How to Control Light Using Silhouette Shades

The lighting in your home should reflect your mood and your personal tastes. You should be able to control how much or how little light you would like to enter your home. Depending on the time of day or the occasion, you may want to limit or increase the level of natural light that your rooms receive. A romantic dinner calls for reduced lighting, a mid-afternoon movie session requires total darkness, and an early morning coffee break calls for open windows with full sunlight. It can be difficult to get every combination of light with curtains or drapes, however. While curtains can be sheer or blackout, there is rarely any in-between. Opting for a more dynamic solution such as Silhouette shades is a better option to allow the perfect amount of light into your home. With Silhouette shades you have several options to choose from including color, style, and density.

Advantages of Silhouette Shades

One of the distinct advantages that can be gained from choosing Silhouette shades for your home is that you are able to control the amount of light that you want to let in. While curtains have two modes – open or closed – shades give you many options. Hunter Douglas Silhouette® shades use Signature S-Vane™ technology that allows the shade to seem like it is floating between two sheer fabrics.  It can be adjusted to allow you to control the light level and make the room more private. You can choose how sheer or opaque you want your shades to be. In addition to controlling light, Silhouette shades offer protection to the interior of your home from glare, heat and UV rays – in fact these shades can filter out up to 88% of the sun’s harmful rays! Shades can mitigate the damage that sunlight often causes to fabrics, carpeting, and even wallpaper, and help prevent premature fading.

Options with Silhouette Shades

There are so many different options to choose from when selecting the right shade for your home. Silhouette shades are a great choice for light filtration. They can reduce sun glare on your windows, and these special fabrics come in 12 styles and over 100 different hues that not only compliment your home, but allow you to let in the exact right amount of light for your room. Choose a darker tint for an elegant look, or a lighter tint knowing that the sheer fabric in the back of the shade also creates privacy. Silhouette shades are the perfect minimalist window treatment. They are sleek and sophisticated in form yet offer protection from sunlight and privacy from prying eyes. Custom silhouette shades will fit into your windows perfectly. You can choose the color and opacity that best fit your interior decoration scheme.  There are 4 operating systems to choose from (including cordless) and there is a very popular Duolite option available. Specialty window shapes are also available, and these shades come with the Hunter Douglas lifetime limited warranty and are designed and custom-crafted in the U.S.
