Choose Traditional Or Contemporary Roller Shades In Washington DC

If you want a window shade that’s simple to operate, comes in a variety of options, and complements many kinds of windows, consider using a roller shade. Roller shades in Washington DC have been in style for decades, due to their simplicity, durability, and timeless style.

Roller shades are mounted above your window or just inside the window opening. To block outside light and cover the window, simply pull the shade down. Then have it lock where you want it until it’s time to pull it open once more. When you want an open view out your window, just give the roller shade a tug, and it will go back up.

Choose from a variety of fabrics, from light linings to solid black-out shades. A combination of hues, textures, fringe, and trims allow you to get a truly unique roller shade for your house.


Why Use Roller Shades In Washington DC

Roller shades are considered one of the more versatile window shades in Washington DC. If you need to block the sun’s glare but still allow in soft, diffused light, pick a light and see-through fabric. For blackout-shades in a bedroom or living area, use a heavier shade with a deep, opaque hue or pattern. Homeowners in Washington DC could also install custom-sized roller shades on windows that are small, like on a patio door or attic dormer window.

Like a cellular shade, a roller shade in Washington DC is usually cord-free. This makes roller shades a breeze to use and a great option for families with kids or pets. The window shade sits flush or right by the window, so they are perfect for shallow windows. The roll-up spindle lets a roller shade easily cover big windows, like a picture window or bow windows.


Motorized Roller Shades in Washington DC

While a lot of homeowners like the traditional cordless pull mechanism, others choose to install a motorized version. You may also have plenty of reasons to need custom-made motorized window shades in Washington DC. Sometimes, your windows are too tall and high so you need an efficient way to raise or lower your shades, without the hassle of pulling out a stool. Maybe you want to automate your window treatments by syncing them to your current home automation system. And finally, you have kids and/or pets and don’t want to worry about the dangers of cords dangling down. Whatever your reason, customized motor shades from Sunburst Shutters DC & Window Treatments are the best choice. 

With the touch of a button, you can operate your shades with perfect control. Your motorized roller shades in Washington DC can be automated and synced with your voice assistant and tell Alexa or Google to raise or lower your shades for you. You can also schedule your shades to move up or down at specific times, and you can control your shades from your smartphone when you’re not home.
