Bottom Up/Top Down

Most Bali window treatments offer a bottom up/top down control type. When you’re able to adjust your blind or shade from both the bottom and the top, you can give your window some of the most versatile coverage available.

Some window treatments are also available in a top-down only control type, which can be an obvious choice for bathrooms.

Café & Double-Hung Shutters

Bali Premium Shutters in wood and composite come in two styles that offer versatile window coverage. Café shutters cover the lower half of a window, popularized by the style of cafés in Paris. Double-hung shutters can be opened on the top and the bottom, so you can open them up fully like a traditional shutter or one half at a time.

Sun Up/Sun Down Shades

Choose a sun up/sun down shade when you want to pair two cellular shades or two pleated shades together.

Combination Shades

Choose a combination shade when you want to pair a cellular shade with a pleated shade. This is also a fun way to create your own unique look. The cellular shade is on the bottom, and the pleated shade is on top.

Dual Shades

Pick a dual shade when you want to combine solar and roller shades. Solar shades don’t offer nighttime privacy, so a dual shade combining a solar shade with a blackout roller shade is a perfect way to get that privacy when the sun goes down. A sheer roller shade paired with a blackout roller shade is another great combo for daytime style and nighttime privacy.
