Move over, blinds and cellular shades, roller shades are taking a growing share of window covering sales.
These are not your grandmother's cheapo vinyl shades. Modern shades come in a variety of textures and colors with your choice of a sleek metal fascia or cassette valance.
They check all the boxes:
Easy to Maintain
Solar shades also offer excellent insulation while preserving the view. Plus, they are clean lined and minimal. Since they hang vertically, there are not any horizontal surfaces to collect dust.
Shades are available in varying degrees of "openess" from tightly woven 1% shades to breezy 14% open shades. The openess refers to the amount of UV the shades let through.
When selecting a color for shades, keep in mind that lighter shades are harder to see though and will obscure the outside view more than darker shades. However, the lighter shades will offer more cooling because they will not absorb the heat as much as darker shades.
When it comes to reducing glare on televisions and monitors, mid-tone and dark shades are a better option.
Here's a recent Blind Man install of a roller shade in a Scandinavian inspired interior. This shade is in a white metal fasica. It is a 3% open shade in Solace White. Available with a manual or motorized control.
