Toronto & Oakville’s Go-To for Sheer Curtains
Sheer curtains, also referred to as window sheers, are one of the most elegant pieces of fabric you can put in your home. While window sheers are commonly thought of as warm-weather curtains, fit to hang up in the doorway of a beach home, they’re useful all year round and in any kind of home. Shades of Home has been helping homeowners in Toronto, Etobicoke, Mississauga, Oakville & Burlington find the perfect window sheers for their homes for over 35 years.

Just a few examples of our installations.
What’s the Purpose of Window Sheers?
Sheers and curtains are very light, delicate fabrics that hang as decoration while letting through plentiful amounts of light. They’re made from low-density knits like nylon, linen, or even silk, often with very fine thread; in order to achieve a beautiful translucent, gauzy effect. That means that sheer curtains are very light, and that they let in most natural light These curtains have the advantage of shielding a window from view and presenting a beautiful curtain instead, all while letting in copious amounts of natural light. All of these traits combine make window sheers perfect for Your Home with beautiful natural light.
It’s difficult to find a more eye-pleasing decoration than a sheer window treatment. Window sheers drift and move with the breeze, making you feel as if your living room is really outside in the lawn. Except with sheer curtains up, the bugs and heat stays outside, and the refreshing breeze wafts right through.
When decorating doors, many don’t consider sheer curtains as an option. Yet due to their extreme light weight, custom sheer curtains are an excellent alternative to a regular door. While other curtains get in the way and hide a door from view, sheer curtains can act as a screen door of sorts — except beautiful and indoors. Anyone can walk straight through sheers and curtains, or just brush them aside.
Few other types of window dressing can let in so much sunlight while still in position over a window. While the sheer curtain is in place over the window, it allows in wonderful amounts of natural light. If you’re lucky enough to have a home in Toronto, Etobicoke, North York, Mississauga, Oakville or Burlington that fills with natural light, sheer window treatments could be the perfect fit.
While it does let in plenty of natural light into any given room, a sheer window treatment keeps out excess UV light. UV rays are proven to cause skin cancer, and windows don’t filter out UV rays, which are a dangerous wavelength for human skin. But a sheer curtain can provide an additional layer between skin and sun — and one extra layer can make all the difference.
Due to the unique properties of the fabric in curtains and sheers, these curtains do something that almost no other kind of window treatment can. With most kinds of curtains, you either have to look straight through a window or at a blank curtain. But since sheer window treatments are translucent, you can look out through them, but no one outside can look in to the privacy of your home. The unique privacy capability of sheer curtains are one of a kind, which many homeowners appreciate having in their home.
