A variety of optional upgrades for Blinds Chalet's line of solar screen shades add to the attractiveness of the window treatment and provide a motorized, cordless version of the shades.

"With a cassette headrail or fascia valance upgrade, the roll as well as the brackets are hidden at the top of the roller shades," states the company's website. "The cassette headrail offers a cleaner more finished look to the roller shades. Fascia valances are designed to hide the mounting brackets as well as the roll."

Another option is the reverse roll, which hides both the roller and fabric. In a standard roller shade, the fabric rolls off the back side of the roller, showing the back of the fabric on the roller. With a reverse roll, the fabric comes off the front of the roller and creates a cleaner, more appealing look, although consumers should note that privacy may be not be total because a reverse roll is farther away from the wall.

Motorized roller shades are another option offered by Blinds Chalet for its solar screen shades. "Each shade can be controlled with either a hand held remote control or a wall control," the website states.
