Difference in Window Shade Types
1. Roman Shades
Roman Shades are mainly used to block out the sun. When they are down they are smooth unlike most conventional blinds, but they stack up when opened so that you can see what your window. When you want to put the shades up, they gather, rather than roll, to the top of the window.
2. Cellular Shades
Cellular shades are double paneled to act as insulators to keep your home more energy efficient. They are called cellular shades because of the honeycomb like design, they have two panels of fabric, one that faces the window and one that faces the room, and in the middle there is an empty air pocket. These pockets help protect the room against heat loss in the winter and absorption in the summer.
3. Woven Wood Interior Shades
Woven wood shades are pretty much what they sound like. They are made from natural material such as reeds, grasses, bamboo, and others that are woven together to give you privacy while filtering in some natural light. They are perfect for adding a little pop of texture to your home.
4. Roller Shades
As you would expect, roller shades roll up when they are not in use. Roller shades come in a diverse selection of patterns, fabrics, and textures allowing you to customize the perfect shade for your home. They can easily roll up to allow sunlight to shine into your room.
