3 Popular shades for light-control and privacy options
04 Nov 2022
At the heart of every home is a beautiful, functional window that lets in the light and keeps us connected to the outside world. But with so many shades on the market, how do you know which is suitable for your home?

Darker shades are an excellent way to create privacy. Light-control shades can also help you keep your house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by blocking out light and heat.

If you want your home to feel more spacious and brighter, opt for a lighter shade like "White," which provides almost complete light control and can also provide some privacy if drawn closed.

Consider these three popular shades if you want privacy and light control options.

Three shades for light control and privacy

Honeycomb shades

Duette® shades are the most versatile, customizable window treatments available. They're designed to fit your windows, even uniquely shaped ones like arches and circles.

And there's so much more! Duette® shades come in a vast range of pleat sizes, fabric types, color options, and light control—and you can also choose from a wide selection of textures.

Duette® shades are engineered to be energy efficient, too. With Duette® Architella, you can even get a honeycomb within a honeycomb for maximum energy efficiency!

Luminette® Privacy Sheers

If you’re looking for a window covering that doesn’t block out the sun but still provides privacy, Luminette® Privacy Sheers are an excellent option. They’re called “privacy sheers” because the slats or vanes extend from top-to-bottom instead of left to right, as you would find in horizontal blinds.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers are a premium product and one of the best alternatives to curtains. They combine the soft romance of sheers with the drama of drapes. The fabric vanes can rotate on their axis to give you the perfect balance between light and privacy.

Roller shades

If you’re in the market for a new window treatment, chances are good that you’ve heard of roller blinds. Roller blinds are energy efficient, easy to use, and look great in almost any room in your house. They’re popular because they offer several benefits over other window coverings. 

In fact, with so many styles and colors available, it can take time to know which is right for you. That’s where we come in!

We have everything you need at Hunter Douglas to find the perfect roller blind for your home. We have a wide variety of options, including traditional roller blinds, plus some innovative new products like Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades. 

These combine the energy-efficient construction of cellular shades with the clean lines of standard roller blinds so you can get all the benefits of both styles without sacrificing style or function!
