If you’re looking for a unique aesthetic for your window, one great option is “zebra” shades. No, they’re not made of a zebra pattern, and they don’t have black and white stripes. The nickname refers to how they’re designed to work. At Windows, Walls & More here in West Bloomfield, we carry the full line of Hunter Douglas window fashions, including their version of “zebra” shades: Designer Banded Shades. To learn more about this great product, read on, and be sure to contact one of our specialists if you’d like to see them in person.
Banded shades elevate the look and functionality of a traditional roller shade or horizontal blind. They’re designed as two layers of shade in one treatment. One layer is sheer, and the other is solid, and they combine to give you new options for controlling light. With Designer Banded Shades, you can choose from small, medium, and large band heights to suit your needs—larger band heights offer more view-through. You’ll find them in numerous fabrics, from light-filtering to room-darkening, and in a variety of colors. You can even choose a geometric pattern that offers an unexpected look. With Designer Banded Shades, controlling light is as easy as shifting the layers: when the solid layer of one fabric aligns with the solid layer of the other, you have more light and view-through; when it aligns with the sheer layer, it’s the same effect as having a closed window shade. If you have multiple windows in one room, don’t worry about an uneven appearance, because the bands can align on adjacent windows, giving you a clean, consistent look throughout the room.
For a Complete Look
To round out the look at the window, to add some visual depth, and to boost privacy and light control, consider adding coordinating side panels or drapery. The Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ offers an exclusive fabric collection that will complement and layer perfectly with your new Hunter Douglas window fashions. You can coordinate your look or mix fabric patterns and textures for an eye-catching experience for the space. Plus, you can find custom hardware and accessories, as well as complementary valances and pillows, to fully round out the theme of the room and make your window exclusively your own style.
