You can’t go wrong with Sheers. There’s something about the flowy,
slightly see through material in front of a bright window that just brings
peace and calm into a room. Because they are such a pleasant window treatment,
the options are endless of how many, what kind, and where they can be used. Of
course, the common place is unsurprisingly dangling in front of a window.
However, consider these next five creative options when sprucing up your home,
bringing a whole new feel to the room.
1. Extended Sheers
Picture a double set of glass doors, each with a typical rod
across the top and sheers hanging down in front. Now, wipe that picture away
and instead, picture sheers cascading from the top of wall where the ceiling is
met, not only covering the doors, but covering the entire wall. These extra
long sheers create a whole new ambiance as light peeks through the fabric. They
can also be bunched to the side, creating a beautiful tapestry effect on that
entire side of the room.
2. Divide A Room
Keep those extra long sheers in mind, but picture a large
room full of windows. Instead of using the sheers to cover the windows, you can
create separation in the room by hanging them from the ceiling to divide the
room into smaller portions while still keeping the spacious, airy feel from the
light fabric. Light is uninhibited, while allowing a sense of separation and
focus change for each “room”.
3. Surround The Bed
We’ve all seen the beds with the thick fabric falling down
from the top of the frame -- in fact, when you were a kid you probably day
dreamed about these beds, wishing you could have this easy fort! But consider
instead of using the “bed curtains”, use sheers! This brings a romantic,
sensual and soft feel to the bedroom without burying yourself in darkness and
separation. Maybe you match the bed sheers with the window sheers in the room -
a light uniform look that again, seems to create the feel of space instead of
diminish space. In the same way, if you’re someone who loves those stand alone
tubs, use a long window sheer to surround the tub creating faux privacy, yet a
cozy feel whether night or day.
4. Create a Headboard
Maybe you don’t want the bed surrounded by fabric of any
kind, but like the idea of incorporating the feel and ambiance of a sheer to
the bedroom. You can replace your headboard with sheers! This is a fun,
creative option where you can easily change the look of your headboard at any
time. You could let a light colored or patterned sheer simply hang from the
ceiling. You could tie ribbons around multiple sheers creating a wall of
bunched sheer fabric from top to bottom. You could even use two sheers and
bunch them off to the side, a window effect, creating a beautiful drapery over
your bed. Perhaps you even want to create a canopy above the bed, which
attaches to the headboard. There are so many simple, beautiful options.
5. Block From UV Rays
Did you know there are Sheer Solar Shades? Moving from the
flowy material to a Solar Shade, you can choose a sheer like
fabric that allows light and breeze, while protecting you and your furniture
from the sun. This is great in a patio, a window covered office, or even a
kitchen. Just because the room is a prime place for the sun to pelt down into,
doesn’t mean you have to compromise the condition of your home and miss out on
that beautiful light!
