String Routing in a Top Down – Bottom Up Honeycomb Shade


At first glance, a Top-Down, Bottom-Up Honeycomb Shade may seem complicated, as far as the string routing.  But, truth be known, it’s a lot simpler than it looks.

Basically, in a Top-Down, Bottom-Up Honeycomb Shades, the strings connected to the Bottom Rail go up through the shade, through the Middle Rail, into the Top Rail, and out one side.  The strings that connect to the Middle Rail go into the Top Rail, and out the side opposite the strings that connect to the Bottom Rail.  (See Diagrams)

Some differences between brands would be:

  • Cord locks – some have the strings coming out the front, while some out the side
  • Where and how the strings are tied off in the Bottom and Middle Rails
  • Which side is ‘Top-Down’, and which side is ‘Bottom-Up’

Here are a couple diagrams:
