Although I work for Select Blinds in the accounting department, I have become somewhat familiar with the options and features offered on the various blinds and shades we sell. With a recent home construction project in the works, I have been considering redecorating and upgrading multiple items. One of those items is our blinds.
With the many offerings from Select Blinds, it has been a difficult, yet fun, task to determine my favorite product. Initially, I was a huge fan of the trendy Roman shades, but as time has passed, I concluded that Roller Shades are a better product for many reasons. The biggest Roller Shade benefit is the cost difference as well as what you get for that cost. The price point for Roller Shades is exceptionally lower than Roman Shades with practically the same functionality.
At the end of the day, one Roller Shade in particular stands out: The Good Housekeeping Room Darkening Roller Shade. With neutral colors and various textures, this product not only offers something for everyone, but is also aesthetically pleasing. Although the looks of a blind/ shade are important to me, I am most interested in the function and options accompanying it. I am going to be frank and admit that my husband and I are lazy people who despise sunlight. We can’t be bothered to get up from the couch to close our shades to eliminate the sunlight glare.
Additionally, we are animal lovers who include 3 dogs and 1 cat as part of our family. The GH Room Darkening Roller Shades are perfect for us in that they offer motorization, an option not found with most shades. This helps us continue our lazy demeanor and also gives us peace of mind that our pets will not get tangled in cords. What’s more, when closed, these shades offer a 5 out of 5 privacy factor, meaning that no light gets in or out. For me, this shade truly is a shining example of a product that offers both form and function.
