How Do You Mount a Hunter Douglas Silhouette?

Hunter Douglas Silhouettes are an innovative window covering solution that combine the beauty of soft fabric vanes with the convenience of a durable, adjustable frame. The system consists of two fabric vanes suspended between two sheer panels, which can be adjusted to control light and privacy levels in any given room. Installing a Hunter Douglas Silhouette is relatively simple, and can be done by most homeowners in less than an hour.

The first step in mounting a Hunter Douglas Silhouette is to properly measure the window opening. Measure both the width and height of the window opening, then subtract 1/4 inch from each measurement to get the exact size needed for the product. Once you know what size frame you need, select a frame that fits your measurements.

Once you have chosen your frame, it’s time to install it. Begin by attaching brackets to the headrail using screws or nails.

Make sure that the brackets are securely fastened so that the Hunter Douglas Silhouette will stay securely attached to your wall or window frame. Next, slide the headrail over the brackets and secure it with screws or nails.

Once your headrail is secure, you can attach your fabric vanes. Start by attaching one vane at a time to the top of your headrail using screws or nails.

After all of your vanes are attached at the top, attach them at the bottom in the same way. Make sure all of your vanes are securely fastened before proceeding.

At this point, you can add sheer panels if desired. Place each panel on either side of your Hunter Douglas Silhouette and attach them to both sides of your frame using screws or nails.

Once they are securely attached on both sides, adjust them as needed until they fit snugly against both sides of your frame.

Mounting a Hunter Douglas Silhouette is an easy process that requires only basic tools and supplies such as scissors, screwdriver, measuring tape and screws or nails. With some patience and attention to detail you can easily install this innovative window covering solution for yourself in no time at all!
