Window Product Information - Shades


  • There are four main types of shades today are honeycomb shades, Roman shades, woven wood shades and the traditional window shades. 
  • There are unlimited choices of fabrics, textures and opacity. All offer varying degrees of light control and privacy.
  • With the vast array of fabrics and materials to choose from, there is a window shade to suit almost any room in the home.
  • The privacy and light control needs for the room will dictate which of the many fabrics you can choose from.  The more sheer fabric can filter light and the opaque can darken the room.
  • Fabric texture options with window shades can accommodate formal looks to casual looks and anything in between, making these products popular for any room and its decor. 
  • These products can be installed with an inside or outside mount depending on the window molding and sill construction. 

Roman Shades

  • Most roman shades are simple, flat fabric shades that draw up in neat, even folds, giving them a tailored look.
  • Some roman shades maintain their contoured folds while in the down position. 
  • They are available in various types of fabrics ranging from smooth semi-sheer polyesters to highly textured semi-opaque polyester/rayon blends and also in room darkening fabrics.
  • Sleek and sophisticated, Modern Roman Shades consistently present a clean, neat appearance.

Woven Wood Shades

  • Woven wood shades are made up of bamboo, reeds, grasses and jutes adding warmth and dimension to a room.
  • These shades hang flat in the lowered position and then have overlapped folds when raised. They are uniquely textured, adding casual good looks to any room.
  • Woven wood shades bring nature inside the home with traditional styling. 
  • These shades are well suited in a casual setting, like a family room or den.  In a contemporary or tropical influenced design, these shades work well in any room.
  • These shades are made of all natural materials.  Woven wood shades may have knots, slight surface cracks, variations in paint and stain, grain and pattern irregularities and slight distortions.  These are considered normal and only enhance the beauty of the natural product. 

Window Shades

  • A vast improvement to the traditional roller shade, window shades come in hundreds of fabrics, colors and styles and you can order select fabrics separately for designing room accessories. 
  • The fabric on these shades can be made from durable polyester to high tech dyed screened fabrics with an array of opacity options.
