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.
For your living room and kitchen, you may want to consider a swag curtain pattern for your windows. They are similar to curtains for French doors but smaller in size. Their purpose is to simply cover the frames of the windows and add elegant details to them, while still allowing some amount of sunlight to keep your living room or kitchen bright in the morning.
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.
