What’s a Designer Screen Shade?

Designer Screen Shades are one of several roller and solar shade offerings from Hunter Douglas. We always recommend folks that get a lot of sunlight in their home to check out our Designer Screen Shades because they’re a top choice for those who need UV protection for their interior without compromising their gorgeous outdoor views. We’re no stranger to gorgeous views in the Beehive State, and we love that we can offer our customers top-notch products that cater to the unique needs of Utah homes.

It’s for these reasons that we love recommending Designer Screen Shades for our customers’ patios and sunrooms, but they truly are ideal for any light-filled space. Designer Screen Shades from Hunter Douglas are by far one of our favorite window treatments to install, but they may not be right for every home or every room. Below we’ve outlined some of the pros adding screen shades to the windows in your home.

Pros of Designer Screen Shades

  • Sustainable options: One of the newest fabric editions to the Designer Screen Shade line from Hunter Douglas is Greenscreen Sea-Tex™ fabric. This fabric is made of yarn that’s engineered from recovered coastal and marine plastic, meaning you can install a window treatment you can feel good about in more ways than one.
  • UV protection: Designer Screen Shades are one of our top choices for Utah homes that get ample annual sunshine. These shades can block between 86% to 99% of the sun’s harmful rays, depending on your fabric choice. These shades do an amazing job at protecting your home’s interior from UV damage, including your furniture, flooring, artwork, among many others.
  • Glare reduction: Designer Screen Shades have excellent glare reduction qualities due to their light filtering power. They easily cut glare and can even reduce the amount of heat that’s absorbed in your home during the scorching summer months.
  • Versatility: They’re available to be custom made in a number of different shades and textures. The available fabrics are organized by openness factor, which is the density of fabric that affects visibility, privacy, glare, and UV blockage. If you prefer a fabric that offers more visibility, you can also always pair your Designer Screen Shades with Design Studio™ Side Panels & Drapery for added privacy when needed.
  • Contemporary look: Designer Screen Shades offer a gorgeous, contemporary look to any room. Their design capabilities are extremely versatile for many types of decor. Designer Screen shades can also be customized to include top treatments that will conceal the fabric roll for a clean look, as well as bottom treatments that include fabric-wrapped options. These customizations can add an additional layer to the sleek look these shades provide.
