Valuable Daylighting + Comfortable Privacy

  • Natural Streams in Across Your Ceiling
  • The Bottom Portion Remains Covered
  • Energy Saving Benefits, As Much of the Window Is Blocked
  • Sky & Treetop Views

Would you love to bring natural light into your home while maintaining privacy? The innovation of top down shades is what you’ve been searching for! Light enters the top of your windows, illuminating the ceiling, providing much needed “daylighting,” which results in less use of artificial lighting. With the top lowered, you can enjoy plenty of light, sky and treetop views, while enjoying blissful privacy. Plus, with the majority of the window covered, you’ll save energy as a great amount of light and heat are blocked from entering.

Available product solutions

  • Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades
  • Provenance® Woven Wood Shades
  • Vignette® Modern Roman Shades

If you like the look of top down, but love plantation shutters, ask us about split tilt, which gives you the option to open the top louvers while the bottom section remains closed up.

If you live in a home with street-level windows, chances are, you’ve felt “on display” at one time or another. Even when going about life in second story windows, if there’s a chance your neighbors can see in, it can make you feel uncomfortable. Top down shades are a great way to avoid this discomfort.

Custom Adjustments

The windows of your home all need their own type of coverings, allowing each room to live up to its potential. Top down bottom up window coverings provide the opportunity to make adjustments to individual shades with a custom result, placing them in the position needed regardless of the other coverings in the same space.
