Top Down – Bottom Up

I was helping an agent with a listing that hasn’t sold yet, and one of the simple, yet dramatically effective things I did was rearrange the blind openings. This is particularly important for view property and any property where cars or the street show when you raise the blinds from the bottom up.

If you see two sets of strings, one on the right and one on the left, this usually means they are “Top Down-Bottom Up” blinds. This type of window treatment allows you to cover the low portion of cars going by, but let in light and sky and sometimes tree tops from the top view.

They are great for view property if the windows are low and tall, because they allow you to enjoy the view from the inside without the neighbors seeing you in your boxers 🙂
