Roller & Solar Shades

Roller and Solar window shades

Roller shades complement both traditional and contemporary designs

Roller Shades offer a sleek modern look suitable for windows small and large. With a variety of unique patterns and textures, as well as varying opacity options, roller shades can create the perfect light for any space. Tube roller technology is utilized with options of an exposed or covered roller.

Roller shades, or roller blinds, function with a rotating tube at the top of the window the “rolls” to move the fabric up and down. A roller shade can have a standard roll, meaning the fabric falls off the back of the tube on the window side. A reverse roll, where-in the fabric falls off the front of the tube, is an option when going with a blackout fabric that might have a different color backing, or to avoid obstructions of the window like cranks and door handles.


Roller shades come with a variety of top and bottom treatments to match the aesthetic of any space and create the perfect look.

Fascia top treatment features a panel designed to conceal the front and top of the roller shade along with the mounting hardware. Fascia comes in a variety of designs including fabric covered or metal architectural finishes. Architectural fascia provides a clean and contemporary aesthetic for spaces that require a modern finish. Fabric-wrapped fascia is ideal for spaces with a more traditional design aesthetic, providing a finished look with fabric to match your shades. Fascia is designed to protect the roller shade fabric from long term dust and dirt collection.

Roller shades can also be recessed into a ceiling pocket, where-in the shade roller is hidden within drywall above the window. Pockets offer blackout capability for the window and a protective enclosure for the entire shade system.

While Roller Shades are made from a range of textiles to control a room’s light, often woven light filtering fabric or vinyl, Solar Shades are made from a mesh material screen designed to combat the sun and block UV rays without entirely blocking the view.

Shade Control

With manual and automated roller & solar shade options available, you can cover even those hard-to-reach windows with the ability to drop your shades with the press of a button.

With automated shading solutions, you can easily raise the shades to add sunlight or lower them to reduce heat buildup while adding instant privacy. Shades can be preset to automatically open and close during a specific time a year, effectively controlling sunlight to prevent harsh U/V rays from damaging expensive furnishings, floorings, or appliances. Or if you prefer, you can simply push a button to adjust them when you want, achieving the greatest beauty and efficiency in each room at all times.

SaaviHome integrates shades into our Home Automation Systems or can set them up individually. Energy savings down the road can pay for a shade investment while also helping the environment. It’s a win/win!

Fabric Options

Roller shades are available in a wide variety of fabric options and textures.

Sheer fabrics feature open weaves to preserve views to outside and filter sunlight. Sheer fabrics are ideal for rooms where complete privacy is not a necessity.

Translucent fabrics feature tighter weaves to transform harsh daylight into a soft, filtered glow. They provide increased privacy for spaces like bathrooms.

Blackout fabrics feature opaque materials that block light from entering the space. Ideal for bedrooms and media rooms in need of complete privacy and light control, blackout fabrics might have you sleeping better than ever!

Benefits and Key Features of Roller & Solar Shades

Roller & solar shades aren’t just admired for their sleek look and exclusive fabric and color possibilities. They offer a number of functional benefits as well, from light control to energy efficiency.

Light Control

With our extensive selection of light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics, roller & solar shades let you achieve just the right level of light in the room. The more sheer the fabric, the more light it lets in from the outside—although keep in mind that sheer fabrics don’t offer a lot of privacy. On the other hand, blackout roller shades block out nearly all the light and provide the most privacy. You could even go with Designer Banded Shades that have alternating sheer and solid fabric bands in the same shade for even more light control.

Multiple Opacities

Designer Screen fabrics are organized by openness factor. Openness is the weave density of screen fabric affecting the degree of visibility, privacy, glare and UV blockage. There are five options, ranging from most view/least privacy to minimal view/maximum privacy.

UV Protection and Energy Efficiency

Even on cloudy days, UV rays can do serious damage to your floors and furnishings. Designer Screen Shades will provide UV protection and energy efficiency while also maintaining your views to the outside.

Exclusive Fabrics and Colors

One of the biggest draws of roller & solar shades is the wide range of exclusive fabrics, colors, textures and styles. Design Studio™ Roller Shades, for instance, offer a collection of signature fabrics ranging from sophisticated silk blends to elegant velvets.

Top & Bottom Treatments

Customize these shades with top treatments that conceal the fabric roll for a clean look. A selection of bottom treatments includes fabric-wrapped options.

Finish the Shade

Headrail choices include either a small or large square cassette. You can also choose between a fabric-wrapped or unwrapped bottom rail.
