Are Roller Shades a Good Investment?

Are Roller Shades a Good Investment

When it comes to choosing window treatments, many homeowners turn to roller shades due to their simplicity and versatility. Their clean profile complements any homeowners’ personal interior decorating style while providing their windows with a “finished” look. The more astute homeowner, however, might stop to think about the longevity of their choice. Window treatments are a commitment, after all, and they oftentimes affect the resale value of a house. So, considering all they do for a home, are roller shades a good investment?

Solar Protection

No one wants to be woken up every morning by the glare of the sunrise. Even worse is the heat that accompanies late afternoon sunshine as it streams through your windows. Most homeowners turn to window treatments to control the amount and quality of light that filters through their home, and few window treatments perform this task well as roller shades.

Unlike blinds and shutters, which allow harmful UV light to stream through gaps in their profiles, roller shades can completely block sunlight. This makes roller shades a good investment for bedrooms and home theaters, places where people want strict control over light levels. It also makes them perfect for energy-conscious homeowners, who can use roller shades to lower temperatures during the afternoon without adjusting the thermostat. 

Dust Protection

Any homeowner with allergies knows that window treatments harbor dust, pollen, and pet dander. This unfortunate tendency forces many people to choose between sacrificing window coverings or extending Florida’s allergy season year-round. Roller shades, however, offer homeowners an easy solution.

Unlike blinds or shutters, roller shades hang vertically. This allows them to resist dust accumulation. And unlike with curtains or drapes, most homeowners find that occasionally running their vacuum’s hose attachment across the roller shade’s surface provides all the cleaning they need. 

Investing in Roller Shades

For homeowners questioning whether roller shades are a good investment, the answer is clear. Between the elegant versatility of their design and the protection they offer from harmful UV light and dust particles, these shades can drastically improve the quality of life inside one’s home. They can also provide the finishing touch homebuyers appreciate, making them a good investment both for the immediate and distant future.
