Spotlight Focus: Silhouette - Normandeau Window Coverings

Spotlight Focus: Silhouette

At Normandeau, we’re not sure we’ll ever get tired of highlighting Hunter Douglas products. From the Luminette to the Vignette and Pirouette, we’ve talking a lot about these stellar window coverings. Today we’re going to discuss another Hunter Douglas product: the silhouette.

Over the years, silhouette has been popular with homeowner all over Alberta, and it’s no surprise. The silhouette is a great looking window covering, it comes with many of the same features we love about the other Hunter Douglas products we’ve highlighted, and the silhouette has a little extra to offer as well.

Control the Sun.


Using Hunter Douglas’s signature s-shape design, silhouette is designed to give you complete control over the amount of sunlight entering your home. When left open, natural light softly diffuses past to two layers of sheer fabric. Your house is bright but without any harsh glare. Silhouette’s sheer fabrics also cut harmful UV rays by a minimum of 75%. Think of the silhouette as sunscreen for your home. It’ll help to protect your floors, furniture, and artwork from fading and sun damage.

Silhouette A Deux.


A brand new innovation from Hunter Douglas, the silhouette a deux combines everything we love about silhouette with a room-darkening roller shade. The shade is attached on a single head rail behind the silhouette. This brilliant combo brings all the beauty of the silhouette with the option to choose from three light intensities: translucent (through the two sheer fabric layers), light dimming (using the magic of the s-shape silhouette design), and room darkening (the attached shade makes it easy to watch a movie or nap during the brightest parts of the day).

The shade is controlled using your choice of PowerView™, LiteRise®, or EasyRise™ technology, and it’s invisible behind the headrail when completely raised.
