Roller Shades

Blinds & Designs of Florida provides custom window shades for residential and commercial customers in the Sarasota area. All our shades are custom-made to complement your style and available with many options to choose from.

Roller Shades

Combining practicality and style is the roller shade specialty. The minimal yet highly effective design includes a roller at the top of the window with material that can be unrolled for privacy, view, and light control. In addition to being highly efficient, roller shades also provide a beautiful backdrop that adds depth, dimension, and drama to any room. Almost any type of fabric or vinyl cloth can be used within an impressive range of stunning colors, styles, and textures. Traditional fabrics exude timeless elegance and luxury. Natural fabrics look like grass cloth with aspects comparable to beautiful woven woods. Bold color fabrics add energy and vibrancy while neutral color fabrics create a calming, balancing effect. Whether you want slightly more privacy or to block out all light, roller shades also offer room darkening and blackout fabric.

When needing to cover sliding glass doors or very large windows in the same room with roller shades, a panel track is a great solution. By using the same fabric as the roller shade, the panel track creates a neat and cohesive look in any room or throughout the entire house. If you are not familiar with a panel track, please ask your Blinds & Designs designer.


Technology gives roller shades an exceptional ease of movement

They can elevate with either a cordless system or a continuous cord loop, allowing you to easily position the fabric at any level. With the press of a button, motorized rollers have an unlimited range of motion that can be operated easily from across the room. They also provide a clean appearance that eliminates long, troublesome cords from hanging down and interfering with your view. Modern designs also offer the option of enclosing the roller in a cassette, fascia, or valance to create a completed look at the top of the shade. A unique hem or streamline hem bar that is color-coordinated completes the contemporary or classic look at the bottom.

Automated Shades

Today, automation is an integral part of how we interact with the world. It is the way of the future that now extends to window coverings. Automated blinds and shades combine style, convenience, and safety for the perfect solution to hard-to-reach windows. Or maybe you want to save time because you have multiple window coverings that you’d like to raise or lower all at once. Even if you just prefer luxury and the ease of operation that atomization provides, your life will become so much easier!

Simple to maintain, automated blinds and shades are the most convenient way to regulate sunlight and privacy. You can adjust your window coverings to the desired height with a remote, wireless wall switch, smartphone, or tablet. With the quick push of a button or flip of a switch, you can easily control your blinds or shades from across the room. No more leaning, reaching over the couch or climbing up a step ladder to grab hazardous cords or wands. Now, children and pets stay safe as well.


Huge Selection of Motorized Options

At Blinds & Designs of Florida, we strive to be the leader in automation by offering a huge selection of motorized options with the latest and greatest technology. From timers to sun sensors, we incorporate the most up-to-date equipment to keep your home insulated and protected when you are at work or on vacation. Timers allow you to program your window coverings to open and close at specific times while sensors signal them to close when the sun is at its brightest. These features provide significant savings in energy costs and keep fabrics, rugs, upholstery, and artwork from fading. We can even easily integrate new technology to work alongside an existing system.

The type of automation depends on what type of window treatment you prefer. With shades, a motorized lift is used to raise or lower the entire shade. Ask your Blinds & Designs of Florida designer about the top-down / bottom-up feature that lets you open your shades from the top and the bottom, allowing you to create the perfect balance of natural light and privacy. If blinds are more your style, motorized tilt is used to tilt the slats or vanes open or closed. Cellular, pleated, roman, roller and solar shades use motorized lift while vertical, wood, and faux wood blinds use motorized tilt.
