Window Coverings – Shades


The four main types of shades today are honeycomb shades, Roman shades, woven wood shades, and the traditional window shades. There are unlimited choices of fabrics, textures, and opacity. All offer varying degrees of light control and privacy. With the vast array of fabrics and materials to choose from, there is a window shade to suit any room in the home.

The privacy and light control needs for the room will dictate which of the many fabrics you can choose from.  The more sheer fabric can filter light and the opaque can darken the room. Fabric texture options with window shades can accommodate formal looks to casual looks and anything in between, making these products popular for any room and its decor.

These products can be installed with an inside or outside mount depending on the window molding and sill construction.
The honeycomb construction of these soft, yet durable shades—available in single, double and triple honeycombs—make them highly energy efficient. Choose from a wide variety of sheer, semi-sheer, semi-opaque and opaque fabrics, as well as hundreds of colors. Honeycomb shades get the name “honeycomb” due to their construction, which is designed like a honeycomb in a beehive.  They are made of soft textured, woven and non-woven fabrics with crisp, even pleats. Many shades are available in single, double, and triple honeycomb designs, in a variety of pleat sizes which provide varying degrees of light control and privacy. If energy efficiency is a concern, honeycomb shades should be considered.  The honeycomb cell construction traps the air inside for maximum energy savings. They can fit almost any window, including specialty shapes and stack neatly with minimal space at the top of the window when raised.

Most Roman shades are simple, flat fabric shades that draw up in neat, even folds, giving them a tailored look. Some Roman shades maintain their contoured folds while in the down position. They are available in various types of fabrics ranging from smooth semi-sheer polyesters to highly textured semi-opaque polyester/rayon blends and also in room darkening fabrics. Sleek and sophisticated, Modern Roman Shades consistently present a clean, neat appearance.

A vast improvement to the traditional roller shade, window shades come in hundreds of fabrics, colors and styles. You can order select fabrics separately for designing room accessories. The fabric on these shades can be made from durable polyester to high tech dyed screened fabrics with an array of opacity options.
