Simple and Stylish Roller Shades
Windows are an important feature in any room, so choosing the right window treatments is crucial for a cohesive and aesthetically-pleasing room design. For a clean and classic look, choose roller shades. These shades are expertly tailored to the inside of your windows, effectively blocking the light and giving your windows a sophisticated finish.
What Are Roller Shades?
As the name suggests, the key feature of roller-style shades is the convenient rolling mechanism. The shade itself is cordless and made of one continuous piece of fabric that mounts to the inside window frame. Once installed, a gentle tug will lift the shade to let in light. The excess fabric then rolls and wraps neatly around a cylindrical bar at the top of the shade.
These shades can be rolled up slightly to let in a little light and fresh air or rolled to the top to flood your space with beautiful natural light. Some shades are completely opaque when closed while sheer shades let a small amount of light filter in at all times.
Styling Your Shades
While roller-style shades are usually used on small windows, you can also install two or three shades next to each other to cover larger windows. Because they are so simple and stylish, these shades will enhance modern or traditional spaces. Shades in white or light gray are neutral and airy and look great next to a bold canvas art piece or decorative mirror. Window shades in darker gray or other dark tones add depth and drama to the room. Complete the look with a dark area rug and add decorative lamps or wall sconces to make the room feel cozy.
Easy to install and easy to use, roller shades are a lovely addition to bedrooms or living spaces around the home. Choose from a variety of gorgeous modern colors and dress up your windows with a crisp, perfectly tailored roller shade.
