What are sheer curtains?

Sheer curtains are light and breezy window treatments. They make great use of natural light for your room with the translucent nature of its fabric. Sheer curtains are available in different colours, patterns, prints and textures. Sheers are more about style and ambience than privacy, which is exactly why sheer curtains are often paired with a block-out blind or lined curtain. They are generally easy to clean – dust can be shaken out of them or, depending on the fabric, they can be washed with mild detergent. Sheer curtains are extremely versatile, making them a favourable choice of window furnishing.

Advantages of curtains

Managing the amount of light that enters your home is simple and straightforward with curtains. The fabric and texture of the curtains play important roles in how effectively they can control natural light. Curtains are also helpful in blocking out glaring or bright lights from the outdoors, protecting your TV or computer screens from glare. With block-out curtains you can create a calm, restful environment that can help you relax

Some curtains can absorb sound energy and vibrations much better than glass, wood and metal can. Some fabrics are denser than others, making them even better at sound insulation. Heavy curtains can help prevent noise pollution and dust from entering your home. Curtains do gather dust particles when your windows are open and it may be necessary to have them dry cleaned, vacuumed or washed regularly (depending on the fabric and curtain type).

Curtains are one of the most effective ways to manage and maintain privacy. For rooms such as the bedroom and living room, your privacy is of utmost importance. Curtains can create a beautiful ambience inside while protecting your privacy. When motorising your curtains, you have the added benefit of being able to control when they open and close in your absence too, creating the impression that your home is always occupied.

Window treatments such as curtains perform well in limiting the amount of sunlight that enters your home. This contributes to keeping your indoors cool. Cooler interiors protect your furniture, flooring, paintings, photographs and frames from sun damage too. During winter, your curtains can help retain the warmth generated indoors, saving you energy costs in the long term.

It should go without saying how versatile a choice like curtains are for home and office interiors. They come in a diverse selection of colours, fabrics, prints, patterns and designs. You can easily achieve a one-of-a-kind look for each room, if you wish. Choose layered curtains for added depth or keep it elegant and simple with a single layer. Since curtains are fully customisable in shape and size, they can be used to cover most window sizes.

Curtains can enhance the appearance of your rooms. Through varying lengths and widths of curtains, you can attain different types of looks and styles. For example, rooms with vaulted ceilings work well with curtains, creating an outstanding feature in the room. Mounting your curtains behind pelmets can hide hanging hardware such as curtain rods or tracks. This can give your room a clean, streamlined finish. We also have a wide range of decorative curtain tracks to choose from

Inject a zest for life into your living spaces with solid, sharp or brightly coloured curtains. These choices vary according to the type of look you’re aiming for. When it comes to bright colours, it’s important to be mindful of colours that complement each other and those that don’t. SOM Blinds has an in-house interior design consultant who can help you choose the right blend, even for your rooms that have neutral colour schemes.

Advantages of Roman blinds

Timeless and classic

Roman blinds can transform your entire room’s interior with their classic and timeless look. Roman blinds can be manufactured from a variety of fabrics and styles, making them an appealing choice. If you want to achieve a minimalist interior design, Roman blinds are the perfect alternative to traditional curtains. While curtains can sometimes be heavy and overwhelming, Roman blinds are light and neat. They can be installed over your window or architraves – the choice is yours.

Privacy and shade

Shading your windows can help you create the ideal atmosphere in your home. Roman blinds can help control how much light enters your room, especially when the fabric is lined. Lining is optional and can serve a variety of purposes. A block-out liner can keep your home cooler and more shaded as opposed to standard liners that generally allow much more light to enter your home. Roman blinds do an excellent job at maintaining your privacy, while maintaining class and sophistication inside.


Choosing motorised Roman blinds over manual ones makes your Romans so much easier and quicker to open each day. Motorised Romans are also a much safer option for children and pets. Manual Roman blinds have cords and rings which can be a choking and strangling hazard. When your blinds are motorised, there is no need for these accessories. All our motorised blinds can be controlled using a remote control or a mobile device via your home automation system, making it the safest and easiest option for the whole family.

Ideal for small spaces

Roman blinds can make your interiors appear more spacious. Curtains can be bulky and space is needed for them to stack alongside your window when opened. If space is limited then Roman blinds are a great alternative. Roman blinds fold neatly and do not take up any extra space, leaving your window frame and its immediate surroundings in full view.

Easy to operate

Manual Roman blinds are simple to operate but motorised blinds are the ultimate effortless solution. The benefits of motorisation go beyond controlling your blinds through a remote control; you can control them even in your absence. Automated blinds become more than a convenience for those who have difficulty in physically operating blinds, or for those whose blinds are installed on difficult-to-reach windows

Energy-saving benefits

When the hot Australian summer arrives, you can keep the sunlight at bay with Roman blinds. Help keep your rooms feeling cool and comfortable, reducing your need for air conditioning. When those cold winter days come along, your Roman blinds can also help keep your interiors warm, minimising heat escape. Just how effective the energy-saving properties of your Roman blinds will be lies in your choice of fabric. At SOM Blinds, our interior designer can consult with you on which fabric will work best for your space.
