Q: I've heard the term “Top Down Bottom Up”, but what does it mean?
A: “Top Down/Bottom Up” refers to blinds and shades that can be raised and lowered from the top and the bottom. The term “Top Down” actually refers to the normal functions of blinds and shades that can be raised from the window sill. The second term, “Bottom Up” refers to features that allow the top of the shade to be lowered from the headrail.
These types of shades are great for windows where you want targeted light control. Just raise the bottom to let in light near the sill and lower the top rail to give more light towards the ceiling. The great thing about these blinds and shades is that, even with the “Top Down/Bottom Up” feature, you can still fully raise the blind. You can work them just like a normal blind, but also take advantage of that neat “Bottom Up” feature to let in more light. I love these blinds because they also come in two-in-one styles!
