When Hunter Douglas developed its innovative Silhouette Window Shadings, the company created an entirely new category of window coverings. Silhouette Window Shadings were born of customers’ desire for a product that combined the versatility of a tilting louvered blind with the softness and tight stacking of a shade. Using their signature S-vane, Hunter Douglas did just that.
Imagine gently pulling on a cord at the side of the window and watching a sheer, soft fabric shade lower from a clean, fabric-covered head rail. In the closed position, the shading offers privacy while still allowing a soft, filtered light to permeate the room. When the shade material reaches the bottom of the window, it magically flips open, providing a full view to the outside through an ultra-fine sheer material. Welcome to Silhouette Window Shadings.
Silhouette products allow the consumer to control light without sacrificing her view. A perfect window treatment for rooms with a view (in Wilmington, NC that might mean overlooking a marsh, the Intracoastal waterway or the beachfront), when raised, Silhouette shadings pull completely up and out of the way for unobstructed appreciation of the local scenery.
The Silhouette Shadings product line also allows for room darkening options. When closed, the shadings darken the room for sleeping or movie watching. Open, they provide privacy during the day–you can see out, but others can’t see in.
Silhouette Shadings come with several control options such as Lightrise Cordless and the UltraGlide Retractable Cord System. Not only do these control systems create a neat, uncluttered look, they also act as an important child safety feature. The PowerRise motorized option is ideal for out-of-reach windows at the top of cathedral ceilings or large bay windows over garden tubs. Fabric choices are plentiful. Available in a variety of colors and textures from traditional linen to a contemporary sunscreen, Silhouette Shadings complement any home decor.
As with any state-of-the-art product, Silhouette Window Shadings by Hunter Douglas carry a higher price point, making them an investment in quality window treatments in line with Plantation shutters.
