Control Options for Roller Shades

Q: I'm looking to install roller shades in my bedroom. Can you tell me the different types of control options available on these types of shades?

A: Absolutely. Roller shades come in cordless and spring lift systems, cordloop controls, and motorized or electronic control systems. Cordless, or spring lift systems use a retractable feature that eliminates all cords from the system. It's easy to use, too. Just pull down the shade with your hand (and you can even get a decorative pull to make it even more unique!) and it stays in place. Gently pull again and the roller shade rolls back onto the roll.

Cordloop controls, on the other hand, allow you to raise and lower your shades using a continuous loop of cord. The constant length of cord is great for control and safety since there are no long strings or cords for small hands, or small pets, to play with.

Better yet, go motorized! Roller shades, like lots of other window shades and blinds, come with a remote control option. This way you can raise and lower your shades from the comfort of your bed. What better way to control your bedroom light than to relax and press a button!
