Using Dual Shades will give you the best of both worlds. They are sophisticated & modern with a practical classy look. Unique in design, they are two shades in one. The blinds are made up of two panels, one being a sheer and the other a blockout. Dual Shades have a large range of fabric and textures to choose from including translucent or light filtering. Since they are double the material of the regular shade, they allow you to align the panels & choose the amount of light you would like in your home.
