Summer or winter, we cannot do without the use of blinds or shades. They help avoid excess sunlight filtering into our rooms and aid in controlling the temperature. Blinds prevent people from looking into rooms and give us the privacy we need in home and office spaces. Roller blinds or roll-down shades are one of the most commonly used products for this purpose.
Roller shades or roll-down blinds roll up neatly into a cylinder at the top of your window. There are no rope cords like those used with blinds. You have to pull on the shade itself or on a looped cord to get it to roll up and down. This makes roller shades much easier to use.
Roll-down shades are available in various colors, fabrics, and patterns. No matter what color, style, or pattern you want, you can get it from our catalog or even have it made to order. The colors and styles in vogue are different every year, so you can change whenever you want. You will want to make sure that they complement the decor of your room.
You can choose how much light to allow or filter into a room. For example, blackout shades stop any light from entering your room altogether. They are primarily used in bedrooms. They can also be used in nurseries or rooms for entertainment, like when you are watching a movie. You can even use shades that control the level of light allowed into a room.
Using Motorized Roller Shades
Motorized roller shades are the more modern version of roller shades. These make it possible to raise or lower the shades just at the touch of a button. You just have to press a button on the remote, and it is done.
This is all the more convenient if you have a number of windows that use shades. Installing the motorized version of shades can save time and require less effort to raise and lower the shades.
Motorized roller shades can be used in places that are out of reach. You don’t have to use a stool or ladder for this purpose. Motorized roller shades can also be conveniently used by older people or people with disabilities.
One of the most popular reasons for choosing shades over curtains is that shades are easier to clean and maintain. You just have to use detergent or just plain old soap and water. Quite often, the material of which shades are made makes them easier to clean and maintain.
