Voiles are close cousins of the net curtain. They’re distinct in that they come in the form of two panels that join in the centre. They come in a greater range of colours, too – you’re not limited to white and off-white!
The word ‘voile’ is derived from an old French word, meaning ‘veil’. And that’s exactly the function of these curtains: they allow a building’s occupants to see outside, but prevent anyone standing outside from seeing in. They also disperse the natural light that enters a room, taking the edge off that sunlight. Curtains like this represent a great way to provide house plants with sunlight while protecting your furniture against sun damage.
The kitchen voiles you’ll find on this page are all 100% polyester, and available in a range of fixed sizes. Traditionally, voiles are hung to just below the bottom of the frame – though you may prefer yours to hang a little shorter. Be sure to get enough curtain to fill your window twice over – that way you’ll have enough material to create a nice hem.
Of course, it’s impossible to know for sure how your voiles will look before they’ve actually been installed. For this reason, we offer a sixty-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to shop in confidence.
