Norman® SmartDrape™ Shades in Clayton, NC

Norman® SmartDrape™ Shades are an elegant, practical way to filter light through your windows. Anything but basic, these innovative sheer shades have a stylish twist that makes them one of the most unique products we offer.

About Norman® SmartDrape™ Shades

Southern Accent Shutters and Blinds in Clayton, North Carolina, carries the full line of Norman® SmartDrape™ shades. Known for its high-quality craftsmanship, Norman® is an industry leader in award-winning product designs, safety-enhancing techniques, selection, and value. With SmartDrape™, you can transition from sheer, softly patterned material to solid in seconds. SmartDrape™ is a modern development for old-fashioned vertical blinds. Its refined shades feature sheer and fabric vane construction; they softly undulate to create a floating effect. You easily stack them open or closed by sliding a control wand across the shades, so there’s no need for a cord.

When your SmartDrape™ shades are open to the sheer side, you’ll have a clear view through the window. When you close them, the vanes will darken the room or filter out light, depending on the chosen fabric. We offer in-home and virtual consultations so you can see exactly how well they work before you purchase them.

Norman® SmartDrape™ Shades Features and Benefits

Here are a few of the many benefits and significant features of Norman® SmartDrape™ Shades:

"Best for Kids" Certification

Norman® SmartDrape™ shades are cordless, so you won’t have to worry about safety. Kids and pets can run through them without getting caught up in cords. The clever design also makes running a vacuum beneath these shades easier than with conventional vertical shades.

They're Wide Enough for Sliding Glass Doors

SmartDrapes™ come in wide widths that can cover openings up to 12 feet, making them perfect for large windows, deck, and patio doors. You can combine these sheer shades for even larger applications if necessary.

  • Minimum dimensions for one SmartDrapes™ window covering: 12” W x 24” H
  • Maximum dimensions for one SmartDrapes™ window covering: 189” W x 120” H

You Can Walk Right Through Them

Even though these shades are simple enough to operate, you don’t need to close them before walking through. And since the material also prevents insects from coming inside, you don’t need to keep opening and closing them every time you walk out. Imagine not needing to do that when constantly going back and forth to check on the grill, your kids, or your pets. Dogs and cats can also go in and out at their leisure!

You Have Many Colors to Choose From

Choose from 32 trending neutrals with different opacities, ranging from white and ivory to gray and charcoal. Then, combine them with plain or subtly patterned fabrics.

They're Easy to Clean

  • Remove the fabric from the clip, fold it, and place it in mesh laundry bags
  • Place them in the washing machine and use a cold water, gentle cycle, without extra spin
  • Use mild detergent; avoid using any bleach products
  • Remove the fabric from the bags and hang them to dry indoors near a fan.
  • If the material is wrinkled, iron them in nylon mode
  • Reattach the fabric to the clips
