The name really says it all. Roller shades move up and down in the traditional style, and can pause at any point, creating a sun blocking screen that allows you to control natural lighting conditions easily and simply. Being not the most elaborate type of window covering makes roller shades a very favorable and popular shading option that’s found in a wide range of properties.
A Lot Of Design Options
Seeing as roller shades consist of a single screen of fabric, you can think of them as a canvas that can accommodate all sorts of colors, textures, and designs. There’s also a lot of variety when it comes to different hues and opacity levels. You can opt for sheer light filtering fabric or something with more room darkening or blackout qualities. It’s up to you.
Should I Motorize Them?
The simplicity of their rolling mechanism makes roller shades a virtually maintenance free choice. When you couple that with a high tech motor and controls, you get an easily operated shading solution that you can open and close with zero effort. Have them custom made to fit the window and controlled wirelessly with a remote handset or your smartphone, and see the level of convenience and elegance these “simple shades” bring to your home. Not enough? Well, there’s more. Motorization also allows you to integrate your window coverings into your smart home technology. That means voice commands, and – with the use of sensors – also self-adjusting roller shades, if that’s what you opt for.
A Range of Materials
While fabric is the common choice for custom made roller shades, it’s certainly not the only one. You can opt for natural grass, a.k.a bamboo (yep it’s technically grass and not wood). You can also decide to have your roller shades made from something a bit sturdier, like vinyl, or other materials with a more tactile texture.
