Top down bottom up shades offer the ultimate in privacy and light control. Available as an option only on window shades, top down bottom up operation allows you to lower the shade from the top, raise it from the bottom, or both. Choose from a great selection of top down bottom up cordless cellular shades and other styles from all the top brands at Blindsgalore. Save with discount prices, free shipping and free samples.
When ordering a top down/bottom up window treatment, 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 top down bottom up shade, be sure to fully raise the middle rail before raising the bottom rail to the top.
Cordless control is the ultimate in simplicity - grasp the handle and put it where you want it! Combined with TDBU (top down bottom up), there are simply two handles instead of one, but the same idea applies - simply position the TDBU window treatment where you want it and it will stay there.
Along with this simplicity comes a caveat. Because you simply put it where you want it, it's important to make sure you will be able to reach as high or as low as you will need to position your shade. For very tall or hard to reach windows, you may want to consider a standard top down/bottom up shade with lift cords.
Top down/bottom up shades offer the ultimate in flexibility and privacy for the home. Control incoming light by adjusting the setting to let light in from the bottom, the top, or both! This popular feature is most commonly used to allow natural light in the room while still maintaining privacy from the street.
Some window treatments also have a cordless top down/bottom up option, for added child safety and a clean look. Blindsgalore offers a wide variety of top down/bottom up window treatments from Bali, Levolor, Comfortex and Graber as well as our own signature line.
The top down/bottom up option is popular for many window covering applications, including bedrooms, bathrooms, and living rooms, or any room where the combination of light and privacy is desired. A top down/bottom up cellular shade or other style shade can be positioned as fully open, fully drawn, or any combination in between, since the bottom rail and top rail operate independently.
Note: 'Top blinds' or 'top down bottom up blinds' is technically a bit of a misnomer, as the mechanical function of top down bottom up is only available on shades. However, we know what you mean! Top down bottom up, bottom up top down and TDBU all mean the same thing!
