3 new design styles that are worth checking out.
- Blackout Shades
Room darkening, or black out shades, are must for new parents and shift workers. These utilitarian shades were lacking in style but provided a function that some people couldn’t live without. Until recently, the choice was limited. The designers at Holeroll have come up with a unique way to dress up a blackout shade. Tiny holes allow light to pass through, creating a night view of a city skyline. Chose from London or New York. The effect works both ways, depending on the light source.
Inexpensive roller shades have bounced back in popularity in the last years with updated materials, textures, and colors. They’re easy to hang and can be paired with other treatments for a layered effect.
Newer on the market are double roller shades. Double roller shades come with two independently operated shades that are stacked on top of one another. They come with both a light filtering shade and a room darkening shade, which allows you more control on light and privacy. The wide variety of colors and textures makes it easy to find something that will complement your décor.
- Zebra Shades
Sometimes referred to as Zebra Blinds, this window treatment is a hybrid of roller shades and venetian blinds. Made from a singular, looped fabric with solid and sheer stripes, they block light and provide privacy when lined up. Zebra shades are ideal for shorter window heights, and they look great in modern and minimalist decors.
