What Can Transitional Shades Offer Midwest Homeowners?

If you’re considering new window treatments for your Midwestern home, you’re probably comparing the many different options out there. From blinds to shutters to shades, each type of window treatment offers its own set of benefits. Many homeowners have begun to turn to a special type of window shade: transitional shades.

What Are Transitional Shades?

Transitional shades are a fantastic and versatile solution to many homeowners’ issues, such as privacy concerns and a need for better light control. Crafted of one single shade featuring alternating sheer and solid bands, transitional shades offer the perfect amount of privacy without forcing you to sacrifice natural light. They’re the ideal view-through window treatment solution for those who treasure natural light and want to view the great outdoors without allowing neighbors and passersby the opportunity to see indoors.
