Roller Shades

Roller shades can be used as a window treatment for your windows. They are made from a fabric that is pulled over the top of each window. They cover the entire surface of the window and can create privacy, block sunlight, and insulate sound, etc. Roller shades also allow you to tell what time it is by just glancing out your window. You can easily see if it’s daytime or nighttime by looking at the roller shade.

There are two basic types of roller shades, known as single and double-fold. There is also a special type of shade called an ‘energy efficient shade. Single-fold shades hang straight, while double-fold shades create pleats that fold into each other when lowered. An energy-efficient shade uses less energy because of its tightly woven fabric.

Roller shades can be made of a number of different materials. The most common material remains vinyl, but more expensive varieties include cloth and faux-wooden blinds.

The installation process of roller shades is easy. All you have to do is put the shade in place, pull it down over the window frame, pull the cord on the side and the shade will automatically roll up into a small tube. These are becoming increasingly popular because they don’t require you to have any difficult screws, nails or brackets. They simply go up by being held in place over the window frame.

Roller shades are easy to clean with simple household cleaners when needed.

Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades are an economical way to cover your windows. They are composed of a light frame that is hung on the window frame. The outside edges have blackout fabric that attaches to the frame with hooks, while the inside of the shade has a honeycomb pattern that allows for light to shine through.
Most honeycomb shades are solid, but some do have room for graphics or prints. They come in a wide variety of colors and can be used to add privacy or just allow light into your home.

The installation process is simple when it comes to these types of window coverings. You begin by attaching the top brackets over the top of the window frame. The frame gets hung on the brackets and the bottom of the shade is attached to the bottom brackets with hooks. It’s a quick process that can be done in no time.

Honeycomb shades are made from two different kinds of materials, one being polyester material, while others are made with cotton or muslin material. There is a choice between single and double-cell shades. Single cells are lighter than the double cells, but they also don’t insulate as well. Double cells can insulate better and block more light.

Cell sizes vary from brand to brand, but most offer a standard size of six inches by six inches. The honeycomb design creates a lively and unique look, but keeps a low profile at the same time.

Honeycomb shades are easy to clean and maintain. They can be vacuumed or washed with warm soapy water to keep them looking their best all year long. Honeycomb shades also have a variety of options when it comes to how they open and close.
