One of the more recent innovations in window covering products is to combine the functions of sheers and blinds. The result is daytime privacy with sheers that soften the light and screen UV, plus, complete nighttime privacy by simply adjusting the vanes. Shadings and privacy sheers eliminate the need for heavy second layer drapery!

Window shadings:  Hunter Douglas Silhouette window shadings have adjustable cloth horizontal vanes sandwiched between two layers of soft sheers.  The newer Pirouette shadings resemble Roman shades when closed but adjust the control and compress the vanes and expose a sheer layer (image 4).  Shadings are available for large windows and have the advantage of retracting into a cassette for an unobstructed window.

Privacy sheers, such as the Hunter Douglas Luminette, have the soft, sinuous look of a traditional sheer without pleats or base hems. Built-in adjustable vertical vanes behind the sheer adjust for night time privacy. Privacy sheers can cover wide spans seamlessly and come in several fabric textures. Brands of shadings and privacy sheers offered include: Hunter Douglas Luminette,  Lafayette SheerVisions and Alta privacy sheers.
