What are banded shades?
Banded shades (also known as zebra shades or sheer shades) are a hot trend in the window treatment industry. They’re made up of alternate solid and sheer bands that are fused into a single shading system. While most sheer shades only have sheer and room darkening, these dual shades give you light filtering and room darkening all in one! They offer a layered look and light control but they roll up like a fabric roller shade into the headrail. These shades can change the lighting, mood, and ambiance of a room at any given point in time. When the shade is raised, it disappears 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.
What Constitutes a Banded Shade?
A banded shade consists of two layers of window shading into one. It is made up of alternate solid and sheer bands that are fused into a single shading system. You can match these shades with the décor of any space inside your house. There are many fabric shades for you to choose from in our vast collection.
