With all the window treatment options available today, it can be overwhelming trying to choose what is best for your home. Roller shades are always a practical and versatile choice. At Elements Interiors and Window Fashions, we have over 15 years of experience helping customers design their perfect window coverings. We carry premium brands like Norman, Graber, and Hunter Douglas to ensure every product you purchase is top quality.
Clean, Simple Lines
The straightforward design of these window coverings means they will never distract guests from your room’s decor but rather will complement the surroundings. Simple lines always mean versatility. Roller blinds can be used in all decor styles, from classic to modern, and every variety in between.
Blend In or Stand Out
When roller shades are open, they seemingly disappear and highlight the architecture of your windows. This is something that curtains, or shutters cannot do. Choosing a neutral color and darker opacity will further help your roller blinds blend in. Lower your shade, and they can become part of the architecture rather than an added decorative layer.
On the contrary, roller shades can be incredibly beautiful and decorative. You can have blinds with opaque patterns, abstract designs, or delicate floral prints. Also, remember when choosing a color of shades that the way light will look coming through is just as important as how the blinds look in the room. Depending on how bold you are willing to go, you can have shades that really pop. If you want your shades to be more subtle but still noticeable, shades of pink and brown go great together.
Another advantage to having roller blinds is the ability to have them as a standalone window covering or paired with custom drapery for both drama and efficiency. Think of roller shades as the blank slate of the window treatment world.
Common issue consumers have with roller blinds is the inability to conceal the rolling mechanism. However, this can be easily solved with a decorative valance. If a valance is not your style, opt for a reverse roll. Pulling down over the front means the edge of the shade will be far less noticeable when your shade is raised.
Roller blinds are also incredibly easy to maintain. They don’t require any regular upkeep, and cleaning is as simple as removing the shade from its brackets, unrolling it onto your floor, and wiping it with a soft cloth and a mild cleaning solution. No special oils, treatments, or steam cleaners are necessary.
Durability is another factor that makes this window treatment a great choice. If you purchase roller blinds from a premium brand, they will hold up very well against daily wear and tear. The brands we carry are not only of exceptional quality, but the companies also have high standards of integrity.
Roller blinds are much more cost-effective than other window treatments and have the added benefit of increasing your home’s energy efficiency. Since roller blinds are a single piece of material, there are no gaps for light or heat to seep through.
Graber is committed to sustainable practices at all points of manufacturing, and their LightWeaves® Roller Shades are GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified. This means the materials used have low chemical and particle emissions which results in cleaner indoor air.
Soluna™ Roller Shades from Norman® are flame resistant and available with PrecisionLift™ technology for cordless, one-touch operation. Cordless window treatments create a much safer environment in homes with young children and pets.
Sometimes you want the option to have natural light and room-darkening capacity without having two separate window coverings. Duolite® from Hunter Douglas is an innovative style of roller shade that has a light-filtering sheer and a room-darkening opaque liner on a single shade. They have more than 400 fabrics to choose from, so you are guaranteed to find one that you love.
