The Hunter Douglas Silhouette DuoLite is one of the best choices for luxury window treatments. Why do I feel this way? First, please watch the video and then I’ll add some details.

As you can see, the Hunter Douglas Silhouette DuoLite provides so many great options in terms of light control and view-ability. You have the option of having the window be completely open when the shades are rolled into the headrail. You can lower the front shade down, which offers two main positions.

  1. Closed Vanes- This option is the privacy setting while still allowing light to filter through the vanes. This is why the Hunter Douglas Silhouette comes in so many choices of fabrics. The texture of the fabric can be seen as the light comes through the weave of the material. It makes the Silhouette a very beautiful product.
  2. Open Vanes- Now with the shade in its lowest position, which is where the vanes go to their open view positioning, you can see through. You have different options too of what the sheer looks like. Most people in Reno and Tahoe are choosing the ClearView sheer facing to maximize the view.

Finally, with the Hunter Douglas Silhouette with DuoLite, you can lower the room-darkening roller to provide more darkness to the room. Keep in mind that this is NOT BLACKOUT. It darkens the room substantially, but quite a bit of light can come around the DuoLite portion of the shade. If you need complete darkness, please speak with your window fashions expert to determine your best option.

Offered with full automated features

Because you have the option to have so many choices, the Hunter Douglas Silhouette DuoLite is a great choice for a premium product. It is not what we call a “Value Product”, but it is like 3 separate shades in one, so it does provide amazing options at a reasonable price. Is it a good choice for you?
