Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers: A World Apart in Window Sophistication

Hunter Douglas has been a name to reckon with when it comes to innovation and sophistication in window coverings. We are constantly working towards creating window shades that not only provide the best of comfort and style, but also add value to your home by their sophistication and quality.

It is this penchant for creating excellence in window coverings that has led us to create Luminette® Privacy Sheers. These are top of the line window drapes which combine a sheer fabric facing with soft, vertically rotating vanes which are attached to the back of the sheer. This unique combination creates a surreal feel wherein the sheer drapery panels offer desired light control and privacy options in a cheerful manner. These shades are ideal for large glass walls, sliding doors and other vertical usage. 

The smoothly functioning vanes rotate open to unravel a magical diffusion of the sunlight and create a soft and cheerful naturally lit ambience inside the room. You also have the option to rotate the vanes to channel the light to whichever part of the room you want. If you need privacy, all you need to do is to close them and enjoy the same privacy that conventional window drapes can offer. 

As we already mentioned, style with sophistication is a key focus area for Hunter Douglas products. That’s why we have introduced the Luminette® Privacy Sheers in a wide range of trendy fabric options. Thus, you can choose the fabric to suit your taste and interior design. These shades not only love you, but also protect your floors as well as furniture from the UV rays. You can enjoy all these comforts without compromising on enjoying the outside views. We also offer you the option to choose colours and fabrics which can be coordinated with your other Hunter Douglas window blinds or treatments to create a seamless integration of style. 

As we put in our best efforts to create the most stylish window shades for your home, we also focus on creating the ultimate in quality and functionality. The Luminette® is coupled with a sleekly designed headrail which keeps the proprietary SofTrak™ hardware system concealed, ensuring a highly refined and elegant window appearance.

There are multiple options to control your Luminette® sheers including wireless options and automation which allows you to schedule them to move automatically as per your instructions.

Most Essential Points to Consider While Selecting Automatic Window Blinds

The summer is here and the post-pandemic lifestyles make it necessary for us to carefully invest in good quality window shades which keep our homes comfortable, stylish, safe and healthy. The impact of modern homes is not just about the furniture or the interior design, but, today we need to keep in mind the effect of installations like home window blinds on the health, mental peace and productivity as well. 

One of the best things about digital technology and the evolution of smart tools is that we not only have access to customised automation, but can also enjoy a far  superior and effortless living experience. To manage lighting and ventilation inside the home, you can choose smart automated blinds, but, that leads us to the question: what are the things one needs to consider before buying automatic window blinds?

Let’s go ahead and find an answer to this question here

Things to keep in mind before buying automatic window blinds

Light control: Summer in India means hot and really bright days, and that’s where good automatic window blinds play a major role in regulating the flow of light. At present, when you need to work from home as well, it is essential to ensure an optimal balance of lighting. Working for long hours without natural lighting can cause fatigue and monotony easily. However, if the automatic blinds are set to operate smartly, they can ensure soft diffusion of natural lighting and create adequate illumination that doesn’t glare or create dark spots inside the premises. 



This is of greater importance if you are selecting the automatic window blinds for your office. Usage of devices like laptops and smartphones is a constant requirement, but, if the illumination is not automated smartly then the light emitted by the various gadget screens can cause problems like anxiety, high blood pressure and make us frequently feel disturbed.

Hunter Douglas  smart automation solutions give you complete control over the position and movement of the blinds throughout the day and you can control the operation through buttons, mobile app, remote control or even by integrating them to smart home speakers such as Google Home etc. 

Cheerfulness: You might be wondering what cheerfulness has got to do with window shades. Truth be told, window shades can have a major impact on the mood of the people occupying a space and the vibes that they get. Imagine the windows around you being covered by monotone, cheap and standardised window blinds, and compare that with the visual appeal of the windows having charming soft coloured window blinds with floral patterns, high quality materials and stylish contemporary designs. This is where Hunter Douglas automatic window blinds can add great value to your home or office and become a source of cheerfulness for your family, visitors or employees.

Temperature control: Automatic window blinds are popular as energy savers since they can maintain an ambient temperature indoors. They can block freezing winds in the winter and reduce internal heat loss and similarly in summers, they block external heat to keep your air conditioning working optimally. The  thermal efficiency of Hunter Douglas automatic window blinds ensures that the climatic changes don’t force changes upon the mindset or productivity of the occupants at any time. 

