Sheer shades are named such because they have sheer fabric separating the individual blind vanes. The sheer fabric reduces glare while allowing some light into the home, yet adds privacy by blocking anyone from peering inside. This filtering quality along with the elegance that sheer shades add to the home makes them a popular choice with homeowners.
Stunning Visual Qualities of Sheer Shades
Sheer shades are designed to meet the combined needs of light control and privacy. The effect of solid vanes separated by a sheer material makes them an elegant addition to the home. The vanes can be closed as with normal shades which block out most, but not all, light. They can also be adjusted to a more open position to allow extra light in or closed more to cut down glare on televisions, computers, tabletops, etc. while still allowing in some natural light. This versatility is another attractive trait of this type of window shade.
You can purchase sheer shades with a variety of control mechanisms and in different colors, patterns and materials from Solar Windows Fashions.
Sheer Shades as Insulators
Another function of shades is to add a layer of insulation between the inside and the outside atmosphere. Sheer shades provide only a medium barrier to heat and cold because of the nature of the sheer material and the fact that the vanes do not close tightly. However, sheer shades made from thicker material do a better job of providing insulation as well as blocking out light and increasing privacy. Utilizing thick draperies in combination with sheer shades will also increase the level of insulation quality.
