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 room-darkening solids
, textures, and linen fabrics. Or view the Cape Cod Light Filtering Collection
to get light-filtering patterns and colors that allow more 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.
