Slide Between Sheer And Privacy With Transitional Shades In Chicago

For a unique spin on a roller shade, think about a playful transitional shade in Chicago. Two panels of fabric easily transition so you can switch between translucent sheer and privacy. When you want to let the light in, glide the shade panels so you get “zebra” stripes. Then when you want to block out glare, just guide the shade either up or down, and the opaque sections will come together to block the outside. If you want an unfettered view, just pull the shade up like a traditional window shade.

Transitional shades give any window a uniqueness that is perfect for your rooms. Coming in an arrangement of colors to pic from, transitional shades can add a focal point to your home. It only takes a quick tug to go from complete sunshine to diffused light to complete privacy and slide from full sunshine to complete privacy in one quick tug. Transitional shades in Chicago are ideal for a kid’s bedroom, family room, or anywhere you want to control outside light with a soft, sleek profile.

Transitional Shade Options

Transitional shades in Chicago are known for their stripes and functionality. Pick from a variety of styles, colors, or textures to enhance your room’s decor. For more private areas, you may want large, opaque panels that create a blackout effect. Consider smaller panels that act as a focal point for formal areas like your family room. 

Why Hang Transitional Shades In Chicago

Transitional shades should give your home a sleek, modern style, while giving a needed privacy layer. The uniqueness of the transitional shade in Chicago allows your window to have a multitude of looks using the one window covering. For total privacy -- a must for a bathroom or bedroom -- align the panels to block the light. When you see the zebra stripes, you get outside light but strained through sheer fabric. These shades are a great way to welcome the morning without harsh UV rays in a bedroom. You can even slide your shades up completely to let in the light!

Transistional shades employ a similar mechanism as a roller shade, so there’s no cords or wands. Transitional shades are a snap to use and safer than blinds and curtains. They’re also more adaptable than a solid window shade. Even with the overlapping fabric panels, your transitional shades stay close to your window pane, so they work well in large picture windows windows.
