Sheer Value: Hunter Douglas Window Shadings

Windows are often referred to as the eyes of a home. Choosing how to fashion a naked window is therefore of great importance. Depending on your needs and aesthetic preference, a variety of options are available, from shades to shutters to sheers. So how do you choose?

Thanks to design innovators at Hunter Douglas and Centurian Window Fashions, the leading names in custom window fashions, your job just became a lot easier. Products like Silhouette window shadings and the company’s streamlined, more casual product line, Nantucket window shadings, achieve a supreme marriage of form and function.In a flawless design, both the Silhouette and Nantucket product lines combine sheer fabric facings with soft fabric vanes suspended between them, allowing for a soft, sheer look and optimal control over light.

Sue Rainville, director of marketing for Hunter Douglas, enumerates their advantages:

Light Control

The vanes can be tilted to any position so as to provide the precise amount of desired light.


The soft fabric vanes float between two sheer facings, infusing the room with evenly distributed light.

UV Protection

The sheers layers provide UV protection while still permitting light and a view.


Silhouette and Nantucket window shadings are available in a wide choice of colour combinations, varying opacities, vane sizes and innovative lifting systems.

Child Safety

Silhouette window shadings are now offered with the LiteRise cordless lifting system and neither Silhouette nor Nantucket shadings have cords running through them.


The industry-exclusive Lifetime Guarantee instills confidence.
