What do you look for in a window covering choice? If you’re like most people, you’re looking for a combination of three things – something that is visually attractive to the interior space, something that provides you a beautiful view of the outside world, and something that provides you with privacy when you want it the most. While there are many different options available, one of the most exciting choices on the market today is the Hunter Douglas Pirouette window shades.

What are Pirouette Shades?

This new window covering option is designed from contoured fabric vanes on a sheer backing. The vanes can be opened or closed to better meet your needs. A three-dimensional window covering, they can be installed on windows of all shapes and sizes, which is great news if not all of your windows are rectangular.

The Unique Benefits of Pirouette Window Shades

Wondering why this option is becoming more popular? Many people buy pirouette shades because they offer some unique benefits other window covering choices just don’t.

Opacity Control

With traditional window coverings like blinds and shades, opacity control just isn’t possible. They’re opaque, so the light doesn’t come in once they’re closed. If you open them, the light comes in completely. While you have some opacity control, typically it’s not as much as you’d like to have. Hunter Douglas Pirouette window shades are quite different in this regard. The fabric vanes that make up this covering can expand to close the shade, which provides privacy and a bit of diffused light. They can also be contracted, though, to give you a clear view of the outside world.

Easy to Operate

With Pirouette window shades, you can choose from three different control options, all of which are incredibly easy to operate. The EasyRise choice is a single loop. Pull once, and it will lift your shades. Pull a second time to close them. If you’re concerned about children or pets, you can select the UltraGlide control system. It raises, lowers, or tilts your shades with a retractable cord. You can also select the PowerView Motorization option. With a remote control or your phone, you can decide just where you want your shades and how much opacity you want in the room.

Classic Styles

One of the best parts about Pirouette Window shades is the fact that you can select the type of fabric you want, so no matter how you’ve decorated your home, these were designed to match. Hunter Douglas has 63 different color swatches available to make sure you get the right choice to meet your needs. More than that, though, you can choose from light filtering fabrics for those spaces where you want some soft light even when these shades are closed and room darkening fabrics so you can bring a bit of extra color into the room when they’re closed. Either way, they’re going to look absolutely amazing on your windows.


Maybe the best part of these window coverings is the fact that they’re a Hunter Douglas product. One of the most well-known names on the window covering market today, these options are going to last until you’re ready to redecorate and beyond. They also come with a limited lifetime warranty to give you added peace of mind. Whether they’re going to be in your child’s bedroom or your family room or in both, this is the choice if you’re looking for durability in your window coverings.
