Transitional shades, also known as zebra shades or banded shades, are similar to Venetian blinds and roller shades. They’re almost a hybrid of the two because they offer the light control of a blind and function like a roller shade.
Transitional Shades and Fabric Options
Zebra shades are known as being “transitional” because of their versatility. They look great in a contemporary home, a traditional home, and everything in between, which is due to the soft fabrics that are used. Transitional shades will provide you with a wide variety of different colors, textures and fabrics. You can also choose the type of room darkening or light filtering fabrics that you desire, which are customizable. If you feel like creating a conversation piece, you can even use geometric or swirling designs.
Transitional Shades Provide Light Control
Banded shades have a combination of both solid and sheer fabrics that are combined in a single shade. By controlling the vanes, you can let light stream in through the sheer fabric or provide darkness by turning them to a closed position. This allows you to control your privacy and the amount of darkness in a room. In addition, you also have a choice of using room darkening fabrics if you plan on using these shades in a media room or bedroom. If you’d like to have an unobstructed view of the outside, you simply need to raise the shades into their cassette valance.
Transitional Shades Offer Protection From UV Rays
These shades are also excellent at helping you protect your interior from the damaging effects of UV rays. When these shades are closed, they have the ability to block out nearly 99 percent of harmful UV rays. This can be helpful in a living from for example where you have furniture or flooring that needs protection from the harsh sun.
