Roller Shades

roller shades denverTrending right now are roller shades, featuring many opacities and design styles. The latest sheers, light filtering, solar screen and blackout fabrics; select fabrics are NFPA 701 and GREENGUARD certified.

Roller shades now include safer lift systems, including our cordless and motorization options.

  • Cordless: To lower, gently pull the shade by lifting the handle to the desired location. To raise, gently pull downward and the shade will rise automatically, smoothly and dependably.
  • Motorized: Choose battery powered or plug-in option.  Motorization comes with a 15-channel remote and operates multiple shades individually or simultaneously.

Here are some different opacities to examine:

  • Sheer: Provides an atmospheric touch with significant view-through while softening the outside view. A perfect complement for Dual Shades.
  • Light Filtering: Offers a wide range of light diffusion from bright to dim. Ensures privacy and may reveal shapes or outlines depending on fabric.
  • Room Darkening: The fabric blocks almost 100% of incoming light. A perfect choice for environments where blackout and privacy control is a must.  You can choose from a wide array of valance/ fascia options to cover the fabric roll, including curved and square fascia, fabric valance or a deluxe wooden valance. Optional innovative Light Guard mounts to the window and helps achieve maximum light block effect even on the top and sides. Light Guard, in Premium Wood, comes in 10 colors to match any fabric of your choice. For non-wood Light Guard, it comes in 5 colors.

Hem bar options include: Plain Hem Bar: Clean, sleek and sturdy; perfectly weighted to provide seamless function. Fabric-wrapped Hem Bar: The matching fabric wrap provides a more uniform look throughout the shade.

Innovation is abundant in this section of window treatments.  Roman shades, wood woven natural shades, and window sheer shading systems are all the rage in design!

Roman Shades

roman shades denverRoman shades can be manufactured with any fabric which allows clients to feature their personal style. Manufactured in the USA, and high quality. Whether you prefer a flat style or pleated seams, or a hobbled style with large folds, Roman shades are a clean approach to home décor.  Roman shades look great on their own or combined with stationary side panels or a top treatment. Roman shades can have a liner on the back that hides the strings (both light filtering and blackout liner available) and lining the back will help children’s safety. They can be done top down bottom up or cordless or

Woven Wood Shades

woven wood shadesWood woven natural fibers can be done in either roller or roman shades. These are an ideal application for today’s eco conscious customers and really work well to bring a bit of natural texture to home décor. A Better View Décor feels that using a sustainable resource is smart decorating as most of these natural fibers, grasses and bamboos, can reproduce themselves rapidly. Woven woods can be done in any window or sliding glass door. Great application for those French glass insert office doors that newer homes have off the front entry way, as they filter the view into the office and look great on both sides of the window treatment. Sliding glass doors can feature a vertical drape application with a decorative cornice or a sliding panel track design.

Sheer Shading Systems

Hunter Douglas SILHOUETTESheer shading systems are ever-present in the world of window treatments. It is a modern way to filter like with sheer fabric that rotates to allow blockage also. Popular names of this product are Silhouette, Shangri-La, Tenera to name a few. This product allows the user to have daytime privacy, which means you can see out but no one can see in and filters the light beautifully. Many different lift options are available and the product will roll up into a headrail cover for efficient use of space. There are coordinates with this same look for sliding glass doors or vertical application. Perfect way to filter light in a more modern way than sheer panels under drapery. We highly recommend this product for today’s décor in most homes.
