A popular window fashion, shades are frequently sought by our customers. Soft fabric shades are particularly popular, and at Crosstown Custom Shade and Glass in Manhattan, we often get questions about the many different varieties of window shades. To help you find the perfect shade for your window, let’s take a look at a few of the basic types of soft window shades.
Traditional roller shades roll up neatly and compactly. When lowered, they offer unique design options you won’t find in other products. With Traditional, Natural, and Soft styles, our unique line of roller shades can bring a sophisticated look to your home.
A classic, un-pleated fabric shade with a large, smooth fold, Roman shades have been a mainstay in window fashions for decades.Quality Hunter Douglas craftsmanship includes a cording system for enhanced child safety, clear rings that coordinate with all linings and sheers, stiff battens to provide structure, and sewn tunnels that keep battens from slipping out. All hems are double-turned for a custom look, and the bottom hems are weighted for a smooth appearance.
Honeycomb shades have a honeycomb pleat that seamlessly folds and operates for light and privacy control. Because they come in a variety of opacities, they can create the perfect amount of light in a room.
They also have the options of top-down/bottom-up lift system to give a unique look and fantastic light control.
With a pleated shade, the fabric is folded into pleats that are held together with a string that operates the shade up and down. They are the perfect choice if you want privacy without the room feeling dark and unpleasant. They come in a wide variety of colors and fabrics, so they can complement any décor. The downside to pleated shades is the strings and the holes the strings go through, which can let in unwanted light.
