Sheer Shades for Windows
Sheer shades are one of our most popular window treatments here at Affordable Blinds, as they blend the elegant and modern look of window shades with the traditional look of blinds. With horizontal fabric vanes and a sheer overlay, the way that these shades operate is very similar to that of horizontal blinds.
When the vanes on your sheer shades are tilted to the open position, you get a wonderfully warm and filtered light. However, even beyond their modern practicality and aesthetic elegance, sheer shades have quite a bit to offer.
If you’re wondering whether sheer shades are the right choice for your window treatment needs, make sure to continue reading to find out more.
Total Light Control
With sheer shades on your windows, you get a unique way to gently diffuse natural light coming from the outside. Not only do you get the beautiful and natural light from the sun, but you also get a warm and soft glow that floods nicely into your space, regardless of the time of day. If you’re looking to block a bit more light out, you might want to consider going with room darkening sheer shades.
Do keep in mind that room darkening and blackout shades are not the same things by any means. Light will filter in during the day, though the majority of the light that comes from the outside will be blocked out.
We highly recommend going with room darkening shades if you are looking to get window treatments for your bedrooms, media rooms, nurseries, or any other room where having a bit more light control is necessary.
Tons of Lift Options
It is very easy to customize your sheer shades here at Affordable Blinds. Plus, you have tons of cool options to choose from. One of the most popular ways that people approach customizing their sheer shades is with the lift option. All sheer shades come complete with continuous cord loop designs, which makes operation easier than ever. However, if you choose, you can always upgrade your sheer shades to take advantage of the motorized option.
With motorized sheer shades, you can tilt your shades open and closed from another room. We highly recommend going with a motorized option for your sheer shades if you have windows that are hard to reach. Motorization can also be great if you have physical limitations that keep you from opening and closing your window shades with ease.
With a single remote, you can easily control up to five shades at once, making it easy to light up your room with the single click of a button.
Getting rid of unsightly cords not only gives your window shades a cleaner and more modern look, but also provides more safety for homes with small children and pets. Cords can be a choking hazard and getting rid of them completely, especially in window treatments that are easily accessible for children and pets, is crucial.
Sheer Shades Provide Aesthetic Versatility
Design-wise, sheer blinds are one of the most versatile window treatments around. They provide a unique combination of modern and traditional designs, perfect for a wide range of styles. Two of the most common styles we see fitted with sheer shades include:
● Traditional Style: Thanks to the fact that sheer shades are very functional from a traditional standpoint, they are great for homes with a more traditional design. Sheer shades provide the look of a curtain with more versatility. Thanks to the fact that they are made with high-quality fabric, you get the feel of a curtain with the modern convenience and feature set of sheer blinds.
● Coastal Style: There are many things that come to mind when you think of the coastal style. Some of the terms that might pop into your head include, light, breezy, and beautiful. Sheer shades are all three of those. They are made to provide rooms with a soft and natural glow during the day, even when the vanes are open in the middle of the day.
Sheer Shades Are Easy To Clean and Care For
Sheer shades might have a delicate look, though that does not mean that they aren’t sturdy or durable. Cleaning and caring for your sheer shades is just as much of a breeze as the breezy design they capture. It is important, however, that you keep your sheer shades out of the way of harsh elements. Salty sea air, oils from your kitchen, or moisture from your bathroom, can all cause the fabric on your sheer shades to break down much faster than normal.
Finding The Right Sheer Shades For Your Needs
Bringing a timeless style and a touch of sweet elegance to any room with sheer shades is easy. Of course, you don’t want to break the bank just to get your hands on a quality set of sheer shades, right?
