Roller Shades For Windows

When it comes to window treatments, one big trend is a clean and simple look. This is why you’ll see roller shades are the preferred option for many homeowners. Aside from looking clean and simple, roller shades provide many benefits like privacy, security, energy savings, and an overall attractive aesthetic. Whether it’s a living room, bedroom, kitchen, or dining room, roller shades are a great way to add some flair to the interior of your home.

At its most basic, roller shades are retractable window coverings that run over a tube and can be operated with a tassel that’s attached to a roller function. Unlike conventional blinds, roller shades use a solid sheet of material to cover the window pane rather than a set of slats or vanes. This uncomplicated design allows for a lot of options for fabrics and materials. Depending on the room, you can either pick a neutral shade and fabric to give the area some texture, or go all-out and make a statement with an attention-grabbing design and pattern.

Types Of Roller Shades

Outdoor Roller Shades

Because of the summer heat, outdoor roller shades have become a staple in many backyards. Outdoor roller shades, also called patio shades, are typically made of screening or shading material that will not fade or wear out easily, and that can handle direct UV rays. Because of this, they are a popular choice for protecting exterior spaces such as patios, backyards, and balconies, from intense sunlight. Another purpose of outdoor shades is to help you save money on your heating and cooling bills. They can keep the interior of your home warm during winter, or keep it cool by reflecting heat back outside.

Light-Filtering Roller Shades

Light-filtering roller shades are made from material that is designed to diffuse light all over a room and give it a warm and welcoming glow. These shades have a simple, clean, and minimalist design, and are a popular choice for bedrooms, living rooms, entryways, and spaces where you want natural light to be evenly spread while preventing direct views from the outside.

Room Darkening Roller Shades

Light-filtering roller shades are a great choice for a wide range of rooms where you want natural light, but if you want to block out direct light and make the room feel a little more private and secluded, then room darkening roller shades might be a better choice. While light-filtering roller shades provide a soft, welcoming glow, room darkening roller shades block out light to make a room feel darker and more serene. Room darkening roller shades come in a wide range of fabrics, styles, and colors to suit any room. They are made from a material designed to block enough light to allow you to take an afternoon nap, but not enough to make the room pitch black.

Black Out Roller Shades

While room darkening shades stop short of providing total darkness, blackout roller shades are designed to prevent almost all-natural light from entering a space. They will typically have dark backing or extra lining to block out light completely. This makes them great for bedrooms, home cinemas, or any room you want to keep dark for some practical need. Perhaps you work at night and need to block the morning sun or maybe you need to keep a particular room pitch black to protect expensive artwork. Whatever your reasons may be, blackout roller shades are a great choice if you need a room to be nearly pitch black, with no light leaking from the outside.

Motorized Roller Shades

Additionally, roller shades can be motorized to make them more convenient to use. If your window is particularly high, or if it's designed in a way that does not allow easy access to the raising mechanism, then you might find this feature to be essential. Roller shades automation can allow you to close your shades from a distance or schedule it to open or close while you're out of sight or on vacation.
