Enjoy Outdoor Views and Indoor Privacy with these Light Diffusing Sheer Shades
Hunter Douglas Nantucket Blinds are a unique blend between a sheer curtain and a horizontal blind, creating a natural diffused light while maintaining privacy from the outside world.
Nantucket blinds feature 3-inch S-shaped vanes suspended between two sheer fabric layers. This design allows the vanes to be tilted open and closed like regular blinds to control light and privacy.
However, no matter what position the vanes are in, the front and back sheer layers remain in place to keep the light soft and prevent anyone outside from seeing through.
Why Choose Hunter Douglas Nantucket Window Shades?
There are many benefits to choosing Hunter Douglas Nantucket Blinds, such as:
Prolonged exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause damage, such as fading and warping, to flooring and furniture. The sheer fabric of the Nantucket Blind can filter up to 88% of UV rays when the vanes are open and up to 99% of the damaging sun rays when the vanes are in a fully closed position. Nantucket blinds allow you to protect your furniture while still enjoying the natural light and view.
Hunter Douglas Nantucket blinds are ideal if you require privacy but still wish to retain some natural sunlight. When seen from the outside, these sheer coverings block the view into the home, yet anyone inside can still see out. For complete privacy at night time, the vanes should be fully closed.
Allowing some natural light into the home is good for our mental health and reduces the energy spent on artificial lighting. Because Nantucket blinds allow gently filtered sunlight into your home, you can still feel all the benefits of natural light without the damage risks. When you want to block out the light, close the vanes partially or fully for significant room darkening.
