How to use Chiffon Curtains
Chiffon can be use on their own, although we recommend this mainly for windows in non-living areas (eg. hallways, entryways, stairwells, etc.). As they offer no insulating or light blocking properties. Chiffon are also the perfect partner with curtains (not suitable with Wooden blinds, Duplex Blinds, Vertical Blinds, Motorized Blinds, Roller Blinds or any kind of blinds and shutters) as they offer privacy without blocking out light when the curtain is open. Please note this is only during the daylight. Once it’s dark outside and you turn on a light the Chiffon become transparent from the outside.
Another contemporary idea for Chiffon is to use them as a continuous backdrop in a room. Because they allow light and shapes to filter through, tying the room together without completely hiding architectural features.

As the main benefit of sheers is diffusing light while still retaining visibility outwards,Chiffons are an excellent addition to bedrooms and living spaces, especially those expose to the road front or neighbouring properties.

Like with curtains, you want your sheers to have a bit of a wave to them. When measuring the width, double or triple the width of your window depending how billowy you want them to appear.
With the height, if use in conjunction with a floor length curtain, you can either have the sheer the same length or only have the Chiffons hang down to the sill. If they are to hang on their own floor length is recommend; not only is it a much more elegant look, due to the lightweight nature of the fabric, the extra weight from a longer length will help it hang straighter.
How they hang

For sheers that hang behind a curtain, you will need a separate rod from the curtain. Chiffons commonly have a backing strip with hooks that run on a track.
