What are café sheers?
Café sheers are a type of curtain that only covers the bottom half of windows up to the window sills. This allows a lot of natural light through while still providing you with a lot of privacy.
Café sheers often come paired with a matching set of window valances to cover the top portion of the window. These tiered curtains allow you to have a small opening in the middle of the window for even more privacy.
Where can I hang café sheers?
Since café sheers end at the window sill, they are ideal for rooms that don’t have a lot of floor space. Café sheers are typically used in kitchens since these areas usually don’t have enough room for regular curtains with all the counter space and furnishings that are in the way. Café sheers can also brighten up bathrooms while keeping you safe from prying eyes. They can also be placed in reading nooks and behind sofas in the living room.
How do you hang café sheers?
Café sheers are typically installed inside the window frame itself using only tension rods. This means you won’t have to do any drilling or hammering. Since café sheers are usually very lightweight, it doesn’t require a lot of support from curtain rods or valance rods. You can also use regular curtain rods with curtain sheers as long as they don’t look too large or heavy since café sheers are usually placed at eye level.
What are café sheers made of?
Café sheers are made out of lightweight sheer fabric that is able to let a lot of light through even when they are not pulled back. Our café sheers are typically made out of polyester which makes them more durable despite being lightweight and delicate, and also makes them more resistant to mildew when hung in humid environments like kitchens and bathrooms.
