Window shades are grouped into two main categories which are roller shades and roman shades. The best way to tell them apart is by simply looking at them closely.
A roller shade is basically an aluminum tube that is cut to the width of your window. The fabric you choose is then attached to the tube and can be operated by a clutch or control.
The clutch has a chain attached to it that will roll the shade up or down. This allows you to choose how open the shade will be. Roller shades can also be motorized which will allow you to control the shade with the touch of a button.
Another window shade type is a roman shade. Roman shades are different than roller shades because they are pleated and are usually available in different style pleats.
You can also have them ordered with head rails and will no doubt improve your window’s appearance.
Roman shades can be made with different fabric types and this allows the designers to have a lot more freedom when redecorating a room.
If you notice, some resorts have roman shades made up of bamboo or woven wood materials. This little touch makes the room seem more exotic.
