As spring comes around, it tends to bring a feeling of promise and excitement for what’s to come. By this time, we’ve usually slowed down from the busy holidays, children are looking forward to the completion of the school year, and the resolutions we’ve made at the New Year are in full swing or are ready to be rejuvenated. The best way to bask in this promising feeling is by fully taking in the spring weather and sunshine. However, if you can’t be outside all the time, you need to be able to still enjoy the natural light. If your window treatments are out-of-date, this might be easier said than done. With Hunter Douglas modern shadings from Hill Country Blinds, you can enjoy the spring sunshine even from the comfort of your own home.
With modern window shadings from Hunter Douglas, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds. Often when you think of window treatments, you probably think of a few major types, including shades and blinds. Shades offer simplicity and uniformity. With a single panel of fabric, they offer clean lines and minimal window clutter. To operate them, you simply open and close them. Blinds, on the other hand, offer additional flexibility. While you can completely raise and lower them as needed, you can also adjust the tilt of the slats to protect your privacy while letting natural light float in. Unfortunately, cables or wires usually hold the slats together, restricting the ability for a smooth, streamlined look at the window.
Modern shadings from Hunter Douglas allow you to choose both flexibility and a clean appearance. This is because they function much like blinds, but they incorporate the idea of the uniformity of shades. Instead of slats, modern window shadings have fabric vanes that are shaped a little differently depending on the style. Those vanes are then attached to one or two panels of sheer fabric. Rather than cords or wires, the sheer fabric connects the vanes together. This means that when the vanes are tilted, they appear to float in mid-air.
Silhouette® Window Shadings are the most similar to blinds. Silhouette Shadings utilize S-shaped vanes and two panels of sheer fabric. The vanes are suspended between the two panels, allowing you to tilt them and allow light to diffuse through the sheer fabric. You can also open and close the entire set.
