How Can Pirouette Shades Transform Your Living Space?

When looking for shades to install in your home, you want a combination of three things - a visually appealing design that offers a beautiful view of the outside world while providing you with privacy when you want it the most.

With the plethora of shades available in the market today, choosing one that meets these qualities and transforms your living space can be overwhelming.

However, one of the most exciting choices you can make is the Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shades.

Read on to learn more about these shades, their benefits, and how Spokane Blinds can help you install them in your home.

What Are Pirouette Shades?

This new window-covering option features contoured fabric vanes that float on a sheer backing. The unique sculptural design of these shades takes the harshest sun rays and transforms them into warm, diffused light. You can close the vanes for complete privacy or open them to let light in and get a beautiful view of the outdoors.

The shades feature an innovative design that better meets your needs. Whether you want privacy, to improve the appearance of your living space, or to enjoy the view of your outdoors, this unique window-covering option is a great choice. It has attached horizontal soft vane fabrics that you can semi-close or close to keep light out and sheer face fabric to let sunlight in.

These shades can be installed in windows of all shapes and sizes. From large and small windows to angled or curved shapes, anyone can enjoy the bold and modern look these shades provide.

The Benefits Of Pirouette Shades

These unique window shades have quickly become a popular choice for many homeowners. This is because they offer numerous benefits, including:

Opacity Control

Traditional shades don't offer homeowners any opacity control. They're designed to be opaque, meaning no light comes in once you close them. Similarly, when the shades are open, all the harsh sunlight comes in, which makes it impossible to control the amount of light glaring in your home.

With the Hunter Douglas window covering option, you have total opacity control. You can open the fabric vanes fully to let light in, semi-close them for a bit of privacy while allowing sufficient light to come in, or completely close them for total privacy.

Softly Diffused Light

The sheer fabric diffuses harsh light coming into your home for a warm and soft ambiance. This helps reduce glare and soften shadows. It also protects your furnishings from the harsh UV rays that can cause discoloration, fading, and wear and tear. If you want to protect your interior from the adverse effects of sunlight and enjoy a softness that's peaceful and calm, consider installing these unique shades.

Easy To Operate

The shades come in three different operating control systems, all of which are easy to operate. They include:

EasyRise: This is the simplest and most straightforward control system, and it features a single loop, which you pull once to open the shades and pull again to close them.

UltraGuide: This more advanced operating system uses a retractable cord to raise, lower, or tilt your shades. This way, there are no long, dangling cords that are unsightly and detract from the appearance of your home. The UltraGuide system is quite useful for homeowners with pets and children since long chords pose a threat to them.

PowerView Motorization: This operating system is the ultimate in smart home convenience. It automates the raising, lowering, and tilting of your shades based on the program you set. If you want your shades to open every day at 8.00 am and close at 5.00 pm, you can easily schedule it through PowerView. The system can also re-position your shades throughout the day.

Classic Styles

The beauty of these shades is that homeowners can choose the style they want. So, whether your house is modern, contemporary, chic, bohemian, or minimalist, you can select a shade style that matches or complements your interior decor. There are 63 different shade styles and fabrics to choose from to suit your preference, aesthetic, and needs.

Additionally, you have the option to choose different fabrics for different rooms. For example, in your bedroom, you may want a darkening fabric that keeps out light, creating the perfect environment for sleep. Alternatively, in your living room, a light fabric that lets in warm light even when the shades are lowered is an excellent choice. Whatever needs you have, you are sure to find a shade style that meets them with this window covering option.
