Although most people think of shades opening only the traditional way (from the bottom up), you can actually choose an option on some products that will get you the best of all worlds. At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, we carry the full line of Hunter Douglas products, including the shades that operate in top-down/bottom-up fashion. Learn about this operating style’s features and benefits below, and be sure to speak with one of our representatives to see it in action!
You’ll get exactly what it sounds like: the ability to raise and lower the treatment from the bottom up, as well as in a unique way—from the top down. And even better, you can also do both! With this operation, you can raise and lower a first-floor window from the top, letting in natural light while keeping peeping toms from looking in, or you can simultaneously raise and lower from the bottom, which is great for upper-story windows.
Finding Shades With This Option
Hunter Douglas offers several products you can add the option to:
- Duette® Cellular Shades. Energy-efficient, beautiful, and functional, Duette honeycomb shades trap air in their honeycomb pockets to help keep rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Plus, you can find vertical options for sliders, walls of windows, and patio doors.
- Vignette® Roman Shades. Elegant and luxurious, Vignette are a modern twist on a well-known classic. Offered in a variety of fabrics from sheer to room-darkening, these shades can work well in any room.
- Solera® Roman Shades. With the look of a traditional Roman shade, Solera Soft Shades can bring a sculptural aesthetic to enhance the look of any room. Although they work with many décor styles, Solera is best known for being contemporary, and their cellular construction adds to their appeal because it adds energy efficiency through insulation at the window.
- Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. An artisanal choice, Provenance shades are made from natural woods, reeds, grass, and bamboo. Weaving these natural materials creates an organic look for window fashions that filter light beautifully.
