  • Privacy and light control: Cords and route holes are located on the back of the shade for maximum privacy.

Roller Shades

Believe it or not, roller shades are making a comeback! Today's Roller Shades come in many beautifully designed prints as well as a wide variety of exquisite textures and colors. You can customize your roller shades to your own unique style with many different hem styles and valances. Modern technology has made today's roller shades more dependable than ever. The standard tension rolling system of the past has been replaced by a continuous looped cord which is substantially more durable. New light-blocking materials make roller shades even more effective for light control.

The Sheerweaves cut glare, yet allow you to see through them, in various degrees of "openness". They're perfect whenever you want to minimize the sun but maximize your view.

Many options are available for today's roller shades:
  • Standard or reverse roll
  • Continuous cordloop control
  • Bottom bars (available with cordloop only)
  • Cassette headrail system
  • Decorative hems
Sheer Horizontal Shadings work like a wood blind and a cellular shade in one. It filters the light and provides complete privacy much like a cellular blind. These soft window shadings have fabric vanes that can be tilted open like a wood blind to open the view to the outside through the sheer fabric.

Sheer Vertical Shadings provide a formal look of a sheer drapery with the function and privacy of a vertical blind. Includes fabric vanes that can be tilted open like a vertical blind to open the view to the outside through the sheer fabric. Recommended for taller windows or sliding glass doors.

Pleated Shades offer more design flexibility, with more fabric variety, color and texture. Shades stack in folded pleats, providing a more open view at the window.
