Soften sunlight with delicate draping.
Keep your space bright and airy with sheer curtains that float gently over windows or doors. The translucent fabric diffuses light to reduce glare and adds a touch of opulence to your décor without obstructing the view beyond. Plus, layer with blockout curtains, plantation shutters or roller blinds for complete light, temperature and privacy control.

Frequently asked questions
What are sheer curtains?
Sheer curtains are made from a gossamer-like fabric, which filters natural light softly for a gentle glow and provides privacy during the day.
Can you see through sheer curtains?
Yes. Sheer curtain fabrics are translucent, enabling light but not precise shapes to pass. That means you can see through them to a certain degree and enjoy the view, while maintaining an element of privacy from the outside world.
Do sheer curtains reduce heat?
As well as diffusing natural light and providing daytime privacy, sheer curtains offer an extra layer of insulation within your space – all while creating a beautifully soft ambience with their ethereal aesthetic.
Do sheer curtains provide privacy?
Sheer curtains can provide some privacy during the day, but are mainly favoured for their ability to diffuse light and their truly timeless style.
If you would like to enjoy total privacy, day or night, then we recommend pairing your sheers with a blockout curtain or roller blind.
Can you line sheer curtains?
Yes, certainly! By coupling your curtains with a liner in the same colour or slightly darker, you can enrich the shade of the sheer panel.
Should you buy black, grey, or white sheer curtains?
While white sheer curtains are a popular choice for their clean and classic style, grey and black alternatives can act as a dramatic design feature in bright spaces or a seamless addition to darker rooms.
At Heritage Blinds & Shutters, we offer window coverings in a variety of different shades to complement any décor’s colour palette.
How do you measure sheer curtains?
It’s important to measure your sheer curtains correctly the first time around. This style of curtain tends to work best when two to three times the width of the window or door it is covering. The extra material creates a beautiful fullness that flows flawlessly in the breeze.
A set of sheer curtains should also be wide enough to overlap slightly in the centre, while also covering the edges of your window or door. To achieve this, we recommend adding 30-40cm to your final measurement.
When it comes to length, you can choose between short or long curtains that touch the floor or pool generously for a luxurious effect. Simply let our team know your preference.
At Heritage Blinds & Shutters, our sheer curtain experts offer free measuring and fitting at your home to ensure the perfect fit. Book a consultation to get started.
How do I clean sheer curtains?
The best way to clean sheer curtains is to take down the fabric and hand wash it gently with a mixture of water and mild detergent. Leave to air dry until slightly damp before hanging the curtains again, as this will help to minimise creasing.
