Blindsgalore Sheer Shadings combine the gossamer lightness of a sheer shade with the light control of a blind and the look of drapery.  2" fabric vanes float between two layers of light filtering material that blocks 35% of incoming UV light while providing a beautifully sheer look when open.  When closed, the light dimming vanes on this shade block 99% of all UV and block more visible light than the light filtering version for additional privacy.

Note: For your shade to operate properly, the fabric may be up to 1 1/4" narrower than the width ordered, creating a 5/8" light gap on each side.

  • Horizontal fabric vanes float between two layers of soft, knitted sheers
  • Be sure to use the smallest height measurement when ordering an inside mount shade - if the shade is too long, the vanes will not close properly
  • Note: not a blackout shade - vanes do not form a perfect seal against light leakage which is most visible towards the bottom of the shading; vane overlap ensures privacy is not compromised
  • Deluxe Headrail with color coodinated fabric insert comes standard
  • Can be ultrasonically or traditionally cleaned
  • Lifetime Limited Warranty

step 2

Select a mount option:

Learn more about mount

Mount refers to whether the treatment will be mounted within the window frame (inside mount) or on the wall surrounding the window (outside mount).

For an inside mount, please provide us with the exact dimensions of the window frame.  Any deductions to the size of your shade will be made by the manufacturer.

For an outside mount, please enter the width and height of the window-covering itself.  We recommend adding at least 4 inches to the width of the window, and 4 inches to the height of the window.  This will allow for proper overlap with the wall.

Inside

Inside

?

Inside mount blinds will fit within the window casing for a clean, custom look.  Enter the actual size of your window casing, NOT the size of your old blind.  We will make the necessary deductions to make the blind fit properly.  Make sure your window meets the minimum inside mount specifications, or flush mount specifications if desired.

?

Outside mount blinds will be installed on the wall above the window, covering the window entirely.  Enter the size you want the finished product to be, including the desired overlap beyond the window.  The ordered height will include the hardware for blinds and shades.  The width of the headrail may be slightly wider than the ordered width to accomodate operating controls and valance returns.  The outside mount option is required if your window is not deep enough to install the blind as an inside mount.

Select a lift option:

Learn more about lift

The control which raises and lowers the blind or shade; options vary by product but may include a traditional pull cord, continuous cord control, cordless lift, or motorization.

Continuous Cord

Continuous Cord

?

Loop and clutch system easily positions shade at any height.  Cord loop stays the same length regardless of shade position.  Easily raises even large shades.  Headrail system conceals the fabric roll and provides a finished look.

?

Simply pull on the handled attached to the bottom rail to raise or lower the shading.  Cordless Sheer Shadings utilize a roller catch mechanism in the head rail which allows for the vanes to be adjusted into various positions. Your view to the outside is unobstructed with no distracting cords. It provides a complete cord-free window shading, perfect for homes with small children or pets.

?

The cordless motorized wand is a safe and convenient option to lift and tilt your shades.  Press and release the button on the pendant located at the end of the wand to raise and lower the shade or tilt the vanes open or closed.  When shade is lowered, the vanes can be adjusted to control your view to the outside.  White wand and pendant for shades with standard hardware.  Shades with Black or Oil Rubbed Bronze hardware will be built with black wand and pendant. Buttons will always be white.  Comes with battery wand with 8 alkaline batteries included.

?

Enjoy affordable and motorized operation to raise and lower your shade at the push of a button with no external cords.  Motorized operation is controlled by a remote control and operated through radio frequency with 5 individual frequency channels.  Assign your current shade selection to a desired channel on the remote by selecting a preset channel (1-5).  Multiple shades can also be on the same channel to operate all shades at once.  Select "No Remote" if you already preselected a remote option on another shade or have preexisting motorized shades with a remote control.  Remote control must be ordered to operate shades.  8 Alkaline batteries are included in a battery wand.

step 5

Give your shades an extra touch of style and upgrade your headrail with the Oil Rubbed Bronze Metallic headrail.  Matching color cords and fabric insert are included with this option.

?

Upgrade your shades with the Onyx Black headrail.  Matching color cords and fabric insert are included with this option.

step 6

Select a hardware option:

Learn more about hardware

Your order will come with the necessary hardware for a typical installation based on the options and mount type you have selected.  Additional hardware, such as extension brackets and hold-down brackets, is available for special mounting requirements.  Other hardware, such as cord cleats or extension poles, may also be available.

Extension Brackets

Extension Brackets

?

Extension brackets (outside mount only) are available for windows with obstructions such as door handles.  These brackets offer the extra projection needed to clear the obstruction so the blind operates correctly.

?

To eliminate the swaying of blinds installed on doors or in windy locations, we recommend the use of hold down brackets.  These brackets snap into holes on the bottom rail of the blind when it is in the fully lowered position.  To raise the blind, it must be unfastened from the bracket.  Hold down brackets are available for outside mount use only.

?

Used to add a small amount of extra depth to the headrail when installing in order to avoid obstructions such as molding around a window.  Available for outside mount applications only.

Used on our order forms, the window nickname is one that you assign to the windows in a room.  This helps you keep track of your order when a room has multiple windows.  We recommend including a room name and numbering the windows sequentially (for example, "Bedroom window #2"), but you may use any system you like.

"Beautiful Blinds"

from San Diego, CA on May 29, 2013

Blinds allow for some privacy when open.  The #1 reason why I bought them.

"Great Value"

by kathyfl1 from Frederick, MD on June 28, 2012

Blinds are a great value for the price compared to the more expensive brands.  They look very nice in the room and do a good job blocking sunlight for the television during the day.

"Nice alternative to HD luminettes"

by MoxieMom from Southern California on October 10, 2007

We purchased these for a spare bedroom to replace an old roller shade.  The room receives afternoon sun.  Although these horizontal sheer shades do not completely block out the light (when compared to traditional opaque shades) they do a very good job at most times of day or night.  When the room is receiving full sun, light seeps through at the junction of the fabric "louvers" and at the edges, but the fabric itself is opaque.  There is no problem in the morning -- the room stays dark enough to allow someone to sleep in.  We have Hunter Douglas sheer shades (professionally installed) in other parts of the house.  The Blindsgalore ones compare favorably to those in most respects.  The aspect where I notice some lowering of quality is in the construction of the header and the mechanism of the continuous cord pulls.  Installation of the blinds (interior mount) was a pain and the instructions (without words) were not very good.  Although I realize multi-lingual instructions may be expensive, I really don't understand why manufacturers are insisting on providing picture only instructions.  We did eventually get the shades up.  Two of us worked on it -- it would be difficult to mount these with one person unless you had done a number of them.  It was difficult to line up all three of the clipping mechanisms while simultaneously ensuring that the blinds were centered in the window (ours are off by 1/4" or so) and while avoiding two plastic "pins" at the ends of the header which tended to interfere with the clips.
