Types of Shades and Sheers

  • Motorized Shades- These shades can revolutionize the shades in your home or office. They come in various types of motorized operating systems such as Platinum, PowerRise, PowerGlide, PowerTilt, and PowerView. South Kendall Interiors also offers a large selection of shades available with motorization such as Woven Woods, Roman Shades, Silhouette/Pirouette, Luminette, Honeycomb Shades, and Roller Shades.
  • Cellular Shades- These shades are also known as honeycomb shades as the side view of them has a honeycomb-shaped design. These shades provide great insulation and are therefore, incredibly energy efficient in summer and winter. They can be compressed tightly to maximize the window’s view. These shades are available in a large range of fabrics from sheer to opaque with hundreds of colors and textures to choose from as well. They are offered in various types such as Duette, the Alustra Collection, Duette Architella, Applause, and Pleated.
  • Woven Wood- These shades utilize unique fibers and textures to create a natural look that can filter out the sun. They are offered in various styles such as Provenance, which is hand-woven and the Alustra Collection, which offers exclusive fabrics and hardware.
  • Roman Shades- These shades have soft, sculpted pleats that fold flat when raised. They have both light-filtering and room-darkening options. These shades also come in a large selection of fabrics, colors, and types such as Vignette, Solera, Design Studio, and the Alustra Collection.
  • Roller Shades- These shades can be constructed from a large range of sturdy and beautiful fabrics and types such as Designer Roller Shades, Designer Screen Shades, and the Alustra Collection. They can provide complete privacy when closed and when they are open, virtually disappear. These shades are associated with easy functionality and simplicity.
  • Sheers- The sheers, Luminette, Pirouette, Silhouette, and Nantucket have endless light-control possibilities with the ultimate means for privacy. Sheers come in a large variety of sheer and drapery-like fabrics.
