What Are Transitional Shades?
Transitional window shades are a type of roller shade
, also known as zebra shades or banded shades. Dual layers of fabric panels alternate between sheer, semi-opaque, or opaque horizontal fabric vanes, resulting in a bold stripe pattern that allows light to transition into a room. Transitional shades can be raised and lowered entirely or partially to control light, enjoy a lovely view, or provide a sense of privacy.
We offer fabrics in an array of colors, from cool neutrals to gorgeously subtle oranges and purples, as well as patterns that include unique curved and geometric options. You can also select either board mount fabric wrapped or cassette valances for a polished look. For superior performance, try one of the many easy-to-operate motorization systems
- you can use a remote control, voice control, or a smart home device to raise and lower blinds whenever you need, or even program them to work on a specific schedule. All of our transitional window shades are custom-crafted at our U.S. manufacturing facilities
to ensure they are of the highest quality. We also handle all elements of a project in house, from measurements to installation, to ensure you are completely satisfied with the final result.
Transitional shades make a major visual statement while emphasizing, not hiding, the sleek lines and minimalist decor of a modern space. Designers often use them for larger windows or to create a sense of depth in a room. They also work well in spaces such as bedrooms or bathrooms
, where greater privacy is often desired. Stoneside's professional team can bring showroom samples to your home during a free consultation. See firsthand how well transitional shades complement your rooms and meet your design goals.
