Revamp Your Home with Modern Window Shades

Revamp your home with modern window shades, vertical blinds, custom window shades near Anchorage, Alaska (AK)

Window treatment is an often-overlooked way to give any living space a facelift without a complete overhaul of the entire room. Drapes, blinds, shades, and shutters are all window fashions that can change up any atmosphere. Typically, people think of shades as a simple roll of fabric or even as a temporary solution, but we at Exciting Windows challenge that notion with an array of Hunter Douglas shades, including the innovative Silhouette® and Pirouette® lines of window shadings. Each of these products boast unique designs and quality-enhancing features that help you get more out of your window fashions than simply utility decoration.


This popular window shading is constructed of an innovative S-shaped vane suspended between two sheers. It combines the functionality and elegance of sheers with the appeal of classic, horizontal blinds. Silhouette® allows plenty of filtered natural light to fill your living space with giving you optimal view-through so that you can enjoy an unobstructed surrounding landscape; maintain privacy and a home that feels open and connected with the world. Choose from a variety of luxurious designs, including styles curated specially for the Alustra® Collection. Bring the high-end, designer feel of carefully selected styles to your home, making your windows feel especially crafted for you and your home. With an expansive collection of vane sizes paired with plenty of patterns, textures, and colors to choose from, it’s easy to make your desired aesthetic and tone a reality. Use the power of color to set the mood by choosing rich, cool shades for a calming atmosphere or warm neutrals to open up a room with buttery sunlight. Silhouette® is perfect for adding visual interest with a shade that appears to be floating, always opening and closing gracefully. For the ultimate experience, pair your Silhouette® shades with PowerView® automation. Program your shades to open and close on a schedule you set, even when you’re away from home. Control your shades totally hands free using your voice and compatible Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple technology. Not only can you finally take control of those hard to reach windows, but you can also control your home’s lighting with ease without having to painstakingly adjust every window by hand to your desired lighting.


Like the Silhouette®, Pirouette® features front-facing fabric vanes to create a combine appearance of both shades and horizontal window blinds. With Pirouette®, you can customize your home’s lighting with adjustable vanes, giving you more precise light control compared to a classic shade. As they open and close, Pirouette® retains and elegant appearance as the vanes all move together in a fluid motion thanks to Invisi-Lift™ technology. The Alustra® Collection boasts an expansive collection of unique fabrics each with customizable patterns and colors. Combine reddish and yellow-toned designs to give your living space a twilight glow. Even when closed, Pirouette® features a sleek profile, making it a great choice for pressing out those long summer daylight hours. Enhance the Pirouette® light-blocking technology by choosing darker shades. Pirouette® also pairs with PowerView® automation that is sure to impress and make your window treatment feel even more luxurious. Program customizable Scenes to maximize the amount of natural light in your home as the daylight hours fluctuate throughout the year. And don’t let the sound of automation fool you; PowerView® is built with your home in mind. You’ll never have to worry about unsightly batteries or cords that take away from the beauty of your new window treatment. For a low-tech alternative to PowerView®, try the EarlyRise™ system constructed of a continuous loop designed as a simple and low-profile way to smoothly operate your Pirouette® window shadings.
