Roller Shades-Gaining Popularity in Spring 2009
Roller Shades are one of the most recognizable types of window treatment around. Even if you didn�t grow up with them in your own home, you were sure to see roller shades at Grand Mom�s house or your favorite Uncle and Aunt�s place. And if you are a coffee lover, the Starbucks down the street is sure to have them.
There are Roller shades made with vinyl, fabric or laminate and their thickness varies depending on the purpose they are used for. Insulating roller shades are thicker while those used strictly for privacy can be thinner. Roller Shades come in a wide variety of styles, colors and textures and coordinates easily in any room.
Roller shades have become quite popular once again (Grand Mom would be pleased) as they offer an economical, simple yet aesthetically pleasing means to cover windows and doors.
Among the added benefit is that Roller Shades offer also economical window privacy. Roller shades can be ordered with an extra layer of blackout fabric, which will block out all light from a room, or simply use light filtering shades to keep excess light out.
Last, but not least, roller shades are easy to install. In most cases, homeowners themselves install the roller shades, eliminating the added cost of professional installation. Thus, it can be both elegant and affordable to get a discount roller shade and accentuate it with a nice drapery panel.
We recently added an economy roller shade line to our premium line of roller shades, and I would be happy to discuss what roller shade best fits your needs!
