Double Roller Shades, Double the Functionality

Double Roller Shades, Double the Functionality

Choosing whether to purchase ShadeMonster solar or blackout shades in particular rooms is a common dilemma many clients face. Solar roller shades are light filtering, which allow you to enjoy the view while still providing some privacy. Blackout roller shades, on the other hand, may be used to darken the space, keep the cold / warm outside, and maintain 100% privacy. However, if you want you want to take advantage of your view and see outside, with blackout shades you would need to open up the shades all the way, losing some of your window covering benefits.

This may seem like a difficult choice to make, but we’re here to help and provide you the best options. In today’s blog let's learn about ShadeMonster’s double roller blinds and how these shades will meet ALL your needs.

What is a Double Roller Shade?

Double roller shades – also known a dual roller shades- are a type of window covering that have both light filtering and blackout roller shades installed in the same window frame, which can be used together or separately. Usually, the blackout shade goes in the back (with or without side channels) and then in the front is a solar or light filtering shade. Most of the time these shades are installed with special dual brackets which pair nicely with either a 4 or 5 inch fascia or valance. We also carry dual brackets for exposed regular and/or reverse rolls, so that we can cater to whichever look you’re aiming for in your home or office. Double Roller Shades are also sometimes called combination shades because the two types of fabric work well independently but they're even better when used in conjunction with each other.

With a double roller blind, more light may come into your home by opening the top panel and blocking out unwanted glare with the bottom one. You will also enjoy more privacy without having to break your budget.

Solar Shades and Blackout Shades in One Product

ShadeMonster double roller blinds are a great option for many because they offer the best of both worlds. These shades are most popular in:

  • Bedrooms
  • Nurseries
  • Living Rooms
  • Conference Rooms
  • Hotel Rooms
  • Schools and Auditoriums
  • Home Theaters

They can be used as either a blackout shade or light filtering window coverings, and they're perfect for areas where you want to reduce the glare, control your view, your privacy, and the amount of light coming from outside. A double roller blind is an innovative solution for those looking for both light, privacy and darkness in their home.

A Double Roller Blind is an Innovative Solution

In the same window frame you can enjoy the benefits of two window treatments, to cover all your needs whether it be day or night.

Motorized Double Shades
