Luminette® Privacy Sheers Buying Guide
29 Jul 2020
If you have wide windows or patio doors and you are looking for a modern window covering (popularly known as window blinds) then Luminette® Privacy Sheers are one of your best options. Luminette® Privacy Sheers are called so because its slats or vanes extend from top-to-bottom instead of left-to-right like you would find in horizontal window blinds. Since Luminette® Privacy Sheers open up in the left-right direction (or vice-versa), they automatically become a good choice for wide or extra wide windows and patio doors. If you have been wishing to buy Luminette® Privacy Sheers, you must consider all the below factors before taking a decision.
  • Key reasons to buy Luminette® Privacy Sheers
Premium window blinds such as Hunter Douglas’ Luminette® Privacy Sheers combine the soft romance of sheers with the drama of drapes. This makes them a great alternative for curtain lovers. While the sheers diffuse light beautifully in the room for a bright and cheerful space, the fabric vanes can rotate on their axis to give you the perfect balance between light and privacy. When opened completely, the Luminette® Privacy Sheers gather to the left & right side of the window pane thereby offering an unobstructed view of the outside. Depending on your mood, you can stack Luminette® Privacy Sheers in:
  • Left stack

  • Right stack

  • Split stack

  • UV protection
Having wide & extra windows means the furniture, electronics and the carpet in your room is constantly exposed to the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun. The constant exposure to ultraviolet rays harms your furniture and electronic gadgets. The sheer fabric in Luminette® Privacy Sheers prevents this harm by blocking harmful UV rays.

  • Shape of track
If you have a L Shaped window, then Luminette® Privacy Sheers are a good choice which work well on straight tracks as well as L shaped tracks.
  • Selecting the right vane size
The vane size of Luminette® Privacy Sheers doesn’t depend on the window size. The standard window pane size of 3½ inches fits windows of all sizes.
  • Fabric design, textures & colours
As always, this is one factor that is completely dependent on you. There are plenty of choices available in the design, texture & colours of fabrics. Spend plenty of time considering your options and ensure that your choice fits the style of your apartment and is exactly as per your taste.
  • The operating system
The operating system of your Luminette® Privacy Sheers will determine how much you enjoy them. Here too, you have plenty of choices to consider:
  1. Manual operation - If you prefer to operate your shades manually, you have two choices:
    • Combination Wand/ Cord - This system provides a single control to traverse and rotate the vanes. By completely eliminating the standard chain and cord, this system thus provides a safer environment for children and pets.

    • Wand Control - Wand control eliminates pull cords completely, replacing them with a wand for enhanced child and pet safety

    • Automatic operation/ Motorised operation - If you are habituated to frequent opening and closing of the window blinds throughout the day, then you must choose the automatic operation system which comes with many advantages. For ex. PowerView® Automation from Hunter Douglas allows you to control or schedule your Luminette® Privacy Sheers through a remote control, through a mobile app and even through voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home.
