Sheer Shades = Sheer Beauty

This category of window shadings offers you the privacy of a window shade, the softened view of a sheer, and the light control and versatility of a horizontal blind all in one beautifully elegant and innovative product. The soft fabric vanes are suspended between two sheer fabric facings. In the fully lowered position, the vanes can be tilted open for more light and view or closed for total privacy or anywhere in between – so easy, so beautiful!

These soft window coverings are also very energy efficient. In the open position, they can block as much as 88% of harmful UV rays and when closed they offer an impressive 99% UV protection.

With sheer shadings, you can create the degree of privacy you desire with an array of translucent or room dimming fashion-forward fabrics. These beautiful and uniquely shaped window fashions provide exceptional view-through while transforming harsh daylight even when open. Sheer shadings offer optimal privacy with precision tilting of the vanes making light control easy. These shades can be raised or lowered to any length and when raised fully they disappear into the headrail for an unobstructed view.

Diffuse sunlight to ambient light

Silhouette® Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas have been the leader in light diffusion with specially crafted fabrics that transform harsh sunlight into beautiful ambient light. With no cords or tapes, the sheer facings allow you to view through the vanes to the outside while maintaining privacy. A similar product, Hunter Douglas Nantucket™ Sheer Shades are available in a range of casual fabrics that diffuse sunlight while maintaining outside views and indoor privacy.

Sheer shadings are also a great choice for areas where privacy is needed. The sheer material allows you to see out during the day while providing privacy. When it gets dark, there are privacy vanes that can be rotated closed which eliminates the view through from the outside. These shadings are also available in a vertical format which is ideal for large expanses of glass or patio doors. The vertical sheer shadings combine a sheer fabric with vertical vanes attached to the back of the sheer. These vanes can rotate up to 180°, giving you precise light control and privacy.

Pirouette® Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas provides a bold and modern alternative to the look and feel of traditional sheer shades. Pirouette® shadings feature softly contoured fabric vanes that are attached to a single layer of sheer material with invisible threads. The vanes appear to magically open and close giving you complete control over your desired degree of light filtration and privacy.
