Can't decide between blinds and shades? Don't compromise—get the best of both worlds with sheer shades. These unique and beautiful window treatments are a combination of both blinds and shades. Like traditional window blinds, they feature vanes that can be angled to let in light or block it out while protecting privacy. And like traditional shades, they feature solid pieces of fabric that span their entire length.
Another distinct advantage of sheer shades is their light-filtering qualities. Because the vanes float between two layers of transparent fabric, sheer shades are perfect for letting soft, diffused light into your home without exposing yourself and your family to the harsh sunlight, UV rays, and lack of privacy that comes with bare windows or fully raised window treatments. However, they also offer the same functionality as standard shades and blinds and can be raised and lowered with ease.
Sheer shades are a great fit for any room in your home, and if you're thinking of buying them, read on to learn more about your next purchase from Blindster.com:
Many homeowners assume that sheer shades are exclusively for light filtering purposes and that they're not very effective at darkening rooms. However, utilizing different combinations of vanes and fabrics during the manufacturing process means that sheer shades can also be great for darkening rooms and even eliminating around 95 percent of light and UV rays from entering your home. If you're interested in sheer shades with the greatest amount of light control, you'll love our 2" Deluxe Room Darkening Sheer Shades.
If you love the look slats on wood and faux wood blinds, you'll be happy to know that our selection of sheer shades has the same 2" horizontal vanes as a blind does. And just like wood and faux wood blinds, the vanes on sheer shades can be rotated to block light and provide privacy, or to allow light into the room and provide view outside.
There's a lot to love about sheer shades, but one aspect many of our customers enjoy the most is how soft they are. The layers of knitted fabric encasing the interior vanes are remarkably soft and plush, making these window treatments a joy to view and touch. The soft fabric also plays a role in the quality of light that enters your home. Because the fabric is made of such high-quality material, you'll get a consistent and unobscured diffuse light in every room in your home where these window treatments are installed.
If you're looking for a consistent look and design for window treatments throughout your home, you can't go wrong with sheer shades.
