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.

This is a good buy.These blinds are very attractive and catch everyone's attention when they come in the room - whether the vanes are closed or open. They are soft-looking and the cats' fur doesn't stick to them. They are much lighter to lift while installing than duet shades and you definitely need two people for wider windows.While they're more expensive than duet shades, they're worth it. See the attached picturesDecember 10, 2006
Cape Cod Front StreetThis was an excellent choice for my bedroom. These blinds are beautiful and classy. The blue color looks like the sky with white clouds. Very unique window coverings. Simple yet beautiful.December 15, 2009
Great Cape Cod BlindsWe 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!April 22, 2007
Very Nice and good PriceWe 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.April 10, 2009
Adds character to your roomI purchased these blinds for a kitchen and dining room window. I wanted something I could open and let light in, but still have privacy. These blinds do a great job at that. For the money they are a really good purchase. The light filtering does let light in during the day, but keep the heat out by blocking the UV. The blinds are easy to open and close and look great. I would only recommend these for areas you want light control and not black out or very dark. They do let ambient light in so make sure these are in an area you want light. They do give you total privacy at night time. You can see there are lights on inside, but you can't see through the fabric at all.My only complaint is the sheer fabric is glossy so when direct sunlight hits it, it makes it very difficult to see out the window. With non direct light, they are not a problem, but with direct light they are hard to see through. Other than that these are great. Installation was easy. They do mount on the top so be prepared for that. I have received many compliments on them so be prepared for the Wow factor from your friends!January 9, 2013
nice!I finally took the plunge and ordered sheers for the entire house. Was living in a fishbowl until now. I did have my cousin install them for me but all went well overall. He did purchase some anchors or heavier screws I think? We live in FL and have block construction which can be tricky when installing blinds/curtains, anything into the wall though. They look great and let light into the home, which is what I wanted. Privacy while maintaining the light in the house. I purchased the whitest white I could find. Free samples were just what I needed. Works well, looks great. One think I didn't realize was that in order to open the sheers they need to be all the way down, so you can't have the sheers "open" and half raised. I'm OK with this though - but I thought I'd mention it in case that were important to someone out there. Packing was easy to remove. Nothing damaged in shipping and EVERYTHING was labeled correctly, matching the nicknames for windows/rooms I set when I made my purchase.June 25, 2013
Love the light filteringThe 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.July 9, 2011
Great Product at a Great Price!!!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!!!May 7, 2008
NantucketI 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.October 20, 2009
Outstanding ValueI purchased Hunter Douglas windows coverings on three different orders within a 90 day period. Each order was received on time. Installation instructions were very simple and actual installation was a snap. I have recommended Blinds.com to several of my friends. Excellent service and product for a great price.May 20, 2007
Cape Cod Light FilteringAfter having 30 yr old verticle blinds - we started to change out the window treatments. I had wanted to get the Hunter Douglas - but the cost was beyond what I could manage. I had also checked some other online sites, and blinds to go. I decided to try the Cape Cod light filtering in two windows in the family room based on price. Love, love, love them. My husband installed in no time at all. The only thing that I can say comparing them to Hunter Douglas is that they are not as "see thru" as HD when open - and the material for the horizontal "slats" doesn't seem to be the same quality. But this shouldn't deter any one - it is very equivalent -- much, much more affordable. We also purchased the Mystique verticles for our sliding doors. I plan to do the rest of the house with the Cape Cod.March 7, 2012
Cape Cod Front StreetI am very pleased with these shades. I looked at the big name brands locally and ordered from Blinds.com because the cost was less. I was very excited to see that my new blinds were exactly the same quality as what I had seen in the blind stores where I live. If you are somewhat handy and are skilled at hanging window treatments, then you will be able to hang these shades. They have a soft cloth material in your choice of colors, with a wonderful sheer lace netting overlay and a quality neutral felt like material facing the street. Close for complete privacy or open for filtered lighting. Can be raised to expose the entire window as well.November 15, 2006
My wife and our four children live in an beautiful 4000 square foot house with lots of windows, 24 of which need blinds. To make a long story short our builder robbed us of over $150,000 and have been in struggling emotionally and financially trying to build the house for the past three years. My oldest daughter even considered submitting us for extreme home makeover before the show got as big as it is. We now have lived there for almost a year with NOT ONE BLIND on any of the windows. Not in the bathrooms or bedrooms. We have received several quotes for complete blind packages. A local rep for 3day blinds quoted us over six thousand dollars for all the blinds in our house. There is no way my wife and I can afford that after what we have been through. So we ordered one blind from your company to see how the process worked out. We were nervous because of the return policy, but figured we would give it a try. We ordered one for the large window looking into our bathroom, over the tub. A very important blind to have. I received it a few weeks ago and finally hung it up on mothers day while my wife was returning from a trip. It took me a few minutes to understand the directions, but then I had it up in less than 5 minutes. It looked great but I did not tell her that I hung it. As she walked through the bathroom she saw the blind and jumped into my arms, almost crying from joy! She was soooo happy. It made her feel at home and finally safe in the bathroom. I felt the same way, I never thought a blind would make such a difference, but it did. We will soon be ordering blinds for the three bedrooms the kids share, and then move on from there.May 28, 2006
Best Blinds Ever and Unbelievable Savings!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.June 3, 2010
Just like my other orders, I could not be happier with your service, products and value. This particular order was a little more difficult than past, as I was doing a custom built in installation. Your sales associate was VERY VERY helpful and patiently answered all my questions thoroughly. Not your usual 1-800 salesperson! Pass along my Thanks!March 26, 2006
Smart BuyThe 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.November 13, 2010
Great update to our formal living roomI saw this style on several commercials and home improvement shows. I looked for it on Blinds.com and ordered samples first. We chose the color that worked best for our home and placed the order. They came within the 7-10 day shipping estimate and we love them. Once we read through the install instructions, we were able to install with no trouble and me and my husband are very pleased with the outcome. It makes quite an impact in this room. I have ordered from blinds.com in the past and have always been pleased with the product. For this particular style, there is an optional dust cover for the back of the valance. I needed this because the back of the blind faces the front entrance of our home and you could see the brackets while standing at the front door. I called blinds.com to inquire. They called the factory and discovered these are optional and would send to me at no charge. Super happy they would accommodate.July 22, 2013
Great ExperienceI purchased a total of 4 shades - 2 for the dining room (inside mount) and 2 for my bedroom (outside mount). I was really nervous about purchasing such a large dollar amount online and what the final product would look like. I am happy to say the box arrived earlier than expected with complete and easy installation. My husband had nothing bad to say regarding the installation process not to mention my windows look great. All in all a great purchase and I hope to be purchasing more in the future.November 27, 2006
similar to Hunter DouglasI 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.August 24, 2010
Save Big MoneyWe 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.December 21, 2007
