Combining blockout curtains and sheer curtains is a great way to achieve both privacy and light control in a room. Blockout curtains are designed to keep out light and provide privacy, while sheer curtains are light and airy, allowing natural light to filter through while still providing some degree of privacy.
We have put together our most popular pairs of blockout and sheer curtains to make it super easy to buy double curtains. Simply choose your favourite combination and customise - we'll take care of the rest! If you're unsure which to choose, you can always order free samples first.
When choosing curtains, consider the colour and pattern of each type. You may want to choose blockout curtains in a solid colour or dark shade, while the sheers can be a light colourn. This will help create a cohesive look while also achieving the desired level of light control and privacy.
Ultimately, the choice is up to you! Although, we generally recommend S-fold for your sheer curtain and Pencil Pleat for your blockout curtain. This will ensure that your curtains don't protrude too far into the room while still getting a designer-look at the front for your sheers and ultimate blockout at the back.
If you are instilling into a pelmet, you might consider two pencil pleat curtains as this requires the least clearance.
You will need at least 230mm of clearance if you are installing into a pelmet or bulkhead.
Front or Back
When installing your curtains, you need to decide whether to place your sheer or blockout at the front. This also come down to personal preference. However, we would recommend placing the sheer at the front for easier access and to highlight your feature fabric.
Face Fix or Top FIx
If installing top fix, you will receive two separate sets of tracks and brackets. If installing face fix, we will provide two tracks and a double bracket. Read this article to help make this decision or learn more about top fix vs face fix here.
You will have the option of selecting different openings for each curtain. For example, you may want to have your sheer open all the way to the left and have your blockout open in the centre. Learn more about opening styles here.
