Roller Shades
February 12, 2021

Roller shades can really put a room together by adding colors and design to your home or office. They are the simplest of treatments and the easiest to clean. These shades give you the option of choosing different opacity’s. This is the amount of light that you would like to allow in. Roller shades may serve as “blackout blinds” for your bedroom or a light filtering shade for your living room. When you choose a shade with a higher opacity it will allow more light to come in. The opacity levels start at 1% and rise from there. The higher you choose the more you’ll be able to see out. If you are able to see out during the evening times when lights are on inside home you do not have full privacy so choosing a higher opacity would be for someone that does not care much about privacy and would still like to have a good view. There’s several options when it comes to the operation of the roller shades. The most basic operation in manual. This will allow you to open and close with a cord that you pull similar to blinds. The most common and convenient is motorized. Motorized roller shades allow you to open and close your shades with just one simple click of a button on your remote. Here at Southern Exposure we also offer home integration. Home integration allows you to control your shades from your phone when you are away and also your Alexa, Google Home assistant and other popular home integration applications. Overall these shades hold up well over time and are pretty simple to maintain. They are also considered a more cost effective option. Solar shades are very eco-friendly and keep the costs of your electric bill down by minimizing the transfer of heat indoors.
