Window Shades

Choosing Window Shades to Match Your Home’s Style

Are you looking for window shades for your home? Two of the most popular styles for today’s home are roman shades and cellular shades. But what is the difference between these two types of shades for windows? And what features should you look for when purchasing window shades? Here’s a quick guide to answer those questions for you.

What Are Roman Shades?

Roman shades offer a clean and stylish appearance in any home. Their distinctive feature is how they fold up into themselves using cords on the back of the shade. The type of fold can change the entire look of the shade, providing clean lines perfect for contemporary or modern decor or curving for a luxurious look. Roman shades are known for blocking light and can come in a variety of colors and patterns to match any decor. Pair your Roman shades with complementary drapes, or let them take the role of the sole window covering in any room. You may choose from silk, velvet, cotton, or even French linen shades, to name just a few varieties.

What Are Cellular Shades?

Cellular shades, depending on their fabric and any backing on the shades, can also block light. But they are well known for their thermal properties, preventing the transfer of heat or cold thanks to their unique honeycomb design. Cellular shades for windows offer a uniquely modern look in homes, but the right curtains or drapes can also complement cellular shades in a home with other, more traditional, or even transitional decor.

What Should You Look for in Shades for Windows?

When you’re shopping for window shades, decide on the features most important to you. Cellular shades often come in cordless varieties, which are recommended for homes with children or pets who can get entangled in the cords. Cellular shades may open from the top down to let in light while maintaining privacy. On the other hand, Roman shades offer a distinctive look. Whatever window shades you choose, you will want to make sure they are easy to install and offer a custom fit for your home.
