Types of Shades
Roller shades, also called “roll up shades or roller blinds”, are an easy and economical way to add color, style and texture to any decor.
A popular choice, roller shades are constructed with modern fabrics and offer simple functionality for ease of use. Roll-up shades are available in light filtering, room darkening and blackout fabrics depending on what level of light control you need. Light filtering is better for rooms where you will not need a high level of privacy and would prefer to have some sunlight even with the shade closed.
The Standard Continuous Cord Loop lift allows it to stay the same length eliminating the extra cord hanging down when the shade is raised.
Roman shades “blinds” are a beautiful blend of today’s popular decorating styles, colors, and textures.
Roman shades are tailored to give you the look of costly custom at a price that will pleasantly surprise you! Roman, Roller window coverings, are available in light-filtering, which is an excellent way to maintain privacy while still allowing light to come in or room-darkening which makes the room almost completely dark. Use alone or with complimentary fabric window treatments.
Pleated shades are perfect for those looking for classic 1″ pleat size in a single-layer shade with more definition and texture than a roller shade but without the slats of horizontal blinds. The fabric of pleated shades gives you flexibility in light and privacy control while the accordion folds occupy very little space at the top of the window when raised. Pleated blinds are similar to honeycomb cellular shades.
While pleated shades do not have the same energy-efficient properties as cellular blinds, they do have a similar visual appeal & will fit in the same types of windows. Our selection of pleated shades offer a budget-friendly alternative to cellular blinds providing similar light and privacy control at a lower price. Pleated shade fabrics are made of weaved, light filtering woven polyester with an optional privacy liner for additional light blockage, insulation, & privacy.

Some fabrics will fit windows up to 96″ wide. 2″, 3″ and 4″ vane sizes available in light filtering fabric which is an excellent way to maintain privacy while still allowing light to come in or room darkening which makes the room almost completely dark.
The Standard Continuous Cord Loop lift allows it to stay the same length eliminating the extra cord hanging down when the shade is raised

Top Down / Bottom Up
This handy option allows you to let the window shade drop from the top, as well as rising from the bottom. This is a great way to maintain privacy while still allowing light to come into your room.
Continuous Cord Loop
(Only available for roman & bamboo shades)
The lift cord stays the same length eliminating the extra cord hanging down when the shade is raised. This is a good option on large windows or when the cordless option is not available.
For maximum light blockage and energy efficiency, we recommend Blackout collection.
(Not available for bamboo shades)
Cordless Shades are easy to use, child/pet safe, and have a sleeker look than a corded shade.
Your shades can be motorized for extra child safety or for hard to reach windows and skylights.
