WHAT ARE TOP DOWN BOTTOM UP SHADESTop Down Bottom Up Shades allow you to lower the shade from the top or raise it from the bottom with two separate controls. This functionality helps you control your light and privacy levels by choosing whether you want light and visibility coming from the bottom or top of your window.
How to Choose Top Down Bottom Up Shades
Top Down Bottom Up Shades work well in spaces you want to fill with natural light from above, while maintaining a certain level of coverage from below by lowering the shade from the bottom, up. They may work well in bathrooms — allowing light to filter in from above — or in any living spaces where you’d like flexibility in privacy and light levels
How Top Down Bottom Up Shades Work
Different from traditional shades that lower only from the top down, Top Down Bottom Up Window Treatments can be lifted from the bottom and lowered from the top. The added ability to lift from the bottom allows you to maintain privacy with coverage along the lower part of your window, while still letting natural light in from the top. Top Down Bottom Up Shades function with a traditional cord pull method, a cordless design, or through added motorization.
