I'm looking at shades something like this:

https://www.blinds.com/p/levolor-lig...B&gclsrc=aw.ds

I really like the appearance of cordless shades. But I think that I'll only rarely be raising them because the main reason I want this style of shade is to be able to tilt the shades to get nearly "clear" to mostly translucent light filtering.

My question is, do cordless shades still have a wand to tilt the blinds? I just can't tell for sure in any of the pictures I've seen. All the descriptions talk only about how to raise and lower but don't address tilting. Those of you with similar blinds, how do they work?

We put them up in our dining room. Love them, and we use all the methods between closed for night, sheer open for light filter and all the way up for windows open. The way they operate is that you have a continous cord on the side of your choosing and when the shade is all the way down then you can pull it ab it more to open up to the light filtering. Otherwise they are shut as you pull it up. In other words they will not open for light filtering when partially raised.

Bali makes a shade we are looking at for the kitchen called Layered that allows filtering no matter what level the shades are at. You lose the 3D effect of the sheet but they really are quite attractive.

Interesting concept - they're very reasonably priced but I see what you mean about losing the dimensionality.

Anyway, glad to hear about the tilting on the other blinds. But if it using a cord to adjust the tilt, then I wonder why I'd pay more to get "cordless" for raising the blinds? That seems like a waste.
