Roller Shades Can Make Your Home Look Beautiful

By Jesita Jerik

Roller shades are an excellent choice for adding value and beauty to your home. You can find them ready made or buy them made to order. The window shades are available in more colors and fabrics than you might imagine. If you want to find just the right ones for your decor, you may consider using custom window shades.

When you look over the various kinds of roller shades available you may be surprised with so many options. Even the most basic kinds come in such a wide variety of fabric choices that deciding where to start may be a bit difficult. It is important that you buy ones that have steel rollers rather than wooden ones. The steel rollers are very sturdy and will last much longer than the wooden kind.

You will need to measure your windows to determine the size you will need for your window shades. Most online sites will give you specific instructions for measuring and installing your window shades. The goal is to get a precise fit for your window, because it will look much better.

One interesting way to create a stylish shade is to change the hem style, add custom hemline trims, or add shade pulls that match your existing decor. These are options that cost little, but add lots of style. You can actually match the colors and fabrics of your new shades to give your windows a decorator look. Installing the window shades yourself will save you money but give you high fashion style.

Ordering fabric swatches before you buy is a great way to plan not only your window treatment, but also your room decor. You should see the fabrics that interest you in your own home light. You will need to compare and match fabrics to your existing decor. Things like coordinating furniture upholstery, paint colors, and flooring are important to getting that overall decorator appeal in your home.

Sometimes, you will be able to purchase extra fabric by the yard. This will be an important consideration should you decide to completely redecorate to match your new shades. The better sites do allow you buy extra fabric and will also offer decorating help and tips.

Online photo galleries are the best places to check out what designers are doing with window treatments. Windows in every room are shown with shades in all fabrics and colors. You might find one that is just what you would like to have in your own home. This will help you to move forward in your planning. This top notch inspiration from expert designers is what may help the most in getting the result you want.

Some websites also honor catalogue requests. This is perfect when you are not ready to make a final decision. Once the catalogue arrives, you can spend some time thinking about the various shade options right in your own home. Doing this will often give you the time needed to come up with solutions for window problems. An example of this might be having uneven or mismatched windows in the same space.
