Make note that a curtain can serve two purposes: It can be a decorative element in your home and it can serve the purpose to block out light. Maybe you have a room where you don't care about blocking out light, in this case the thickness of the curtain will not matter a lot. You can then focus on style or color instead. On the other hand, if the main function of your curtain will be to block sunlight (for example in your bedroom) then a thin and translucent curtain will not be of much use. In such cases you want a curtain made from thick material that won't let through a lot of light. This is also a concern if your house doesn't have blinds and the curtain will be your only way to darken a room during day time.
Let's talk about sheer curtains, as they are amongst the most popular. Semitransparent, these curtains are preferred in rooms in which light is desired to enter. The materials used for the creation of such curtains include polyester textile voile, cotton lace and similar fabrics. You can expect sheer curtains to provide very little or absolutely no protection against direct sunlight. However, they are considered to be pretty useful by those who desire protection against UV harmful rays. Due to the fineness of the fabric, the visibility won't be affected at all. Sheer curtains are often used for privacy reasons.
Do you already have curtain rods installed at home? Will your existing rods work with your new curtain? If they will not, you will either have to replace your curtain rods to accommodate the new curtain, or buy a different curtain but keep your rods instead. On the other hand, if you find a new, beautiful curtain it can be well worth it to replace your existing wall mounts and rods.
