How to Use Roller Shades to Create a Super Chic Look for Your Home

This summer, give your home a stylish makeover with some experiments with your roller shades. If you do not have roller shades already, you may want to consider getting them installed because of the several benefits they offer.

Roller shades are available in a wide range of fabrics, colours and opacity options. The most popular types of roller shades are blackout roller shades, room darkening and light filtering shades with different opacity levels.

So if you are ready to experiment and redesign the look of your home like a professional, here’s what you need to do:

Mounting It Right

Designers recommend installing the blind inside the jamb rather than on the wall above the window. Roller shades are classy window coverings and installing them on the wall above the window ruins their look and makes them appear tacky.

Conceal the Mechanism

Usually, roller shades come in with an integrated valence, which is the metal or upholstered box at the top that hides the roller. The best way to get a clean look is to customize the valence and match it with the shade of your wall. This hides the entire mechanism and gives you a clean, sophisticated look.

If you cannot manage a valance box, then choose a mechanism that allows the shade to roll down the front side and hide the mechanism from view.

Pick the Right Transparency

You need to understand the light filtration requirements of each room before you pick the blinds. Complete blackout blinds work best in children’s bedrooms. For your living room, you might want to look for something that gives you a soft, diffused look. You can always check out nearby stores or engage a consultant to understand available options.

Pick the Right Colour

The usual approach while picking colours is matching it with the rest of the colour scheme of your room. For a change, visualize the kind of light a certain colour would filter the light into your room and the effect it will have on the look of your room.

For instance, you can choose a lighter colour for the shade in your living room. But imagine the effect it would have if it had a tint of gold in it.

These are unconventional and experimental methods for exploring different ways in which roller shades can be used to enhance the look of your home. If you are still not sure, you can reach out to Kremer Blinds for help and support.
