What Are Top Down – Bottom up Blinds?
When you purchase blinds, you purchase them not only for their looks but also for functionality. You want them to look nice in your home but you also want them to block out the light, ensure privacy, and in some cases lower your electric bills. Therefore, when you go to purchase blinds for your home, you should consider how you want the blinds to retract.
What Are Top Down – Bottom Up Blinds (DuoFold)
Normally sold as an upgrade to blinds, this is actually a nice feature. Sometimes you want to open the blinds to let some light in but you still want to maintain some privacy. What better way than opening the blinds from the top?
When you open the blinds from the top, you allow the light to shine in without your privacy being invaded. You still get all the privacy from the bottom down, which is very nice. This feature comes in handy when trying to watch children play outside while you are inside trying to take care of things away from prying children eyes.
Since the blinds are duofold, you can still retract the blinds from the bottom up as well. This way, if you choose, you can still lift the blinds in the normal fashion. The more options you have for your blinds makes them more functional and well worth the additional upgrade.
