What is a net curtain?
In this regard, what are net curtains made of?
Originally made of lace, the introduction of light polyester nets increased opportunities for hidden observing, and the net assumed its role as a cipher for suburbia and its supposed narrowness and nosiness.
One may also ask, can you see through net curtains? Net curtains are made of white thread woven in a bold pattern. Your eye is drawn to the pattern on the curtain and this disrupts the outline of anything on the other side. From indoors, the curtains are in shadow, silhouetted against the bright scene outside and your eye finds it much easier to ignore the pattern.
In this way, what is the difference between net and voile curtains?
Net curtains are generally knitted, often with a coarse yarn and mainly in white or cream, whereas voiles are woven giving a finer but more robust fabric and because of this will take a lot of embellishment, often with different coloured yarns.
Are net curtains good for privacy?
Net curtains are a no-no but, if you live in the city, it's nice to retain privacy at home, while still letting in as much natural light as possible. The effect is the same in daylight and at night when the light's on in the room, giving you total privacy.
