Roller shades, also called roll up shades or roller blinds, are an easy and economical way to add color, style and texture to any decor. A popular choice, roller shades are constructed with modern fabrics and offer simple functionality for ease of use. Blindsgalore offers the best selection of custom roller shades available online, and from all the top brands. Add a splash of color to any room with the versatility and functionality of custom roller shades. Save with discount prices, free shipping and samples.
To operate spring-assisted roller shades, you gently push or pull on the bottom rail to adjust the shade to the desired height. Other roller window shades are adjusted with the use of a cord.
You have the option of choosing either a standard or reverse roll lift system. Standard roll means that the fabric rolls off the back of the shades, allowing the fabric to hang closer to the window for better light control. Reverse roll means that the fabric rolls off the front of the shade, hiding the fabric roll. The down side of reverse roll is the fabric hangs farther from the window glass which decreases light control. However, if you choose standard roll, the back of the fabric roll will show. If you are looking for the best of both worlds, choose standard roll and conceal the fabric roll with a custom valance or cornice.
Roll-up shades are available in light filtering, room darkening and blackout depending on what level of light control you need. Light filtering is better for rooms where you will not need a high level of privacy and would prefer to have some sunlight even with the shade closed. Room darkening and blackout fabrics are good for bedrooms or bathrooms where more privacy and light control are required. This will be further discussed in the fabric opacities section.
When choosing your shades you might want to consider whether the fabric opacity is sheer, semi-sheer, semi-opaque or opaque. This is a scale for how much light and visibility is allowed to pass through the shade. Sheer refers to the most transparent fabrics and opaque describes the most dense materials. Custom roller shades in semi-sheer and semi-opaque categorize the in-between fabrics and materials and their various opacities. Today's roller shades are offered in an array of colors and patterns, including striped roller blinds, florals, and tone-on-tone patterns.
To further customize your roller blinds, consider one of our popular lift options. Our motorized roller shades can be operated by remote control and add hands-free ease to controlling your window shades throughout the day. If you have small children or pets in the home, consider cordless roller shades for a sleek look and peace of mind.
