Sheer Curtains Melbourne

No matter the age of your home, sheer linen curtains provide a beautiful touch of softness and a chic appeal. In a range of classic whites, pleats and linen fabrics, sheers allow you to let light into the home, while keeping it private.

Melbourne is loving sheer linen curtains (either real linen or a composition) in combination with blockout roller blinds for an elegant but cost-effective addition to any room.

We offer a huge range of fabric sample hangers in our showroom and can bring these hangers with us to consultation for your convenience. Our showroom has full size curtain and drape displays to also assist in the decision-making process.

We offer a wide range of heading and curtain track styles including:

  • Pencil pleat curtains.
  • Pinch pleat curtains.
  • S-fold curtains (also known as wave).
  • Gather tape curtains.
  • Eyelet curtains.
  • Inverted pleat/ Box Pleat Curtains.

Not sure which heading style suits you best? Read our blog post about Curtains help you decide.

Common questions about Sheer Curtains

What is the correct length for curtains?

This is completely up to you! The most common selections are approx. 10mm off the floor, skimming the floor or puddling on the floor.

What are the best curtain heading styles for sheer linen curtains?

The most popular heading styles for sheer curtains are S fold, wave fold, pencil pleat, maxi gather and inverted pleat.

What happens if I pick 100% linen sheer curtains?

We love linen and use it every day. However it is important to understand how linen behaves. It is a natural fibre and will move over time. We suggest puddling your curtains by 1-2cm so you don’t notice this movement.

How much fullness should be in a sheer curtains?

The standard fullness for a sheer curtain is 250% for most heading styles and 220% for an S fold heading. You can increase or reduce this fullness depending in the fabric selection, aesthetic preference and budget. For example a very fine organza sheer may be increased to 300% fullness and a more dense linen curtain down to 200%.

How are sheer curtains installed?

Sheer linen curtains can be installed face fit onto the wall or top fix into the ceiling. They can be installed on standard styeline tracks which are designed to never be noticed or on decorative rods/ tracks to make a feature of them.

How can I clean my sheer linen curtains?

We suggest having a professional come and clean them while installed or consult an expert drycleaner who specialises in curtains. Make sure you make the cleaner aware of the fabric composition so they can give you the best advice (and discuss the possibility of shrinkage).
