If you are looking for a simple and versatile style: Roller Shades
Rollers shades are a great affordable option that offers a lot of versatility. From the many different colors and fabrics available you will surely find something that fits your decor.
We love that they don’t take much room once they are opened and that they are very simple.

Roman shades are a very popular option when it comes to window treatments.
We love how they fold in a neat way creating simple lines. They look great in modern decor.
If you are looking to make your bedrooms really dark: Blackout Curtains
Blackout curtains are thicker and create an elegant effect in your room. They don’t let any light in to help your sleep quality which is perfect for bedrooms. You have a lot of different options to choose from - many colors and materials are made now to block the light out.
We love floor-to-ceiling curtains to create a more luxurious look and make the room look bigger.
If you are looking to improve your home energy efficiency: Cellular Shades
Cellular shades are a great way to make your home more energy-efficient and reduce your energy bills. Their honeycomb structure helps to trap the air and better regulate the temperature of the room. When it is hot outside, it will keep your house cool and when it is cold out and you are turning the heat inside it will help you keep the warm air in.
If you are looking for convenience: Automatic Shades
Whether you have high or hard-to-reach windows or you simply want to make your life easier then automatic shades are the way to go. With just one button, you will be able to control all the shades of your house.
We love the fact they don’t have cords dangling making it a better-looking and safer solution.
If you are looking for a natural look: Wood Blinds
Wood shades are a great natural and sustainable window treatment options.
You can choose a more classic and sturdy look and pick hardwood blinds or choose rattan blinds that will be lighter and more see-through and create a more boho look.
