Why Roller Shades Are a Great Choice for Your Home

Choosing a window treatment can be overwhelming. How do you know you’re picking the right one? What do they have to offer? Will they be a good fit for your style? At ABC Blind & Drapery, we want you to confidently walk away with window treatments you know are perfect for your home. But first, we understand that you want to know what you’re buying. With that in mind, we want to tell you more about our product, Roller Shades, and what makes them a great choice of window treatment for your home.

Types

Roller Shades are offered in a variety of styles and options. From black out shades to sheer shades, the choice is yours whether you want a considerable amount of natural light coming through or none at all. The four main types of shades are black out, semi-opaque, sheer and semi-sheer, but each option comes in almost an unlimited combination of decorative options, allowing you to personalize the shades to fit your unique style.

Versatility

At ABC, we love finding you the perfect, versatile window treatment to fit your home, and roller shades are just that. They can be combined with curtains or draperies, allowing you to mix and match your window treatments. With sleek roller shades, you can choose how much light you want filtering into the room while using curtains or draperies to add your decorative style to the room. Even better, if you don’t like the look of the rod or lift system, you can add a custom valance with your roller shades to help cover the hardware and create a refined look.

Save Money

While black out shades and semi-opaque shades offer modest energy benefits from blocking out the sun, what they really offer is a consistent amount of light into the room, making it easier on your air conditioner. By keeping the temperature consistent, the opaque shades help to lessen the amount of work your air conditioner has to do, saving you money on energy consumption expenses.

How to Clean

Window treatments can be a long-term investment if you take care of them, but first, you need to know how to care for them. For cleaning roller shades, it is best to start by dusting the shades with either the brush setting on your vacuum cleaner or with a clean cloth or feather duster. Once you have sufficiently dusted your shades, you’ll want to dampen a sponge or cloth with a mixture of warm water and a little bit of soap and wipe your shades in a circular motion. When you have cleaned the entirety of the shades, pat them dry with a new, dry cloth. After that, your roller shades should look as good as new!
