Top/Down Bottom/Up Window Shades
Top Three Benefits of Top Down Bottom Up Shades
Here are some of the advantages that Top Down Bottom Up Shades can offer:
Additional Light Control
A standard shade can be raised and lowered only from bottom to the top. This limits your ability to control the amount of light you allow into the room while maintaining privacy into the room. With a traditional window shade, you might have to open it all the way brighten your room. In doing so, you sacrifice privacy… there’s a trade-off. With a Top/Down Bottom/Up Shade, it gives you the ability to open the shade from the top or the bottom or a combination of both. This top-down bottom-up cellular shade design allows you to let more light into your room without opening the shade completely. Top Down Bottom Up shades not only gives you more privacy and light control but they may even save you some money on utility cost since you will have more control over the natural light entering the room.
Privacy while offering a view
The beauty of Top/Down Bottom/Up Shades is that they can open them from the top, bottom or a combination of both. When traditional shades are opened from the bottom, they may allow a view into your room from the street or ground level. The Top-Down Bottom-Up shade helps to solve this problem by allowing you to open it from the top. By opening the window shade from the top, you have a view to the outside while keeping nosey neighbors and peeping toms out. Traditional window treatments can’t offer this level of privacy while still offering you a view to the outside to enjoy. The Top Down Bottom Up Shades will make your rooms brighter, offers better privacy and views to the outside.
The Top Down Bottom Up Shades are cordless. This makes them a safer option over other window treatments that have a cord. Cordless Window Treatments are not only more stylish and easier to use but are safer around children and pets.
Cellular Shades and Honeycomb Shades are one of the most popular window treatment choices. Cellular Shades come in a wide variety of colors and opacities. Their ability to block drafts will keep rooms warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Cellular Shades have outstanding insulating capabilities. In addition to boosting energy efficiency and saving you money, they're very effective in controlling the amount light allowed into your room. Cellular Shades are offered in a wide range of opacity levels from light filtering to blackout. Cellular Shades can be opened by a traditional Corded option, a Cordless option which is safer around pets and children or a motorized lift option.
