Can I purchase café curtains at Spotlight?
Yes, you can. Our convenient café curtains are ideal for windows where you want to let light in without sacrificing your privacy. They come in sets of two including a short top curtain and a longer bottom curtain, which can be gathered onto curtain wire or slim curtain rods.
What exactly is a café curtain?
The term “cafe curtain” may not mean much to you if you aren’t in the design or decorating business. But once you see an image you will realise that they are quite familiar to most of us.
A café curtain is a curtain that is hung only partway up the window – the way many old roadside cafes used to cover their windows. Some have a matching shorter curtain, more like a valance, to decorate the top of the window. Cafe curtains are made of fabric that can be sheer or semi-opaque, and they can be lined or unlined. Often, they are made as a rod pocket panel, which is installed with a tension curtain rod.
Where can I use café curtains in the house?
Although people often immediately think of café curtains for the kitchen, these short-tier curtains that cover the bottom half of windows are perfect for more than just the kitchen. Some areas that are ideal for café curtains are bathrooms, the study, nursery, hallway or landings. Cafe curtains perfectly balance the need for privacy and light, letting plenty of light in while keeping inquisitive eyes out. And the best part? You can get them up quickly with little effort, simply by screwing two small eyelets into the sides of the window frame for a curtain wire, or if you do not want to make holes, by using a tension rod.
What if my windows are wider or narrower than the sizes shown?
You can simply trim a café curtain at home to fit a narrower window, and for wider windows, buying an extra set means you can simply gather more curtains onto the rod or curtain wire to cover greater distances.
Does Spotlight sell other window dressings too?
