Sheer drapes give the room a light and breezy look. If your room is not overlooked by anyone, you can use sheer drapes to keep the atmosphere bright, without any other fabric. If however you need to consider privacy, you can mix and match with darker colored drapes or install blackout curtains.
You can save energy by installing the right window treatments
