Luminette® Privacy Sheers & Silhouette® Window Shadings

Using Light in Your Room

Today, lighting is one of the most changed elements of design we have, and we need to learn “How to Use It.” You can control light with the addition of window treatments. The materials and opacities you select will provide different effects, for example:
