Custom Roller Shades and Solar Shades

Basic roller shades and solar shades from many stores are limited to specific sizes, colors, and fabrics, so the final result might not enhance your decor as you had hoped. At Andrew Norris & Associates in Richmond, VA, our talented design team customizes and installs these shades to your specifications. We have always been locally owned and operated, with a broad spectrum of custom fabrics that clients enjoy exploring. And most importantly, we provide expert advice and encourage them to take their time when making their selections.

Roller and solar shades are incredibly versatile and can make standalone statements or pair well with blinds or curtains. They also provide insulation that keeps homes more comfortable. We feature a wide selection of Hunter Douglas and Horizons window shades and will guide you through the entire purchasing process, from determining your goals to the final installation. And since we measure these shades on-site, the fit will be perfect.

Roller Shades Create a Refined Aesthetic

Timeless and elegant, roller shades are made from fabric and extend to windowsills to maximize view and light. They are attached to top ends or headrails and can be adjusted to different heights. When open, the material typically wraps around onto a rail and can lowered to your preference. Roller shades can also be customized with luxury fabrics, hit-tech control options, and upgrades. These are a few more reasons why we recommend roller shades to our clients:

Solar shades are similar to roller shades but have tightly woven, special fabric that maximizes UV protection. And even though they block the sun and absorb heat, your view is not obstructed. You can select from various colors, opacities, designs, and Beaded Loop or automated control. They have the same benefits as roller shades, plus a few more.
