Different window shades exist for whatever home decor preferences a homeowner might have. In the YouTube video, “THE BEST TYPES OF WINDOW SHADES,” Sandra Chavez gives an overview of different window shade types.
First, there is the Roman shade, which has distinctive folds stacked evenly on each other when opened. It offers a variety of customizable options and adds a touch of elegance to rooms.
However, it is poorly suited for bathrooms since it promotes mildew growth.
The roller shade is another window shade type. It consists of fabric or vinyl rolled around a tube at the top of the window. It possesses striking simplicity, pairs well with curtains, and can be motorized. It is also budget-friendly.
Solar shades are another window shade variety. It blocks UV rays and sunlight glare and is similar to roller shades. A major con of this shade is the lack of privacy during nighttime due to increased visibility.
Lastly, there’s the cellular shade. It is made from two pieces of fabric and has air pockets. It is energy efficient and a good fit for homes with kids, although it is delicate and not easy to clean.
