Alustra® Duette® Honeycomb Shades near Nashville, Tennessee (TN), that offer light control and UV protection.

Pirouette® Window Shadings

Summers in the Nashville area can bring up some conflicting feelings. On one hand, the days are gorgeous, and spending time outside often seems like a great idea. However, the humidity can often change your mind!

However, you can still enjoy spectacular views of the outdoors without heating up your home with direct sunshine when you add Pirouette® Window Shadings to your windows. This clever collection of custom summer window treatments features a layer of light-filtering fabric to block UV rays and reduce glare – all while preserving your natural views.

You can optimize your views even more with the available ClearView® sheers option, a new feature for Pirouette® Window Shadings. And no matter what, you’ll love the way the floating fabric vanes look on your windows.

Designer Screen Shades

You simply can’t talk about summer window treatments without mentioning this luxurious collection of custom solar shades. Designer Screen Shades will look great on any window in your home, but where they really shine is when you install them outdoors on your deck or patio. Available in weatherproof fabrics that block UV rays, your new shades will look stylish and provide light-filtering for years without deteriorating, even in the unpredictable Tennessee climate.

After all, what are evenings in the South without sipping some sweet tea while watching the sunset? When you install your custom solar shades, you’ll get to sit in comfort while enjoying your view – assuming you brought the bug spray that is.

And when you add these stylish shades to your home windows, you can choose from a wide range of premium fabrics and fun patterns, elevating the style of each room.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

You may know of these shades for their reputation of keeping homes warm during the winter, but the insulating effect benefits you during the summer as well. Duette® Honeycomb Shades also have a few other tricks up their sleeve.

One of the most impressive features of these energy-efficient shades is that you can actually install them on your skylights. The SkyLift™ skylight system allows you to attach your cellular shades to your skylights while keeping them flat against your windows. And when you add PowerView® Automation to the equation, you’ll have summer shades that you can use to cover your skylights in an instant.
