The Blinds.com Light Filtering Roller Shade brings a contemporary ambiance to soft filtered light and privacy. Our wide variety of soft whites, neutrals, bold and vibrant colors, patterns and textures can enhance the look and feel of your window in any room. These shades block out harsh glaring sunlight and damaging UV rays from entering into your room, protecting your floors and furnishing, as well as reducing the amount of heat entering into your home. Complete the look by concealing the roller at the top of your shade with a cassette or cornice upgrade. The square cassette is available in white or grey aluminum, which will aesthetically match the square hembar and will cover the roller completely to provide a modern look. The semi-open cassette comes wrapped in the fabric you choose for your shade and includes coordinated hardware. This cassette won’t completely cover the roller, but it hides the installation hardware to provide a clean finish. The fabric-wrapped cornice is a separate component that covers the top of your shade and comes wrapped in the fabric that you choose for your shade. The cornice can be installed inside the window with your shade, or outside your window with an outside or inside mounted shade.

The plastic continuous cord loop chain control is the standard lift or you can customize your shade to fit your needs. Spring assist, a heavy-duty beaded chain lift system, is required on larger shades. Upgrade to cordless which is great for homes with children and pets as well as offering a clean look, or select motorized lift for the difficult to reach windows with the touch of a button.

Install Time: 12 – 15 minutes

We Recommend:

  • If you would like the fabric of your shade to feed over the top rather than the back, choose reverse roll at no extra charge. Also, ideal for shades that need to pass in front of a window or handle.
  • Add a valance to your shade for a complete look in your window.
  • For inside mounts, you can avoid light gaps on the side of your shades with light gap blockers, which is a window frame add on with a sticky backing that can be applied to your window easily. Or pair your shades with drapery.


  • Inside mount shades will have a light gap on each side of the shade which will allow light through the side.
  • Light filtering shades do reveal silhouettes to the street at night. For enhanced privacy and maximum light control, consider a blackout roller shade.

Child Safety: This product can be made safer for windows where children and pets may be present by upgrading to the cordless or motorized control. All other lift controls available for this product have cords that may be accessible and are not recommended for windows where children or pets may be present.
