Roller Shades

Roller | Tustin Blinds & Shades, CA

Roller shades are a very common window coverings options. They can be raised or lowered by tugging on the shade itself or by pulling a rope or tassel; the latter option would be preferable, naturally. These shades work via a rolling mechanism, known as a “cassette head”, which is attached to the top of the window.

Different Hanging Options

When it comes to hanging roller shades, there is no one hard and fast rule. You actually have a few different options. First, there’s the standard roll, which is when the fabric rolls in a backward motion. In this case, the shade sticks close to the window pane, thus blocking a great deal of light and offering the most privacy. This way is ideal for windows with a shallow depth. The reason for that is that it gets the fabric farther inside the opening than if the roll was reversed.

The Opposite Option

A reverse roll means just what its name implies—the fabric goes in front of the roller instead of behind it; i.e. reverse. This type of roll is often used for window shades that have two distinct colors on each side of the fabric. Blackout shades are a good example, as they are black on one side and white on the other. A reverse roll is ideal for blocking things like window cranks or door handles. These can often push the fabric away from the window pane, and create a bump that ruins the aesthetics.

The Guided Way

The third option is side channels, which are aluminum felt-lined narrows on the sides and bottom of a window opening. The shade fits into them—akin to a track. This creates a seal on the window, blocking out all light. This is ideal for bedrooms or living rooms or dens with home entertainment systems.
