Natural light is energy boosting. But, what about the need for privacy? Top down bottom up shades are the answer! Bring that mood-enhancing sunlight in across the ceiling. The view–into your home–will be blocked. You control the light–how much and the direction. This feature can also help you maintain comfortable temps, blocking the portion of the window that’s most affected.

Light flows in, but the windows are covered. Can you think of rooms in your home where you’d love this idea? When sunlight enters across the ceiling, the space lights up, but there’s no glare, no direct rays, no massive temperature fluctuations. You stay comfortable, but the atmosphere is mood-enhancing and lovely.


Comfort & security are top concerns for certain areas of your home–or even times of day. But, that doesn’t mean you should settle for living in a cave-like atmosphere. Get all the light you need + sky views while enjoying your personal space. Top down shades are an ideal choice when you want to achieve the perfect balance.

Want to get rid of glare? Done. Need to stop direct rays? Blocked. The adjustments available with this window covering feature truly help you create the perfect atmosphere. But, that’s not just at the room level–it’s also specific to each individual window. The lighting, the temperature, the surrounding atmosphere is designed by you.
