Custom Interior Roller Shades
Simple Solutions to Elegant Shading
Roller Shades can provide an enormous range of solution to sun and shading problems.
In addition, the can be strikingly beautiful, providing elegant solutions to design problems that cannot be dealt with in any other Way. Our "Custom Interior Roller Shades Program"includes over two hundred carefully selected Roller Shade Fabrics, skillfully arranged in chromatic groups, which can be easily coordinated with our draper fabric collection. Roller shades are usually used in layered window treatments, such as a roller shade behind a drapery panel or under a drapery valance. The chromatic arrangement we have provided makes it simple to move from our roller shade fabrics to our coordinated drapery fabrics with ease and confidence.
Fabric Types for our Roller Shades
Our Custom Roller Shade Program includes a variety of fabrics with differing functional and decorative values. The label on each of the fabric sample in our Fabric Studio Collection includes an icon that tells you what kind of fabric it is. The difference in our custom shade fabrics are explained below so that you will be able to know what to expect from any given fabric.
sheer and casement shade fabrics
Sheer and Casement Fabrics are chosen more for their beauty and decorative value than anything else. Some such fabrics may provide a small amount of sun protection, but don't expect too much from them. Sheer fabrics do not provide privacy, though to some extent they may provide a little during the day depending on how sheer they are and the balance of light between the inside and the outside of the room.
translucent shade fabrics
Translucent Fabrics allow light to enter through the fabric while at the same time providing privacy. Sometimes the location of an internal light source can affect the degree of privacy you can expect from a translucent fabric. Specifically, if there is a light new the opening, so that it is between you and the shade, then you can expect complete privacy. If, however, there is a light behind you, so that you are between the light and the shade, then you are "back lit" and the degree of privacy the shade can provide is less. This is not usually a problem with most translucent fabrics, but if a fabric is very light, we would like to make you aware of this characteristic. Translucent fabrics also provide protection from the sun for carpet, draperies, and furniture, which can fade and rot from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. They also provide some protection from heat and glare.
solar shade fabrics
Solar Fabrics are a unique class of fabrics with special functional characteristics. By filtering out the sun's ultraviolet radiation, solar fabrics protect carpet and fabrics in draperies and furniture from rotting and fading caused by exposure to direct sunlight. They provide substantial protection from heat, glare on computers, and other situations where glare is a problem. Because of the way these fabrics are woven, it is possible to see through them during the day, while at the same time enjoying their functional benefits. Generally, it is not possible to see into a room through a solar fabric during the day even though it is possible to see out. However, they cannot be relied upon for nighttime privacy, because this effect reverses itself at night. The solar fabrics in our custom roller shade collection have been selected primarily for their beauty and decorative value. For further information on solar fabrics do not hesitate to contact us as we are having a wide range of solar shade for residential use or the commercial environment like Offices.
room darkening shade fabrics
Room Darkening Fabrics are generally used to provide enough light control to enable sleep. Though they do not completely black out a room, they will make a room dark enough for the average person, and they usually are quite useful in children's bedrooms. Room darkening shade fabrics provide complete privacy.
blackout shade fabrics
Blackout Shade Fabrics completely eliminate light transfer. However, they cannot actually black out a room unless they are deployed in a hardware system of light stopping channels that stop light leakage around the fabric. For information about such systems, contact us. Blackout shade fabrics provide complete privacy.
Hem Styles for our Custom Roller Shades
Why not personalize the look with one of our custom hem styles. Ranging from traditional to contemporary from Tassels to Brush Fringe or just a simple Gimp, the right hem style can finish a layered window treatment by providing an upscale, professional look. Or just keep it simple with a straight Hem Bar covered with the Roller Shade Fabric. Or finish the custom Roller Shade with some of the more decorative bottom Styles shown on the Pictures.
