Roller Shades offer homeowners a stylish way to filter and diffuse damaging UV rays that cause interior flooring, furnishings, and portraits to fade. Advanced solar-blocking fabrics also reduce energy consumption by minimizing the amount of solar heat gain your home experiences. In return, you will enjoy lower energy costs. You can control how much sunlight comes into the room simply by pulling the shade up or down. There is a large assortment of materials and colors to chose from to find the right style and fabric you desire.
Roman Shades are an extremely popular shade choice, when it comes to window treatments, from the classic soft-fold look to a more modern flat fold, roman shades can dress up any room. This is the type of shade that folds one on top of another. Roman shades create a tailored drapery look. There are many choices of luxury fabrics from textured transparent to opaque, including sheer, light filtering, room darkening and solar screen.
Honeycomb or Cellular Shades
As the name would imply, honeycomb shades create a honeycomb formation (from the side) when completely closed. These air pockets help add a layer of insulation. There are easy lift systems to choose from, allowing you to further customize your window coverings. Honeycomb shades also come in a variety of colors and styles. Honeycomb shades are used to cover any type of window, including skylights, french doors and patio doors.
Woven Wood Shades
An assortment of woods is available for woven wood shades including bamboo, hemp and even jute. We can also add liners for additional privacy or light control. Woven woods are an ideal way to make a sophisticated room feel more comfortable, casual, and inviting.
This is best described as a combination of honeycomb and roman shades. The pleated fabric creates the side honeycomb and then folds up on itself when the shades are opened.
Benefits of Having Shades
Custom window shades have many benefits. Here are a few of the top benefits to consider:
- Energy Efficiency: They block out the cold or hot weather from outside, keeping your home’s interior comfortable, while also reducing your utility bills.
- UV Protection: Many window shades block up to 95% of harmful UV rays, saving your furniture, carpet, and rugs from fading and damage.
- Light Filtering: A little natural light is great, but too much light can be too bright and too harsh. It may even cause glare on your TV or computer screen. Light filtering window shades can give that soft, warm glow.
I absolutely love my shades. I’m so glad I went with a mix of light filtering, room darkening, motorized and non-motorized. I am grateful for the guidance provided by Tom. It was clear he was extremely knowledgeable, and not at all pushy. The office has been quick to respond to emails and phone calls and has been extremely helpful. And I have also very much appreciated Robert’s help in tweaking the placement of my shades so they are just right given the challenges associated with my windows. I have nothing but great things to say about Texas Shutters and Blinds. After getting bids from 3 different providers, I am thrilled that I ended up working with this team of true professionals. Thank you all for the excellent service – even after the sale.
