the window fabric, you have to make sure that it is free from wrinkles. If any, you can iron it. Then, you can hang it. There are two techniques which are suitable for window draping. The first technique is using the draping fabric which is wrapped twice around the curtain rod. Make sure that the fabric draping down has equal length with the window. This method is known as the symmetrical method. It is the most popular fabric draping method today.

In the second technique, the draping fabric is commonly bunched at each corner of the curtain rod with clear wire, hair tie, and a rubber band. The middle of draping bows with side panel which can be unequal and equal length. Compared to the first method, this is more creative and can bring more visual interest to the room.
