This week we're shining the spotlight on one of our favorite window treatments – Roller Shades. Roller shades offer a modern, sleek look compared to most other window treatments. They come in more than 240 decorative fabric options and in fun patterns and colors sure to fit your style.
When it comes to window treatments, home owners care about two things: how they look and how much they cost. Roller shades are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they are surprisingly affordable too.
Roller shades can pair with other window treatments as well, a design tip you may not have thought of before. Pair roller shades with drapes for extra privacy and a dark room for a movie night with the family.
Blocks UV Rays
Not only are roller shades attractive, they are functional. Solar roller shades block UV rays. While you are likely familiar with UV rays' effects on skin, did you know they can damage furniture and cause color fading? Smooth fabrics like silk are especially prone to damage from UV rays. Other fabrics become brittle and prone to breaking. While wood furniture should have a sealant on it, not all sealants are equal. Depending on the type of wood, a poor sealant will cause wood to become darker as a result of UV rays.
Roller shades do a great job of blocking just the right amount of light and still allowing plenty of natural light. They also help to absorb heat to keep your home at a steady temperature. If you have a beautiful view outside of your home, you will still be able to see a bit of the outdoors even when your shades are in use.
Studies have shown that managing darkness in the bedroom leads to better sleep. Roller shades and dark fabrics do a great job of creating a dark sleeping space. Be sure to discuss your light preferences with your Budget Blinds consultant at your free in-home consultation.
