The Balance: Privacy + Light

Ideally, the combination of privacy and glowing natural light would offer a comfortable-or adjustable setting for your entryway. When choosing shades, we’ve found the top down feature to be a strong contender because of its access to both.

Levels of Light Filtering

If your entryway faces the sun and you struggle with harsh sunlight, you’ll need constant control. Sheer shades are a great option, they can provide different levels of light protection, from light filtering to light blocking.

A client favorite are the Silhouette sheer shades for their unique look. They cut the glare, adjusting from view-through sheer fabrics, to vanes that close off the view. Most sheers reflect the sun outward during the day to increase the energy efficiency of your home, as well as securing your privacy.

The placement of hardware may affect the window covering products you choose.
