Roller Shades- A Modern Option!

I’m pretty sure I am going to date myself here, but do remember the Roller Shades that you dared to touch when you were a child?

I can’t tell you how many times I pulled, tugged or cranked on the bottom of a roller shade only to have it either stick in place at the bottom (usually unevenly), or to violently snap back up in a split-second, destroying things and scaring anyone within its vicinity half to death! This usually concluded by falling right out of the window and onto the floor or somewhere else. These shades were actually scary.


Well, I am here to tell you that thankfully, you no longer need to fear that in Roller Shades.

These are not your Grandmothers Roller Shades!


Today’s Roller Shades come in endless fabrics and are great choice for many homes and businesses! They come in designed fabrics, solar fabrics and natural fabrics. They can be used on windows and sliding glass or French doors.

There are many reasons to consider Roller Shades. Here are Five good ones.


  1. Roller Shades are a modern and sleek option. They give a clean, uncluttered look to your window and can be tucked away better than almost any other window treatments, when you want a clear open view outside.


  1. There are so many choices! Roller Shades come in any color or fabric that you can imagine! They can filter light or darken a room. They come in patterned fabrics, natural fabrics and fabrics with solar UV blocking capabilities. Solar Shades are a Florida Fav as they can actually help to reduce your energy bill! Solar shades come in a variety of colors and transparencies. They are an excellent choice if you want to keep your view, as you can choose ones that maintain the ability to see right through to the outside! This is a wonderful option for those homes and businesses with a great view!


  1. Roller Shades are easy to use. There are no cords or clutter. We sell cordless, easy to operate rollers that also have a motorized option to make it even easier. These can be operated from bed, your chair or your phone remotely.
  2. Roller Shades are easy to maintain. They are easy to clean, in that the design of a shade tucks easily away when not in use and the shade will not gather dust as much dust as other treatments, especially when not down. Your Roller Shades should last a very long time.


  1. Roller Shades are often cost efficient in comparison to other window treatments. Of course, there are some very high-end exceptions, but generally speaking, you can save money in comparison to other window treatments.



Maybe I should have said,  “Six Good Reasons to Consider Roller Shades”….I will be expanding on the Outdoor Roller Shade application in the next blog, but for now, here is a teaser…..


Couldn’t you just curl up on that swing with a good book, coffee or a glass or wine?
