Sheer to Opaque Window Treatments – What Does It All Mean?

Sheer to Opaque Window Treatments in Palm BeachWindow treatments come in a wide variety of fabrics. Our clients throughout the Palm Beach area often ask for information about sheer or opaque materials, and how to choose the best one for their new window coverings. As your local Hunter Douglas dealer, we can help you make the best selection.

Start by determining what exactly you want your window treatment to accomplish. Do you want to:

  • Block harmful UV rays?
  • Filter out the sunlight
  • Provide privacy
  • Rotate the blind or shade for light control
  • Lift or have the blind or shade off the window for complete view

Hunter Douglas window treatments are rated for how they measure privacy and light control on a scale of 1 to 4.
