5 Reasons to Choose Roller Shades
Today’s roller shades bear no resemblance to the shades of the past that flapped up and spun on their rollers. These shades are the perfect blend of style and function, able to complement any decor.
Roller shades continue to gain popularity due to their finished, tailored look and their ability to completely roll up, allowing your view to take center stage. They are a terrific option for anyone who lives on Lake Norman or one of our area’s golf courses, or simply has a beautiful view.
You don’t have to choose between beautiful form and optimal function. Roller shades give you both!
In this article, we’re highlighting five things our customers love about roller shades.
1 – Roller shades disappear.
Our customers’ number one reason for choosing roller shades is this ability to disappear. The Lake Norman area offers so much natural beauty for us to enjoy. Do you live on the lake in Cornelius, Denver, or Mooresville? Or on a golf course in Huntersville or Davidson? If your home overlooks a lake, pond, golf course, or grove of trees, choosing roller shades allows you to enjoy all your view has to offer.
Top your shades with a sleek cassette valance with matching fabric, metal fascia, open roll, or reverse roll. It’s all about personal preference. Metal fascia is most often used in commercial settings, but is also a good choice for someone who likes a more industrial look.
2 – Solar shades offer view-through protection.
Solar shades protect the inside of a home or building. Instead of allowing it to penetrate through the window, solar shades reflect the sun’s rays and reduce heat from outside. Solar shades can save you money and energy.
Solar shades are a variation on roller shades. They are made of open weave fabric and can actually maintain your view even when they are completely lowered. Solar shades are available in various levels of openness. More densely woven shades offer increased privacy and block more heat and damaging UV rays. More openly woven shades allow for better views but provide less privacy.
Solar shades are commonly used in commercial settings as well as in homes where privacy is not a concern. Solar Shades were a great addition to this office in Cornelius.
Seeking privacy and UV protection? The Dual Shade features two fabrics working together to allow filtered light and view-through when you want it, and complete privacy when you need it.
3 – Roller shades offer sleek and safe control options.
Cordless lift makes roller shades a safe choice for children and pets. Their sleek, cordless design also appeals to homeowners looking for a low-profile appearance and clean lines.
Made in the Shade Lake Norman clients often choose our motorized lifting system for their shades for added convenience. Raise or lower your shades with the simple touch of a button. For even greater convenience, we can automate your shades to raise and lower at certain times of the day!
4 – Roller shades offer a room darkening solution.
Customers who seek room-darkening or near total blackout solutions often turn to roller shades. Roller shades are available in a wide range of colors, fabrics, and opacities, allowing you to control or severely limit the amount of light coming into a room. \
Whether you need help getting a better night’s sleep, want to darken a baby or toddler’s bedroom during naptime, or wish to create a magical media room viewing experience, roller shades are an excellent choice.
Choose roller shades made out of blackout fabric and add side tracks to come close to blacking out 100% of the light from outside!
5 – Roller shades allow you to express your style.
Roller shades are available in a wide variety of fabrics, colors, textures, and patterns. Whether you want to keep things neutral and subtle or are looking to make a statement with a bold color or interesting pattern, you can find a style of roller shades to fit your vision.
These Made in the Shade Lake Norman preferred vendors have wonderful selections of high quality, truly beautiful roller shades.
