What are Sheer Shades?
Hunter Douglas Silhouette sheers utilize sheer fabric vanes that precisely stack to allow customized control over incoming light and privacy. The lift system enables the vanes to rotate open for light filtering smoothly or closed for total blackout when desired. The system can calibrate the exact amount of openness versus privacy. The lightweight, luminous design and variety of color/pattern options create an upscale yet breezy aesthetic that is perfect for any style.
Key Benefits of Silhouette Sheers

- Cordless lift system for safety and smooth operation
- Light diffusion and insulation for energy efficiency
- Designer colors/patterns to suit any décor

Why Silhouette Sheers Suit Various Window Types
Oversized and Oddly-Shaped Windows
Silhouette sheers are an excellent match for huge windows or uniquely angled skylights. The precision engineering allows the vanes to stack tightly and smoothly ascend, descend, and tilt even on grand-scale or awkward windows where most shades struggle. Silhouettes provide complete coverage while minimizing light gaps.
Door-Style and Corner Windows
The adaptable design characteristics and coordinated appearance of Silhouette sheers make them ideally suited for French doors, sliding glass doors, and corner windows. Since doorways and corners often require two adjoining shades for a seamless look, the styles and components of Silhouette sheers are designed to complement each other perfectly. Cordless lift enhances safety and convenience as well.
Arched, Round, Palladian, Bay, Picture, and Bow Windows
These window types’ ornate shapes and angles can be challenging to cover stylishly. But Silhouette sheers’ customizable tracks, mounting options, and component pieces enable a flawless fit and beautiful look. The shades can be layered or extended for bay, picture, and bow windows.
Small, Compact Windows and Bathrooms
Silhouette sheers allow small spaces like bathrooms to feel open and airy while providing sun/privacy control. The lightweight sheer fabric and streamlined design maximize visibility and natural light without dominating the room. The smooth lift system maintains a clean, clutter-free aesthetic.
- Transom windows – Silhouette sheers can be stacked higher to account for transom space above
