What is Voile?
Voile is a French word, pronounced “vwahl”. The definition; a light, plain-weave, sheer fabric of cotton, rayon, silk, or wool used especially for making dresses and curtains. Sheer draperies may be used alone, or layer for a more luxurious look.
Voile curtains give the feeling of a bright and spacious interior. Plus, they are easy to incorporate in any room of the home. These 100% polyester sheers are perfect for layering behind a pair of decorative curtains to block out light in the evening while also maintaining your privacy.
Patterned voile draperies are a fantastic way to create a point of focus that draws your eye. Voile fabrics come in a variety of styles and interesting patterns. This is an easy and inexpensive way to add pattern and color to a room.
Opt for Understated
The opposite of adding voile curtains to attract attention; you can also layer voile curtains to create an understated finish without having to purchase multiple sets of new curtains – an affordable option if your curtains are made-to-measure.
Layering with Shades
If you have roman shades or blinds on your windows, using sheers as your draperies will soften the look while adding a layer of texture. Using Roman shades or blinds will provide the privacy you need while the sheers can help diffuse the light.
Whether you’re looking to add privacy to your home, create a focal point in a room, or reduce the vibrancy of your patterned or colorful drapes, voile drapes are an excellent, versatile choice. Layering can be done in stages, as your budget allows.
