Everything You Need to Know About Zebra Shades

Zebra shades.

This fashionable new style of window treatments has been growing in popularity — and for good reason. But what exactly is a zebra shade, and how does it fit into your home?

What are zebra shades?

Zebra shades were introduced as an alternative to the typical horizontal shade. Sold as roller shades, they transform from sheer and light to shaded and private easily. Sometimes referred to as a banded, layer, or dual shade, they transition easily by revealing layers of sheer fabric that can then be customized to allow a completely opaque finish.

Why we love them

Zebra shades

Not only do zebra shades allow you to customize the level of light and privacy without having to switch out window treatments, their unique design offers a polished look that’s perfect for any decor. Whether you’re looking for a modern, contemporary design that adds a distinctive look to your home, or a classic style that goes with everything, you can find zebra shades to fit your needs.

Other advantages

Besides creating a one-of-a-kind look and switching easily from light to dark, other advantages to owning zebra shades include:

  • UV protection: Worried about sun damage? No need. When completely closed, your zebra shades will block out 99% of UV rays, keeping your furniture and the members of your household safe from sun exposure.
  • Fabric options: These popular shades come in a wide variety of fabric options, making them easily customizable from crowd-pleasing neutral tones to big and bright colors that make a statement.
  • Motorization: If desired, you can choose to motorize your zebra shades for the ultimate in convenience and excitement. Motorization is especially great for windows that are too tall or otherwise hard to reach.

Endless options

Zebra shades

This attractive style of window treatment allows you to choose from many different levels of light and privacy: completely closed with the shades down, completely closed with the shades up, shades down and vanes open for a sheer spilling of light, and more. This makes it easy to adjust the level of light in your home without having to choose between totally bright or completely dark – it’s almost like having a dimmer switch for the outdoors!
