Innovative Window Sheers to Open Up Your Space

Window sheers have been around for ages, but that doesn’t mean they’re dated. Like any window treatment, window sheers have evolved with the times, always offering fresh styles that remain contemporary. Some styles, like the Hunter Douglas Silhouette® Window Shadings, combine several window treatments into one for an innovative style designed to impress and make life comfortable. Sheers are a lightweight option that’s perfect for minimalistic homes, but even if simplicity isn’t your style, window sheers are worth your consideration. Sheers are a fantastic option for opening up small spaces. They allow for plenty of soft, natural light while preserving privacy and UV protection. And, with more options for customizing than ever before, you’re sure to find the perfect sheer to suit your tastes. This month, at Don’s Drapery Service, we’re taking a closer look at a few of our favorite window sheers and why they’re worth the investment.
