In this fifth video in the series, “Make Windows Happen,” we’ll discuss the consideration of opacity when planning your window treatments. Different shades and blinds offer a range of opacities, from room-darkening to soft light-filtering. Each of the seven videos in this series will cover a key topic: proper mounting, evaluating your windows, child safety, automated systems, opacity, planning the entire room, and budgets.
When planning your window treatments, a key consideration is whether you want a shade or blind that completely darkens the room, lets light in but affords privacy, or somewhere in between with soft, diffused sunlight. Light-filtering qualities are determined by type of treatment, such as a blind or shade, and its material, like wood versus a sheer fabric. Whether you choose shades such as VIGNETTE® Modern Roman Shades or SOLERA® Soft Shades, offered in both sheer or room-darkening opacities, or modern blinds such as SILHOUETTE® or PIROUETTE® Window Shadings, which combine the look and function of traditional blinds with the style and fabrics of a shade – you’ll find a variety of window treatments in a huge range of fabrics, wood and hybrid materials at JC Licht. Learn more on opacity from JC Licht window treatment expert Ron Bryza in the video below.
