The Pirouette Shade by Hunter Douglas is one of the most unique and beautiful window treatments on the market. It is able to provide beauty, practicality, functionality and a bit of jealousy from your friends. :)

Pirouette Shade Bottom Panel

There is one aspect of this shade that I want to go over with you to make sure that if you purchase the Pirouette Shade you will not be surprised at. That is the bottom panel. If you look at the photo of the shade in the video, you will notice that the panel of fabric at the bottom, is larger than the louver size of each of the bands that go across the Pirouette Shade.

As I mention in the video, this is not a problem, but instead it is just a fact. The product is made from the top of the shade. Each panel attaches at the top of the headrail in exactly the same way. This means that based on the height, the bottom panel will either be non-existent or will have to be up to 4 or 5 inches high.

Hunter Douglas is aware that their Pirouette Shade has this as a reality so they offer what is called the “Zero-Panel” option. Here is how that works. Note that it is only available on their Outside Mount Pirouette Shade.
