Custom Sheer Horizontal Shades for Home or Office
Sheer horizontal shades are perfect if you want an elegant look that bathes rooms in soft, relaxing light. If you want to diffuse the light from the outside and still enjoy the view, you may be looking for sheer horizontal shades. These shades soften up the light entering any room of your home and look quite modern. Custom sheer shades have delicate, translucent fabric that allows for a gentle filtering of natural light, preventing harsh glares while preserving the sense of connection to the outside world.
These contemporary-style shades include two layers of sheer fabric with a fabric vane in-between. You can increase your privacy by pulling the cord to rotate the vanes closed. During the daytime, the shades panels can be left open to enjoy a veiled view of the outside, and at night, you can enjoy privacy by closing the slats. Whether it's in the living room, bedroom, or even the home office, window sheer shades can help establish an atmosphere that encourages relaxation and peace of mind.
The Benefits of Sheer Horizontal Shades
Our customers choose horizontal shades because of the following benefits:
Popular Features & Upgrades for Sheer Horizontal Shades

- Room Darkening
Set the right tone for your with room darkening options to get the right amount of light in your room. There is no blackout option for sheer horizontal shades.
Sheer Window Shades Are Perfect in Smaller Rooms
When properly installed, sheer fabric shades can also enhance the perceived spaciousness of a room, giving the illusion of a larger, more open area. This quality makes them particularly popular in smaller spaces, as they can contribute to a more airy and expansive feel, even in rooms with limited square footage. Their minimalist design avoids adding unnecessary visual weight to the room by allowing natural light to filter through the sheer fabric.
They Are Also an Excellent Choice for Larger Rooms
With larger rooms, sheer shades can help eliminate the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces. If enjoying your outdoor views is important, sheer window shades can reduce glare from large windows without severely limiting the amount of light coming in. They can also be combined with a more opaque or a full blackout blind if you want privacy at night or when you are out of the home.
Sheer Shade FAQs
Are Sheer Shades Suitable for Rooms with High Sun Exposure?
Sheer shades do offer light filtering capabilities. Whether they are the right choice comes down to the level of opaqueness you choose. If you are concerned about too much glare or UV light coming in, you may want to explore sun shades with a low openness of 5% or less.
Do Sheer Shades Come in Different Colors?
Generally, sheer shades are available in options that are more neutral-colored. This is especially true when compared with roller blinds or roman shades, which offer just about any color or pattern one can think of. That being said, sheer window shade colors usually involve variations on white, beige, blue, grey, sage, yellow, and pink.
Are Horizontal Shades Right for Me?
If you want a window treatment with unparalleled beauty that allows light into your rooms, you may want sheer horizontal shades. Sheer shades offer a modern look and combine the functionality of blinds with the beauty of fabric shades. The shades can be tilted to any angle to give you further control of the light that enters your room.
Keep in mind that sheer shades aren’t the most energy-efficient, as the sheerness of the fabric doesn’t insulate the windows as effectively as other shade choices, such as cellular shades. They do not come in a blackout option, as other shades do. You can still have privacy, though, by tilting the fabric vane of the shades closed.
