Window Shades - Variety and Features

Let's start with the basics? What is a window shade? A shade is commonly made out of a singular piece of fabric or material that when installed helps filter or blocks light through the window. Shades come in a variety of styles and those styles are often times used for different applications. Below you will find some of our most popular window shade varieties and an example of how you might want to use them.

  • Roller Shades - Our roller shades are one of our best sellers due to the versatility of uses. We offer roller shades in both light filtering and room darkening fabrics. Roller shades are great for bedroom windows.
  • Cellular Shades - Commonly referred to as honeycomb shades, these window coverings offer a benefit many home owners are unaware of. Cellular shades are an insulative style window treatment. The cellular channels that run through your shades trap air between the channels and help your home stay cool in the summer and warm in winter. Save energy today with cellular shades! 
  • Soft Roman Shades - Soft Roman Shades bring in the timeless elegance of curtains and drapery in the style of a window shade. These window treatments are made out of beautiful fabrics in a number of patterns and colors. Looking to have a room make a statement? Find the perfect match with Soft Roman Shades
