Although most people think only of standard operation (lifting from the bottom up) when they think of how window treatments work, in fact, Hunter Douglas offers several products that have even more versatile operation: both from the bottom up and from the top down. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, we love this feature because it gives our customers the best of both worlds in terms of light and privacy control. Read on to learn more about it, and be sure to contact one of our specialists to see this feature in person.
Finding Products With This Feature
With top-down/bottom-up operation, you can raise and lower a first-floor window from the top, letting in natural light while keeping prying eyes at bay, or you can simultaneously raise and lower from the bottom, which is great for upper-story windows. Hunter Douglas offers several products you can add the feature to:
- Provenance® Woven Wood Shades let you bring nature into the overall look, with artistically woven bamboo, reeds, grasses, and woods. The natural look meshes well with modern, contemporary, and farmhouse modern styles.
- Duette® Cellular Shades offer beauty and energy efficiency all in one—with over 150 fabric and color choices, you’re sure to find something that matches your style, and with its honeycomb design, the shades will help insulate at the window, keeping the outside air out and the inside air in. Plus, you can find vertical options for sliders, walls of windows, and patio doors.
- Solera® Roman Shades provide the look of a Roman shade combined with the energy efficiency of a cellular shade. They’re completely cordless and come in over 65 colors and fabrics.
- Vignette® Roman Shades are a modern take on the traditional Roman shade. They are available in over 25 fabric and color options, and they offer enhanced design features. Plus, Vignette presents an exceptionally streamlined look, with no exposed rear cords.
Complete the Look at the Window
To add even more emphasis to the beauty of your top-down/bottom-up treatment, consider coordinating drapery or side panels through the Design Studio™. This will add drama, dimension, texture, and depth while framing the window in an elegant way. You can find numerous styles, including pinch pleat, grommet, and ripplefold. And don’t forget the drapery hardware for the ultimate finishing touch.
