Window shades offer privacy and light control with the designer styling of fabrics and vinyls in a large selection of colors, textures and opacity. Some of our window shades, like our cellular shades, provide insulation for levels of energy efficiency. The light control of window shades can block direct sunlight, or simply filter it for a soft, diffused glow. Many shades come with a neutral backing for the street-side view to allow uniformity, regardless of the style characteristics you choose on the interior of your home. Cord holes are hidden for added privacy and light control.
