Your Window Shade Options

When it comes time to choose window shades for your home, there are several available choices. There are several types of shade with different styles and features. They are also available in a wide range of prices. They include roller & solar shades, cellular shades, and roman shades. The roller shade is probably the most basic of all options, but these can include some interesting features. They consist of a flat piece of fabric or vinyl that is simply rolled up to expose the window. Some styles have a very elegant look, all of ours come with a valance to hide the hardware at the top. They range from blackout to sheer. Solar shades are actually a type of roller shade. They are like a screen that you pull down over the window to reduce glare and solar heat gain. These are nice because you can still see out the window, sort of like looking through sunglasses. They are energy efficient and stylish, available in a variety of fabrics, colors, and even patterns. The cellular shade, also known as the honeycomb shade, is the most energy efficient option available. It consists of two or three layers of fabric, made into cells which resemble honeycombs. Air is trapped in these cells, creating a layer which blocks cold or heat from escaping in or out. It is an even better insulator than its pleated counterpart, but it does tend to cost a bit more. The Roman shade is popular because of its attractiveness. These are made in both flat and hobbled (or tear drop) styles, and they come in many different colors and fabrics. There is a Roman style shade out there to match any decor. They are also available in a wide range of prices, because they can be constructed of so many different fabrics, from polyester blends to fine silk. Obviously, if you are in the market for window shades, then you have some options open to you. All you need to do is consider what benefits you are looking for, as well as your budget. With this many options, anyone is sure to be able to find the perfect shade.
