The Magic of ClearView

Do you love to soak in your gorgeous outside view? What if you could enjoy it–without the issues brought by bare windows? Wait till you experience ClearView for window shades! This dynamic innovation is here to give you the luxury of enjoying a brighter, true-to-life version of your outside view. A majestic view, with all the benefits of shadings. Let us introduce you to our newest favorite!


Introducing ClearView

Our original Silhouette shades have front and back sheer fabrics. In between, fabric vanes are suspended, adjusting from nearly invisible to all the way closed. They offer control over light and privacy. Many homeowners like to keep Silhouette shades lowered down, yet “open.” This means all you’ll see is the sheer view-through, a beautiful landscape and illuminated interiors.

So, what does ClearView add to this? Just wait! It’s an even better, crisp, clear view of the outdoors. The rear sheer fabric is transparent black, giving you the view you want, with light and privacy control.


The Dynamic Benefits

The amazing view is one of the top benefits of ClearView. Just like shutters, you get the maximum view-through, but with added protection.

Sheers diffuse the incoming light, offering UV protection to your home. They also reduce glare, which means your space is illuminated, without feeling overbearing. The vanes can be adjusted for customized light control, allowing you to enjoy the natural light inside without the frustration of bare windows.


Traditional or ClearView?

If you like the look of the traditional Silhouette shades, don’t worry! They’re not going anywhere. ClearView is simply a dynamic view-through option for the windows in your home where the view is the highlight of the space!

If you’re more concerned about privacy, go for the traditional Silhouette. Experience a filtered view-through, as they bring in a beautiful glow.  Illuminate your home with great daylighting with either choice.

Whether you choose traditional Silhouettes or ClearView, you’ll be able to customize every room’s environment.


See the Difference

Take a look at the comparison for the outside view. The traditional Silhouette, on the left, can be compared to ClearView–on the right. The original Silhouette fabric better hides the interior, while the ClearView makes it more apparent. The best part about having both options is being able to customize your space however you’d like. We’ve got questions you can ask yourself if you’re trying to decide which sheer fabric is right for you…

Do you want a soft, filtered view? The traditional sheers will be the best choice. Is there a gorgeous landscape you want to be able to see throughout the day? ClearView will give you just that. The best part? You can have both–even in the same room depending on the individual needs of the space.
