By far one of our most popular window fashions, soft fabric shades come in many different varieties, and it’s often a challenge for customers to select the ones perfect for their windows.
At Georgia Blinds & Interiors, serving the Atlanta area, we often get questions about the different types of soft shades. Below are a few of the options.
With soft, traditional, and natural styles, the unique line of Hunter Douglas roller shades can bring a refreshing and sophisticated look to your home. They roll up neatly and compactly when opened. When lowered, they offer unique design options you won’t find anywhere else.
With a large smooth fold, the classic un-pleated-fabric Roman shades have been a mainstay in window fashions for decades. Quality Hunter Douglas craftsmanship includes clear rings that coordinate with all linings and sheers, stiff battens to provide structure, an innovative cording system for enhanced child safety, and sewn tunnels that keep battens from slipping out. All hems are double-turned for a custom finished look, and the bottom hems are weighted for a smooth appearance.
If you want privacy in a room without it feeling dark and unpleasant, pleated shades are perfect. They come in a large variety of colors and fabrics, so you can match any décor.
Pleated shades’ fabric is folded into pleats that are held together with a string that operates the shade up and down. However, the downside to pleated shades is that the holes the strings go through can let in unwanted light.
Honeycomb shades have a honeycomb pleat that seamlessly folds and operates for light and privacy control. These shades come in a variety of opacities that can create the perfect amount of light in a room. They also have the options of a top-down/bottom-up lift system, which gives a unique look and great light control.
If you’re looking for an incredibly energy-efficient shade, look at the Hunter Douglas Architella honeycomb shade. With one honeycomb inside of another, the Duette Architella Honeycomb Shade is incredibly energy efficient. Duettes also have the largest range of sizes and can be custom-cut to specialty shapes.
