Styling With Hunter Douglas Shades

Window treatments are an important part of your home’s decor. Not only do window treatments show off your personal style and make a room look finished, window treatments are also important for privacy and light control. Sometimes the objective of window treatments in a particular room is to keep the light control minimal to let the light in, but sometimes you also want to keep the element of privacy. Hunter Douglas has a few options that can accomplish both goals.


Sheers are lightweight, easy to style, and give a breezy look as well as color and texture to a room. Hunter Douglas offers a line of privacy sheers known as Luminette®. These sheers are especially designed for wide windows and sliding glass doors. Luminette® Privacy Sheers come in a wide variety of colors and fabric options to accomplish privacy and light control needs for any home. Luminette® sheers are available with Hunter Douglas’ patented PowerView® Motorization automatic lift system. All Hunter Douglas PowerView® shadings can be operated with a remote control, an app for your smart phone or tablet, or autonomously with a programmed schedule. PowerView® adds a new level of sophistication, security and energy efficiency to the smart home, and supports an expanding variety of leading home automation systems.


Shades are a good option when you want to diffuse natural light and keep the view looking out while controlling the privacy looking in. Hunter Douglas has several options for shades. Silhouette® from Hunter Douglas incorporates soft and adjustable fabric vanes that give the illusion that they’re floating between to sheer panels of fabric. They do a wonderful job at diffusing harsh light from the sun. Silhouette® shadings are easy to adjust and by simply tilting the vanes, you can achieve the perfect balance of light and privacy. Silhouette® shadings are also available with PowerView® Motorization.

If the decor in your home is a little more ornate, Hunter Douglas offers the Alustra® Collection of Silhouette®. This collection of shadings is crafted from an exclusive selection of fabrics chosen by world class designers. The fabrics are beautifully textured and feature metallic accented vanes and metallic hardware finishes.

Another option for shadings is the Pirouette® collection. This product features vanes made of soft fabric which are then attached to a sheer backing that appears to be floating, much like the Shilouette® collection. Pirouette® shadings do a wonderful job of drawing in and diffusing natural light. When they’re closed, they look just like a contemporary shade.

Also available with the PowerView® Motorization option, Hunter Douglas offers the Alustra® Collection of Pirouette®. Offering refined texture, high quality, hand-picked fabrics and a subtle sheen, they create the perfect ambiance as they filter sunlight when it enters the windows of a room.

For a more economical option, Hunter Douglas offers the stylish Nantucket™ shadings. This customizable collection offers a more streamlined selection of fabrics and operating systems, while still offering a wide selection of color options. Featuring 3 inch vanes that tilt easily for effective light control in any room, Nantucket™ shadings are also available with Hunter Douglas’ PowerView® motorization automatic lifting system.
