Versatility Meets Beauty in Silhouette® Duolite™ Window Shading

silhouette-duolite-500pxAs the sun moves around our home through out the day, we find ourselves adjusting our window treatments on a daily basis whether it be for more privacy, to let the light in, or to keep it out! Watching a movie, taking a nap, working in a home office, you name it, and you’re fidgeting with your blinds and shades.

Should you need more light control, the new Silhouette Duolite window shading gives you the versatility you’ve been longing for in your window treatments. It contains a black-out roller shade and Silhouette window shading all in one headrail, with one operating system.

We love the simplicity and ease of operation. You can enjoy your beautiful Silhouette window shadings while having the option of a black-out shade at your fingertips when needed for everyday household activities. On the days when the sun is shining brightly, Silhouette window shadings transform the sun’s harsh rays into glowing radiant light throughout your home and really stand alone as beautiful window treatments. Being able to lower a black-out shade is useful in the rooms needed most such as media rooms and bedrooms. There is no need to compromise on beauty for function, stop in our showroom or make an appointment and our experienced staff will help you find the perfect solution for daily living.

Light Control is more beautiful than ever

Window treatments to illuminate your living space

Since installing Nantucket Window Shadings in our living room and dining room last fall, we have really enjoyed them; they were the perfect choice! I will highlight our favorite features:

At Home Designs

Our Nantucket Window Shadings in our living room.

1. Privacy. We live on a fairly busy street. When the shades are tilted open or closed, both offer great privacy. When tilted open, you can see outside through the sheer fabric, while people can’t see inside. The sheer fabric offers enough daytime privacy while still enjoying a partial view.


2. Cordless lifting system. We can easily open, tilt, and close our shades and we do so everyday! Before we had a baby, I wasn’t convinced  that cordless shades were totally necessary. Now that our daughter Maddie is nine months old, she is reaching for everything! Having cords would be another worry on my list. Overall, opening and closing the shades is a cinch, with baby in arm!


3. Light control. When Maddie and I are hanging out on the couch in the morning sunshine, the light shines right in our eyes! I close the shades completely, and the light glows through the sheer fabric, offering a soft lighting in the room.


4. Simple elegance.  The Nantucket Window Shadings are beautiful, yet not too dressy. The fabric we chose complements the character of our Cape Cod home.


5. Unobstructed view. When open, the shades completely disappear into the headrail, for an unobstructed view of the beautiful yard and trees. Our windows are small, so it’s nice that there is no stack back like you see with wood blinds. Maddie also loves to watch the cars and people go by in the neighborhood, so we raise the shade for her. She gets very excited!


If the above features resonate with you, Hunter Douglas Nantucket or Silhouette Window Shadings may be the best choice for your next design project. Choosing the right lifting system is really important so that your window treatments are easy to operate and meet your needs. More product questions? We can help.
