Cellular Shade On Sliding Glass Door. Now the shades on your living room window can match your sliding glass door!

Bellagio Window Fashions of Toledo Ohio is offering a new style of cellular shade, solving several home decor challenges with one window treatment.

“If you’re looking for blinds for sliding glass doors, you may want to consider this idea. New trends in window treatments call for a contemporary look. But also important is for homeowners to have more options in how window covering can be customized in order to adapt to their individual requirements,” said Rose Heckman-Hinkle, owner of Bellagio Window Fashions. “Our new 2-inch Hybrid Pleat Shade has some creative design features that have never been available before in one window covering.”

The shade is made of a cellular shade but when mounted in the handrail resembles a Roman Shade because of the over-sized pleats. “And Roman Shades are one of the hottest trends in home décor right now,” said Heckman. “Because of the honeycomb design, this has greater insulation capabilities than a window blind,” she added”.

The Hybrid shade has a vertical design option so that it can be used on sliding glass doors and other large windows. “Many Toledo area homeowners have been asking for window treatment ideas for sliding glass doors,” commented the owner of Bellagio Window Fashions. “And even better, now the window treatments on your sliding glass doors can match the window shades in your living room.”

Another design option is the Tandem Shade, featuring a back liner mounted as roller shades. Adding to the custom-made look, the liner can be made from sheer fabric, screen mesh or blackout fabric. “This way, a homeowner can have cellular shades with blackout material, which is another popular decorating trend in window fashion design. The additional features of the shade make it even more practical than the standard choice of blinds and shades”, added Heckman.

The 2-Inch Pleated shade is available with more control options, including:

Motorized Remote Control – Raising and lowering the window shade by remote control

Cordless Lift – Cordless shades (with no strings) offer a clean look while taking into account child-safety.

Cordless Lift and Lock – A child safety feature that allows the shade to be lowered and raised through the use of a locking button. 

Continuous Cord Loop – Designed to raise and lower shades on larger windows

Two Shades on One Head rail – Two independently functioning window shades sharing the same head rail.

Vertical Window Treatments – An alternative to vertical blinds, a modern design that can be used on sliding glass doors, large living room windows, closets and even as room dividers.

Top-Down/Bottom-Up – Shades that open from top and bottom together or that can be lowered from the top and raised from the bottom for greater privacy and light control.

Trilight Shades – A combination of a pleated, sheer shade on top and a 2″ Hybrid Pleat shade on the bottom, for UV protection and additional privacy.

Heckman concluded with, “The Hybrid Shade is one of the most practical window coverings available on the market. And, they look great! I’m happy that Bellagio Window Fashions in Toledo is able to add this unique shade to our line of custom window treatments.”
