Zebra Shades 101

Zebra shades are a modern roller blind alternative to traditional horizontal blinds. Often, banded shades consist of alternating horizontal opaque and sheer stripes that let you transition from night to day with ease. By simply adjusting the shade’s stripes, you can control how much light and privacy a specific room in your home receives. If you want light control, simply adjust the stripes so that the opaque ones overlap. This will allow light to filter through the sheer stripes for a gorgeous glow. If you want privacy or room darkening, spread out the opaque stripes to block out any unwanted light. If you want maximum views and sunshine, simply roll the blinds to the top of your window. Transitioning from light to dark in seconds, these shades are best for those who want complete light control.
