Dual Roller Shades

Last week, our blog showed how draperies can add style and function to a room, but sometimes pleated drapes aren’t the right choice. In fact, this week’s blog will show another option for a door: Dual Roller Shades.

How do you get two completely different types of window coverings for doors? It all depends on the deciding factors. In this case, the functional needs were different. This client needed a very contemporary look for their townhouse in midtown Reno, NV.  The construction of this unit was filled with concrete, metal and glass. Since they were trying to complement, not change the structural design, something with very clean lines was selected, dual roller shades. Because the property faces a busy street, They needed something that would allow for some privacy, while allowing the view to the outside. The sheer material that was selected from Norman Window Fashions Soluna Roller Shades sheer series was a perfect choice for function and design.

Behind the sheer fabric is an opaque fabric from the same Norman Window Fashions line. Used in combination, you can have just the sheer covering the window, just the opaque fabric covering the window, dual roller shades down or both shades up. Having a dual shade setup allows for lots of choices. Costs are also very reasonable for so many choices and such a stylish look.
