Rediscovering Roller Shades

Designer Roller Screen Shades in the Living Room

Roller shades have long been popular, even from their early days of being vinyl room-darkeners. They have evolved over the years to become an option that won’t go out of style because they can match any décor. At Window Products in Connecticut, our trained consultants will be happy to help you decide if roller shades are right for your home.

This year, however, Hunter Douglas has recognized the need to modernize and streamline this classic shade by changing the clutch to a new, ultra-slim system called custom clutch. This new custom clutch is attached to the bracket and allows the fabric of the shade to be cut larger for better coverage.
