Shadings combine the beauty and softness of drapery fabrics with the precise light control of blinds. In shadings, two fabric facings enclose vanes that function much like blinds, so you have a full range of light and privacy options.
When you open the vanes, light filters softly through the fabric. When you close the vanes partially or fully, you enjoy as much privacy and light blocking as you would with regular blinds. As with curtains, vertical-vane shadings can be drawn to the side of the window. As with blinds, horizontal-vane shadings can be drawn up into a headrail.
Shadings are ideal for picture windows, living rooms, dining rooms, sunrooms and bedrooms. And they're durable and easy to maintain. Simply dust them or vacuum at a low setting. Fabric facings can also be removed from the blinds and machine-washed on gentle cycle. Facings should never be put in the dryer, but instead hung back up while they are still slightly damp.
Whatever your décor, you'll find the right shadings to match it at The Home Depot. We offer vertical or horizontal shadings in sheer or opaque fabrics, plus several valance options and optional neutral fabric liners. We even offer fabric so you can create your own finishing touches. Vertical shadings are versatile, too. If you change your décor, you can remove the fabric facings and replace them with new ones.
All shadings are custom-made to exact window measurements.
