But first, you need to understand that the primary purpose of having a curtain in your room is to keep your bedroom warm, block out the light when you sleep, and even maintain your privacy during those cozy moments. But there is more; your curtain should make your room look classy and beautiful.

If you are looking for some privacy but do not want to block out the natural light, especially during the daytime, you can choose to use voiles as they are the perfect solution. Rather than having blind-out curtains or heavy curtains that completely block out the external lights, the use of voiles will give a natural feel inside of your room by letting you enjoy your privacy. The voile curtains make your room look bigger and give it a more airy feel.
The best way to use voile curtains is to use them in combination with blackout curtains so that you can vary the amount of light entering inside of your room. At night, when you need it to be completely dark, you can draw your blackout curtain, and in the daytime, you can have your voiles do the job.
If you have a basic and plain room, you should choose curtains with patterns to add some zest. You can choose to have modern patterns or flowers and leaves. You can also choose colored patterns if your room is basic white or pastel. Keep your room simple if you are fond of patterned and bold colored curtains.
