The Best Window Shades with Landscape Views

The term window covering can sometimes be misleading. Window treatments don’t have to cover up everything. There are many options that will solve common window issues like harsh glare and privacy, but still allow for soft light and beautiful landscape views. We’ve chosen 5 of the best window shades for your home when you want to enhance the view. Let’s take a look. 

#1 The Silhouette

Topping the list of the 5 best window shades is our Silhouette Collection. This group of favorites will enhance the view and lighting with its airy vanes and effectual view-through capability. In addition, with custom features like ClearView®, you can achieve a sharper view while filtering harsh sunlight. Also available is the Halo™ feature, adjusting vanes up or down to add more light control.

#2 The Pirouette

If you love a “WOW” factor, the Pirouette is the product for you. When closed, enjoy the look of a roman shade. As it rolls open, the shade disappears into the headrail and out of sight. Magic. In the lowered position, reveal the view by adjusting the vanes to open, & watch as the fabric folds orderly into place. The softened light that enters is cozy and energizing; these are the best window shades indeed.

#3 Luminette Privacy Sheers

Sheer treatments are an industry favorite, but are they popular enough to be on our list?  They sure are. The collection offers that familiar look of sheer draperies, but with folds that act like window shades. When Luminette Privacy Sheers are in their ready position, simply rotate the vanes and block out the world. It’s an amazing feature to have in your home.
