Banded Shades

Blinds & Designs of Florida provides custom window shades for residential and commercial customers in the Sarasota area. All our shades are custom-made to complement your style and available with many options to choose from.

Designer Banded Shades

Originally introduced in Europe, Designer Banded Shades are also known as Zebra Shades, Double Roller Shades, Twinlights and Mezzanine Layered Shades.
Banded Shades offer a unique control of light and privacy. This shade combines sheer fabric with bands of solid fabric that allow you to control your view. With the shade down you can move the shade to the view position that lets you see outside while maintaining some privacy and softening the day light. At nighttime when you want privacy you can overlap the bands, providing you with privacy.

 

Shade Options -

These shades come in different opacities, light filtering, room darkening or light dimming fabrics. Fabrics are available in a variety of textures, colors, and band heights. Band heights cannot be specified. Choose a band height that will best suit your view-through preferences. Hunter Douglas offers great geometric designs.

Shades are offered with a rounded or squared fabric covered cassette eliminating the need for an additional valance or top treatment and include a fashionable bottom bar. Operation systems can be manual with a chain, motorized with a remote or can come with a soft touch power wand which is attached to the shade.

Automated Shades

Today, automation is an integral part of how we interact with the world. It is the way of the future that now extends to window coverings. Automated blinds and shades combine style, convenience, and safety for the perfect solution to hard-to-reach windows. Or maybe you want to save time because you have multiple window coverings that you’d like to raise or lower all at once. Even if you just prefer luxury and the ease of operation that atomization provides, your life will become so much easier!

 

Convenience -

Simple to maintain, automated blinds and shades are the most convenient way to regulate sunlight and privacy. You can adjust your window coverings to the desired height with a remote, wireless wall switch, smartphone, or tablet. With the quick push of a button or flip of a switch, you can easily control your blinds or shades from across the room. No more leaning, reaching over the couch or climbing up a step ladder to grab hazardous cords or wands. Now, children and pets stay safe as well.

 

Huge Selection of Motorized Options

At Blinds & Designs of Florida, we strive to be the leader in automation by offering a huge selection of motorized options with the latest and greatest technology. From timers to sun sensors, we incorporate the most up-to-date equipment to keep your home insulated and protected when you are at work or on vacation. Timers allow you to program your window coverings to open and close at specific times while sensors signal them to close when the sun is at its brightest. These features provide significant savings in energy costs and keep fabrics, rugs, upholstery, and artwork from fading. We can even easily integrate new technology to work alongside an existing system.

The type of automation depends on what type of window treatment you prefer. With shades, a motorized lift is used to raise or lower the entire shade. Ask your Blinds & Designs of Florida designer about the top-down / bottom-up feature that lets you open your shades from the top and the bottom, allowing you to create the perfect balance of natural light and privacy. If blinds are more your style, motorized tilt is used to tilt the slats or vanes open or closed. Cellular, pleated, roman, roller and solar shades use motorized lift while vertical, wood, and faux wood blinds use motorized tilt.
