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.

New Design Improves Light Gap

The one drawback to roller shades is the light gap that comes from the sides of the shade when installed inside the window frame. One side of the roller shade has a clutch to raise and lower the shade. As a result, the fabric on the control side leaves a light gap for the clutch to operate. 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. Yes, there is still a small light gap on each side of the shade; however, it is minimal. Without question, today’s updated, spring-loaded roller shade by Hunter Douglas is setting a new standard for this time-tested classic. [Read more…]

If your memory of roller shades is only of the heavy vinyl room-darkening shade, you might be interested to learn that roller shades have certainly evolved. At Window Products serving Connecticut, we’re happy to tell you that roller shades are a great choice for many windows in many homes.

Helping Control Energy Costs

If your window is untreated, it can lose up to 50% of your home’s heating and cooling energy. You may be thinking that if you cover your windows, you’ll lose your view, but covering them at least at night and during very sunny days in the summer can help make your windows more energy-efficient. Shades and blinds have been designed to reduce the amount of solar heat that passes through the window. If you don’t have any treatments, you might want to consider a Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shade. They come in many different colors and textures that will not only enhance your window but also insulate it, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. [Read more…]
