Find the Right Shade Style for Homes

When it comes to home design, there are many decorative options you can explore. For example, you can add a fun rug to bring life into a living room. Additionally, you can add artwork to the walls of your bedroom to add a pop of personality. However, there is one addition to your home that can tie the room together while offering a plethora of benefits: window treatments. Of course, with so many options out there, is can be hard to choose. That is where we come in! Read on to find the right shade style for homes, including Silhouette® Shadings, Pirouette® Shadings, and Luminette® Privacy Sheers.

The Right Shade for Sunny Rooms

In order to find the right shade style for homes, you first need to understand what functional benefits your home would benefit from. For example, if you are trying to find a shade that transforms harsh sunlight into a soft glow, then you will love perusing our collection of Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings. Featuring easily adjustable S-shaped vanes and a variety of fabric colors to choose from, Silhouette® Window Shadings look great while filtering out brightness, UV rays, and harsh glare. This makes them perfect for rooms that see a lot of frequent sun.

The Right Shade for Modern Homes

If you are trying to find the right shade style for homes that enjoy a modern look, then you are in the right spot! In fact, your home can enjoy a modern twist on a trusted shade classic with our Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Window Shadings. Featuring the exclusive Alustra® Collection of Pirouette, these shades offer bold colors and premium fabrics that upgrade any window. These shades also feature softly contoured fabric vanes that are attached to a sheer backing to offer easy operation. If you are in need of some shade, all you have to do is shut the vanes to enjoy privacy when you need it most. On the flip side, if you want to enjoy some sunshine, these shadings can be raised entirely into the headrail for a beautiful, unobstructed view.

The Right Shade for Privacy

When it comes to finding the right window treatment for homes, privacy is often a major factor. After all, no one wants the outside world to look into their home! That is why we love recommending our Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers. Perfect for wide expanses of glass, including sliding glass doors, these sheers rotate up to 180° so you can achieve your ideal levels of light, shade, and privacy. These sheers also feature our Accents by the Yard™ option that lets you incorporate your shade’s fabrics, colors, and patterns into additional decorative pieces, such as duvets and throw pillows. No matter your functional and aesthetic goals, you are sure to find the right shade style for homes with these custom sheers.
