Dual Sheer Shades: What Are They and Why Are They So Popular?

One of the most popular and versatile shades on the window covering scene today is the Dual Sheer Shade, but it is also one of the most mis-understood. Why? Maybe because it goes by so many different names. Dual Sheer Shades have been described as Banded Shades, Zebra Shades, Layered Shades and more, no wonder it is confusing! So, what is a Dual Sheer Shade?

A Dual Sheer Shade functions like two shades in one. It has two layers of material featuring alternating horizontal bands; one that is sheer and one that is more opaque. The bands align to provide openness, adjust to filter light and overlap to provide privacy all in one shade. No wonder it is popular!

Dual Shades also have a clean Modern style and come in a variety of horizontal band widths, colors and textures. The shade also raises up completely into the cassette at the top allowing full view through your window when desired.

Because the horizontal bands hang like a shade the Dual Shade is very easy to maintain. Unlike other horizontal window treatments that have lovers that lie flat and collect dust the vertical design of the Dual Shade doesn’t collect as much dust. An occasional light vacuuming with the brush attachment on your vacuum is all that is needed.

Dual sheer shade materials range from light filtering to room darkening so they are perfect for any space in your home. They are available with a variety of control options from standard cord control to motorization.
