Problem: I want daylighting in my home, but I can’t keep my windows uncovered.

Solution: Daylighting has become more and more popular. If you haven’t heard of this concept, it’s when your windows are designed to let the most sunlight enter your home for natural illumination. But, some windows just can’t be left uncovered. We know about all the issues caused by bare windows! The Duette and Applause collections sound like the right fit for you. This dual shade system pairs the benefits of top down with the protection of cellular shades. Daylighting enters through the light filtering shade at the top, while the bottom can be adjusted based on the amount of sunlight you want entering at any time of the day. Your window can stay completely covered, so you don’t have to worry about the sun damaging your interior. Have a sliding glass door? Duolite is also available in vertical shades!

Problem: My room has multiple uses, so I need a range of control.
