Our homes do a lot for us. They are the places where we rest, where we spend time with our friends and families, where we cook and eat, where we enjoy our hobbies and free time, and even the places where many of us work. Because of this, it’s safe to say that no two homes are alike, but it’s also safe to say that no two spaces in one home are alike, either. Your bedroom will be different from the bedrooms of your children, and those bedrooms will be different from your kitchen, bathrooms, and any other space in your home. Because of this, when it comes time to purchase window treatments, you likely will worry that you are going to have to find different ones for every room in your home. However, we are here to tell you about one of the most versatile window treatments on the market. Keep reading to let the team at Takoy Windows by Design tell you about Hunter Douglas Silhouette® shades for homes near Meridian, ID.
What are Silhouette® shades?
Hunter Douglas Silhouette® shades are a type of sheer shading. Sheer shadings were created by Hunter Douglas to combine the best of three different types of window treatments: curtains, window shades, and blinds. They do this by taking the sheer or translucent fabric that is associated with sheer drapes and using it as a base for an innovative window shade. Instead of simply letting the fabric provide light control on its own, Hunter Douglas also added movable fabric vanes, which provide greater functionality and more personalized light control. This unique combination of features makes Silhouette® sheer shadings a great choice for any space.
What light control do Silhouette® shades offer?
One thing that makes Hunter Douglas Silhouette® shades so incredible is that they offer more light control options than nearly any other window treatment. Silhouette® shades feature two sheer fabric panels. These panels filter natural light as it comes through your window, which softens it. However, this diffusion also spreads the light around, gently illuminating your space. Additionally, if you would like more total darkness, you can also close the fabric vanes as you would a blind and experience complete light control. No matter what mood you are in, Silhouette® shades are there for you.
How do you operate Silhouette® shades?
Operating your window shades can occasionally be quite stressful as the operation hardware for shades is occasionally very delicate and temperamental. Luckily, Hunter Douglas knows that no one installs window fashions and then never touches them again, which is why they have ensured that operation for all windows coverings—including Hunter Douglas Silhouette® shades—is smooth and seamless. However, if you would rather not bother with operation, you can also choose to upgrade your Silhouette® shades to use Hunter Douglas PowerView® motorization. This allows you to adjust your shades remotely, or automate them so that you never have to adjust them at all.
