There are many different types of window shades available. They come in all sorts of sizes and colors, and are made of a variety of different materials. Different shades will add different personal touches to every room in the house.

Window shades help filter sunlight, control it, or block it out completely. Control sunlight access with a chain, string, or even remote control. Imagine closing your shades at the press of a button, no more getting up off the couch to adjust a nasty glare. Motorized shades also allow you to but shades where they are not easily reached, or somewhere the chains might be a nuisance.

Pleated shades are ideal for filtering sunlight with a material color of your choice. They provide a friendly touch of color to the room. If needed, a pleated shade liner can be added to increase the light blocking capacity.
