What are top down bottom up window treatments?
Top down bottom up window treatments come in many styles and materials, from top down bottom up zebra shades, roman shades, woven wood shades and cellular shades, to light filtering shades, room darkening shades, and even blackout shades. But the main thing that defines a top down bottom up shade is the mechanism, or lift type. With a top down bottom up lift you have many options - control your shade from the top to let in light while keeping the bottom covered for privacy, or lift it up from the bottom to let you view through.
How do top down bottom up blinds work?
Top down bottom up blinds work by having the fabric held up by cords. There is a middle rail that you can pull on to adjust the top part of the fabric stack, and the bottom rail will adjust the bottom part of the fabric stack. This allows you to have the fabric free floating anywhere along the length of the window. This makes top down bottom up shades a great option for tall windows or french doors, as it gives you flexibility in where you want to block the light.
Why do top down bottom up blinds provide superior natural light and light control?
The versatility of the top down bottom up lift provides superior natural light control simply because it gives you finer ways to adjust the light that enters your room. As regular blinds and shades only come down from the top, they force you to block the top part of the window where most natural light comes through, and they cannot keep open without sacrificing privacy.
What are the best top down bottom up shades?
