What are Draper roller shades?
Draper window shades have been used for years in homes and commercial applications alike to provide privacy, light control, and insulation from heat or cold. In fact, the large variety of standard fabrics is only the beginning when it comes to customizing the perfect draper shades for you and your windows.
Offered in a wide selection of fabrics and colors, Draper roller shades are available in widths up to 96", ensuring specialty size windows receive an aesthetically complementary solution no matter their dimensions. In addition to being pre configured into ready-made drapery hardware solutions for your windows, Draper roller shades are also available in a DIY version that simplifies installation and allows for a truly customized product.

With so many options available, it might be difficult to know where to start when choosing the perfect draper shade for your home or office. Thankfully, we've done most of the work for you with our vast collection of standard fabric types and colors that can be used as a starting point for your custom draper shade. For those who want more options, there are plenty of remote and wall controls with which to experiment and create a unique product for your home or office.
Draper roller shades come in several styles including single, double, and pleated offerings. The individual style of each draper blind is designed to accommodate the dimensions of the windows they'll be attached to with minimal disturbance to their design. Standard sizes such as 75-inch by 55-inch will fit most standard windows without trouble; however, custom sizes can also be created for an even more tailored fit.
This roller shade has a 1-inch header featuring an innovative snap-on design that allows you to see the outside after dark without exposing your home or business to the elements. The draper shade comes in a variety of colors for you to choose from, offering you best-in-class light control and insulation properties while providing maximum energy efficiency and value throughout its lifespan. It also features our patented lift system; we've combined the lifting cord with a spring tensioning device built inside each headbox to ensure years of service without breakage.
How do Draper shades work?
Draper Roller Shades are made of fabric that comes in a wide range of colors, textures, and patterns. Each shade is mounted to the top of the window frame with brackets. The roller sits inside each headbox to ensure years of service without breakage. A simple lift-and-lower mechanism is attached to each roller at the base. To operate the draper shades, you simply pull down on the handle located within reach of your stationary hand (typically at either side).
How do Draper Roller Shades work with your home or office decor?
The flexibility offered by draper shades allows for them to be placed almost anywhere in your home or office, even on awkward angles like bay windows! Their attractive appearance compliments any space, from the living room to the bedroom, and from the conference room to the boardroom.
Some draper shades have a silky appearance when viewed from outside your window. These kinds of draper shades are often referred to as "silk-like" or "soft light." While they offer a very different aesthetic than traditional roller shades, their attractive features make them well worth considering for windows in parts of your home or office where style is important.
Why You Should Use Draper Roller Shades?
They look great! Draper roller shades will provide an attractive accent to any area of your home or office space. They can even be used in rooms where appearance isn't too important because draper blinds will still optimize natural light while insulating you from heat or cold. Draper roller shades are even affordable enough to use in places where the expense isn't an issue, but the quality is!
They're easy to operate. If you plan on using your draper shades only occasionally, you have the option of getting a motorized system that allows for remote or automatic operation. Of course, if you want to be able to control the shade yourself without needing electricity, draper window blinds also come with manual devices. Either way, they're very easy to open and close whether you're at home or away.
Benefits of Using Draper Roller Shades
Very stylish shade
Whether you need draper shades throughout your entire home or just for one room, they'll look good anywhere because of their attractive fabrics.
There are many different types of Draper window treatment patterns and colors for you to choose from so you can match the decor in your room.
They're easy to use
Draper shades can be opened, closed, or tilted easily because they have sliders that allow you to adjust them with only one hand. Some styles also have cords if you want to operate them by pulling rather than using a slider.
Great energy savers
Thanks to the way they're made, draper roller shades are perfect for keeping out heat during hot months and cold during colder times of year thus saving you money on both heating and cooling costs.
