Dual Opacity Blinds

Finding that perfect balance of natural light in your home can be  an issue. With most curtains, it can be too dark, and with most blinds, it can be not enough coverage from the light outside. So is there a happy medium that gives enough soft light, but still provides a soothing darkness? Fortunately, there is! Duolite's dual-opacity blinds give you that perfect two-in-one natural lighting option for maximum comfort in your home. 

What makes these blinds so unique in working this way? On the front panel of the blinds is a light-filtering design. It's sheerness lets in a graceful amount of natural sunlight. The back panel is room-darkening, which of course blocks that natural light from seeping in. With these both on the same roller, it makes a literal day and night difference. 

This type of blind is available in various designs that are all complementary to any household. The use of natural light can help cut down drastically on energy costs as well. Having lights on unnecessarily can rack up the cost of your light bill every month. So why not shut off the lights and let free, natural light come through? The blinds also keep a sense of security from outside looking in, all while allowing those inside to enjoy outside lighting. 

With the Doulite dual-opacity blinds, you have complete control over the lighting in your home. No more spending too much money on curtains that don't quite do the job. No more blinds that are all but transparent. Light up your home the natural way, with these revolutionary blinds!
