Three Cheers for Sheers!

If I were to associate a specific window treatment to summertime, I would definitely choose sheers.  You can easily imagine light, airy sheer curtains blowing gently in the breeze, casting a soft ambiance over the room as the sun filters in.  Paradise!

They are so versatile – able to be played up to suit any style.  Traditionally, we see crisp white and off-white sheer panels, offering a clean and simple touch.  Perfect for a cottage or beach house.  But a recent trend we are seeing more of are statement metallics and statement textures in deep earthtones.

We recently installed some of these shades at Jay Peak the Burlington Marriott!

You can either get functioning or non-functioning sheer curtains, the latter of which offers a gentle accent.  If you opt for functional sheers, keep in mind that whites and lighter colors reflect the sunlight to increase privacy, and darker colors tend to be more transparent.

Sheer panels also absorb sound – so not only are they soothing in appearance, they buffer sound to take your relaxation to a new level!

They work on windows, as bed canopies, on patios.  The can be criss-crossed, overlapped, combined with drapes, just endless possibilities.  They are so easy to style!

Moving on from panels, we also have sheer Roman shades and sheer blinds!  These are more recent than sheer curtains, and offer the privacy of a blind, the elegance of a sheer, and everything in between.

Sheer roman shades are the perfect combination of privacy and soft views.

They allow you to control light levels and privacy, and help soften the look of your home.  You can choose sheers with light-filtering or room-darkening options.  These are a great solution to the drape-and-sheer style, without the bulk.

With fabrics as airy and soft as breeze, sheers are definitely a go-to for summer style.  Stop in and find the perfect sheer solution for your home!
