Stop by A Shade Above today to learn more about the benefits of Silhouette® Window Shadings for homes.

Light Control & Privacy

Silhouette® Window Shadings offer the best of everything you’d ever want in a window treatment, combining the elegance of drapery, the privacy of shades, and the light control of horizontal blinds. Specially designed S-shaped vanes seem to be suspended in mid-air by two, sheer fabric panels. This gives you the unique ability to maximize your privacy while allowing the perfect amount of light in. In a dark room, angle the vanes to send light into the darkest areas of your room and drastically reduce the need for artificial light sources. If some rooms in your home are plagued by harsh, direct sunlight, Silhouette® can soften and diffuse it simply by tilting the vanes.

Preserve Your View

If one of the most important things to you is your magnificent view to the outdoors, the last thing you want to do is impede that view with window treatments. Silhouette® Window Shadings are specifically designed to provide clear views to the outside while shielding you from prying eyes looking in during the day. With no tapes or cords to obstruct your view to the outside world, Silhouette® provides maximum privacy with a perfectly unobstructed view.


Available in a wide variety of rich fabrics and colors, there’s no limit to design options with Silhouette®. Choose from one of three levels of opacity, semi-sheer, translucent and light dimming. The new Duolite™ option with Silhouette® combines a room darkening liner behind the shade that can be raised and lowered independently for maximum light control. The Alustra® Collection of Silhouette® is an exclusive collection of designer fabrics, textures, and hardware for those seeking the best in design.


There are so many customizable options when it comes to Silhouette® Window Shadings. Apart from fabric, opacity and hardware choices, these options include three different vane sizes to choose from. Unique window shapes are no problem either. Specialty shapes include arches, angled, oval, circular, bay and corner windows as well as sliding glass and French doors. Also available with Silhouette® is the innovative PowerView® Motorization system.

UV Protection

It’s important that window coverings protect the interior of your home. The sun’s harsh rays can fade or damage flooring, furniture, and artwork. Silhouette®’s unique design can block up to 88% of harmful UV rays in the open position and up to 99% in the fully closed position.
