Shades are technically any type of window treatment that can be raised and lowered to fully or partially cover a window. Since this can include window blinds, some people get confused and assume shades are just blinds. Yet there are some great varieties of window shades in Tampa, choices that truly stand on their own.

The classic staple of window dressings, traditional shades offer a clean, streamlined and no fuss solution for window coverings. We can review with you the options that you have, in order to accomplish the desired look that you are going for. The appropriate choice of traditional shades can provide you with visual appeal as well as essential functionality.
The Roman shade is easily discernible from its unique design of fabric that stacks up in neat and even layers when raised, and then is flat when lowered. They can be crisp pleats that are refined or loose drapes that are more dramatic. Either way you go, the final look is stunning.
Honeycomb / Cellular Shades
Honeycomb or cellular shades are the perfect choice for anyone seeking an additional level of insulation. These window coverings are comprised of a system of pleats that create air pockets. The end result is what looks like a line of honeycomb, from the side, and that uses the air pockets to help keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
One of the still most commonly used type of window dressing is the roller shade. This shade is made up of vinyl, plastic or fabric and rolls up on to a cylinder. There are a variety of options for colors and prints that can make your shades look the way you want, to fit the visual dynamics of your home or business.
As the name would imply, woven shades are constructed from a pattern of weaving, which allows diffused light to pass through. This is an ideal choice if you love natural light but would like a little more privacy.
Woven Wood Shades
The most popular choice of woven shades is constructed from wood. This helps you keep a natural and earthy look that will help a casual space feel more elegant and a sophisticated look feel a little lighter.
Nothing quite beats the look and allure of pleated shades, also referred to as accordion shades. The bottom line is that you will appreciate the simple beauty of this charming style of window treatment.
