How to Install Solid Print Roman Shades & Love Your Windows Again

If your new custom window shades have recently been delivered and you’re getting ready to put them up, you may be wondering if you’re prepared to start the process. Do you know how to install Solid Print Roman Shades? If you feel like you need a refresher before you jump in feet first, here’s a breakdown of the process.

Your Solid Print Roman Shades Shipment: Identifying Your Shades

how to install solid print roman shades in sherlock white - identify your window shades

You’ll notice the “name” created by the customer for this shade is printed on the outside of the box on a small label. It’s referred to under “Tag” as “Downstairs bath.”

Before you even open your boxes, there’s something you should look for on the box exterior. Check for a label (generally a separate label smaller than the actual shipping label) that designates what is included in the box. Along with the basic product info, you should also see the “name” you gave the shade when you input the measurements and specifications and added it to your cart on BlindsChalet.com.

For example, you may have “named” your shade something like “movie room” or “Master West Wall” or “Nursery #1,” etc. Paying attention to the “names” printed on the box label makes it far easier to identify your different shades without remeasuring each and every one and comparing them to your original window measurements. 

Check for Missing Shades or Missing Boxes:

Before you dive in and start installing your window shades, we also recommend that you do a quick check to make sure you’ve got all the shades you ordered, all the boxes in your shipment have arrived, and that your shades are going to fit in your windows (there were not measurement mistakes – on your end OR our end). Checking the labels to identify which rooms and windows your shades belong to makes it much quicker to determine if there are any window shades missing from your order. If for some reason, you have a shade or two missing…call customer service or jump online to chat with one of the Design Consultants. But not until you double check that your full order has been delivered. A missing shade will sometimes mean that your order is arriving in multiple boxes, and there may still be a box or two in transit.

For example, if you received 2 boxes and they are marked 1 of 3 and 3 of 3 – there’s one box that hasn’t been delivered. Sign in to your account at BlindsChalet.com and check your order status to see if there’s still one more box on the way, and track it for its eta. Or call customer service or access a Design Consultant through Online Chat.

Focusing on the Windows: A History of Success

BlindsChalet.com was focusing on the windows as a partner in Season 8 of OWN Network’s award-winning show Home Made Simple with Laila Ali. Details below.

At Blinds Chalet we are dedicated to focusing on the windows, and we have a history of success! Consider this a bit of a highlight reel featuring various projects and collaborations throughout the years that we found inspired homeowners and designers to expect the best for the window treatments they installed in their homes and offices. 

A History of Success: Focusing on the Windows with Own Network

Own Network, Home Made Simple Episode 808 Summary: The Home Made Simple team looks for creative ways to tackle household projects that tend to spend far too much time on the “to do” list. Each Home Made Simple episode is designed to provide inspiration to help get DIY projects started around the house, point out great ways to save money and maximize a limited budget, and suggest time saving techniques. In this episode of the award-winning home improvement show, Home Made Simple, Own Network designers focused on two amazing sisters. After Ami was diagnosed with cancer, her sister Boots moved in to be there for her and provide any help she might need. Ami has a rock-n-roll home decor style, that just didn’t suit her sister’s style at all. The Home Made Simple team decided to do something about it, so they arranged a surprise! The team managed to coordinate a “switcheroo” with each sister working on redecorating the other’s room and as part of the process, the team chose new window treatments to install from the wide variety offered at BlindsChalet.com. The result? It’s been called one of the most amazing makeovers of the season.

4 Most Popular Window Shade Features in 2021

We’ve already discussed the most popular window shades in 2021 and talked about the differences between the different types of window shades, window blinds, and shutters currently trending with homeowners and interior designers. However, did you know that once you decide on the type of window treatment you prefer, you’re not finished? It’s almost more fun to decide which features you’ll add to your window treatments. So, to give you a few ideas, let’s take a look at the 4 most popular window shade features in 2021! 

4 Most Popular Window Shade Features in 2021: 

Popular Window Shade Features

  1. Motorized Shades or Blinds: Blinds and shades with the motorized feature added can be opened and closed with the flip of a switch. Options for controlling motorized blinds or shades include a handheld remote control or a wall switch. Examples of window treatments that offer the motorization feature include honeycomb shades (battery operated so no electrical wiring is required to install these motorized shades). Check out our wide variety of motorized blinds and shades. Adding the Motorized upgrade is an option available when you add the product to your online shopping cart, and upgrade fees are listed clearly.
  2. Smart Hub Motorization: When considering your window treatments, technology is now a factor. Many homeowners and office managers are opting for Smart Hub Motorization. This add-on feature makes it possible for you to open and close your shades before you enter a room, without getting off the sofa, or even before you arrive home from work. Many consumers lean toward Smart Hub Motorization features not just for the convenience they offer, but for added safety.
  3. Cordless Options: In addition to being clean and simple, cordless options are a safe choice for children and animals. (In fact, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, between 1990 and 2015, there were 16,827 window blind-related injuries among children under six years old). Statistics like this have led to a massive influx in demand for cordless shades and blinds.
  4. Top Down Bottom Up Feature: The extra control of light and privacy offered by the top down bottom up feature draws many who enjoy natural light in their living spaces, but need privacy and want to enjoy the natural light on their terms. The top down bottom up feature offers the unique opportunity to open the shades to let light in without relinquishing your privacy. 

Remember the Point of Window Shades: Privacy & Light Control

Window shades and blinds are designed to provide privacy, control the sunlight coming in from outside, and help maintain a home’s temperature. The plethora of options in today’s marketplace make it possible for the modern window treatment to do all that while also dressing up your home or office’s windows and creating a specific look for your space.
