FAQs

What are voile curtains?

Voile curtains are delicate window coverings made from lightweight, translucent fabrics such as cotton, polyester or silk. This allows natural light to filter through your windows while maintaining a level of privacy.

Ready made voile curtains are characterised by their ethereal appearance and soft, flowing drape. They are often used as an additional layer of window dressing alongside heavier curtains or blinds, creating a layered look. Voiles can also be used on their own to achieve a light and airy aesthetic.

 

What are the benefits of voiles?

One of the key benefits of voile curtains is their ability to diffuse sunlight, creating a soft and gentle glow within the room. They help to reduce glare and harsh shadows, making them ideal for spaces where you want to create an inviting atmosphere. Additionally, voile curtains provide a level of privacy by obscuring the view from outside while still allowing you to enjoy the outside scenery. Due to this, voile panels are particularly popular in areas where a light and airy feel is desired, such as living rooms, bedrooms, or dining areas.

 

What’s the difference between a net curtain and a voile panel?

Net curtains are typically made from coarse, lightweight materials with an open weave pattern. The fabric used for net curtains is often synthetic, such as polyester or nylon, which gives them a combination of durability and affordability. Net curtains are known for their fine mesh-like construction, featuring small holes or eyelets that allow some light to pass through while still providing a level of privacy.

On the other hand, voile panels are made from softer and more delicate fabrics, such as cotton, polyester or silk. Voile curtain panels have a finer and more translucent texture compared to net curtains, allowing a significant amount of natural light to filter through.

 

Can you see through voile curtains at night?

Ready made voile curtains, due to their sheer and translucent nature, do not provide complete privacy at night when the lights are on inside the room. During nighttime, when the interior lights are on and the exterior is relatively dark, voile curtains may allow silhouettes or shadows to be visible from outside. This means that people passing by might be able to see general shapes or movements inside the room. However, the specific level of visibility can vary depending on factors such as the thickness of the voile fabric and the distance between the curtain and the window.
