Roller Shades

Roller Shades from Villa Blind and shutter just got a make-over.  The 2016 Soluna Roller shades from Norman Window Fashions are now available.  Let me tell you a little about them.

First of all, choosing the right shade from a vast collection of fabrics and colors just got easier.  The new color books are organized into five fabrics, including Sheer, Natural, Designer, Black out and Solar screens.  This allows for opacity and light control and fabric choices in groups of color books.

And the lift systems are your next choice, choose from a continuous cord lift (a beaded chain), a cordless lift or a Motorized lift.  Pretty simple.

Dual shades are now available, like two shades in one, dual shades feature one shade behind the other allowing for ultimate light and privacy control.

Coupled shades are great for  side by side windows.  Couple shades feature two shades operated by one control..

Available Fascia Options:  Square Fascia, Curved Fascia, Fabric Valance and Wood Valance.

New for 2016 are Norman’s new Light Guard, designer strip installed on the window side to block ot light, great idea.

We think these new Roller shades, called the Soluna Roller shades will be a big hit.  Invite a Villa Designer over for a test drive, and put some coffee on.




Irvine Window Coverings

Irvine window coverings this week are in the shades group , and are Sheers.  Sheers are well know in the HunterDouglas Brand as Silhouettes.  We also carry sheers from Comfortex and J.C. Window Fashions.  In this Job of the Week video we are showing off the J.C Sheers.

The design aspect that make sheers so popular are the fabric vanes.  These vanes come in 2 and three inch widths, and can be light filtering or room darkening.  Their light weight makes them great for large widows.  Ever try pulling up a large, wide blind, the weight makes it very difficult.

Invite a Villa Designer over for a Free Estimate for all your window coverings needs.

If you have a lot of heat or bright sun light entering your home, we have the solution for you.

Roman and Roller Shades are the solution.  We have posted one of our many Job of the Week Videos. This week we are showing how a Roller shade can block unwanted heat and light while still allowing a nice view to the rear yard.  Norman makes one of the best solar shades in the industry.  The percentage of light filtering runs from 0 percent, which is a solid material to 14 percent, which will allow a nice view through to your outside.

Villa’s Elance Sliding Panels from Horizon

Sliding Panels  are great for Patio doors.  Have a few  Patio Doors in your Southern California home?  Most of us do.  We still offer nice Vertical Blinds, but why not try something  a little more modern.  Take a look at the Elance  Sliding Panels from Horizon Window Fashions pictured below as well as on our gallery..  See Elance Photo Gallery

The fabrics are from the Shades of Elegance collections also used in their Roller and Roman shades, so you can easily match the sliding panels to horizontal shades on windows quite nicely.  Here are a few photos of each application. See the Pattern Collection

Roman Shades in Rancho Santa Margarita

Roman Shades

Today we installed 17 Roman Shades in a beautiful house in Rancho Santa Margarita. We went to Norman Window Fashions for their great color selection, price point and then felt like the client really got a bonus.

Norman has an incredible Roman Shade feature, a cordless automated lift system called AeroLite, this very nifty automatic lift will, with a gentle downward pull triggers a slow raise of the shade. The handle is on the back. See the photo below. It’s got a beautiful lining, so it looks good from the outside as well. Comes in hobbled, which they call a soft fold.

If you call us, we will come to your house for free and show it to you!

Thank you for your interest in Villa.
