Although the basic principles behind blinds and shades as window treatment are still the same, there have been a lot of developments in the technologies, not only in the operation of shades and blinds but also in the material used and the varieties that are now available in the market. Traditionally, blinds have been considered better suited for commercial spaces, though shades were a more versatile choice that blended equally well in commercial and residential areas.
Dual shades are an excellent alternative offering style and functionality for a room. They combine the looks and functionality of two layers of material in a single shade, alternating horizontal bands or sheer and opaque material. There are many utilities of such shades.
Here are 7 Reasons to Choose Dual Blinds and Shades for Your Windows
The way they work
The alternating bands of the Dual Shades align to filter lights and overlap to provide privacy. The primary advantage of these shades functionality-wise is that they filter sunlight into the room in such a manner that it keeps the room naturally well lit. Through the sheer fabric, light enters the room. And with the opaque material, the room gets adequate cover to block out the external view.
Number of choices with dual shades
There are alternatives in dual blinds and shades that give you many options to use dual shades in any interior style. You can choose it with a cord, in cordless and automated options. When the shades are drawn open, they will roll up into a small container at the top. You can choose it in various fabrics, colors, styles, and functionalities.
Layering with light filtering and blackout screens
If you don’t want the opaque and sheer material alternated on a single shade, then you can choose layering shades with one layer of sheer shade and another layer of opaque. There is a lot of demand for such Dual Shades in California. While the light filtering shades are perfect for maintaining privacy and letting natural light in, the opaque layer completely blocks the sun and darkens the room.
