FAQs About Sheer Window Shades

Sheer Window shades are the elegant combination of shades with the functionality of blinds. The soft inner vanes behave like a blind by tilting open and close. Their smooth and delicate appearance makes them the ultimate shade for any room, versatile in both design and light control.

But when you’re planning to install sheer shades for your windows, so many questions come to mind. At ZebraBlinds, we can help you find the solutions. If you face any difficulty while purchasing, our design experts will help you to customize your window coverings to best fit your room.

Below are the top ten questions that will help you choose your Sheer Window Shades:

#3. What is the difference between Sheer Vertical Shades and Sheer Horizontal Shades?

Custom Sheer Vertical Shades

Vertical sheer shades and blinds work well in larger windows, where they offer a sophisticated and dramatic look. But Horizontal sheer shades can be used easily in any room.

When your sheer horizontal shades are entirely closed, you may be able to see some of the views outside your home while still blocking some of the sunlight and enjoying your privacy. Sheer vertical shades protect your indoors from direct sun glare and direct UV exposure, but if you want to have the privacy, use them with other window coverings.

For this, the best solution is Graber Sheer Shades. When sheer window shades are completely lowered, you can tilt open the vanes on the shade to open up the view. This unique mechanism lets you enjoy the natural light.

#6. What are Zebra Sheer Shades?

Zebra Sheer Shades

Zebra Sheer Shades are produced from a particular style of horizontal two to three-inch-wide room darkening or light filtering band and two and a half inch sheer band material. These light filtering sheer shades that let light into the room even when the shades are closed while the room darkening fabrics reduce the amount of light and help you to darken your room.

Zebra Sheer Shades can close and open without raising the sheer shade; allowing you to enjoy the sunlight while maintaining your privacy. It can be closed or opened by adjusting the dual layers of sheer panels that hold the light-filtering vanes. During daytime, if this sheer shade is in the closed position, the shades will filter light.
