Here's Why Banded Shades Are So Popular Right Now

Banded shades, commonly known as zebra shades, might be one of the hottest window treatments on the market this year. The innovative design of zebra shades provide just the right amount of privacy and light control without sacrificing style—what more could you ask for? 

What Are Banded Shades?

Banded shades, sheer shades, or zebra shades, are the latest trend in the window treatment industry. Similar to standard blinds, these shades offer a layered look and serious light control but they roll up like a fabric roller shade. With the help of its unique headrail design, you’ll also be able to create an elegant valance. When the shade is raised, it will disappear inside the headrail for a clean, modern look. If you’re looking for stylish, yet functional window treatments or an alternative to traditional blinds, banded shades are the perfect solution.


Benefits of Banded Shades

Banded shades are popular for good reason—here, we’ll discuss three benefits of banded shades and why our customers are raving over this design.

Design versatility

If choosing your design is important to you, then you’ll love the versatility of banded shades. Whether you’re wanting to pair these shades with other window treatments, like flowing drapes, or you’d rather install them as stand-alone shades, you’ll love both looks. Much like roller shades, they offer clean lines that fit perfectly within a modern home but are subtle enough to fit any home aesthetic. 


Concerned about installing fancy shades around children or pets? Thankfully, banded shades can also be installed cordless and with motorizations for safety and convenience. Control your shades from anywhere in your house—even from the comfort of your couch!

UV Protection

Hoping to protect your furniture and floors from the harsh sun? Banded shades with UV protection can help reduce glare and block out harmful rays. Built to limit your exposure to any harmful rays, you’ll still be able to allow in natural freshness and healthy sunlight.

Banded shades are available in a variety of colors, light-filtering patterns for moderate privacy, or dark, bold colors and room-darkening patterns—the design choice is truly yours to make!
