What is the Right Window Shade for you

by | Apr 28, 2017 | Residential Window Tint

When it comes to choosing treatments for your home or office, it’s hard to argue against window shades and their unique functionality. The right window shades combine soft fabric like materials with the convenience and control of traditional horizontal blinds. Shades offer a versatile and practical solution to covering your windows. With options from cordless to motorization, and sheer to room darkening, shades are a fantastic way to highlight the windows in your home or office. You might also be surprised to find that there are several different types of window shades available from Total Blinds & Window Tinting. Each of these shades has its advantages and disadvantages, but you are certain to find a style that works well for your home or office and ultimately, your needs.

Solar & Roller Shades

Solar & roller shades are what most people imagine when they think about window shades. They are easy to operate, and they are available in a variety of materials and colors. They are ideal for those who want some shade from the sun without completely blocking their view of the outdoors. Solar & roller shades are some of the most durable window coverings available in our dry climate. One of the added bonuses of solar shades is their ability to transition from interior to exterior applications for your deck or patio.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades combine a strikingly modern look with energy efficiency. These shades act as insulators that keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Total Blinds & Window Tinting has several opacity levels and many different cell sizes to choose from along with a variety of materials and colors.

Soft Shadings

Soft shades are a unique product that combines the soft fabric look with the light control option. As their name implies, Soft Shades are made from fabric like a roman shade but offer you the ability to tilt the veins for a view. The best way to describe these unique shades is a hybrid of a roller / roman/horizontal shade. They can be light filtering or room darkening, offering you lots of options!

Roman Shades

These timeless shades can give any home a clean and elegant look. Roman Shades are available in a multitude of colors, styles, fabrics and control options. Roman Shades can transform a room from drab to BAM! with the right fabric choice.

Woven Wood Shades

Our woven wood shades are made from all-natural woods, reeds, and grasses to provide a tasteful look to any home. These classic shades look great in any home and are available with or without a privacy liner. Although woven wood shades have been around for ages, the current natural materials will provide your home with a timeless look for years to come.

Pleated Shades

Finally, pleated shades are perfect for those who want to give their home a more modern look. Available in beautiful prints or sheer solids, pleated shades are a go-to for affordable and durable window covering options. Similar in appearance to a cellular shade, pleated shades offer a modern, but classic look with many colors and styles to choose from.
