For more than a decade, at Reef Window Treatments, we have been installing window covering solutions for residential and commercial properties across the South Florida region. Our partner, Hunter Douglas, is a renowned company that specializes in the fabrication of fine window dressings. Hunter Douglas designs luxury shades, blinds, and shutters, as well as window sheers and shadings. Discover our Hunter Douglas Shades collection below to give your space an improved look and feel.
Silhouette® Window Shadings feature soft adjustable fabric vanes that appear to be floating between two sheer fabric panels that beautifully diffuse harsh sunlight. Simply tilt the vanes to achieve your desired level of light and privacy. Learn more about Silhouette® Window Shadings.
Our innovative Pirouette® Window Shadings feature soft horizontal fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing. This allows for enhanced views to the outside while maintaining privacy and the full beauty of the fabric on the inside. Learn more about Pirouette® Window Shadings.
For wide windows and sliding doors, our Luminette® Privacy Sheers come in an array of sheer and drapery-like fabrics for unlimited light-control and privacy options. Learn more about Luminette® Privacy Sheers.
Similar to blind and shades, sheers and shadings provide privacy, light diffusion, and style to your windows; they can be installed as standalone dressings or combined with drapes and curtains. For the most part, sheers and shadings present a softer appearance when compared to blinds and full shades. The fabrics used by Hunter Douglas for shadings and sheers are specifically engineered and crafted to block sunlight and offer protection against ultraviolet rays. Unlike blinds and solid curtains, sheers and shadings diffuse light instead of blocking it.
There are two lines of Hunter Douglas shadings: Silhouette and Pirouette. These two shadings feature horizontal fabric vanes that can be adjusted for privacy and natural illumination. The Silhouette ClearView system is recommended for panoramic windows that provide views of the water or nature; the Duolite system is better for maximum privacy and darkening. Pirouette shadings look more like blinds, but they are softer and can be cut from a variety of decorative colors and patterns to match the interior design. Both Pirouette and Silhouette shadings are ideal for designer kitchens.
The Luminette line of sheers is perfect for spaces where you want to combine the styles of vertical blinds with the soft texture of fine curtains. You can’t go wrong with these Hunter Douglas sheers; they are often installed in floor-to-ceiling window structures such as sliding glass windows that connect to covered lanais and Florida rooms. When the vanes of these sheers are fully extended, the backing manages to diffuse the light and provide some privacy. When the vanes are fully closed, you get an effect similar to that of a fine curtain. If your interior design goals are aligned with minimalism and discretion, Hunter Douglas sheers are the way to go. As for the headrail system, it is designed to be completely out of sight.
In case you are undecided about whether sheers or shadings will look better in your home or office, the interior designers at Reef Window Treatments will be more than happy to help you. Please feel free to contact our office in the Florida Keys if you have any questions about our products or the installation process.
