Types of Window Shades
With over 10 types of shades available in a variety of colors, patterns, and materials, homeowners have a wide selection to choose from!
Roller Shades: These shades have been around a long time and have withstood the test of time. Fabric is rolled around a hollow tube. Pull the fabric down to get more privacy; roll the fabric up to get more sun. Rollers can be spring-loaded or have a bead-and-reel mechanism.
Pleated Shades: These shades are simple to operate and easy on the eyes. The fabric is pleated like an accordion or a hand-held fan. Pull the shades down for privacy – the pleated pattern is quite pleasing. Raise the shade up for more light – the pleats stack nicely at the top of the window.
Honeycomb (Cellular) Shades: These shades are made by joining two or more fabrics together to form honeycomb-like “cells”. The cells trap air so the shades also serve as insulation against outside heat/cold. Honeycomb cell shades can be vertical (for patio doors) or horizontal (for windows). They can be single-cell, double-cell, or triple-cell shades
Roman Shades This type of shade is arguable the most elegant type. When they are closed, the shade looks like a section of fabric. But if you raise the shade, the fabric folds upon itself to form evenly-spaced ribbed structures. For Soft Fold (Hobbled) Roman Shades, the fabric is already folded into loops even when they are in the pulled-down position.
Other types of window shades include balloon shades, tie-up shades, pleated shades, sheer shades, bamboo shades, skylight shades, solar shades, outdoor shades, and more. The above shades can be made “cordless” or motorized. Overwhelmed with the multitude of options? Contact Q Blinds for more information on San Diego Custom Shades.
