Two In One Shades: Choose Your Favorite!

Each and every family uses the rooms in their home for a variety of purposes. What sets the atmosphere of those rooms? The window treatments. The more versatile they are, the more comfort you’ll find, ensuring everyone has the right amount of light, temperature control and privacy needed. Let’s talk about Two In One Shades and the innovation they can bring to your home.


Filter Light, Block Light with Sheer Shades

When you think of sheer shades, you probably have a picture in your mind of soft, glowing light. Sheers are known from filtering light, reducing glare and offering levels of privacy and UV protection. But, light blocking? That probably didn’t come to mind until now. To begin with, our well-loved Silhouette shades are now available with a secondary blackout roller shade.

Pirouettes are an easy favorite. Not just because of the dynamic look, but the function allows them to enhance your home. Enjoy sheer filtered light in one position, while blocking light when the solids are in the closed position. Simple and stunning.

Speaking of Two In One Shades, have you seen Luminettes? These vertical sheers have solid vanes built into the shade, allowing beautiful views through the sheers, while light blocking and a view into your home is blocked with one rotation.

Enjoy Light, Save Energy

How do Two In One Shades help you to enjoy the light, but save energy? It’s all in the cellular construction. Duette shades offer a Duolite® feature that filters light through one portion, while blocking light in the other. You can adjust the coverings up or down based on how much light you need. The whole time? You’ll be covered with the comfort of energy efficient design.

The newest member of the honeycomb club? It’s our woven woods. These woven window treatments are available with the Duolite® feature, as well. Two coverings share one headrail, even though they can operate independently. Filter light through the front wovens, and when the temps outside start to heat up, adjust the secondary honeycomb shade into place to maintain comfort in your home.

Romans, Rollers & the Newest Twist 

Romans and rollers are classic. With beautiful folds of fabric, romans bring elegance to any space. Rollers offer sleek design with contemporary appeal. Both of these favorites are available with a secondary blackout roller. And, for a new twist? The geometrical styling of the Designer Banded collection introduces us to window treatments as the newest form of art. With two layers of fabric–one sheer, one solid–you’ll slightly rotate for a whole new view, or the chance to nap in the middle of the day.
