Top of the Line? Top Down Bottom Up Shades

Posted on: September 4, 2011

A recent survey of customers about “Why’d you buy in July?” gathered us much information — including the absolute LOVE people have for their Top Down Bottom Up shades.

One reason for this is clearly illustrated in this group of photos. Here’s the after:

Not only does the room have a great “feel” due to the shades being partly UP from the bottom (and how nicely they counter-balance the drawn roman shades at the top of the window! — which happens to camouflage the cellular shades’ headrails), but it also reduces the view of the backyard shed:

I must confess that I simply love all the knotty pine! While the sun streaming through in the middle of winter is advantageous, imagine how HOT this same space would be without the shades once summer hits.

On Winter nights,” Barb in Colorado tells CWS, “we deploy the cellular shades completely and lower the Roman Shades made from Warm Windows fabric over them. I don’t know the resulting R value, but even with the worst of blizzards and 20 below outside, we feel no drafts or cold spots. Our winter utility bill has gone down dramatically since we installed the cellular shades and Roman Shades combination. The Roman Shades are great but the Symphony Shades completed the job.”

So how does the Top Down Bottom Up accomplish this?

Our post on APARTMENT THERAPY, which addressed the privacy issues solved by the Duofold (another name for the Top Down Bottom Up shade), also addresses handy TIPS for how these shades benefit you in WARM WEATHER as well as COLD WEATHER months.
