Benefits of Top-Down Bottom-Up Shades

June 5, 2021

In this blog entry, the shade installation experts here at Design Your Blind will detail the top three reasons to install top-down bottom-up shades at your home or business.

Light Control and Privacy

Top-down bottom-up shades allow you to customize how much incoming light is moving into your rooms, while still ensuring that people can’t see into your home from outside. With typical window coverings, you can control UV rays, but their light control is limited to the lower half of the covering – this isn’t the case with top-down bottom-up shades!

View Options

Top-down bottom-up shades are ideal for rooms that require light – as they allow for clear views of the outdoors to a level that typical window treatments can’t. You can keep the upper half of your shades open with the lower part covered, ensuring privacy while still allowing sunlight to flow into your room, and your magnificent views to be viewable. This is a unique and excellent benefit of top-down bottom-up shades.

Energy Efficiency

Top-down bottom-up shades provide excellent energy efficiency and temperature control. You can close the upper half of the shades in the hot months of Summer, ensuring that rising heat doesn’t move into the room – and keep them open in the Winter to allow the heat of the Sun to move into your home and assist in heating your space. For even more energy efficiency, consider installing cellular / honeycomb variety top down bottom up shades.
