Specialized window treatments

At Imperial Blind & Shutter, we know that you want nothing short of perfect. Window treatments are a significant investment, and you want window coverings that are perfectly suited to your home. In addition to our full range of Hunter Douglas brands, we also offer specialized window treatment systems to tailor your shades to your home. If you’re searching for anything from unrivaled light control to modern design, these specialty window treatments might be the solution for you.

Hunter Douglas Vignette® Modern Roman Shades Top-Down/Bottom-Up specialized window treatment near Venice, Florida (FL).


One of our favorite specialty window treatments, Top-Down/Bottom-up Shades, is the top of the line for privacy and light control. Capable of being pulled from the bottom up as well as down from the top, these shades cover as much (or as little) of the window as you wish.

The flexibility of Top-Down/Bottom-Up shades carries three main benefits: first, it allows you ultimate control. Your rooms will always have exactly as much light as you desire. You can let the light stream in throughout the afternoon, then reorganize for a soft diffused glow during the evening.

Second, you have unparalleled privacy without sacrificing natural light. Cover the bottom half of your windows while leaving the top open for privacy and Vitamin D.

Third, temperature control. By being able to limit some but not all sunlight, keeping your rooms comfortable will be more accessible than ever.

Top-Down/Bottom-Up is available in these brands:

  • Alustra® Woven Textures®
  • Applause®
  • Duette®
  • Provenance®
  • Solera®
  • Vignette®
