Sheer curtains and valences can add that much needed vibrancy to your home. Light weight and easy to hang, these curtains and valences can be used for decorating more than just the windows. Check out these 5 areas in the home that would get a beautiful, dreamy quality with these sheer curtains.



Not many of us use curtains for doorways. However, if you happen to live in a country like India, you would probably understand the need to keep the door front door open during the day in the summer season. Hang up some sheer curtains at the doorway to enjoy the breeze and still have privacy.

You can also replace the doors between rooms with sheer curtains that would make the house look more open and inviting. For instance, you can replace the door connecting the dining room and the kitchen with a sheer curtain or valence. You can also use these curtains as dividers between rooms without opting for steadfast barriers like doors. For instance, a single large hall can be transformed into a living room, dining room and bedroom by hanging these sheer curtains at strategic places, thus minimizing the need of doorways.

Bed Canopies

Nothing is dreamier than sleeping in a bed with sheer curtains all around you. You can either hang them straight from the ceiling or attach them to the metal posts at the top of the four post bed frame. A homemade canopy made with a color like red can turn an otherwise dull looking bedroom into a romantic space instantly.
