Your Options for Hunter Douglas Shades

Sheers and shadings add a touch of soft elegance to any space. When many people think of window treatments, they think of blinds, and while blinds—particularly if they are made by Hunter Douglas—are a great choice for any homeowner, sheers and shadings are a fantastic option as well that you may not have considered. If you have windows in need of new window treatments and aren’t sure what to choose, the window treatment experts at The Blind & Drapery Corner in Marco Island, Florida are here to educate you about what your options are for Hunter Douglas sheers and shadings.

Silhouette® Shades

Hunter Douglas’s Silhouette® shades are the perfect combination of horizontal blinds and sheer curtains. Silhouette® shades are comprised of adjustable fabric vanes, suspended between sheer pieces of fabric, so that when entirely open, Silhouette® shades filter the light that enters your home beautifully.

The Alustra® Collection of Silhouette®

For homeowners who want the softness and beauty of the Silhouette® shades with a more contemporary twist, the Alustra® collection is perfect. With the same romantic construction as the Silhouette® shade, the Alustra® collection also features a different selection of textures for the fabric, metallic accents for the shades’ vanes, and contemporary selections for mounting hardware, so that your shades can be as modern as you are.


Do you want the beauty that shades provide for your home, but worry that they won’t fit your large windows? Hunter Douglas still has you covered with the Luminette® shade. The Luminette® shade has a similar design style to drapery, and hangs vertically, as opposed to the horizontal vanes of the Silhouette® collection, making them perfect for large windows and even sliding glass doors.

Pirouette® Shades

As with the Silhouette® shades, the Pirouette® shades allow beautiful light diffusion into your home, with a sleek, modern design sensibility. If you want more complete light control from your shades, the Pirouette® shades, when fully closed, look exactly like a modern shade.

The Alsutra® Collection of Pirouette®

Want the modern look of the Pirouette® shade but also want to bring a little glamor into your home? You’re in luck, because there is also an Alustra® collection of the Pirouette® shade. The Alustra® shades have the same variety of light control options as the standard Pirouette® shades, while also coming in a series of reflective, chic fabric choices.


If you want the efficacy of light control and quality of construction that you have come to expect from Hunter Douglas window treatments as well as keep your budget healthy, the Nantucket™ shade is a perfect choice. With a streamlined, versatile design, as well as a reasonable price point, the Nantucket™ shades are a fantastic option regardless of your budget.
