Window Treatment Ideas with Custom Shades

Updated: Oct 27, 2021

Window treatments can take a home from “drab to fab” in no time at all. If you decide to go with custom shades, you can make your home look like you hired a professional decorator. Color, style and the type of shade you choose can make a simple room look like a minimalist creation or a designer’s dream.

There are different types of shades, each having its own style and function. Decorating your windows is like putting the icing on the cake, it’s the finishing touch that pulls the whole look together. The best part about it is that the shades will fit your windows perfectly since they are measured to fit and installed by a professional.

What Benefit Do Shades Offer?

Besides blocking the sun from fading your carpets and furniture, shades are good for insulating your windows. Depending on the color you choose, they can keep heat from transferring through the glass and heating up your rooms. They also help lower your electric bills in the summer because the room is cooler with the shades closed, therefore your air conditioner will cycle less often.

Room Darkening

Shades also let you choose how much light to let in the room. Certain types of materials let light in or keep it out entirely. Some offer a modern, stylish look, while others offer a natural, earthy look. It will depend on your style and what you prefer.


When you have window shades, you can close them when you want privacy. When closed, no one can see inside your home. This is good for people who travel for work, no one will know you’re not home. When you are at home, you can feel safe knowing that people can’t see inside, even when the lights are on.

A Few Types of the Shades We Offer

Roller Shades

Roller shades are very versatile and come in just about any color, pattern, style, and opacity you want. If style is high on your list of priorities, roller shades give you a sleek, beautiful look for your home.

Roller Shades

Roller shade material choices range from stylish and bold patterns to classic textures such as woven fabrics or tweed. Colors range from plain or neutral colors to rich vibrant colors.

Roman Shades

Roman shades are made of fabric and differ from standard window shades in that they fold up evenly when being opened. When open they are smooth and look great on any window.

Roman Shades

This type of shade combines the look and feel of luxury draperies with the convenience of a shade. These work really well for adding color or texture to a room, especially when paired with a contrasting curtain or drapery.

Natural Shades

Natural shades are made of woven sticks, bamboo, jute, or wild grasses. For those wanting a “green” or eco-friendly window covering, natural shades fit the bill. They are sourced from renewable resources and bring the look of nature indoors in a beautiful, harmonizing way.

Natural Shades

Their appearance adds so much texture to the decor of your home or office. The combination of natural bamboo and wood used in woven shades gives any room an elegant look. The materials are as durable as they are beautiful. These shades are made to last a lifetime and give you years of enjoyment in your home.

Layered Shades

Layered shades are a hybrid of fabric shades and horizontal blinds. They are designed like roller shades but have two layers of fabric with unified stripes of sheer fabric combined with tightly woven bands of color. The visual effect is stunning and stylish. These work well in any room.

Layered Shades

The fabric blocks the sun to help protect your furniture and floors from damaging UV rays, while the stripes of color create a unique look for your room. There are no seams or cords to disrupt the look, just a contemporary style with clean, horizontal lines

Sheer Shades

Sheer shades offer the functionality of traditional blinds with the elegance of delicate sheer fabrics. These shades are constructed by suspending horizontal vanes between two fabric sheers, giving you the best of both worlds. They are a seamless combination of light control and style. These work well with any style of decor. Sheer shades can be used alone or paired with a drapery panel for a polished look that is stylish and modern.
