Top 4 Reasons to Choose Hunter Douglas Sheer Shades

Sheer window shades are the perfect union between a sheer curtain and a window blind. The former being a generic window treatment you likely recall from your childhood, and the latter being one of most popular, but not always versatile, window coverings. Sheer shades are attractive, versatile, and affordable. At Design 5, we offer premium quality Hunter Douglas sheer window shadings, and we’d love to help you choose yours.

Pirouette® Window Shades near Honolulu, Hawaii (HI) Hunter Douglas Sheer Shades, benefits of sheer shades

Filtering Light & Blocking UV Rays

One distinct advantage of sheer shades is their ability to diffuse light, rather than block it out. They reduce harsh glares from the sun and, in doing so, also keep the temperature in your room at a tolerable level. Protection from UV rays is another benefit of having sheer shades. You always think of UV rays as being a threat only if you’re outside, but they easily pass through windows. When they do, your furniture, floor coverings, and artwork will be at risk of fading and becoming discolored after repeated exposure.

Ensuring Your Privacy

The same sheer fabric that diffuses light also provides you with daytime privacy. Silhouette® Window Shadings from Hunter Douglas have a unique 2-panel design that increases your privacy without decreasing your incoming light and outgoing view. Adjustable S-shaped vanes float between two panels, giving you the privacy, you want even with the vanes tilted open to allow light in.

Sleek, Sophisticated & Versatile

Sheer shades are as beautiful as they are useful. The clean lines of Pirouette® Window Shadings look right at home in a minimalist style of decor. Pirouette® shades feature adjustable fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing. When tilted to change incoming light, the vanes move in tandem for fluid and graceful effect. Sheer fabrics give rooms an open, airy feel while still providing privacy. They can also be paired with other window treatments, such as drapery or roman shades, to create an even more versatile window covering. You can choose to use the heavier covering when complete privacy is desired or open it only slightly if you want just a small amount of light. For sliding doors or large expanses of windows, Luminette® Privacy Sheers are the perfect solution for vertical applications.

Easy to Operate & Maintain

Sheers are incredibly lightweight, making them easy to lift and lower for everyone. They can also be used on any size window without the worry of the shades being too heavy. For extra convenience, consider PowerView® Automation and operate your blinds using your voice or smart device. Motorized blinds can even help reduce your utility costs by automatically opening and closing at certain times of day to maintain your home’s temperature.

Your sheer window shades are a breeze to maintain. There is no required upkeep other than a regular light dusting, using a soft cloth or feather duster, to remove dirt and other debris. Unlike hardwood window treatments, sheers will not be damaged by moisture. This means you can spot treat any stains using warm water and a mild detergent. It doesn’t get much easier!
