Top down/bottom up dining room window shades are the perfect compliment to any dining room experience. Your dining room is where you will have your formal dinner parties, family meals, holidays, and special occasions. Although you will want a certain level of light control and privacy, you will mostly want to help create ambiance and comfort to ensure everyone can enjoy their meal. Top down/bottom up dining room shades can lightly filter in light from the top and be closed at the bottom to block the breeze and keep the room warm. For meals earlier in the day when the sun is very bright and strong, you can close the top to block the harsh light and leave the bottom open for air flow to prevent the room from overheating. Just remember that you will most likely spend the majority of your time eating in this room, so your window treatments need to accommodate and help make the dining room a pleasant place to gather.
Keep in mind that top down/ bottom up dining room shades have two operating cords with one on each side of the shade. Sometimes this can appear messy or cluttered. If you want a cleaner look consider these shades with a cordless lift system as well.
