They are easier to operate, clean and maintain than regular fabric curtains. They also offer dimmed or diffused lighting which can fill your rooms with a warm glow and not harsh light. They come in horizontal or vertical shadings, and can be rolled up or pushed to the sides like regular curtains. Whether you choose horizontal or vertical shadings, they offer semi-sheer, translucent and light-dimming functions just like regular curtains.

The shades or blinds you use should add aesthetically to your home. Whether you choose regular fabric curtains for your drapery, or some different combination of wood and poly shutters, wood and faux blinds or Roller shades apart from customized designer window treatments, it should complement your décor to be pleasing to the eye. It should also be functional, useful and practical.

There are three main models of window shadings, namely Pirouette, Silhouette and Luminette.

Pirouette: As the name indicates, it offers unmatched flexibility and control options which can be mixed in different combinations to protect your expensive furnishings, wall arts, carpets, leather sofas and other curios. The Pirouette range comes in 4” or 5” folds and offers multiple options for controlling the light that enters your rooms. The range offers the choices of white knit polyester or woven polyester for your shades. These blinds offer great customization to protect your expensive furnishings and art work from ultra violet damage.

Silhouette: The Silhouette range is available in eight different fabrics and combinations, and is available in 2”, 3” or 4” vane sizes. The distinctive features of the Silhouette range are, as the name indicates, specialized shapes to fit any room, motorized controls that offer brilliant combinations for controlling the shadings, and hands free operation. The sheer fabric louver prevents 99% of ultraviolet damage to your fine upholstery fabrics, art work and rugs and carpets. This range is also available in white knit polyester and woven polyester.

Luminette: The Luminette range, as the name indicates is most suitable for large windows or a row of windows or glass walls.
