3 Reasons to Love Top-Down/Bottom-Up Shades

Hunter Douglas Duette® Cellular Shades near the Treasure Valley area and Meridian, Idaho (ID)

From windows to doors, top-down/bottom-up shades offer unparalleled adaptability. With their innovative and lightweight design, these shades provide both aesthetic appeal and functionality. At Takoy Windows by Design, we can help you find reasons to fall in love with top-down/bottom-up shades, too!

Why We Love Top-Down/Bottom-Up Shades

With their functional beauty, flexible operation, and exceptional layering capabilities with other window treatments like drapery, we have so many reasons to love top-down/bottom-up shades. These are the top three reasons we just can’t get enough of top-down/bottom-up shades:

  • Energy & Cost Efficient: Top-down/bottom-up shades provide the ultimate in innovative energy efficiency. On hot and humid days, block out the sun by raising your shades from the bottom up to cover just the top part of your window. During the winter, lower shades from the top down to allow the sun to come in and heat your home. The versatility of these shades helps you maintain a consistent and comfortable interior temperature reducing utility costs over time.
  • Light & Privacy Control: Top-down/bottom-up shades allow you to let in light without compromising your privacy. With the operation flexibility these shades offer, you can truly adjust your light and privacy levels to accommodate your needs at any time of the day, night, or season. Top-down/bottom-up shades give you all the functionality of traditional shades, but they also allow you to let sunlight in without fully opening your shades or get a bit of privacy without fully closing them.
  • Safe for Kids & Pets: Top-down/bottom-up shades are cordless, so there are no strings or chains for small children and curious pets to get tangled in. To raise and lower your shades, simply push up or pull down.
