Hey, there, spring! We’re looking forward to warm, sunny days and the flowers blooming in Central Park. The longer days invite people to spend more time outdoors, which can increase your need for privacy. Sheer and solar shades for windows are an excellent way to enjoy privacy without sacrificing your view, and we have many exciting window treatment options for your New York City apartment.

Solar Shades for Windows in NYC

Solar shades are a worthy investment if your apartment has windows facing east, west, or south. Also known as solar screens, these shades share the design features of roller shades but serve a different purpose. Instead of using woven fabrics or vinyl, solar shades use a mesh-like material screen to reduce glare, UV damage, and heat without leaving you in the dark. Five fabric opacities and hundreds of colors give you nearly endless options for the perfect ambiance, and a dual roller design option makes your shades even more versatile.

Sheer Vertical Blinds in NYC

What can we say about sheer vertical blinds? We’re obsessed. Sheer vertical blinds have ethereal appeal but are still heavy hitters regarding performance. The fabric vanes flow gently in the breeze like drapery but enhance natural light instead of blocking it. Tilt the vanes 180 degrees to find the ideal combination of sunlight and daytime privacy. Sheer vertical blinds are a fantastic solution for sliding glass doors and sidelights. Pair them with sheer shades to create a cohesive design throughout your NYC home.

The Delicate Beauty of Sheer Shades

The gentle light diffusion of sheer material is not exclusive to vertical blinds. Enjoy the benefits of exceptional UV protection and adjustable light control on standard and specialty-shaped windows with sheer shades. Soft, adjustable vanes attached to a sheer panel bring subtle texture and visual interest to a space. Sheer shades are available in an extensive range of colors so your windows can be a high-contrast focal point or blend in with their surroundings. No matter what interior design you favor, you can incorporate sheer shades. They’re an ideal accent for industrial, minimalist, mid-century modern, and many other aesthetics.

Automatic Window Shades

How can you improve the fantastic appearance and unparalleled performance of solar screens and sheer shades? By equipping them with PowerView® Automation. Enjoy the convenience of motorization that integrates seamlessly with your smart home system so you can control your shades with an app, a handheld remote, or basic voice commands.
