What Are Zebra Blinds & Shades?

Zebra blinds and shades are a unique style of window covering that uses layered fabrics to create alternating bands of sheer and solid fabric on a single window shade. This gives you two options for light control and light filtering while maintaining privacy. Unlike traditional roller shades, which can only be rolled up or down, zebra blinds combine the technology of mini blinds with the aesthetics of roller shades to create the perfect blend. You can tailor the amount of natural light coming into each room to your needs and easily adjust each shade’s light filtering and privacy functions. Because of their distinctive design, zebra blinds and window shades offer a lot of versatility. Their unique appearance also makes them a conversation starter and the focal point of any room.

How Do Zebra Blinds Work?

Layered zebra blinds are very simple to operate. Because they are a hybrid window treatment, they allow you to control light filtering and privacy needs at each window. The shades have alternating bands of solid and sheer material, so adjusting the shades allows you to let light in or increase your privacy with just one move. The fabric rolls up or down over a tube when you use the cord or pull bar on the shades. As the bands of fabric pass over the tube, you can line up all solid or all sheer fabric to let light in or block it out. You combine sheer and solid fabric bands when the shades are completely unrolled. This allows you to transition from sheer to solid window treatments in just an instant, as easily as it is to tilt the slats of window blinds.

How to Clean Zebra Blinds

Cleaning and caring for zebra blinds is simple and easy. When you care for your window treatments, they will look better and last longer. You don’t need fancy tools, products, or cleaning solutions to care for your zebra blinds. After installation, our team will walk you through how to clean zebra blinds and shades and the best methods for care and maintenance:

  • While your blinds are rolled all the way down, dust them each week with a dry feather duster or microfiber cloth.
  • If your blinds have dust buildup, you can use the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner, but make sure it is on the lowest setting.
  • If your blinds have a spot or stain, you can spot clean them with white vinegar or a bleach-free stain remover.
  • If your blinds or shades are soiled, you should remove them from the windows and lay them on a flat surface. Spot clean them or use a soft sponge soaked in warm water and a gentle detergent to wash the blinds from top to bottom.
  • Never put your blinds in the washing machine or dryer.
