How Much Do Roller Shades Cost in 2022?

Updated: Mar 31, 2022

Modern Roller Shades

Roller shades have come a long way in the last 40 years. They aren’t the same cheap, vinyl eyesores that make that unpleasant “flap flap flap” sound when you pull and release the bottom hem.

New roller shades are well beyond the earlier generations in both form and function. Our modern roller shades are available in hundreds of materials in varying opacities and every color imaginable. They also are available in various lift configurations like cordless, motorized, continuous cord loop, and others. And if you want something fancier, there are multiple hem styles, trim accent gimp, and bead trims from which you can choose.

Some of the options are free upgrades, but others will cost you money. Some people just want the simplest thing they can find, but others want something that completely changes the look of their home. Roller shades offer so many fabrics and so many options, that they are one of the very best options for both types of customers!

What Can I Expect to Pay?

So how do Roller Shades stack up against other products when it comes to price? Just like any other product it depends on several factors including materials and options chosen, as well as the more obvious factor: window size.

While windows can be almost any size, single-window openings are usually one of just a few sizes:

36” x 60” (typical upper floor window)

36” x 72” (typical lower floor window)

48” x 48” (typical bathroom window)

24” x 72” (typical French door opening)

Roller Shades for these windows will vary greatly based on fabric selection, what options are chosen, and the pricing of the retailer.

Here is a price range that you can expect to pay for each of the windows:

36” x 60” $160 - $596

36” x 72” $200 - $634

48” x 48” $180 - $664

24” x 72” $135 - $554

The lowest prices represent very basic fabric with no upgrade options. The upper-end price represents the most expensive fabrics with paid upgrades. One option that has not been included is motorization, but motorization typically adds about $200/single window opening for a lithium-ion battery-powered motor. This includes a small two-button remote control that can control multiple shades at once.

Bottom Line on Roller Shades

Roller shades check off a lot of boxes for most people. They are a very affordable option in the vast realm of window treatments. They hold up well and age well, and with the lifetime warranty that is included with our products, we guarantee that they will function perfectly for the lifetime of the product.
