Roller shades: They’re some of the most versatile and popular window treatments on the market. If you decide to buy roller shades for your windows, you’ll love them, just like so many homeowners before you.
Take a look at these seven great reasons to choose roller shades for any room in your house:
1. Simple Elegance Is In
Modern design is characterized by clean lines. It’s the style that’s “in,” and it’s exactly what roller shades offer. They’re sleek, minimal and understated. They will draw attention to the window’s architecture, or the view.
They look complete all on their own, but you can also easily pair them with curtains or a valance.
2. Lifting or Lowering — It’s Easy
With a simple pull, you can easily lift or lower roller shades to the exact position you’d like. They’re easy to adjust — you don’t have to deal with a tangled cord or an uncooperative wand.
3. Pick Your Color, Pattern or Texture
Roller shades come in a wide range of colors. You can match them to another key color in your room’s design, or pick a bright, stand-out color for a unique twist. You can also choose from a multitude of patterns as well as textures.
4. Block Direct Sun, But Let in Light
Choose a cream-colored shade that lets in light — it will cut the sun’s glare, but you’ll still enjoy the warmth of the sunshine in the form of an ethereal glow. This product is a good solution when you want a “sunroom” but don’t want to sit in direct sunlight.
5. Blackout Material Available
Maybe sunshine isn’t your thing. You’re looking for a window treatment that will completely block out the light. Whether you work third shift or you just can’t sleep with the bright streetlights on, roller shades come in blackout materials that can solve the problem.
6. They’re Easy to Clean
With blinds, dusting can be a hassle, wiping down every slat. With roller shades, cleaning isn’t time-consuming. They don’t attract much dust in the first place, but if they do, you can just wipe them down with a cloth or run a lint roller over them.
7. You Can Motorize Them
You can install them on windows that are far away and out of reach and still maintain control over light infiltration. They are easy to motorize; just the touch of a button raises or lowers the shades from the top or bottom — you decide.
