Benefits of Sheers and Shadings for Homes Near Cambridge, MA

Finding a solution for your windows that offers comprehensive light control, comfort, style, and privacy is often a tough task for many homeowners. However, achieving this tricky balance for any window in your home is totally possible when you choose Hunter Douglas custom sheers and shadings. In fact, there are multiple great options you can choose from for beautiful natural light in your home and elegance throughout the day.

Silhouette® Window Shadings

One problem many people face when trying to fill their home with natural light is the fact that doing so often means letting harsh sunlight inside. You don’t want to make your home dark and dreary when the sun is shining, but you also don’t want your floors to fade or your home to reach sweltering temperatures. You can often layer blinds or shutters with a sheer drape, but this can look a bit cluttered and it won’t work for every window. On the other hand, the Silhouette® Window Shadings provide incredibly thorough and flexible light control with a single window covering.

This brilliant shade features two panels of sheer fabric, which diffuse sunlight entering your home to get rid of glare and most of the sun’s UV rays. The result is a home filled with soft natural light throughout the day. You also get to maintain your view with these shades while also getting privacy during the daytime. For privacy at all hours and for more substantial shade, you can easily adjust the soft, horizontal vanes that are found in between the sheer fabric panels.

Pirouette® Window Shadings

You can also choose the Pirouette® Window Shadings for horizontal sheers and shadings that provide soft light, versatility, and UV protection for your home. This variation of sheers and shadings uses just one panel of sheer fabric behind a series of horizontal fabric vanes. The fabric vanes on the Pirouette® Window Shadings use a unique design to help you control your shade level by folding and expanding to open and close. The sleek design of these shades also results in a clean looking background, making the vanes appear to float in front of your windows.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers

You can also get the convenient versatility of sheers and shadings for your wide windows and sliding glass doors with the Luminette® Privacy Sheers. These custom sheers and shadings are oriented vertically like vertical blinds and can open easily from side to side thanks to a smooth headrail design. The shades feature vertical hanging fabric vanes inside of sheer fabric cells, creating a versatile window treatment for shade and light control. These shades, in particular, create an elegant appearance in any room with their reflective vanes and glowing panels.

Each collection of Hunter Douglas custom sheers and shadings can be customized by choosing from a wide selection of fabrics, colors, and opacity levels.
