Why choose Silhouette® shadings?
Silhouette® shadings are sheer shades feature soft vanes of fabric that appear to be floating between two sheers.They diffuse harsh sunlight in your home to allow better illumination. All you need to do is adjust the vanes to get the amount of privacy and light control you want. Watch the video below to learn more Silhouette® shadings and to see if they are the right solution for your home.
Additionally, sheer shades are a great alternative to panels. They are easier to operate, can mount inside the window frame taking up less space and can adjust to three different positions of partially open, closed, and they can also disappear completely into the headrail.
Last, Silhouette® shadings create a soft glow in your home by reducing the harshness of the natural light coming in through your windows. The back panel also increasing privacy by obscuring the view into your home without blocking your view to the outside world. These shadings are created from the highest-quality materials, so they will look great for years to come.
Silhouette® shadings are easy to operate, and we have several operating systems available. This variety allows you to choose the one that works best for your home.
Selecting Vane Size
One of the differences between Nantucket™ shadings and Silhouette® shadings is that Silhouette® shadings are offered in 2″, 3″ and 4″ vane sizes, allowing you to get the right amount of privacy and light control for your home. Nantucket™ shadings offer one option of a 3″ vane.
Light Diffusion and Protection
Harness the sunlight that pours into your home with Silhouette® shades. Silhouette® shadings create a beautiful ambient light in your living space, so you can reduce the amount of artificial light you use by maximizing daylight hours. These sheer shades also softly filter out brightness, glare, and UV rays, protecting your furnishings from fading.
