Frequently Asked Questions

Do sheer curtains go in front or behind?

While both are acceptable, the more common approach these days is to place the heavier curtain behind, and the sheer curtain in front. For aesthetic reasons, the sheer curtain is not noticeable when open, and it allows the textures and patterns of the heavier curtain to be seen. Additionally, placing the heavier curtain closer to the glass creates added insulation for your room and blocks harsh weather conditions.
