The Benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings

There are many reasons why we love the windows in our homes. They let in light, views, and open up our space to make it bright and beautiful. However, without the right window treatments, that sunlight can feel extremely harsh and we may feel like the world has a front row seat into our home! Fortunately, Hunter Douglas offers a window treatment that provides lighting perks, privacy, and more: Silhouette® Window Shadings. Featuring adjustable S-shaped vanes that appear to be floating between the shade’s two sheer fabrics, Silhouette® Window Shadings softly filter light and obscure the outside world from being able to look into your home without taking away your views. Read on to discover the many benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings below.

The benefits of Silhouette Window Shadings Near Youngtown, Ohio, including custom options.

Benefit 1: Custom Styles

When it comes to finding the right shade for your home, function and style are equally important. Fortunately, one of the benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings is their stunning fabric options. For example, The Alustra® Collection of Silhouette offers an exclusive suite of fabrics, colors, and hardware to help you create a gorgeous look at each window. Whether you choose the popular color Smoke and Mirrors or the eye-catching Capri hue, this collection of shades will bring a pop of personality to any room.

Benefit 2: UV Protection

Who doesn’t love a good sunny day? While letting in the sunshine feels great, too much sun exposure can lead to damaged floors, artwork, upholstery and more. This is why one of the benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings is UV protection. Depending on your fabric of choice, Silhouette® Window Shadings can filter up to 88 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays. If you are in need of even more solace from the sun, the Silhouette Duolite® option offers room darkening benefits that block out nearly all incoming sources of light.

Benefit 3: Privacy

There is a time and place for being in the spotlight – theater productions, birthdays, and so on. However, no one wants the inside of their home to be on the world’s stage 24/7. That is why another one of the benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings is unparalleled privacy that never compromises your views. Featuring a white rear sheer that prevents anyone from viewing into your home, Silhouette® Window Shadings provide daytime privacy when you need it most. You can even enjoy privacy with the vanes open. This means you never have to choose between your views and privacy again. All you have to do is tilt the vanes to achieve your desired privacy and lighting goals. No more battling with pesky cords!


There is no denying our love for our home’s windows. However, when you are in need of light filtration, UV protection, privacy, and more, regular shades just won’t cut it. Fortunately, the many benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings will reach and exceed your expectations when it comes to finding the right shade for your home.
