BENEFITS OF USING WINDOW SHADES
TYPE OF SHADES
Roman shades are a timeless kind of window covering. They are made of soft folds of fabric that stack up at the top of the window with a sidewinder and chain. Roman shades make a great alternative to curtains, especially if you are looking for a way to insulate rooms that have the tendency to get chilly. They can be used for any kind of room in your home, no matter the type, from Victorian to mid-century modern.
Roller shades are what the name suggests – fabric shades that are designed to roll around a hollow tube to be operated. Instead of folding like roman shades, they roll up and down around the tube through various mechanisms. They are a classic window covering that provides a clean, simple look through different kinds of patterns, textures, and colors for variety.
Cellular shades are one of the most popular kinds of shades because of their versatility and variety. They are constructed with honeycomb-shaped air pockets that help provide an added layer of insulation that boosts energy efficiency in the room. Cellular shades come in single-cell or double-cell options and can be operated from both the top and bottom.
Transition shades are the best kind of window shade for privacy and protection. They provide the same benefits that blinds do when they are opened, which helps in protecting you and your furniture from harmful UV rays. Transition shades can also be motorized to allow more light control where you need it, even on windows in hard-to-reach areas.
