The Soft Folds of a Roman Shade with a Contemporary Twist
Hunter Douglas Solera Soft Shades are the perfect solution for anyone wanting to step towards a softer fabric window covering while retaining the practicality of a simple blind.
Solera Soft Shades offer a unique and attractive combination of the flowing folds of a roman blind and the energy-efficient design of a cellular shade.
The result is a softly sculpted window covering that looks stunning in a contemporary setting but can also be paired with more decorative draperies or panels.
Hunter Douglas Solera shades feature 4-inch cells, which gently drape into a scoop-like shape even when the blind is fully lowered, giving them the appearance of a modern roman blind. As the Solera shades are lifted, the cells concertina into themselves for a neat finish, whether partially or wholly raised.
Key Features of the Hunter Douglas Solera Soft Shades
Energy efficient: As with all honeycomb-style shades, Solera benefits from the energy-efficient insulating properties of their cellular structure. Air is trapped within the cells, which helps keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, saving energy and reducing your heating and cooling bills.
Luxurious fabric choices: Solera soft shades come in a wide range of luxury, textured fabrics that lend a look of comfort and sophistication to any room. From neutral colours and light textures to more contemporary options that give the feel of flowing draperies.
Internal cords for clean finish: Solera shades feature a solid backing fabric panel that gives a neat street-side view and hides away the internal cord system. This feature adds to Solera shades’ clean, modern look and feel.
Light control options: The backing fabric of the soft Solera shade is available in matching light filtering or room-darkening fabric for your choice of light control. Choose the light filtering options to retain muted natural light even when the shades are closed. For rooms where light reduction is preferred, opt for the room-darkening fabric.
Sound absorbent: Whether you have a noisy pastime you wish to protect your neighbours from or want to mute nearby traffic, another benefit to cellular-style shades is their ability to soften noise pollution.
Suit many window and door shapes: Hunter Douglas Solera Shades are suitable for harder-to-dress windows and doors, including:
- Bay windows
- Corner windows
- Patio and sliding doors
- French doors
