Luminette Window Shades- Reimagine Light with Pefect Sheers

Luminette Shades - Reimagine Light
24 Apr 2020
Large windows that open up the home to natural light and views is the dream most homeowners have. While large windows could be a blessing, finding coverings that are able to shield the room from the harsh effects of the sun’s rays, but that still looks beautiful and stylish, isn’t always an easy proposition.
Given the vast expanses that may need to be covered, vertically-oriented blinds are an obvious choice, be they windows, or sliding glass doors. And if you have the latter, the main thing to ensure is that the blinds move in the same direction as the glass doors themselves.

Sheer Perfection

Finding a balance between privacy and light is the holy grail for what we do, and with the Luminette Shades, soft, vertically rotating vanes have been attached to the back of the sheer fabric. By combining the delicate beauty of sheers with the drama of drapes, this window treatment has been designed to draw the light in and disperse it deeper into a room, helping illuminate your home naturally.

What’s more, the vanes can rotate 180°, giving you the ability to direct light where you want. And when rotated to a closed position, you can enjoy the privacy afforded by traditional draperies. For added sleekness, the blinds can be completely stacked on one side or split in the middle to be drawn on either side of the track. Luminette Shades are the perfect choice for wide expanses of glass, sliding doors, and other vertical applications.

Key Features

System Hardware – We think about every last detail when designing and engineering our products. The hardware system features a sleek concealed rail with the exclusive SofTrak™ system. When the sheers are drawn shut, the SofTrak system is concealed within the headrail and covered by the fabric for a refined, elegant look.

Sheer Fabrics & Textures – Luminette sheers are available in a wide array of fabrics, textures, and colors, so it’ll be easy for you to either match or create decorative accents with your upholstery or soft furnishings. A room-darkening option is also available, should you prefer that.

Protective Screening – Sunlight can be warm and welcoming, but if there is no protection from the harmful effects of UV rays, furniture, flooring, and soft furnishings could be damaged. So in addition to view-through and privacy, our products offer ultraviolet protection to help counter the harmful effects of UV radiation, even when the vanes are fully open.

Control Light With A Light Touch

Having beautiful and stylish window coverings will amount to nothing if the operating system brings a cluttered appearance to an otherwise clean look. There are three easy-to-use operating systems available that maintain the clean lines and minimalist feel of the Luminette range:

PowerView Automation – With a motorized operating system like Powerview, you can schedule multiple settings for the vertical window blinds, no matter the time of day or night. These can be operated from home with the Pebble Remote Control, by pressing a couple of keys on your mobile phone, or through voice activation when integrated with a smart-home system, or through the Powerview App, the shades will move to its designated setting.

That’s the beauty of a system that received the Red Dot Design Award in 2018, the most prestigious award in the world of design.

Traveling Wand Control – For the vertical blinds in the Luminette range, the need for looped, pull cords have been eliminated, replaced instead with a single safety wand that easily traverses the sheer drapes and rotates the vanes.

Combination Wand/Cord Control – Also built with safety in mind, the standard chain and cord has been replaced by a combination wand/cord in this system. It consists of a single control to draw the sheers open or closed, and rotate the vanes to create the ambiance you require.

The Last Word
The uniqueness of Luminette Shades is that they have the look of sheer drapery, with the bonus of vertical fabric vanes that can be rotated to suit your needs. These vertical blinds create long lines that make a sweeping statement about the window openings they have been created for. Everything from sliding glass doors to bay windows looks prettier with our vertical blinds, especially with the operating systems designed specifically for easy use.
