Cheap Roller Shades

Aug 5 2010

Everybody likes products that don’t cost a lot but are made with great quality materials. The only way a company can deliver that is by buying the materials in bulk. That’s why you sometimes find blinds for prices that don’t seem real. Roller shades are available for a variety of prices; however buying from a company that has an extensive presence will get you better deals. Roller window treatments are some of the best blinds on the market if you have floor-to-ceiling windows, or windows that get a lot of direct sunlight. They are made is with a sheer weave pattern that is similar to a miniature basket weave. They allow light to come in but not glare and they don’t block views. They keep out UV rays to reduce the temperature in the room. Below are a few of the best most cost effective roller shades on the market:

•    Eclipse 5% Roller Shades. The 5% means light is filtered effectively. They help control the temperature in a room and they diminish the sun’s glare and soften light. They keep UV rays out, but still give full access to views. They are energy efficient and make sure rooms don’t cook during the hottest hours of the summer.

•    Sheer Weave Roller Shades – 14%. These blinds offer shade for homes and work places. They are easy to roll up for clear views. The Phifer SheerWeave 3000 material has one of top UV ratings for blinds when they are shut.

•    Suntec Blackout Vinyl Roller Shades. For rooms that need to block out light for presentations or for home movie enjoyment, blackout vinyl roller shades do just that. They are designed with a polyester/fiberglass fabric. Light may leak in the sides.

Slightly more expensive, the following roller shade is one of the best for the environment:

•    EcoGreen Roller Shades. These are great for anyone concerned about the environment who is getting ready to re-decorate or is building a new environmentally sound home. EcoGreen Roller Shades are a great addition to any home. They are PVC-free. They have no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In addition, they are completely recyclable so they don’t clutter landfills. They qualify towards LEED certification and help energy performance, material and resource use and indoor environmental quality.

These blinds work on almost any size window and effectively keep the heat out. They can also be used as covers for open-faced cabinets and shelves. They color palette is basic in order to let a room speak for itself. They can be made to fit your exact window size and shape. These are not a one-size-fits-all shade.

Now that the heat is on, it’s time to get your windows covered. Jump on-line and see what you can find. Some places custom size your blinds in a day or two and with express shipping, you’ll have them in no time. Roller window shades are a great way to enjoy views and feel in touch with the day while they reduce heat and UV rays.
