Using Light as a Design Element With Hunter Douglas Shades

When we think of the elements used to design window treatments, things like fabric, trim, and hardware come to mind. These things are all important, of course, but have you ever considered light as a design element?

Many times in window fashions, we’re concerned with either blocking light out or letting light in. But light can do so much more! Manipulating light with your window treatments allows you to create a variety of different moods in one room. Several products from our Hunter Douglas gallery are designed to maximize your use of exterior light to set the tone for your room.

Hunter Douglas Luminette Shades

Luminette® Privacy Sheers provide light coverage that can be adjusted as needed. You can choose a softened view and diffused light, or you can close them completely if you’d rather rely on interior light. These sheers are great for rooms like the bedroom because even when they are open, you have privacy coverage.

Hunter Douglas Pirouette

If you like the intense look of sunlight cutting through your blinds, Pirouette® window shadings may be for you. They can be closed to block exterior light, but on sunny days you can open them to create deep shadows that add depth to your room.

Hunter Douglas Silhouette

Silhouette® window shadings are another great option if you want to move from soft and muted light to powerful contrast. When closed, you can tilt these shades to allow different levels of light in your room, in addition to simply open and closing the shades. So much versatility in one window treatment! Pairing this with drapery panels adds even more choices for styling.
