Adding Soft Lighting to Homes

With summer nearly upon us, you may notice some changes. For example, the days are getting lighter, the sun is brighter, and the temperatures are starting to climb. While this makes for a great day at the pool, having hot, bright sunlight constantly beating down on us can get quite exhausting. This is especially true if we let the sun constantly stream into our home. This can make our homes feel like an oven instead of a place to escape the heat! If you decide that your shades are not cutting it when it comes to the intense summer sun, then we have some good news for you! Hunter Douglas offers two shades that provide soft lighting all summer long. Read on to learn how you can go about adding soft lighting to homes with Silhouette® Window Shadings and Pirouette® Window Shadings.

Silhouette® Window Shadings near Denver, Colorado, from Hunter Douglas for soft and beautiful lighting

Silhouette® Window Shadings

Silhouette® Window Shadings offer both light and privacy, making them an excellent addition to your windows this summer if you are interested in adding soft lighting. These Hunter Douglas shades also feature soft, adjustable S-shaped vanes that appear to be floating between two sheer fabrics for a lightweight look that is easy to operate. Whether you want a subtle hue that blends in or something that stands out, these shades fulfill any design need and dream. Plus, thanks to its two-in-one design, Silhouette® Window Shadings let you enjoy softly filtered light and privacy at the same time. 

Silhouette® Window Shadings also have another benefit that you are sure to enjoy. In addition to filtering out brightness and glare, Silhouette® Window Shadings block out damaging UV rays. Depending on your fabric choice, these shades can filter up to 88 percent of the sun’s harmful rays. This ensures that your home’s interiors will remain safe from sun damage throughout the years.

Pirouette® Window Shadings

Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Window Shadings are another excellent option to consider when adding soft lighting to homes. Boasting clean lines and a straightforward design, these Hunter Douglas shades are perfect in any sort of home. Considered as a modern alternative to a traditional fabric shade, Pirouette® Window Shadings are a beautiful addition to any window.

These Hunter Douglas shadings also feature softly contoured, front-facing vanes attached to a single sheer backing. This creates easy operation and a fluid effect when opened and closed. To enjoy your views, simply raise these shadings. Since they disappear completely into their headrail, these shades offer an unobstructed view for a clean, crisp look. For privacy, simply close the shades. As with Silhouette® Window Shadings, Pirouette® Window Shadings provide UV protection.
