Check out our showroom in Athens GA, or request a call and we will be in touch with you to schedule a free, in-home consultation. You can use window shades in any room of your home, but they are especially great for the living room. Choose between roller shades or roman shades to best suit your decoration needs.
Roller shades are available in a wide selection of colors and materials, perfect for giving your home a modern look. Roman shades look elegant and offer more design flexibility since they can usually be mounted inside or outside the window frame. You can also adjust roman shades easily to make more light enter or block it out depending on the situation. It’s not surprising that roman shades are often found in homes, as they are a stylish window treatment option. Roman shades provide the perfect combination of style and function for any room. They offer the ease of use you’re looking for with cordless controls and are easily adjustable to meet your needs. Many homeowners choose to use roman shades in their living rooms due to the relaxed and elegant look.
Easy and affordable, replaced all our blinds and they look great. Installation was a breeze and the More Than Blinds team was a pleasure to have in my home.

Types of Window Shades
Roller shades are made from one long piece of fabric wrapped around a roller, which is hung at the top of your window. They can be made from many materials, including light-filtering or room-darkening fabrics. They match well with contemporary and traditional interior design styles. They can be used in any room but are most commonly found in living rooms and bedrooms. While some people find roller shades less attractive than other window treatments, they remain popular because they’re easy to operate, they come in many different materials, and they effectively reduce glare in sunny rooms.
Roman shades are made from one piece of fabric gathered into folds. They’re hung from a horizontal track and operated with a cord. Roman shades can be raised to reveal the window or lowered to cover it. They fit well into casual and traditional interior design styles, especially in living rooms and bedrooms. While Roman shades can be difficult to clean because of their many folds and they can fade over time in rooms with a lot of sun, they’re still very popular because they’re both functional and stylish.
Honeycomb shades are made from a piece of fabric with small, honeycomb-shaped cells that trap air, making them energy efficient. These window shades fit well with contemporary and casual interior design, and while they’re a good choice for any room, they’re especially popular in bedrooms and living rooms. While they’re not as durable as other window treatments and may require professional installation, they’re still a big hit with the eco-friendly crowd because of their energy efficiency, versatile design options, and availability in various materials, such as bamboo and reed.
Woven Wood Shades
Woven wood shades provide a warm, natural look to any room. They’re made from natural materials like bamboo, rattan, and grasses. Woven window shades complement casual, traditional, or rustic interior design styles, and while they can be used in any room, they’re most commonly found in living rooms and bedrooms. While woven wood shades aren’t as durable as other window treatments and may require professional installation, they offer many benefits, including privacy, light control, and insulation. They are also eco-friendly and easy to clean!
As the name suggests, Solar window shades are designed to protect your home from the sun’s harmful rays. They keep your furniture and floors from fading and can also reduce your energy bills by keeping your home cooler in the summer. Solar shades work well with modern or minimalist interior design styles, and while they can be used in any room, they’re most commonly found in living rooms. While they’re not as effective in blocking light as some other window coverings, they protect your furniture and floors from the sun’s harmful rays and reduce energy bills by keeping your home cooler in the summer.
Blackout window shades are made from heavy, opaque fabrics that completely block light and even reduce noise pollution from outside. They fit well with modern and minimalist styles of interior design, and they’re a good choice for bedrooms, home theaters, or any room where you want darkness and quiet. While blackout window shades can be difficult to install and are not as durable as other window treatments, their unique light- and noise-filtering capabilities make them a popular choice nonetheless, especially for people living in cities.
Revolve window shades are made from a piece of fabric wrapped around a cylinder. They can be opened and closed with a cord or remote control. They’re popular in contemporary and modern homes, and they work great for any room in which you want to control the amount of light. Revolve window shades can be expensive and may require professional installation, but they’re still a great way to control the amount of light in a room and they’re very easy to use, as they can be operated with a remote.
Sheer window shades are made from a lightweight fabric that allows some light to pass through. Depending on the cut of the fabric, these can suit any interior design style, though they’re particularly popular in contemporary, modern, and traditional homes. The most popular rooms for sheer window shades are living rooms, kitchens, and home offices. Sheer window shades provide less privacy than other types, making them less popular in private spaces like bedrooms. However, they’re a great way to add a little privacy to a room while allowing plenty of light to pass through, and they’re also very easy to clean.
Bamboo window shades are made from natural bamboo reeds that are woven together, providing a warm and casual look to any room. Bamboo window shades are most popular in casual, traditional, and rustic homes. They’re a good choice in any room but are most commonly found in living rooms. While bamboo window shades are not as durable as other window treatments and may require professional installation, they offer many benefits, including privacy, light control, insulation, and eco-friendliness.
Motorized shades give your home a high-tech feel while providing ease and convenience. Motorized window shades can be opened and closed with remote control. The most popular interior design style for motorized window shades is contemporary. They’re a good choice in any room, but are commonly found in living rooms, bedrooms, and home offices. While motorized window shades can be a bit more expensive, they still have a lot to offer, including light control, privacy, convenience, and energy efficiency.
Cordless window shades can be opened and closed without pulling on a dangerous string hanging from the base. They’re designed without cords for added safety around children and small pets, though the lack of cords also gives them a clean and modern look. Because of this, they fit well into contemporary and modern homes. Cordless window shades are a good choice in any room but are commonly found in living rooms, bedrooms, and home offices. While cordless window shades can be expensive and may require professional installation, they remain very popular for their style, ease of use, and — most of all — their safety. Pet owners and parents of young children will no longer need to worry about their loved ones getting tangled up in the cords when there are no cords to tangle.

How to Choose the Right Shades
Choosing the right window shades for your home is about determining what is important to you. Factors that you should keep in mind include the below items. Stop by our showroom at 2595 Atlanta Highway, Athens, GA to see some options and additional features in person.
Depending on the type of window shades that you choose, your shades can block out all light and noise or simply filter the light. If you’d like all light and most noise muffled, we recommend blackout shades. If you’re content to simply filter the light, sheer or solar shades are a good option.
You’ll also want to consider how much privacy you need in each room. If you live in a busy area or have large windows, window shades can add a level of privacy to your home.
Safety is essential when choosing window shades if you have young children or pets. Look for cordless or motorized window shades to minimize the risk of injuries.
Insulation & Energy Requirements
Insulation is another crucial factor when choosing window shades. If you live in an area with extreme temperatures, window shades can keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Consider how easy your new shades will be to clean. Some window shades, like roller and solar shades, can easily be wiped down with a damp cloth. Others, like Roman and woven wood shades, may need more care.
Shape & Unconventional Needs
You might need window shades tailored to your room, aesthetic, or uniquely designed window frames.

Cordless window shades and motorized shades are safe for homes with young children or pets. These can be easily operated with remotes, so there are no dangerous cords.
Blackout window shades provide the most privacy by blocking all light and even some noise. Sheer window shades provide the least privacy but allow some light to come through.
Roller window shades and Roman window shades are the most popular because they are easy to operate and can be made from different materials, like light-filtering or blackout fabrics.
Window shades should be darker than your walls to reduce glare and provide privacy. Choose a brighter color or pattern if you want your window shades to stand out.
