The 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. And if they get dirty, you are able to remove most of these shades and throw them in the washer. Roman shades also come in a wide variety of colors and textures that can match just about any décor.
Most roller shades are very similar to (or are the exact same thing as) solar shades. These window shades act as a filter for sunlight and provide protection from harmful UV rays. The difference between roller shades and solar shades is that roller shades move up and down or side to side on rollers, instead of being operated with a cord. You may also want to consider motorizing these window coverings. And if you want to completely block out any outside light or guarantee privacy in a room, you can achieve that with blackout roller 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, and it adds a unique aesthetic to the window area. Available in many stunning textiles, from sheer and light-filtering to opaque, you can tailor these shades to your preferences for privacy and light control.
Cellular Shades/Honeycomb Shades
This versatile style of window shade has a structure much like that of 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 cell design creates pockets of air that insulate your windows from hot and cold air, thus reducing energy consumption. Their design helps block external light and even offers excellent sound absorption.
Sheer window shades 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, or even porches and patios.
An inspired hybrid of fabric shades and horizontal blinds, Graber’s 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.
Woven Wood & Natural Shades
Graber Natural Shades are constructed from organic, renewable resources, including bamboo, jute, and grasses. They add breathtaking natural beauty to wide windows, patio doors, or closet doors. Rustic, natural drapes coordinate easily with Roman shades or sliding panels. Optional liners add more privacy and light control.
If your goal is to block out most natural light without completely eliminating it, solar shades are your best bet. These window shades are able to be used in interiors and exteriors to keep your home or patio safe from harmful UV rays.
