Similar to horizontal silhouette shades, luminettes are the perfect solution for large uncovered windows in your home. They combine the elegance of soft sheers with the intriguing visual effect of vertical blinds. They also provide instant privacy if desired, since the vertical vanes can open and close.

This high-quality window treatment is versatile and beautiful, ranging in various colors and sizes. Motorized versions are available for additional convenience and appeal, but the wand attached to manual shades makes opening and closing much easier than treatments you'd have to pull up and down.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS   Ask Tom  
   
Q:  

These curtains look very much like the sheer curtains is there a difference between sheers and luminette?

 
    Asked on 9/16/2013 by Sharyn from Manhattan  
 
       
A:  

Yes there is a difference. 

Luminette is made of sheer fabric just like sheers but it has another layer of solid veins that can turn 180 degrees and create privacy. (Luminette is also called Privacy Sheers)

Luminette can be made from a variety of selected fabrics all made by Hunter Douglas.

Here is a sample of Luminette: (room view and close up)




Sheers are made from only sheer fabric and do not have veins that rotate. They can be made from any fabric and the level of privacy they provide is determined by the opacity of the fabric selected.

Q:  

Can luminette blinds be combined and installed in the same room as silhouette?

 
    Asked on 11/1/2013 by Nadine from Manhattan  
 
       
A:  

Luminette sheers and Silhouette Shades are similar in their construction. Hunter Douglas carried similar fabric colors and textures so when placed one next to each other the overall design theme is the same.

Here is a sample of how Luminette looks adjacent to Silhouette:
