Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors. From days at the lake to nights out on the town, we try to get the most out of the season. So, when we need to spend some time at home or get a break indoors from the heat, we still want to be able to enjoy the sunshine. While traditional window coverings function well, modern products from Hunter Douglas allow for even more light control with window coverings that make a unique statement. Contact Hill Country Blinds to learn more about our selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments for better light control.
You might be used to the light control offered by blinds, shades, and curtains, but you may feel like you are limited by the fabric’s opacity. You can partially open shades or curtains, but what should you do if you want to keep the windows covered while enjoying a bright day? With Silhouette®, Pirouette® and Luminette® Window Shadings, that dilemma can be a problem of the past.
Silhouette® Window Shadings are constructed with two sheer panels. In between the two panels are S-shaped vanes that appear to function like blinds while bringing an elegant, unique style to your home. With the vanes lying horizontal, light can filter in through the sheer panels. For more privacy, you can adjust the vanes to an angle suitable for your needs. This product also has an added benefit depending on your fabric selection. We all know that ultraviolet rays can damage our skin, but you may not think about the impact that those rays have on your furniture. With Silhouette® shades, you can now filter out up to 88% of these harmful UV rays.
Similarly, Pirouette® Window Shadings add texture to sheer fabric with gently contoured vanes that allow you to control the amount of light filtered while protecting your privacy. These fabric vanes float on a single sheer backing thanks to the revolutionary InvisiLift™ system. This product also filters out UV rays, blocking up to 99% when the vanes are closed.
If this unique construction style fits your personality, then Luminette® Privacy Sheers can carry this look seamlessly throughout your home. Perfect for picture windows and sliding glass doors, this window covering is constructed with sheer drapery panels featuring vertical fabric vanes. Functioning like the related shades, diffused light will disperse throughout your home when the vanes are open. This product also has a modernly designed headrail that hides the hardware, maintaining your home’s clean and elegant look.
