Our Favorite Top Down Bottom Up Shades

Norman SmartFit® Dual Shades near Meridian and Boise, Idaho

One window treatment innovation that allows for revolutionary light control is top-down bottom-up shades. These unique window treatments are constructed to allow for flexible coverage and offer more options for effective light diffusion and privacy than your average shade. With their unqiue movement features, you can position the shades from either direction—pulling from the top down or  pushing from the bottom up to create various lighting scenarios. For example, you can lower the shades from the top and raise them from the bottom to let light steam in while still providing privacy. This feature makes them unique since most window treatments are stationary at the top.

Takoy Windows By Design is home to a fine selection of top-down bottom-up shades from leading brands. We are delighted to discuss the benefits and introduce our favorite reasons why you should consider this adaptable window treatment system.

The Perks of Top-Down Bottom-Up Shades 

  • Flexible Privacy and Light Management: They offer additional light and privacy options, and they can be raised from the bottom or lowered from the top. They are perfect for rooms like bathrooms and spas where you desire privacy at the bottom, but light at the top.
  • Additional Energy Efficiency: You can keep your home warm in the winter by lowering the shades from the top so the sun’s rays can heat it up naturally. In warmer weather, when you want to take in a cool breeze, you can lower the top and raise the bottom of your windows for perfect air circulation.
  • Varying Views of the Outdoors: Because you can control top-down bottom-up shades from both the bottom and top, you can enjoy various views. If you want a view head-on, you can raise the shades from the bottom. If you prefer more of a skyline view, you can lower the shades from the top—or both at the same time to maximize your view. It all depends on your preference.
