SEASON OF STYLE SAVINGS EVENT SEPTEMBER 10 – DECEMBER 5, 2022
Sew Beautiful Windows > Blinds > Light Control Solutions

Natural light elevates absolutely every room in the home. But, we don’t want our windows wide open at every hour of the day. Numerous options offer privacy and light control to perfect the aesthetic of your room and match your taste.

When You Need Some Privacy on Your First Floor

Hunter Douglas  Sheer Shadings  such as Silhouettes, Nantuckets, Pirouettes and Banded Shades allow filtered light into the room while preserving the view outside.  These are perfect for main living areas, large picture windows and sunrooms.  Screen Shades come in varying opacities. They are great option to cut down heat and glare, working especially well on windows that face the water.

When You Need Flexibility

Plantation shutters  are simply classic and provide hands-on power to adjust your window’s light-permitting potential. Opt for a hidden tilt and wide louvers to maintain optimal view. Or, with a divider rail or split tilt, the top louvers operate independently from the bottom, allowing customizable privacy without blocking all the light. 

When You Need to Sleep

Hunter Douglas  Honeycomb shades  such as Duette and Applause come in semi-opaque and room darkening fabrics. Pull them down for privacy and to darken a room. With minimal stack, they raise completely up to disappear and blend with the frame of the window.  Roman Shades can be fabricated with a light filtering or room darkening liner offering a beautiful and functional treatment.

When You Can’t Reach

For those hard to reach windows, consider motorized shades . With the push of a button or even a voice command to Alexa, you can easily raise and lower your shades.
