Slide Between Sheer And Privacy With Transitional Shades and Blinds In Chicago

For a stylish spin on a roller shade, think about a distinctive transitional shade in Chicago. Two panels of fabric easily transition so you can switch between translucent sheer and opaque blackout shades. When you want to bring in the light, slide the shade panels to where you get “zebra” stripes. Then when you want more privacy, just guide the shade either up or down, and the privacy sections will come together to block the outside. If you want an unfettered view, just bring the shade up like a traditional window blind.

Transitional shades give any window a unique flair that is perfect for your rooms. Coming in an arrangement of colors to pic from, they 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 blinds in Chicago are ideal for a kid’s bedroom, living room, or any room you want to control outside light with stylish interest.


Transitional Shade Options

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

Why Hang Transitional Shades In Chicago

Transitional shades should give your room a beautiful, modern style, while still giving a useful privacy layer. The uniqueness of the transitional shade in Chicago allows your window to have a variety of looks with the one window covering. For complete privacy -- a must for a bathroom or bedroom -- simply line up the sections to block the light. When you see the zebra pattern, you get outside light but strained through sheer fabric. These shades are a great way to welcome the morning without harsh sunlight in a bedroom. You can even roll your shades up completely to let in the light!

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