Benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings

Is there anything better than a sunny day after a long winter? Spring is a wonderful season that simply makes us feel lighter. Is it the blooming flowers? The blue skies? The promise of warm summer days ahead? Perhaps it’s all three. One thing is for sure: now that spring is here, we want to embrace it to the fullest. That is why we bring in flowers, hang up photographs of nature, and take long walks outside on lovely days. Of course, there are even more ways to enjoy light than being outside. In fact, the shades we hang at our windows have a large influence over the strength and amount of light coming into our homes. That is why we are excited to talk about Silhouette® Window Shadings. You will love the soft, adjustable S-shaped vanes of these shades that let you enjoy both light and privacy at the same time. Read on to learn more.

Benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings, Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings near Youngstown, Ohio (OH)

Benefit 1: Views and Privacy

If you think you can only enjoy either privacy or views, we are happy to reframe your thinking.  Silhouette® ClearView® lets you bask in maximized views to the outdoors while the white rear sheer obscures views into your home. This lets you enjoy views and privacy at the same time, even when your shades are open. All you have to do to achieve this is tilt the vanes to your desired position. It’s that easy. Silhouette® Window Shadings also provide UV protection to keep your furnishings, artwork, and flooring safe throughout those bright spring and summer days.

Benefit 2: Stunning Styles

While we love a shade that works hard, it must also look good, too! The perfect combination between style and function, Silhouette® Window Shadings transform your windows into a work of art while complementing your home’s interiors. Fashion forward, The Alustra® Collection of Silhouette is steeped in stunning designs as seen in its fabrics, textures, colors, and hardware. Consider popular colors like Smoke and Mirrors, Capri, Castille, and more to make these shade unique to you.

Benefit 2: Room-Darkening

As much as we love sunshine, sometimes, we need a little bit of privacy and shade. This is especially true when it comes to our bedrooms and media rooms! That is why our Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings offers room-darkening capabilities for rooms that need a little more shade than others. Silhouette Duolite® Shadings provide the light-diffusing benefits of a traditional Silhouette® shade with the additional benefit of an independently operated roller shade that is nestled right behind it for total light control. No more dealing with too much natural or artificial light when you need some reprieve.
