Sheer Shades

At Blind & Shutter Gallery St. Petersburg, we have proudly served the area for the past 20 years! One of the styles that has seen growth in that period is our selection of sheers and shadings. Modern sheer shades combine the aesthetic of a sheer curtain with the practical functionality of blinds. We’ve put together a list of benefits of sheer shades, and we’d love to help you select the perfect Hunter Douglas sheer shades for your home.

  1. Light Filtering: Many spaces in your home require both light and privacy. Opening an opaque window covering like drapery or blind will allow in excessive sunlight and compromise your privacy. A sheer window shade will allow you both light and privacy, as well as protecting your interior from UV rays.
  2. Aesthetic Appeal: You want all areas of your home to look as beautiful as possible. The right sheer window shade can add a delicate whimsy to a room with a high-contrast color scheme. Sheers can also add softness and texture to a formal room to make it feel more welcoming.
  3. Interior Protection: The UV rays produced by sunlight will prematurely fade and discolor your interior furnishings, floor coverings and other items. By diffusing incoming light, sheer shades also reduce the amount of UV rays entering your home.
  4. Increased Privacy: If your home has a window facing a busy street or an adjacent residence, traditional window treatments make you choose between natural light and privacy. When you have sheer shades, you can enjoy both.
  5. Cost-Effective: The lightweight fabrics used to make sheer window shadings are much more affordable than heavier fabrics or materials like natural hardwood. If you have a large expanse of windows, it will be far more affordable to outfit them with sheers than other window coverings.
  6. Versatility: One of the biggest advantages to window sheers is their versatility. They can be the solo window covering or be combined with traditional drapery or curtains. When combined, you can pull back the drapery to allow in natural light, but still enjoy privacy.

Choosing a Material

The best materials for window treatments are durable, fade-proof, and easy to maintain. High-end polyesters are a great choice as they are very easy to clean. Cotton and linen will give your windows a sophisticated look, while silk or chiffon provides elegance and luxury.
