Q:Can you send me a recommendation on a top down shade without a cord being shown from the top down shade? I don't need the bottom to go up - just the top down.
A:Standard top down bottom up window shades offer multiple cords. One cord on each side of the shade, one to operate the top down feature and the other to raise the shades in the traditional manner.
The top down bottom up or duofold upgrade gives the shades a unique advantage. By lowering the top portion of the blinds, light is allowed to enter the room while still providing privacy.
Adding the cordless option removes the lift cords from the shades and makes the window shade operate without pulling a cord. Simply grasp the bottom rail of the blinds and lift to raise the window shades. To lower them from the top down grasp the top of the window shades and pull down. This cordless option is perfect for child safety.
There are some drawbacks however to the cordless option. For taller windows or for those of us who are not so tall, reaching the top of the window shades to lower them or to raise the shades to the entire height of the windows can be a challenge. This can be overcome with the use of a pole or a step stool or maybe just a tall friend.
