Roller Shades

Homeowners who prefer the no-frills approach to their decor are sure to enjoy the clean look of basic roller shades. While they have a simple design, these shades are available in a variety of different options to please everyone. Even if you like window treatments with a bit of personality, you’ll likely find that roller shades are made with a generous variety of styles and materials.

Roman Shades

Bali Roman shades are a step up from roller shades. In addition to being undoubtedly stylish, you can also operate your Roman shades with the press of a button. The advantage of this is you can lift or lower your shades all at the same time, and you can program them to lift at a specific time of day to add a bit of dramatic flair to your home decor. Much like roller shades, Roman shades are made with several different fabrics and types, including relaxed, ballooned and hobbled.

Solar Shades

Homeowners who have furniture or other items to protect from the sun’s damaging UV rays are sure to be well-pleased with solar shades. Even greater is the fact that solar shades can soften the harsh light in your home, making it easier on your eyes as well as the overall visual appeal of the room in which they’re placed. Much like Roman shades, you can raise or lower solar shades to perfectly fit your tastes and needs.

Never doubt the design power of quality window treatment shades. They can be just the thing needed to truly pull a room together or make your home more energy efficient.
