Roller Shades: For Simplicity and Convenience
Roller shades happen to be one of the more popular shading styles for homeowners. Their setup involves fabric coiled around a rod that rolls up or lowers down in a moment’s notice.
These come in a variety of fabric options, including colorful, sheer, and complete blackout. Vivid shades can add a lovely complementary vibrancy to any space, such as the living room or bedroom. While sheer ones, on the other hand, allow more light in minus harmful UV rays that could damage valuable artwork and furniture in the same area. These are perfect for the kitchen or high up bathroom windows.
Dark, blackout roller shades are ideal for dedicated home theater. They’ll encompass the viewers in total darkness, mimicking the feel of a commercial cinema’s atmosphere.
And when you incorporate dual shading, homeowners can get the best of both worlds. If they want sheer shades in their multi-purpose media room when they’re not using their entertainment system, they can have those blinds lowered. But once they’re ready to start a movie, they can push a button and have the blackout shades lower instead.
Roller shades are also convenient because homeowners will have the choice between hardwired ones, or long-lasting battery-powered shades that are much easier to install and are nearly silent when working.
Pleated Shades: A Modern Look
These blinds have an angular, contemporary look to them, and are also available in many fabric types and colors.
What separates them from roller shades is in how they’re raised or lowered. Instead of the fabric coiling around a rod, the “pleats” of the shades collapse and lay into the next one as the blinds raise up.
Z-shaped pleated shades add flair to your design and are a perfect fit for a modernized home. Coming in colors, sheer, and translucent fabrics, they can elevate any space.
Honeycomb Shades: Insulation Throughout the Year
Honeycomb shades provide a style and energy-efficiency for homeowners. Their unique appearance is made up of a design with built-in “pockets” that trap heat or cool air, depending on the season.
By pairing these with a smart thermostat, both will work together to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the house, with the shades lowering and raising when needed. In the summer, installed photo-sensors can even detect where the sun is and how directly it is affecting the interiors.
These blinds work well in any room and can give a unique yet timeless look to your client’s space.