Health benefits: Automatic window blinds operate as per the schedule set by you and they cover the windows as well as open up keeping in mind the light settings you store. Thus, you can wake up naturally to the soft morning light and be assured of a good quality sleep at night when the blinds will cover the windows completely to insulate you from external lighting. Thus, your sleep quality improves and you can also enjoy similar comfort in daytime if you work night shifts and need to relax/sleep in the day. 

Further, the automatic window blinds are highly efficient at filtering the UV Rays from the sun which are harmful for our skin and can even cause diseases like cancer. The blinds can be set to smartly move with the movement of the sun and ensure that the UV rays don’t find an inlet into the premises. This keeps you as well as your interior decorations and furniture in a better condition.  

Conclusion

Hunter Douglas brings you a virtually unlimited range of design, size and material options such as Venetian window blinds, roller window blinds etc. Depending upon your usage and budget, you can opt for different colours and materials such as our Country Woods wooden blinds or Precious Metals Venetian Blinds with the revolutionary PowerViewⓇ Automation which can not only optimise your window shades, but, make them one of the best things about your home interiors!

Health benefits of automatic window blinds

This is the age of digital technology and smart homes. With the evolution of advanced technologies and Artificial Intelligence, there is almost no limit to the kind of automation that you can achieve these days. There is mechanism and advanced software driven options available for almost everything in your home such as lighting, ventilation and nowadays there are smart automated blinds which you can use to further enhance the smart ambience of your homes. Automated smart blinds not only add innovation and style to your home, but they also make a positive long-term health impact on the house’s occupants. Hence, it is a great idea to opt for automatic window blinds to improve the wellness as well as peace of mind for yourself and your loved ones.

Let’s take a look at why the Hunter Douglas window blind automation solutions are the perfect choice for your home:



Smart control of light: Natural light has a positive impact on our body and we need natural light regularly, but artificial lighting despite providing illumination can’t make up for it. In fact, constant exposure to light from the screens of our gadgets and other artificial sources can actually cause various health risks such as high blood pressure and restlessness. Not only that, it can also rob you of your peace of mind. Hence, it is important to ensure that your home window blinds are able to effectively control the sunlight that enters the homes.

That’s where our smart blind automation allows you to precisely control the position of the blinds and regulate the light through the various control options such as buttons, smartphone app or remote control etc.



Improved sleep quality: You don’t need noisy alarms to rattle you out of sleep in the morning and there is not going to be the inconvenient or uneven light filtering through the blind slats to disturb your sleep at night. We have smart blind automation systems that can be integrated with blackout roller blinds to create a perfect and peaceful sleeping ambience that ensures the blind remains in place throughout the night. In the morning, the blinds silently open as per the time scheduled by you and allow the desired amount of soft natural light to wake you up gently. The automated blackout window blinds can also create adequate room darkening for people who work the night or graveyard shifts and need to sleep during the day.

UV Ray protection: One of the major health benefits of automatic window blinds is that they can filter the harmful UV Rays from the sun which can damage our skin cells and even cause cancer. The automatic window blinds can be set to move with the movement of sun throughout the day and ensure that the home interiors remain safe from the radiation. Blocking UV rays also improves the life of the furniture and interiors.



Ambient temperature: The automated window blinds are highly popular because they can help in saving energy by maintaining the temperature indoors. In winter they don’t let the homes get too cold and in summer they block external heat. This leads to superior heat efficiency and cosy vibes inside the homes which make a positive impact on the residents. A house that is too cold or too hot can cause stress and depression, but, our smart window solutions ensure that you don’t face such a problem with Hunter Douglas window blind automation. 

These features accompanied by the countless design, size and material options for your window blinds ensure that Hunter Douglas window automation makes your homes healthier and better suited for the new normal in 2021!

There is no way that we would have cut corners on creating one of the safest EOS™  Motorized Drapery Systems for your homes. This system has auto-detect points which allow the draperies to slow down smoothly. You can choose between automatic or manual modes at any time. The Intelligent motor control technology is also equipped with a safety stop option and it is applicable in straight as well as a curved track.

The incredibly beneficial EOS™  Motorized Drapery System is the perfect companion for your feature windows. It can be scheduled to open and close automatically thus ensuring that you wake up naturally to the soft morning light filtering in through your windows and cover them to offer complete privacy after the shadows lengthen in the evening. 
Such a high degree of automation and sophisticated operation of your draperies ensures that there is an added dash of style and ‘wow’ factor to your windows. With the new normal requiring you to spend more time at home, it is important that you equip your homes with this technology and improve your living experience!
