Luminette® Privacy Sheers

At Bretz Interiors serving the greater Denver area, we’re well aware of how overwhelming the process of buying window fashions can be. Often, that’s because people new to the industry don’t always know the basics. So we’ll provide you with an overview of the terminology below so you can start your shopping experience right.


Drapery is both elegant and classic, and it can stand as its own window covering or can be paired with another window treatment to add dimension to the space. Alive with texture, color, and opacity options, drapery can bring sophistication to any room. Be sure to check out the Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ to see exclusive textiles and fabric pairings, as well as eye-catching hardware and accessories to round out the look at your window.


Elegant, timeless, and stylish, interior shutters are also easy to maintain. They’re available in genuine hardwood louvers or hybrid composite ones, and they come in numerous paint and stain options, so you’ll be sure to match your décor. Because they’re durable, shutters work in a wide variety of spaces. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas include Heritance® Hardwood Shutters and Palm Beach™ Polysatin shutters.


Shades raise and lower to help you control light and privacy in your space. Types of shades include sheers and shadings, honeycomb (cellular) shades, Roman shades, and roller or solar shades. Popular lines from Hunter Douglas are Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shades, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, and designer banded (layered) shades.


Blinds are made with slats you can tilt to control light and privacy, or you can use the lowering and raising feature as well. You can find them in vertical orientation (great for sliders or patio doors); simply traverse or rotate the slats to control light and privacy. Plus, you can enjoy the elegance that this product brings. Popular blinds from Hunter Douglas include Parkland® Wood Blinds, Everwood® Alternative Wood Blinds, and Somner® Custom Vertical Blinds.
