Innovation Alert: Dual Sheer Shades

It’s powerful: The lighting in your home. The right balance of sunshine with sun protection is key to creating the ideal atmosphere. And, even more than that, the ability to customize and change the lighting based on circumstances is vital to enjoying your home to the fullest. Already offering immense benefits, sheer shades are a great way to soften the light and enhance the view. With the latest innovations, Dual Sheer Shades take that perfect lighting one step farther.


What Are Dual Sheer Shades?

Sheer shades can be defined as window shades that invite filtered light for a softened atmosphere, while also showcasing your landscape views. By adding Duolite to sheer fabrics, the control increases in a big way. You can soften the light, but you can also block it out with a secondary blackout roller shade. Or, simply choose a shade that offers those on/off & anywhere in between qualities for lighting. Let’s explore…

It’s Time to Pick Your Favorite…


Silhouette Window Shades

Very popular, many homeowners recognize the look of Silhouette Shades (and Nantucket shades, too!) Two layers of sheer fabrics are joined with fabric vanes that can “float” in the middle for complete view-through, while soft light enters. Adjust the vanes, and the light begins to change. Dual sheer shades extend the control, with a secondary blackout roller shade, all within the same headrail.

Pirouette Window Shades

Full of dynamic style, the dual sheer shades feature is the essence of the Pirouette. It’s one shade that’s capable of sheer view-through, all the way to room darkening. The sheer backing is revealed when the fabric vanes fold in place. Choose room darkening fabrics when you want the full range of control.

Designer Banded Shades

These shades are truly art at the window. Choose the style, from striped fabrics to geometric shapes, made with alternating solids & sheers. The two layers rotate to bring in filtered light and views, or block out the view and the lighting. One of the best parts is that they can transform the space in an instant with a simple shift.

Designer Roller & Screen Shades

When you consider the most simple of window coverings, do roller shades come to mind? The sleek, low profile design makes them a favorite. Now, extending the control is easy with dual shades. The front shade can feature a view-through opacity to soften the light and offer a beautiful view. Drop the secondary shade into position, and room darkening becomes the reality. Using a shared headrail, these shades still won’t overwhelm the space.

Vignette Modern Roman Shades

Not often thought of as a sheer shade option, the latest innovation to come to roman shades is the dual shade feature of Duolite. Pair a light-filtering opacity for the front shade, while the second shade brings room darkening options. That roller shade shares a headrail with the roman, creating a dynamic duo of light control and beauty!
