When it comes to choosing whether to purchase ShadeMonster solar or blackout shades for particular rooms it can be hard to decide. Solar roller shades are light filtering, which allow you to enjoy the view while still protecting you from harmful UV rays and glare. Blackout roller shades, on the other hand, are perfect for room darkening, insulating from the outside weather, and maintaining 100% privacy. With blackout shades, if you want to be able to see outside you’ll need to raise the shades all the way, which in turn loses your window covering benefits. Depending on the room it might be more beneficial to decide on one specific shade than the other for its functionality.
This may seem like a difficult decision, but you don’t won’t have to choose when you install double shades. In today’s blog, let's learn about ShadeMonster’s double roller blinds and how these shades will meet ALL your needs.
Double roller shades – also known as 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). A solar or light filtering shade goes in front. 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. There are also dual brackets for exposed regular and/or reverse rolls, so you can find the right look for your home or office. Double roller shades are sometimes called combination shades because the two types of fabric work well independently but are even better when used in combination with each other.
Double roller blinds allow light to filter through while reducing glare by raising the blackout panel and keeping the solar or light filtering panel lowered. For increased privacy, simply lower the blackout shade.
Double roller blinds are a great option for many rooms because they offer the best of both worlds. These shades are most popular in:
They can be used independently as either a blackout shade or light filtering window covering, and are perfect for areas where you want to reduce the glare, control your view, your privacy, and the amount of light coming through your window. A double roller blind is an innovative solution for those looking for light filtering, privacy, and room darkness.
In the same window frame, you can enjoy the benefits of two window treatments that will cover all your needs whether it be day or night. Here at ShadeMonster, you can also find the perfect color combinations of the two fabrics to match your home's style. With a large variety of fabrics to choose from, custom double shades can be personalized to your exact style choices and can easily match your interiors.

To make operating your double shades easier, opt for motorization. With a remote control, free smartphone app, or smart hub device, a motorization upgrade allows you to raise and lower your shades without any heavy lifting. Pair your shades with a smart home device like Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant to use voice commands to adjust your shades. Electric double shades are particularly ideal for households with pets or small children as they allow you to eliminate dangling cords and make your home safer.
