things to consider:
When ordering a top down/bottom up option, remember that the shade will come with two lift cords, one on each side of the shade. Typically, the right cord will operate the bottom rail, and the left cord will operate the middle rail (the top down portion). When operating the shade, be sure to fully raise the middle rail before raising the bottom rail to the top.
When ordering a cordless top down/bottom up shade, remember that a cordless blind or shade typically operates by gently pushing up or pulling down on the rail of the blind; you can then position the shade to any height you desire. For this reason, it's important to make sure you will be able to reach as high or as low as you will need to position your blind. For very tall or hard to reach windows, you may want to consider a standard top down/bottom up shade.
