Fabric window shades are an amazing addition to any room in your home or office. They are so versatile, and they add a touch of class to any window or door.

There are a host of different fabric window shades available, but they fall into five main categories:

  • Roller – roller shades are a durable, functional option to cover your windows. You can go with a standard style, or get creative with the fabric choices, or even artwork or portraits printed on the inner side of your pull down roller shades. They are a great way to block out the sunlight and secure privacy, but with just the tug of the shade or a flip of a switch, you have the full window view to enjoy again.
  • Cellular Shades – These shades, sometimes referred to as Honeycomb Shades, make a great way to provide class and style to a room, and insure a great form of insulation as well, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. These multi-layered shades are a pull down pleated shade, which is layered for a fuller, more substantial look and feel. They can raise from the bottom up, or lower from the top down. They have light filtering capabilities, or if you prefer, room darkening features.
  • Roman Shades – When folks hear the term Roman Shades, many of them will think of the old-time theater curtains that rise slowly, forming elegant pleats as it goes up, and releasing them as it comes back down. There are a variety of styles from which you can choose to create a clean, sharp looking window cover, to a more dramatic look with bolder folds.
  • Pleated Shades – These shades come in a multitude of styles and fabrics, from light filtering sheer, to complete black-out capabilities. They provide a crisp, clean look to any window. They function as either a bottom up shade, or top down, and can be installed to fit any window or door. There are an array of colors from which to choose, and various fabrics for the most singular styles.
  • Sheer Shades – These fabric window shades provide the pleasure of viewing the outside scenery, while blocking harmful UV rays from coming in. They suggest elegance; yet possess a high degree of functionality. Whether in an office or home setting, the fabric sheers are a great option for windows not requiring privacy in the evening when lights are on inside and off outside. They do provide an extra layer of privacy, however, when used in concert with other window coverings such as curtains, shutters, or other fabric window shades.


The number of styles of fabric window shades is vast, and the possibilities are endless. Any home owner or professional decorator shopping for these fabric window shades is like a kid shopping in a candy store!
