Two In One Shades: From Light to Dark

Does the phrase “opposites attract” appear in home design? Absolutely! From colors and patterns to the atmosphere of a room, everyone is fawning over dynamic contrast. When it comes to window coverings, the latest trend is achieving a wide range of control. Let’s take a look at Two In One Shades


Sheers with Room Darkening?

Yes, please! Don’t get the wrong impression–we love our sheers! But, if we have the choice to have it all? Of course, we’ll reach for the stars!

Pirouette® Shades

The Pirouette collection isn’t always considered when we talk about the Duolite feature. It’s really just one, not two! But, the wide range of control lends itself to the idea of two in one shades. The sheer fabric backing allows for view-through and comfortable lighting. When the vanes close up, you have a totally different experience.

Another unique option in sheer-to-dark lighting is the Designer Banded collection. Two layers of fabrics rotate–in one position you’ll have view-through, and with another you’ll experience darkening of light and privacy.
