Why Buy Sheer Shades?
Is it a window blind? Is it a window shade? The real beauty of our window sheers is that … they’re both! Beautiful and Best for Kids (thanks to our free cordless and motorized-wand lift options), sheers combine the functionality of both window blinds and window shades. Like the popular Hunter Douglas silhouette treatment, our sheer blinds are made with horizontal fabric slats that appear to “float” between two layers of soft, translucent fabric. The result? A dreamy, high-end designer look that gives any window a more dramatic edge and rooms a cool, contemporary vibe.
You can tilt the slats to open and close them – just like traditional blinds – while the sheer fabric stays in place, gently filtering light to give spaces a soft, elegant look while filtering out damaging UV rays. And like all of our window treatments here at Select Blinds, all of our sheer styles come with cordless lift options for safer, more streamlined ease of operation.
Make these elegant sheer fabric treatments your own with a variety of neutral to bold-colored textures and patterns, complemented by cassettes with color-coordinated fabric inserts to cover the headrail. Then choose from other custom features, including:
Light Control Fabrics – Want to fill your space with a soft glow, but still let in lovely, natural light? Choose a light-filtering sheer fabric to gently diffuse it and show off your interiors in their best light.
If you want a little more light blockage, choose room-darkening sheer window coverings – a great solution for media rooms, baby’s room and home theaters.
Slat Sizes – Our sheer window treatments come in three slat size options – 2”, 2½”, and 3”. We suggest 2” slats for smaller windows for a balanced, cohesive look. Two-inch slats lay flatter and closer to the window, so they’re perfect for windows with narrow sills, too.
For a more unobstructed view through your shades, try 2½” slats. They’re ideal for medium-sized windows, but make quite the visual impact on small windows, as well.
Covering larger, wider, or deeper windows? Three-inch slats really raise the design bar while giving you the widest view to the outside.
Child-safe Cordless Lift Systems – Child-safe Cordless Lift Systems – All of our horizontal flat sheers feature a cordless motorized wand for worry-free, child-safe operation at no extra cost. Raise, lower and tilt the slats with a simple touch of a button. For the most in modern convenience and luxury, lift your window treatments from up to 65 feet away without lifting a finger by with a motorized remote-controlled lift. In addition to safety and convenience, cordless motorized lift options give your sheer window treatments a clean, classy, streamlined finish by eliminating loose or dangling cords.
