Sheer Shades

Sheer shades are an excellent choice for anyone who is in search of a nice blend of modern, elegant shades and traditional horizontal blinds. The beauty of sheer shades is that they utilize horizontal fabric vanes combined with a sheer-style overlay. You can operate sheer shades just as you might operate any other types of horizontal blinds.

One thing to note, however, is that once you tilt your sheer shades open, you still get a gorgeous light-filtering fabric that sits over the top. Beyond practicality and elegance shades offer plenty of benefits, which is why they are one of our most popular types of window treatments here at Affordable Blinds.

Come on in and take a look for yourself

Our Collection of Designer Sheer Shades

One of the great qualities of designer shades is that they have the ability to diffuse natural light in a very gentle manner. The light that comes through your windows will feel warm rather than harsh. You’ll still get the beautiful light that you are looking for from your windows, though it will be in the form of a soft, warm glow, regardless of the time of day. You can block out greater amounts of light with room-darkening option instead, which are better options for bedrooms or media rooms.

It should be noted that room-darkening shades are not the same as blackout shades, meaning you will get a bit of light that filters in during the day. However, room-darkening shades will block out most of the daylight that comes in during bright hours.

Tons of Lift Options to Fit Your Preferences

When it comes to purchasing a high-quality set of sheer window shades, there are plenty of lift options that you can choose between. You might consider a standard lift system. All of the shades in our collection come with standard continuous cord loops, making up and down operation incredibly easy. If you want, you can upgrade to a motorized control system.

The motorized sheer shade are great for those who want to raise, lower, or tilt their shades without having to get up and make adjustments manually. For people with mobility restrictions or for people who have windows that are difficult to reach, motorized control systems are an excellent choice.

With a single remote, you can control multiple window shades as well, allowing you to raise and lower the sheer shade around the entire room.

Different Sizes for Different Needs

There are a few different vane sizes to choose from, including 2”, 2.5”, and 3”. You’ll get a few different options to choose from depending on how you want your sheer shade to look and function.

Our most popular option is the 2” sheer shade. These shades are a great choice for windows on the smaller side or windows that have very narrow windowsills. The smaller the vane, the more obstructed your view will be, as you’ll have less space in between each vane.

For medium-sized windows, we recommend going with a 2.5” vane. 2.5” vanes provide a less obstructed view to the outside. If you’re looking to make more of a statement or visual impact on smaller windows, you can also choose to go with 2.5” vanes.

For those who have much larger windows, larger window frames, or deeper windowsills, we recommend going with a 3” vane. The 3” vane is an excellent choice for someone considering an inside mount as well. The 3” sheer shade provides the most unobstructed view possible when you have the vanes open.

Looking at Different Styles

From a design standpoint, they are quite versatile, which is one of the reasons that they are so popular. You get a beautiful combination of modern shades and traditional horizontal blinds, neatly complementing just about any style of decor out there.

We highly recommend sheer shades for homes with traditional styles, as they have traditional functionality. They will fit in right at home with any traditional decor, especially if you adore the look of lighter curtains, as they are probably one of the best alternatives around. Because the sheer shade is made out of fabric, get the feel of curtains without having to sacrifice convenience and modern features.

We also recommend the sheer shade for homes with coastal styles, as they are very light, breezy, and beautiful. Your home will always have a soft and warm glow during the day, even when the sun is at its brightest. The light-filtering is done thanks to the fabric overlay.

Easy Care and Maintenance

Of course, every so often you will need to clean and maintain your sheer blinds to keep them looking top-notch. We don’t recommend using in certain environments with high levels of heat or humidity, including bathrooms, kitchens, or garages, as they are more susceptible to mold thanks to the fact that they are made out of fabric.

It is also worth noting they are more susceptible to stains because of their fabric designs as well. If you decide you want to use in your kitchen, for example, we recommend keeping them away from food prep areas so that you do not stain them with food or grease.

With that said, even though our sheer blinds might have a delicate look to them, that does not mean that they aren’t durable. Caring and cleaning for your sheer shades are just about as breezy as how these shades look. Usually, all you will need to have in hand is a bit of soap and warm water to get the job done if you have a stain. Other than that, you can use a simple feather duster to brush over the fabric and keep your shades free from dust and dirt particles.
