Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shadings
With sunnier and longer days on the horizon, we’re reminded of our love affair with light. But like any relationship, there are times when one may get on the other’s nerves. With bright daylight comes glare, and better nighttime visibility often results in increased light pollution. Luckily, there is an easy way to minimize these negatives – custom window treatments.
Blockout Light Pollution
Light pollution caused by streetlights, outdoor signs, full moons and other exterior sources can cause a restless night’s sleep. Just ask Brooklyn residents about the city’s newly installed LED streetlights – the blue glare from these energy efficient bulbs is causing community-wide sleep deprivation. Sounds like a city in need of some black-out window treatments!
Hunter Douglas Provenance® Wood Shades With Blackout Liner
For maximum room darkening effects, we recommend choosing window treatments in opaque fabrics and constructed with minimal light gaps, seams and rout holes. If you need occasional room darkening, opt instead for a blackout liner available on most roller shades. The liner can be sewn directly to the face fabric, and for ultimate flexibility, operate independently of the outer decorative shade.
Minimize Daylight Glare
Has glare on your TV ever prevented you from watching your favorite show? Or has the sun ever caused your flooring or furniture to fade? Then you’re in need of some light filtering window treatments.
You don’t need to go total blackout to protect your possessions from the harmful effects of the sun. Sheer window treatments are an excellent way to soften incoming light, reducing glare and filtering out harmful UV rays.
Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades
To make your viewing experience more enjoyable, outfit your windows in coverings that offer room darkening benefits like shades and blinds. Or consider black-out window coverings for media rooms and man caves.
The Best Solution
For optimum light control, we recommend laying multiple window treatments. By pairing shades and blinds with custom drapery, you can achieve superior versatility, allowing you to adjust your window coverings to match all your light control requirements, from soft filtering to total blackout.
