Zebra Blinds Sheer Roller
Sheer roller shade that alternates between sheer view through and privacy fabric bands.

What are Zebra Blinds?

Zebra blinds are roller blinds with sheer fabric. A single piece of fabric has two bands – a sheer band and a fabric band. Bands appear one after another.

The sheer band allows view-through, and the fabric band allows privacy.

Fabric alternates or rolls between sheer view and solid fabric bands. You shift the sheer bands to overlap for most view-through. The solid bands overlap to offer privacy.

The sheer and fabric bands in one fabric allow you to changeover the shade from the open to close position.

Your choice of fabric makes a real difference in decor — beautiful, warm, rich, and inviting.

Why this style is Number 1?

You have a style of blind that allows sheer view, looks modern and is budget-friendly.

The trend for sheer roller shades is ever rising. You lead a busy lifestyle and want to keep your home clean with less.

A well-lit space is not only more inviting but also improves your well-being. Bright rooms make you feel cheerful, more alive and joyous.

Do Zebra blinds allow both see-through and privacy?

Standard roller blinds are in the up or down position. You roll the shade up for the unobstructed view-through or roll down to get privacy.

With this style, you can enjoy the view through sheer portions without rolling up the shade.

But, you may ask — Will they block out the light?

You have two (2) options for blocking out the light or room darkening. Homeowners prefer blocking out the light in the bedroom areas.

  • Option 1: A single shade Shade fabric comes in two opacities — Light Filtering Fabric or Light Blocking Fabric.

The light-blocking fabric has a liner built into the fabric. As you roll the shade up or down, light-blocking fabric bands overlap to offer light blocking or room darkening.

  • Option 2: 2 Shades built into one The other design is to get 2 shades built into one compact casing at the top.

The front shade will be your regular Zebra Shade – Light Filtering Fabric

The light-blocking roller shade is at the back.

You may ask — Do two shades have an independent operation?

Yes, this novel design enables independent operation of both shades. There will be 2 controls to move the respective shades – front or back.

In the day time, you may raise the back shade to have more light filter in through the sheer fabric. As the sun sets, especially during Calgary’s long summer days, you can lower the back shade and block the light for calm sleep.

Both shades fit into one compact casing or header at the top. Please see the following pictures.

How is the cost calculated?

Your home has unique needs, so we need to meet at your home.

Your blinds are custom made and there’s no one-price-fits-all solution.

The factors that decide the cost are:

  • What are the window sizes?
  • What Fabrics/materials and color selections you choose?
  • How you plan to use the blinds – control system choices?
  • What added requirements you have?

Do you install the blinds for us?

Yes, we install the blinds for projects we measured and quoted.

Professional installers will install your blinds.

Our service includes:

  • End-to-end installation services — measuring through installation, installers maintain current product knowledge.
  • On-time appointments, a professional appearance, and skilled craftsmanship.
  • Installing all window coverings to respective product standards, including all safety mechanisms.
  • Demonstration to the consumer of product functions and proper operation.
  • Removing and disposing of the existing window coverings.

What is the warranty?

Suppliers/manufacturers that make these blinds use a high standard of quality for both products and services.

Why do I say that?

Each of our suppliers has a “LIFETIME LIMITED WARRANTY” assurance to make your window coverings experience thoroughly satisfying.

This warranty covers and is inclusive against any defects in material and workmanship to the original purchaser of the products.

How long it takes to get my blinds?

Our blinds will take about two (2) to three (3) weeks from the time you place the order with us.

The installation will happen the next day. Standard installation time is about 4 to 5 hours for an average-size home in Calgary.

Most installations happen within the one day or same-day time frame. If needed, our installers will come the next day to complete the pending installation.

How do I clean these blinds?

You use two (2) simple methods to clean

Use a feather duster – to keep the shades clean and free of dust. You do a regular light dusting.

  • Vacuum with a brush attachment – for deeper cleaning. I suggest using a hand-held vacuum with a low non-heat setting for better results. Go with gentle strokes.
  • Compressed air or hair dryer (non-heat setting) – is another way to dust off the shades.

Please do not use any brushes or materials that are too harsh or abrasive.

If needed, you can engage the professional cleaning service providers to clean your blinds.
