Interior and Exterior Shades and Solar Screens

There are so many choices and styles of window shades and each is designed to perform specific functions. K to Z Window Coverings offer the highest quality shades and screens from Graber Window Treatments, TimberBlind MetroShade, Horizons Window Fashions, and Insolroll Solar Screens.

Roman Shades

Roman Shades, Roman Window ShadesThe main feature of Roman Shades is that they are made of cloth or fabric-like materials that allow the shade to accordion as they move up, and smooth out as they move down. Roman shades are a bit harder to clean than aluminum or vinyl blinds, however you are able to remove most of these shades and throw 'em in the washer! Roman shades also come in a very wide variety of colors and textures that match just about any décor. TimberBlind Roman Shades  

Roller Shades

Roller ShadesMost roller shades are very similar to (or the exact same thing as) solar shades. These shades act as a filter for sunlight and provide protection from harmful UV rays. But, as you have probably guessed, roller shades move up & down or side to side on rollers instead of a cord. You may also want to consider motorizing these window coverings.

Pleated Shades, Pleated Window ShadesPleated Shades

Like Roman shades, pleated shades are made of a cloth material that folds as it moves up...and unfolds as it comes down. However, these shades have crisp folds of fabric and pleated edges when not fully extended. This feature gives the window treatment depth and structure, plus adds unique eye candy to the window area! Available in many stunning textiles, from sheer and light-filtering to opaque, tailor these shades to your preference for privacy and light control.  

Cellular Shades / Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb Shades, Honeycomb Window ShadesThis versatile style of window shade has a structure much like horizontal blinds. When viewed from the side, you can tell they are designed as flexible diamond-shaped cells made up of a solid lightweight cloth material. This structure allows them to slide down from the top, or up from the bottom. The big advantage with cellular shades is that the cell design creates pockets of air that insulate windows from heat and cold, thus reducing energy consumption. Their design helps block external light and even offers excellent sound absorption. TimberBlind Honeycomb Shades

Sheer Shades

Sheer Shades, Sheer Window ShadesThe big advantage of using sheer shades as a window covering is that they offer privacy without blocking too much light from the room. The sheer fabric actually diffuses the incoming light and provides excellent lighting for kitchens, bathrooms, and even porches & patios.

Layered Shades CategoryLayered Shades NEW!

An inspired hybrid of fabric shades and horizontal blinds, Mezzanine Layered Shades offer the ultimate flexibility in light control. In two closely linked layers of fabric, stripes of sheer fabric combine with tightly woven bands of color. The sheer fabric protects furniture, flooring, and artwork from damaging UV rays, while the solid fabric stripes filter or block the light.
