4 Reasons to Choose Top Down/Bottom Up Cordless Shades

Top down/bottom up cordless shades are window coverings with a lot of options! Bottom up/top down shades offer incredibly flexible light control and privacy. They can be lowered from the top AND raised from the bottom. This control option is available with cellular shades, classic Roman shades, and natural shades, just to name a few!


Natural Sunlight & Open View of the Outdoors

Top down/bottom up cordless shades offer more natural sunlight than standard shades. This is because bottom up/top down means shades can be fully raised from the bottom or lowered from the top. You can show so much more of the window if you want to. This helps give clear views and natural light to bring the outdoors in!

No matter what, top down/bottom up shades offer…


Flexible Light Control & Privacy

As lighting control and privacy needs shift during the day, bottom up/top down shades can change, too! Simply lower the top of the shade for privacy with natural light. Raise the bottom of the shade for natural light with less privacy. The options and control are completely up to you!


Privacy & Glare Control

Bottom up/top down shades provide unmatched glare control in rooms that serve multiple purposes. Consider them for office spaces where long hours in front of a screen can lead to eye fatigue. They can be adjusted from the top or bottom to control glare on a television screen, computer, or other reflective surfaces at different times during the day.

The option to position shades in the perfect place to maximize glare control is a great feature that is unique to these shades.


Natural Sunlight During the Day, Blackout at Night

Bottom up/top down cordless shades are a great choice for bedrooms and sleeping areas. They can offer bright, natural sunlight during the day and a blackout experience at night.

Go Cordless for Homes with Kids & Pets

When shopping for top down/bottom up functionality, there's no better time to also make the move to cordless lift shades. The lack of cords makes for streamlined views and the safest choice for homes with kids and pets. We have both, so we always make choosing the safest option a priority!
