Roller shades, sometimes referred to as roller blinds, are available in a wide variety of fabrics and colors. Roller shades are sleek, simple, and also very easy to adjust. Roller shades roll up neatly at the top of the window, allowing for greater visibility when raised. Roller blinds are also some of the easiest window treatments to clean and maintain.
Roller shades offer many customization options, from texture to color. Fabrics range from solid colors to bold patterns, and a variety of textures like woven fabric and tweed. Colors are available from rich, premium material choices to more subtle neutral tones. Additionally, roller blinds can be made with varying levels of light filtering options to diffuse light throughout a room or block it entirely with blackout capability.

Upgrades and Options
Roller shades have some options and upgrades available to enhance their look or function.
- Motorized Lift: The ultimate in convenience. With a motorized lift upgrade, your roller shades can be raised or lowered at the push of a button. Ideal for hard-to-reach windows.
- Opacity: Opacity options allow you to choose how much light the roller shades let into a room. Choose from light filtering materials with various percentages of light blocking or go full blackout, ideal in bedrooms, nurseries, media rooms, and home offices.
- Cordless Lift: This popular option provides a hidden control system, eliminating the lift cord on your roller shades and enables them to be easily raised or lowered with the touch of a finger.
- Continuous Cord Loop Controls: With this option, the cords on your roller shades will be secured to wall or window frame, eliminating a hanging or dangling cord. A great choice for larger/heavier shades, making them easier to operate.
- Valances and Cornices: A stylish topper to accent your shades. Some Roller blinds feature fabric-wrapped wooden headrails at the top of the shade, or decorative trim at the bottom.
- Finishing Touches: Roller shades can be further customized with additional accents, such as trim, beads, and bottom borders.
Here are a few things to consider before purchasing roller shades.
- Inside mount roller shades must meet a minimum depth requirement to accommodate the mechanism. As a result, inside mount option may experience some light gaps on the sides between the shade and the window frame. For a full light blocking installation, consider going with an outside mount.
- Roller blinds with a light filtering fabric might still show shadows or silhouettes from the outside, especially at night when light sources in the home are present. For increased privacy, consider going with a blackout fabric.
- Streetside color varies by fabric.
