Six Reasons Roller Shades Are Fantastic

Updated: Nov 13, 2022

Roller shades have been around since the 18th century, and I’m sure many can still remember the roller shades; so many of us grew up with them as kids. Fear not; I’m happy to report that roller shades have come a long way since this time. With beautiful trend-on fabrics and innovative control systems, today’s roller shades aren’t the ones we grew up with. Let’s look at six reasons why roller shades are so fantastic.

1. Great Fabric Choices

When it comes to roller shades, the fabric is everything. No matter the design style or privacy needs, there's a fabric to suit your needs from elegant and classic neutrals, trending global textures, light-filtering or blackout room darkening, and cost-effective or energy-efficient high-performance screen shade fabrics.

2. Clean Lines and Contemporary

The inherent design of roller shades extends clean, unbroken lines and a modern look and feel to a room. Roller shades feature a single piece of fabric that can be lifted and lowered at various heights for light control and privacy. The shade rolls into the headrail for an unobstructed view with clean lines even when fully raised.

3. Wide Selection of Control Options

Roller shades offer a wide range of control options for raising and lowering the window treatment. From a standard beaded cord loop to cordless or state-of-the-art automation, which provides various benefits, including convenience, safety for children, and beauty with no visible control mechanism.

4. Excellent for Large Windows

Large windows in a home are often the focal point of a room showing a fantastic view. With that incredible view comes the challenge of controlling the natural light that flows into the room. Large windows can be challenging to cover with one blind or shade with some blind or shade categories. Fortunately, roller shades solve this problem with fabric available in wide widths and heights needed to tackle the project without compromising on style.

5. Whole Room or Home Coordination

Roller shades offer numerous on-trend fabrics to match any decor and are available in the same fabrics as panel track systems for a whole room or home coordination. The unique design of the panel track allows this window treatment to span extra-large windows, room dividers, and sliding patio doors.

6. Wide Selection of Design Options

Roller shades offer various customizable design options, such as bottom rails, valances, and cornices, to enhance the overall décor style. These same design options are also provided on the panel track systems for whole room or home coordination.

Roller shades have withstood the test of time and continue to grow in popularity with all the new innovative advancements in larger sizes, beautiful fabrics, design, and advanced control options; I think roller shades will be around for a very long time.
