Shades for Perfect Lighting in 2022

Life is full of customizable options. And this is a great thing! Everyone is not meant to fit into the same square box for every single thing in life. We can customize our clothes, hair, meals, shoes, and even our cars to fit our needs. Of course, customization is also part of making our homes into the perfect spaces for us. We get the right flooring for our lifestyles, the best furniture for our tastes, and bedding that makes us wake up feeling refreshed. At Monarch Paint & Design Centers, one way we also exert our customization talents is when selecting window treatments.

Hunter Douglas offers a wide range of custom options for their window treatments. However, if you want a shade that offers custom styles, UV protection, and light control, then you will love our Pirouette® Window Shadings.

Easy to Operate

Custom doesn’t have to mean complicated. When it comes to Pirouette® Window Shadings, you can enjoy custom lighting and styles without any operation complications. Boasting clean, minimalist lines, Pirouette® Window Shadings features softly contoured vanes on a single sheer backing to allow buttery-smooth operation each and every time. No more feeling like a puppeteer about to throw in the towel when you want to achieve some simple light or shade. Pirouette® Window Shadings can also be raised completely into the headrail, so you never have to worry about missing out on your views. Want views but not intense sunlight? Pirouette® ClearView® Window Shadings let you enjoy your views while turning harsh sunlight into a soft glow throughout your home.

Styles for You

While light control is important when it comes to your shades, style is also important! Adding a window treatment that doesn’t pair well with your home is like trying to place a round peg in a square hole. Fortunately, the Alustra® Collection of Pirouette features exclusive fabrics that have design at the forefront of every stitch and color used. Whether you are a obsessed with having the best in design or you are an individual who simply appreciates a good aesthetic, Pirouette® Window Shadings have a style for you. Explore popular fabric colors like Pesto, Raw Canvas, Storm, and more to create a window that you will love seeing.

Sun Protection

Window treatments are not a substitute for sunscreen if you decide to go out during a sunny day. However, they can act as a sun protectant for your flooring, furniture, artwork, and other home furnishings. Pirouette® Window Shadings block up to 81 percent of harmful UV rays when opened and 99 percent when closed, making them excellent for rooms that see a lot of sun throughout the day.
