The Designer Side of Modern Roller Shades

The beauty of roller shades is their elegant simplicity. The straightforward design features a front fabric panel with unbroken space; that rolls into a hidden valance and creates an excellent canvass for design. The sleek profile of roller shades means they don’t intrude on interior space.Instead they blend into the architecture of the room, making them ideal for small spaces like bathrooms or larger spaces like great rooms.Since they are easy to operate, they work as well over broad, extra-wide windows as they do on small or narrow windows. And thanks to advancements in modern textile technology, it is easier than ever to fabricate custom roller shades with designer flair for your home.

Layered Window Fashions

Another way to make ordinary roller shades into designer window fashions is by creating layered window treatments, whose aesthetic and functionality can be heightened with the combination of multiple design elements. Pair roller shades with custom drapery or side panels for window treatments with enhanced light control, insulation, and a dynamic use of textiles and fabrics. Custom valances and cornices also make a striking addition to window fashions adding a complementary topper to the treatment that can both hide hardware and give the final treatment a polished look.
