What Rooms are Best for Sheer Shades?

Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Sheer Shades

The thought of sheer shades may conjure the image of French doors opening to a view of the ocean with sheers blowing in the breeze, but this image is far from the versatility of custom sheers shades today. 

We have some cold, dreary months in Chicago and the Midwest, and the sunlight is essential to keeping spirits high while we wait for spring. This means your window treatments must allow lots of natural light while offering ample privacy. Sheer shades are beloved because they provide the best of both worlds and are an exquisite accent to every room. 

Kitchen Shades for Soft Light

Privacy may not be paramount in your kitchen, but it’s still nice to know your neighbors don’t see you in your bathrobe. Sheer shades gently diffuse light to create a warm, welcoming breakfast nook, and early risers will appreciate the glare reduction provided by sheer fabrics. You may be ready to take on the day, but you do not want to wear sunglasses while sipping your coffee. For a well-balanced design, sheer shades also soften the hard lines and flat surfaces in modern kitchens.

Sheer Bedroom Curtains for Lightand Privacy

Many store-bought shades only offer light when fully open or privacy when fully closed; there’s no comfortable middle ground. Custom sheer shades are ideal for providing both light and privacy. Get ready in the morning with soft morning light and privacy. Enjoy your favorite book on your comfy bed with plenty of natural light and without passersby seeing inside your windows. Adjustable fabric vanes allow for enhanced privacy, and sheer bedroom curtains add elegance when paired with heavier drapery

Sheer Shades for Functional Living Rooms

The Midwest is known for its friendliness, and we’re proud of that. Make your guests feel at home with the subtle sophistication of sheer shades. More than just good looks, sheers also bring exceptional protection from UV rays to protect your wallpaper and furnishing from fading. Natural light creates the illusion of space, making sheer shades the idyllic design component in smaller rooms. The lightweight fabric also nicely contrasts masculine décor, including stone, metal, and other sturdy elements. 

Versatile Sheer Shades for Any Room

We all know that certain design elements often look better in some spaces than others, but that’s not the case with sheer curtains. Sheer curtains blend well with any interior design style, from traditional to contemporary and everything in between. You don’t have to default to sheer shades in neutral colors; We encourage you to explore darker hues to create an unexpected aesthetic in your home. If you’re redecorating and haven’t decided on a design for the space, sheer shades offer a seamless transition from placeholder to permanent decorative accent.
