Sheer Shade FAQs

What types of sheer shades do you offer?down arrow

We offer Hunter Douglas Nantucket®, Silhouette®, Pirouette®, and Luminette® shades.

Nantucket® Window Shadings are entry-level sheer shades with S-shaped vanes in casual fabrics paired between sheers. They are available in 3" vanes.

Silhouette® Window Shadings feature adjustable S-shaped vanes between light-diffusing front and back sheer panels. This design diffuses and softens harsh sunlight. Silhouette ClearView® shadings maximize your view with a unique sheer combination and superior view-through. Silhouette® shades are available in 2", 3", or 4" vanes.

Pirouette® Window Shadings feature sculptural fabric vanes attached to a sheer backing, an innovative design that provides variable light control, UV protection and reduced glare. The revolutionary InvisiLift™ system allows the horizontal vanes to appear as if they’re floating gracefully while opening and closing. Pirouette ClearView® Shadings feature a specialized sheer that provides a virtually unobstructed view to the outside. Pirouette® shades are available in 4" or 5" vanes.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers are light-diffusing vertical sheer panels with fully-integrated vertical vanes. 3 1/2" fabric vanes rotate for privacy while controlling the light in a room. Perfect for large windows and sliding-glass doors, their superior UV protection meets both your decorating and practical needs. Luminette sheers are designed to pair with horizontal Silhouette® and Pirouette® shades for a cohesive look throughout your home.

You can see all of our sheer shade products in our showrooms, located in Fishers and Carmel, Indiana. Your Drapery Street designer will help you choose the right sheer shades for your home and your budget.

What are Silhouette Halo™ shadings?down arrow

Silhouette Halo™ shadings, Hunter Douglas' newest innovation, feature unique, dual-layer fabric vanes that rotate up, down, or anywhere in between, giving you precise light control and privacy and eliminating harsh shadowing.

All Silhouette shadings feature soft fabric vanes suspended between two sheers that you can tilt to achieve your desired privacy, as well as UV protection for your floors and furnishings.

Visit one of our showrooms to experience all of Hunter Douglas' shades, including Silhouette Halo™ shades, in person.

Do your sheer shades provide privacy?down arrow

Yes. When the vanes of your shades are open, you'll experience daytime privacy. For full privacy, simply rotate the vanes closed.

Can I get privacy without blocking my views?down arrow

Yes, you can! When your sheer shades are down and the vanes are open, you will be able to enjoy views of your property while achieving daytime privacy.

The ClearView® feature provide an exceptionally clear view-through to the outside, while obscuring views into your space—and protecting your interiors from harsh UV rays.

How do I get light-filtering and room-darkening capabilities in one shade?down arrow

There are two options available for Silhouette® sheer shades that allow you to enjoy light-filtering and room-darkening capabilities with one shade.

The Duolite® System combines a translucent Silhouette shading in the front and a room-darkening roller shade in the back, so you can enjoy the view while maintaining your privacy. Silhouette Duolite® also makes it easy to set a mood. The translucent fabric diffuses harsh sunlight, creating a soft light—perfect for everything from relaxing to entertaining guests.

The A Deux™ feature combines a sheer shade and a room-darkening roller fabric into a single headrail, for flexible light control.

Your Drapery Street design consultant will help you decide which system is best for your home.

Can I use sheer shades on a door?down arrow

Yes. All Hunter Douglas sheer shades can be used on doors. For sliding glass doors, you may want to consider Luminette® Sheer Panels.

What kinds of fabrics and colors can I choose from?down arrow
