Horizontal Flat Sheer Shades

A more affordable alternative to traditional Sheer Shades. Horizontal Flat Sheer Shades provide the style of a sheer shade with the efficiency of a roller shade.  The horizontal light filtering or blackout stripes alternate with sheer fabric stripes.  The unique striped design allows you to position the stripes to give a sheer open view or closed for privacy or blackout.  The shade can also be fully raised for a totally unobstructed view. Order custom size on windows up to 94″ wide and 94″ high.

How to Measure Horizontal Flat Sheer Shades

Inside Mount

  • Mounted within the window frame
  • Provides a clean, built-in look
  • Great way to leave attractive woodwork exposed
  • Minimum depth required for secure inside mount: 3/4"
  • Depth required for inside flush mount: 3" without fascia: 4 1/4" with fascia
  • If window frame isn't deep enough, please select outside mount

Outside Mount

  • Great option when there is not enough depth for an inside mount
  • Mounted to the wall, ceiling or molding surface surrounding the window
  • Often used to make the window appear larger or to hide a less attractive window or door
  • No minimum depth requirement
  • Minimum of 1 1/2" flat surface (on wall, ceiling or frame) required for secure outside mount. Be sure to take into account the flat mounting surface area when measuring the area you want to cover with your shade. The factory will make the bracket to bracket width at the top of your roller shade to the width ordered. The fabric will be 7/8" to 1-3/8" narrower (based on the overall size of the shade) than the width ordered.

Measuring for Inside Mount

STEP 1: Measure the inside width the top of the window opening (where you will mount the shade). We will make the necessary deductions (approx. 1/8").

STEP 2: Measure the height at 3 locations - the left side, middle and right side. Record the largest of the 3 measurements. This is your ordering height.

NOTE: Solar shade fabrics will be approximately 7/8" to 1-3/8" narrower (varies by the size of the shade) than your ordering width to allow for brackets. If concerned over resulting light gap please select outside mount.

Measuring for Outside Mount

STEP 1: Measure the width of the area you wish to cover. If space allows we recommend adding 2-3" (1-1 1/2" each side) to this measurement to help eliminate light seepage. This is your ordering width. The factory will make the bracket to bracket width at the top of your shade to the ordered width. The fabric will be 7/8" to 1-3/8" narrower (based on the overall size of the shade) than the ordered width.

STEP 2: Measure the height of the area you wish to cover. This is your ordering height. Be sure to take into account the 1 1/2" flat mounting surface needed when measuring the area you want to cover with your shade. The factory will make your shade (including the roller at the top or the cassette valance, if ordered) to the height ordered. Generally 3" - 4" added to the height of your opening (including molding or framework you wish to cover) will allow you room to mount above the window frame.

NOTE: Solar shade fabrics will be approximately 7/8" to 1-3/8" narrower (varies by the size of the shade) than your ordering width to allow for brackets. If you need the fabric of your shade to cover a specific width (e.g. for mounting a shade on a door) add 1-3/8" inches to your ordered width to make sure you fabric is wide enough to cover your window opening.

Puzzled

It's a clever design for filtered and blocked light, but the order screen offered a "Blackout" option which I checked. It's certainly not a blackout shade.

I'm sorry you aren't completely happy with your shades. When we use the term "blackout" that means that the light will not penetrate the fabric used. With most window coverings that means that there will be light that filters around the shade on the edges.
With the flat sheer shades, light will not penetrate the solid pieces of fabric. However, they will obviously penetrate the sheer mesh. Also, there will be radiant light that will show through the gaps between the stripes of fabric.
You can return these shades under our Satisfaction Guarantee for a refund.
I will contact you directly to discuss all of your options.

Perfect

I did not know what to expect regarding these shades. BUT they were perfect for two bedrooms. They give the darkness when needed. But they can also let light in the room. Installation was easy and they looked perfect set into the window.

flat shades

I like all the colors I chose. I only wish the color chosen for Master bedroom blocked more light. The lighter colored shade chosen for office gives the light I desired but one of the flat shade pieces has a run in it. It goes all the way across. We didn't notice it until it was installed and we were using the chain to raise the shade. Over all I like the look and won't be adding drapes.

Smart looking

Unique design gives you a shear and a solid in a role shade design. We installed on the inside of window for a different and less formal look, shades fit perfectly.

Great product, Amazing Company!

We have palladian windows (arch on top) and I was concerned with how to mount the sheer shades. The team at Blindster went out of the way to explain what/how to do it. The sheer shades are very nice quality and super easy to install. Even though I measured incorrectly they are sending me 2 new blinds for only $15ea and asked that I donate the blinds that don't fit rather then sending them back to be reused. In a world where customer service is a thing of the past, Blindster goes out of their way to help. . . Supremely satisfied!

Great Product!

Whole experience was very pleasant, I will definitely use Blindster in the future.
Only comment that I would add is that it would be great if there were more pictures of actual products in different colors, b/c the swatches are not exactly showing accurately. Other than that - great experience!
