Roller shades have long been the standard for commercial applications. Now this staple has brought sleek style to the residential market.
Roller shades’ slim profile and minimal modern design make them the perfect window treatment for today’s modern home design. Available in light filtering, room darkening, and mesh fabrics, also know as, solar shades. The sleek style of roller shades is also functional.
Once considered a basic, utilitarian window covering, roller shades are now available in 100s of colors, patterns, and textures.
They come in a wide selection of opacities: Sheer, transparent, semi- transparent, light filtering, semi opaque, room darkening, and black-out. The fabric options are so vast that informed consumers are choosing roller shades over draperies. Today’s homeowner wants clean lines and modern design elements and roller shades’ low profile delivers both.
Opting for a decorative top treatment is a popular choice.
Options include fascia, fabric wrapped cassette, or fabric valance. Fascia is often used in uber modern design spaces. Cassettes offer a more transitional style, while a fabric valance brings a softer look and is always a great choice. The true minimalist will most often opt for no headrail or valance.
Gone are the shades that you touch and they spring up out of control.
Today’s roller shades offer a continuous chain system for ease of operation. Smart touch options allow for cordless lift with a controlled uplift that raises and lowers at a controlled pace. Motorization continues to grow in popularity with ability to control with your smart phone.
Roller shades are also available as dual shades.
This clever option allows for 2 shades in one window. Want a sheer shade during the day to let brilliant light in but need a semi opaque shade for night time privacy? Dual roller shades are the perfect solution. This modern concept has grown in poularity in the last several years.
