Cordless shades can really transform your bedtime and morning routines. The benefits of an extremely simple-to-use shade become obvious when you are operating the shade at regular times each day.

Cordless shades let you start and end your day with ease. When you’re tired and ready to go to bed, it’s nice to have shades that work so easily. And in the morning, getting your shades raised to let in the sun takes almost no effort at all.

Roller and cellular shades are ideal cordless shades for bedrooms.

Super Sunny Living Rooms

Living rooms can get overheated by the sun at certain times of the day. These rooms are well served by a cordless shade—particularly a cordless solar shade. When that late afternoon sun starts heating up the room, simply pull the shade down and you’re instantly protected.

While cellular, pleated, sheer, roller, and layered shades are all effective solutions for an overheating room, the solar shade is the king of sun control. The specially woven fabric is built to stand up to the heat and UV rays of the sun. And solar shades come in a variety of openness levels to give you some view to the outdoors. So, if you have an attractive view out your window but are combating bright sun, the solar shade can stop the sun while still maintaining a view.

Children's Bedrooms and Playrooms

Cordless shades have no hanging cords, making them perfect for children’s bedrooms and playrooms.

Many children are capable of operating cordless shades. A quick pull of a hem bar or bottom rail and the shade is down. No fumbling with cords or controls—just a pull. And raising the shade is even easier. Kids can lift the bottom rail from underneath and the shade goes back up.

Roller and solar shades come in a variety of colors, which makes it easy to find a fabric that suits a room designed for kids.

Cordless Makes Sense Almost Everywhere in the Home

There are very few places where cordless shades wouldn’t work. Windows that are high or hard to reach might need a solution such as a continuous-loop cord lift system. But most windows can be covered with a cordless shade that brings convenience to your routine.
