Avalon 2" Horizontal Light Filtering Sheer Shades - Payless Décor

Avalon 2" Horizontal Light Filtering Sheer Shades


Avalon's horizontal fabric vanes float between two layers of sheers for a softened outside view when in the open "view-through" position. The Eternity light filtering vanes gently filter light to give rooms a warm, calming glow.

Color Palette
Avalon vanes are made from an extensive collection of elegant neutrals and soft, alluring pastels in 2-inch and 3-inch vane widths. While white sheers are combined with most Avalon colors, off white sheers complement the matching fabric of Antique Beige.

Omni-View Cord System
Thanks to the Omni-View™ Hardware System, Avalon Shadings can be raised up to 24-inches with the vanes still open. The system allows several additional vane positions: open, closed, raised and lowered.

Head Rail Profiles
The UltraSleek Head Rail is the standard on Avalon Sheer Horizonals up to 84" wide by 84" long.  The Deluxe Head Rail comes with larger sized shades and has a slightly larger profile.  

Innovative Bottom Rail
The Avalon Bottom Rail contains a sliding weight and pulley system that eliminates fabric skewing and protects the fabric edges from subsequent damage.

Minimal Light Leakage
Low side light gaps create minimal leakage above the head rail and along the edges of the shading.

Flame Resistance
Avalon Window Shadings may be treated for flame resistance, making them suitable for commercial applications. Treated Avalon meets virtually all fire codes including the California FR Fire Marshall Title 19 Code. Contact Customer Service for more information.

Production Time: 5-7 business days + 3-5 business days for shipping.

Features, Benefits, Options: Cleaning and Care:

While beautiful and pleasing to they eye, the Avalon Horizontal Sheer Shade is designed to be durable, easily cared for and easily cleaned.

Avalon is made from a sturdy, knitted polyester fabric which can be feather dusted or vacuumed at a low setting. Spots or stains can be lightly rubbed clean with a damp sponge and mild soap. To avoid discoloration of the material, we recommend against the use of chemical cleaners.

Precautions should be taken to reduce exposure to harsh environmental elements, such as salt air. Continuous exposure to salt air through open windows and doors will accelerate fabric deterioration over time.

Remote control operation is available with our easy-to-use Simplicity Motor. 

Important: Do not clean the fabric using electrostatic wipes such as Swiffer® or Pledge Grab-It®.

Avalon fabric may also be ultrasonically cleaned. While we acknowledge this cleaning method as being safe and effective. We cannot attest to the quality of equipment or services provided by any independent cleaning facility.

  • Flame resistance
  • Industry standard internal components
  • multiple headrail options

I purchased some light filtering blinds 2.5 years ago a d they turned out to be very beautiful and really gave my living room a touch of elegance. Based in that purchase, I upgraded my dining room with white wine light filtering blinds and it turned out really well. I am very pleased, but in hindsight, I wished I would have went with the olive colored for consistency purpose, but still very pleased with purchase and look.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question

What is the minimum mounting depth for the 2" avalon sheer shades? Thanks!


The minimum depth required to mount is 3/4". If you would like a flush fit, minimum depth is 3 1/4".


I am interested in furnishing my home with window shades but I'm trying to duplicate the same amount of light that my paper temporary blinds give. Will these shades accomplish that for me are can you recommend something else. The temp. paper shades allow enough light in my home that I do not need to put on artificial light during the daytime.


When these horizontal sheer shades are open they certainly will let a fair amount of light in. My best suggest would be to get a free sample from us and take a look to ensure the light that comes through is the equivalent to your paper, temporary blinds. They should look a lot nicer too!.


When the shades are closed are they light blocking / can you see shadows through them? I'm looking for something that will provide privacy in a bathroom when they're closed (but filter light when they're open).


The light filtering sheer shades will offer privacy, but you will still see shadows and silhouettes. They will filter the light into the room, but are not light blocking like a blackout shade would be. If you order for an inside mount, please note that there will be light gaps on the sides as there is a material deduction for both inside and outside mounted shades. If you want to avoid that, then we recommend that you measure and order for outside mount. Here is a link to our measuring guide for more details: http://www.paylessdecor.com/measuring-guide.asp


Are the vanes or blinds suspended between 2 sheers with the Avalon 2 inch light filtering shades?


If you view from the side of the blind, there are sheer vanes that connect to the back and front side of the shade. Please look at the third picture as it will detail what the shades look like. If you order sample swatches, you can see the color and materials in person. Here is a link for the samples: http://www.paylessdecor.com/free-samples.asp
