Once you have had sash windows installed into your home, then the next thing that you are going to want to try and do is make them a beautiful feature of the property. You can do many things to embrace your sash windows, one of which is to ensure they are matched with suitable curtains.

Still, trying to figure out where to start? To help you, we have put together our guide to the best curtain styles for sash windows and packed full of tips that you can use to make sure that your sash windows look the best they can in your home.

Sheer voile curtains

One of the main reasons people install sash windows in their properties is to bring as much natural light as possible into their homes. This means there is a good chance that they will want to avoid combining that big, open window with a heavy curtain.

It is a much better option to choose sheer voile curtains. These are designed to give privacy (which is what you want for your home) but let as much natural light in as possible.

Floor length curtains

To create an inviting and cosy space, you want to install floor-length curtains into your sash windows. Floor-length curtains will frame the window and ensure that it becomes a vital feature of the room. Not only this, but they are also quite dramatic and bold, which brings something extra to the space.

Another great thing about floor-length curtains is that they can be tied back as and when you need them to be. This means they can let plenty of light into the room, and then, when you want, you can close them.


If you are not a fan of curtains, you can install traditional shutters in your sash windows instead. Shutters are practical and functional. They can also be customised and changed to suit your home’s overall design and décor.

As well as looking great against sash windows, shutters are also designed to balance the light that comes into your home, and they can be adjusted as you need to. This will help filter the amount of light you allow and give you a chance to change the overall look and feel of the space.


One final option that you can consider blinds. Blinds are a perfect choice for families as they are safe and functional to install and don’t need cleaning as much as shutters. Blinds also come in various styles and colours, which means that you can find one that will suit your space.

Not only this, but you can also find blinds designed to be completely blacked out blinds, which will stop light from getting into specific spaces, such as bedrooms.

The choice of curtain that you install with your sash window is entirely down to you. Think about what style is going to work best with the space that you have, and then ensure that it is going to match the overall look and feel of your home.
