Voiles.  Simple, plain, lightweight  curtains that give privacy yet let light in.


We had some lovely ones ..... until we got a kitten.

Most fabric curtains are likely to be too heavy for a curtain wire (with or without a kitten swinging from them!)

I would still call them curtains, unless you are thinking those half curtains, which i'd call cafe curtains

I remember having some nasty curtains on a wire below the sink !

You can also buy tension rods which look better than 'wires' and are much narrower than poles.

talking of curtains.  I saw some absolutely beautiful curtains in Next but I was horrified to see they were over 300, hmmmppph I want them but I'm not paying that. 


These are the one, they actually look nicer in 'real life' than in the picture.

Ive just bought a pair of lined curtain, plus tension rod, as Id hoped to put them up at the bedroom window, ward off the cold a bit (I have shutters). Unfortunately they are a bit heavy for the rod, plus I need to lose a good few inches from the bottom (which I knew by the measurements). I could use one curtain, on the main window.
