Sheer Horizontal Shades are a beautifully elegant, light, and airy window treatment. The soft light creates a beautiful ambient setting and they move almost silently, adding to the peaceful feel. The fabric vanes float between two graceful sheer layers a combination that provides you with absolute control over privacy and light.
The vanes can be rotated, permitting a veiled view of the outdoors and a soft flow of light indoors. Even when open, you have privacy as the sheer fabric diffuses direct views from outside of your home. The layers of fabric in this design allow for a level of privacy at all times, which make them a great option for high-traffic rooms in your home where you still want the option of natural light. When closed fully, Sheer Horizontal Shades become completely opaque, creating total privacy and security.
Sheer Horizontal Shades also help to block out harmful UV rays and harsh glare from the sun without having to completely block your view of the outdoors.
Elite Sheer Horizontal Shades can be ordered in 2” or 3” vane sizes in either light filtering or room darkening fabrics.
Sheer Horizontal Shades are also available with our unique DoorStyles option, which secures the fabric in a stationary position with tilt-only capability. There is no cassette box on top or hanging cords and is a perfect way to dress up side lights, transoms or French Doors.
Sheer Horizontal Shades are a simple and cost-effective option to cover windows in your home while still creating a modern and polished look and are a popular choice for a variety of different spaces. They offer a simple look that can work well on its own or be paired with drapes, curtains or other window treatments to create a more dramatic and personalized look.
All of our Sheer Horizontal Shade fabrics are GreenGuard certified. We also have the option to motorize your shades with Elite Smart Shade™ automation. Having automated shades provides ease of movement, allows for you to remotely operate the blinds and also creates a safer environment for homes with pets and small children by eliminating hazardous cords.
