SelectBlindsCanada's Room Darkening Sheer Shades and Horizontal Light Filtering Shads combine all the best features of horizontal blinds with those of window shades. They are made up of two layers of sheer fabric that enclose adjustable fabric vanes (slats), which cuts out direct sunlight but still allows visibility to the outside. You can control how much visibility you have to the outside by opening or closing the vanes. Sheer Shades add contemporary elegance to any room and are available in both light filtering and room darkening models. As with all blinds and shades from SelectBlindsCanada.ca, these include free shipping, lifetime warranty and a satisfaction guarantee.
