Also known as zebra shades, this window treatment style alternates sheer and solid fabric, giving a striped pattern.

    Control Light & Privacy

    Zebra Shades Put You In Charge

    Zebra roller shades give you complete control over light and privacy. In the fully closed position, the shades are private. With the light filtering fabrics, light can still come through the zebra shades in the closed position while maintaining privacy. With the room darkening fabrics, minimal light comes through the shades.

    When the shades are in the open position, you get a view outside in both light filtering and room darkening fabrics. These roller shades can also be fully raised for maximum view.

    What our clients have to say

    Wonderful experience from initial consultation to installation. I shopped around and A Shade Above has the best prices, huge variety, great price ranges and really nice customer service. They were prompt and reliable, sticking exactly to the timeline we agreed to. The gentleman who installed our shades was exactly on time, worked fast, super polite and professional. We had a slight issue installing one shade and he drove 50 mins to get the part needed to finish and came back same day.
