Designed to evoke the simple, yet stylish life of an island vacation getaway, Cape Cod window shadings offer both seclusion and luxury. They come in a large assortment of light-filtering solids, textures, and linen fabrics. Or view the Cape Cod Room Darkening Collection to get room-darkening patterns and colors that block glare and light. Either way, these shadings create a mood that invites you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the good life.

Like a blind, these window shadings feature soft, translucent fabric vanes suspended between two sheer fabric layers. When Cape Cod shadings are lowered, the 2 1/2" vanes may be tilted at any angle, from fully open to fully closed. With the vanes open, your view is filtered and softened by the sheer facings. Even when open, the fine voile fabric blocks 60% of the harmful UV rays which can fade your furniture and floors. With the vanes closed for privacy, a gentle light glows through, and then 98% of the UV is blocked. When the shading is raised, the fabric is concealed within the color-coordinated headrail, and you can see out with no obstruction.

The Cape Cod Shading operates using a continuous cord loop for safety. Comes complete with mounting brackets and easy-to-follow installation instructions.

Shading products from all manufacturers have a 3/4" gap on the side of the loop cord, which may create a privacy problem if your window does not have trim, or if you do not have a drapery to cover that space. However, for most people this is not a deterrent to buying shadings. When you measure the height, take the SHORTEST measurement, so the bottom rail can pivot and the vanes can rotate easily.


This product complies with CPSC child safety guidelines. If you have children in your home on a regular basis, CPSC recommends the use of cordless window coverings.

"We ordered Cape Cod Front Street blinds for our living room. We originally had expensive, insulated drapes. The blinds arrived in perfect condition, installation took only minutes, and the blinds fit perfectly and look great. The room looks much larger now. These blinds do a great job at cutting the harsh sunlight from a southern exposure, but allow enough light in to make the room brighter. We are very satisfied with the speed, quality and service levels associated with this purchase. Thanks!"

"The Cape Cod Light filtering shades give just the right amount of light and privacy. I put these in a 2nd story master bedroom and spa tub bath window. During the day I like to keep one shade up for the view, one shade down but open to filter the sunlight, and the bath shade is usually down and tilted just enough for privacy but I still have a view and filtered light. I did not need black-out so even with the shades closed to block direct sun, they give a nice light effect in the room. The loop mechanism works smoothly and easily for opening, tilting, and closing. I considered Hunter Douglas Silouettes but couldn't justify the price. These are high quality, nice textured fabric, and I'm thrilled with them. There was some confusion with the installation, however, because I received an email with partial instructions and there was a booklet in each shipping box with partial instructions plus 1 booklet with complete instructions. Unfortunately, the complete booklet was in the last box we opened after managing to install the first 3 shades without it."

"Product was shipped without installation brackets. Installer called for missing brackets to be delivered, but the factory again shipped (later than date promised) another set of tie-down brackets, not the mounting brackets. Only on the 3rd try, did I receive the mounting brackets from the factory.
Extremely poor response from the factory, which ultimately reflects on blinds.com itself.

"The blinds are perfect!. They let in light but keep our privacy. They look elegant, yet are very serviceable. They were very easy to install. They were less than half the price our retailer in town was charging which translated into hundreds of dollars of savings for us. I'll order again from here."

"I had purchased Hunter Douglas blinds earlier from Blinds.com, but they are no longer offered on line. The sales rep was very helpful trying to match my previous purchase with this new purchase.
These blinds are nice, but not quite the quality of the HD ones. The fabric isn't as fine and we had a special retractable line which is easy to use. The installation was much more difficult. We believe that the directions were translated from Chinese."

"I love, love, love these blinds! When open, they let so much light into my living room while still maintaining our privacy. I had priced these elsewhere and saved a bundle by ordering through Blinds.com (plus free shipping). They sent me fabric samples so I could choose colors and our salesman Joe was so pleasant and helpful. (Thanks, Joe!)A pleasant experience overall. I highly recommend."

"The blinds are perfect for my windows. They look great. They were very easy to install. It took less than a half an hour. The local store was charging 2-3 times more for the Hunter Douglas brand that was 21/2 inches wide and wanted they $400 to install 3 shades. I actually like the 2 inch width. Great bargain! You can't go wrong with this product!! It was very easy working with the customer service reps."

"We put these blinds up in our living and dining rooms and they look tremendous! We shopped around quite a bit for the best price and Blinds.com beat every other deal hands down. We ended up saving nearly $400 over the price available for the exact blinds through the local warehouse club!!! High quality, name brand blinds at a fraction of the cost elsewhere!"

"I wish the Nantucket style came in top down/bottom up. I originally looked at Silhouettes with another company and wish I would have gotten those instead. I didn't realize that the Nantuckets are either 'up' or 'down' and I either have viewed blocked or totally open.
Shipping and delivery were great...no issues there. I'm just disappointed with the product and would like more view out of my windows."

"We are extremely satisfied with our blinds. We searched in several stores and the price was outrageous so we resigned ourselves to waiting until next year. After a quick search we found exactly what we were looking for at a huge savings and bought them immediately. I installed them easily one afternoon and they are wonderful. Thanks so much."

"The Cape Cod Front Street (a.k.a. Hunter-Douglas Nantuckets) are an absolute steal, and look great in my living room and dining room. I purchased shadings for 9 windows at a cost of just under $2600, which included the fabric covered headrails. At my local Blinds-to-Go, their competing product, which did not include the fabric covered headrails would have cost me $2800. And I got a ridiculous quote through Costco for Hunter-Douglas Silhouettes for $4700. While the Silhouettes are supposed to be the "Gold Standard" for horizontal shadings, I couldn't justify the price difference. Installation was a breeze, and my wife is thrilled with the results! I will definitely buy fom Blinds.com again!!!"

"We just built a new house that required 29 window treatments. After spending as much on the house that we did, I did not look forward to spending another 18,000 on the windows. Price quoted from local Hunter Douglas dealer. Through Blinds.com I saved over 9,000. I installed them myself and it was so easy. I woudd highly suggest that if you are looking to buy these shades that you go through Blinds.com and do it yourself."

"The blinds arrived quickly and in perfect condition. My husband put them up himself and they were very easy to install. The look is just what I wanted, when the blinds are open filtered light comes in, but gives me the privacy I wanted since I live in a townhome development close to other homes. I ordered all my blinds from blinds.com and am 100% satisfied with the products and service."
