Should I Choose Modern Sheers or Shades

Should I Choose Modern Sheers or Shades?

Modern sheers and shades make an excellent addition to your décor, no matter which you choose. Deciding on which window treatment will work the best for you can sometimes be difficult but don’t worry. The experts at Window Magic Blinds and Drapery have experience helping customers make the right choice for both ambiance and function. When it comes to choosing between shades or sheers there are a few things to consider:


Modern sheers don’t resemble the sheers of long ago. In fact, except for the sheer material, you wouldn’t see a resemblance at all. Hunter Douglas sheers and shadings include the following products: Luminette®, Silhouette®, Pirouette® and Nantucket shadings. These products are available in a wide assortment of materials including the Alustra® line that offers the most unique options. The difference between these sheers and other shades are the vanes that tilt open and closed. Sheer backing is always present which filters the light and allows a soft ambiance to penetrate the room. With vanes that you control, you can adjust how much light and how much privacy you have. Modern sheers are elegant and add a beauty to the room that is unsurpassed. Horizontal and vertical options allow you to cover every window in the room regardless of the size.


Shades unlike sheers more resemble a traditional shade in some respects but totally leave you with a variety of options that are more modern and altogether different. You have choices between Honeycomb shades, Roman shades, Woven wood shades, roller shades and more. The multitude of fabrics available leave you with all you could ask for when it comes to matching your décor to capture a look you’ll love. Colors, textures and beautiful designs allow you to enjoy the look of shades no matter what your design styles are. Unlike sheers, there are no vanes to tilt. You can however raise and lower your shades to obtain varying degrees of light and privacy. Fabrics can be sheer or opaque to create the mood you want. Even energy efficient honeycomb shades are available in a translucent fabric to allow the ambiance of filtered light.
