Sheer curtains are normally combined in order to get the benefits once curtains are closed and open.
The material you select for your window curtains will depend upon the upholstery of your furniture and the color of the walls. You also need to decide whether you want a thick material to block out sunlight or a lighter material that will let sunlight filter through. If you want to your curtain to be made of silk, make sure that you line it with cotton and interline it with flannel. If you don't do this, the sunlight will fade your silk and you will have to keep replacing your curtains often.
