Allure 101: What you need to know

Allure® Transitional Shades are versatile for your busy life. Popularly known as zebra shades, for their signature stripes that rotate for different views, Transitional Shades offer nearly endless view options. When you choose Allure®, you’re getting a custom crafted shade that will provide multiple room views with varying light control options, with the shades closing and opening, as well as the vanes. Read on to see how you can ensure this shade choice is crafted to a T for your life.

Personalize your Allure® Material: Vane Style, Vane Size, Color, and Opacity

There are plenty of options to choose from in the Allure®Collection to make your shades unique for your home. Keep these topics in mind while you browse selections with your dealer.

Vane Size: If you have large windows your treatments might look better with larger vanes, but it depends on your desired look. We have vane choices, large and small to fit your needs.

Vane size is important to consider in completing a room’s overall look.
Larger vanes provide a room with an airier look.

Color and Opacity: With Allure, you can mix and match view settings to your liking, and vary your control even further through shade color and opacity level. We have sheer, semi-sheer, and opaque materials in an array of colors. Always hold a swatch up to a variety of types of back light, or up to a window throughout different times of day to see how the shade’s look will vary.
