Abigail Sawyer | 01 Jul 2013 | Cellular Shades

Find the perfect balance between privacy and a great view.  Get a sheer pleated shade and cellular shade in one with our new Trilight option.

If you love the look of our best top down bottom up shades but need more security, this is the perfect window covering for you.

Try Trilight

In the past you’ve had to choose between letting in light and maintaining privacy. Top-down/bottom-up shades let in light from the top, but why not give your windows even more versatility?

Privacy window shades for the bathroom

Trilight White and Light Filtering Ocean

Our innovative new Trilight fabric is a sheer, lightly textured pleated shade that can be paired with light filtering or blackout cellular fabric. Crisp, larger-than-normal pleats allow for a clearer view outside, but give daytime privacy from the exterior. They also provide UV protection that will keep your family and furniture safe from sun damage.

Get More From Your Windows

Pleated cellular shades

Both fabrics can be extended to cover the full height of the window, or adjusted anywhere in the middle for custom light control. Lowering shades from the top is a more efficient use of light, but Top-Down/Bottom-Up can look incomplete with exposed cords. Trilight gives you a tailored finished look with all the versatility of Top-Down/Bottom-Up.

The Ultimate in Light Control

Blackout shades for bedroom

Trilight Cocoa and Blackout Dark Brown

A Trilight-Blackout combination is the most popular choice. Perfect for bedrooms, nurseries or media rooms, this pairing gives you the choice of complete darkness, gently filtered daylight, or a clear view outside when the shade is completely raised.

Find the Perfect Match

Mix and match Trilight and cellular fabrics in over 40 coordinating shades for a stylish and versatile look. Because subtle differences in color can be hard to represent digitally, we recommend ordering free samples to see them in person. However, below are the combinations we recommend for the closest match.

Recommended Trilight color combinations

Build the custom shade that’s perfect for your home with the choice of traditional corded or cordless lift controls. A corded shade can allow for easier operation in wide windows, but cordless is recommended for safety in homes with children or pets.

Trilight Is Now Available For:

Light Filtering Cellular Shades

Room Darkening Cellular Shades
