    Sheer and blackout shade orientation

    Hi what is the best practice when laying out windows which will have both sheer and blackout shades. Which shade should be closer to the window the blackout or the sheer and why?

    Thanks for your help!

    Generally when we have a dual-mount (two shades covering the same window) application, the blackout shade would be closest to the window. This would minimize the light gap between the blackout shade edge and the window frame.

    One exception to this would be when we are using side channels with the blackout shade. Side channel is often placed on or under the wall trim around the window. This could leave space between the blackout and the glass to hide the sheer. The site will sometimes determine the best application.

    This makes good sense!
