Top Down Bottom Up Roman Shades are the perfect combination of function and style. Whereas cellular shades have come a long way, It is hard to match the beauty and stylishness of real fabrics. In this blog post, we are looking at the Hunter Douglas Vignette Shades done in a grasscloth fabric. It is synthetic, so if you have allergies or are concerned about long term durability this might be a good option for you.

One of the reasons that we went with the Hunter Douglas Vignette shades had to do with function. The client wanted top down bottom up operation, but most products and companies did not allow for it. Typically, top down bottom up roman shade operation requires a wider window. This is because of the mechanisms inside of the headrail. Because Hunter Douglas uses a proprietary system that has been scaled down over the years, it offered the best solution.

If we had tried a different system or company, we would have had to use an outside mount, which would have raised the price, due to the larger size needed. Keep in mind that every job will have different needs which makes the solution unique to your home. We make sure that we consider all the needs and options when helping our clients figure out their window treatment needs. In this case, it was top down bottom up roman shades, but your solution may be different.
