Sheers & Shadings

Mornings in the Bay Area may sometimes start foggy, but we have plenty of sunny afternoons. The UV rays from the bright sun can wreak havoc on the interior of your home. The sun can fade and discolor your furniture, decor, floors, and walls. That is why it’s crucial to have a high-quality window treatment on every home window. At Window Fashions of Northern California, Inc., we carry the best window coverings for every situation.

Hunter Douglas sheers and shadings are a fantastic option for homes with a view. These window treatments combine sheer curtains and opaque vanes to give you superior UV protection and light control.


Superior Light Control

Each Hunter Douglas sheers and shadings features a light-filtering sheer curtain. You can open this curtain to allow in natural sunlight or close it to create an aura of gently diffused light in your room. In addition to the sheer curtain base, our window coverings feature opaque blind vanes that can rotate up to 180 degrees allowing you to control the amount of light entering your home. This mixture of vane control and sheer curtains gives you more lighting options than any of our other window treatments.

Block UV Rays, Not Your View

Northern California is a beautiful place, and sometimes you want to enjoy the view outside your window. With the vanes open on our sheers and shadings, you can see the view outside while still blocking the UV rays that might harm the interior of your home. We even carry a specialty fabric, which is designed to provide you with UV protection and an unobstructed view.

Fully Customizable

Hunter Douglas window treatments are known for their high-quality materials and customization options. We have over 60 different fabric options for our sheers and shadings, including colors, opacities, and patterns. Each different style has a similar fabric collection so that you can coordinate window coverings throughout your entire home. Our expert team also measures your windows and cuts every sheer and shade to fit perfectly.

Easy Operation

When it comes to opening and closing your sheers and shadings, we make it safe and easy. We have several window treatment operation options, including cords, wands, cordless, and motorized. You can choose the mechanic that best fits your lifestyle. We also over PowerView® Automation which gives you fully automated control over all the Hunter Douglas window treatments in your home.


Pirouette® Window Shadings

If UV protection is your priority, you will want to choose these window coverings. The sheer curtains available for Pirouette® Window Shadings include fabrics that block out 81% of harmful UV rays with the vanes completely open and 99% with the vanes closed. These shades also feature a single sheer backing which means they also have the best view to enjoy the outside.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers

Not all windows in your home are the same. Luminette® Privacy Sheers are vertical window treatments perfect for expansive or very narrow windows and sliding glass doors. The fabric selection of Luminette® Privacy Sheers perfectly complements both Pirouette® and Silhouette® shadings, so you can mix and match the vertical and horizontal treatments without compromising your aesthetic style.

Silhouette® Window Shadings​

With no cords or tapes, the sheer facings allow you to view through the vanes to the outside, while maintaining a discreet level of privacy.
