Two In One Shades: The Best of Both Worlds

It’s an incredible range of light control–you have to see it to believe it. Two In One Shades have skyrocketed to the top of so many “must have” lists. We thought we would introduce you to a number of collections that will allows you to enjoy the light, filter the light and block the light–all within one system!


Sheer Shades: Enjoy Light, Block Light 

When you think “sheers,” you might think about softened lighting. But, with the introduction of Dual Shades, you can have your light and block it, too! Silhouettes are available with a secondary blackout roller for those days when the Texas sunshine is just too intense.

Consider room darkening to blackout shades like these for your San Antonio home.

Pirouette shades produce similar results. Solid fabrics alternate to reveal a sheer backing. The sunshine is glowing, but with one adjustment, the solids close up to offer light blocking and invaluable privacy!

Large windows and doors deserve their own system. With sheer verticals, it’s wonderful to take in the landscape. Sheers provide that stunning view. But, when privacy is needed and the sunlight has worn out its welcome, the solid vanes rotate to block it all out.

Energy Savings

Oh, that Texas heat. We know it all too well. Whether you want to fill your home with natural light, or not, you know you don’t want to fill your home with Texas heat. Our honeycombs are available as Two In One Shades, covering the entire window to help you conserve energy and maintain comfort. Because these window coverings are joined in the middle, changing the light is as easy as adjusting the treatments up or down.
