Banded and Roller Shades – Unique and on Trend

Many manufacturers make both banded and roller shades. But, at Dodds Interiors, we look beyond just the fabrics and colours. We look at the quality of the fabrics and components, the types of lifting systems used, and the options for the hardware and rails. We look at the whole picture, which has made us one of the most reliable blind providers in Mississauga and the GTA's most loved window dressers! Whether it's sunscreen to stop the damaging rays of the sun or a horizontal application needed for privacy, we carry them all.

Banded and roller shades use a combination of soft sheer and semi-opaque fabric. You can control the shade up or down to allow your preferred amount of light into your rooms while blocking the heat, dust and UV radiation from outside. Call us now, or stop by our showroom to see our entire collection today!

Fabric and Soft Shades - Beauty and Design

Add a delicate touch of fabric to your home with the style of a soft shade. There are so many styles to choose from! Perhaps you are drawn to the classic Hunter Douglas Silhouette™, or a custom Roman shade suits you better. If the hot summer months or the cold Canadian winters are causing your energy bills to soar, cellular shades may help solve the issue. Whatever your needs are, we have the solution. With years of experience and knowledge in dressing windows of all types, we at Dodds Interiors will help you make the right choice! Read our blogs to know more.

Benefits of Installing Shades in Mississauga

Discover the numerous advantages of installing shades in your Mississauga home or office:

 

  • Light Management: Shades offer adjustable light control, allowing you to regulate the amount of natural light entering your space to create a comfortable ambiance while protecting your interior from harmful UV rays.
     

  • Privacy Enhancement: Enhance privacy by adjusting shades to block unwanted views from outside without sacrificing natural light, providing peace of mind for you and your family.
     

  • Energy Efficiency: Improve energy efficiency by insulating windows with shades, reducing heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter, and lowering heating and cooling costs.
     

  • Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal: Elevate the aesthetic appeal of your space with a wide range of shade styles, fabrics, colours, and patterns to complement your interior decor and enhance visual appeal.
     

  • UV Shielding: Protect furniture, flooring, and artwork from fading and damage caused by prolonged exposure to UV radiation with UV-blocking shades, preserving the beauty and longevity of your interior furnishings.

Maintenance and Care Tips for Shades

Ensure the longevity and performance of your shades with these maintenance and care tips:

 

  • Regular cleaning: Dust shades regularly with a feather duster or soft cloth to remove surface dust and debris. Use a gentle vacuum cleaner attachment or spot clean with a mild detergent and water solution for deeper cleaning.
     

  • Avoid excessive moisture: Minimize exposure to moisture, especially for fabric shades, as excessive humidity can cause mould, mildew, and fabric damage. Use caution when cleaning and ensure shades are fully dry before raising them.
     

  • Inspect for damage: Inspect shades for signs of wear and tear, such as frayed cords, broken components, or loose fittings. Address any issues promptly to prevent further damage and ensure smooth operation.
     

  • Protect from sunlight: Extend the lifespan of your shades by protecting them from direct sunlight and UV radiation. Consider using window treatments or UV-blocking films to reduce sun exposure and minimize fading of shade fabrics.
     

  • Professional maintenance: Consult an experienced window treatment service for complex issues or extensive damage for expert assessment and repairs. Professional maintenance ensures proper functioning and prolongs the life of your shades.
