Whether you’re seeking the drama and fashion appeal of fine fabric, or the rich texture of woven wood blinds, you’ll find a budget-wise, easy-care solution in RK Window Fashions roller shades. To multiply your design options, styles come in the wide array of easy-care materials. Our roller shades are an affordable solution whether you’re re-doing one window or a whole home, plus they look terrific under draperies so it’s simple to create a designer-caliber layered treatment. Automated or motorized shades are very popular for those large windows, hard to reach, or transom windows – it has never been more affordable! Rechargeable battery powered and solar rechargeable batteries make automated shades easier to install without any wiring in the walls – without an electrician!
Duo-shades expand the versatility of this classic window covering by layering two shades one in front of the other. Room darkening, sheer, solar screen, woven textured, privacy fabrics are choices for either shade. A Roman style shade can be layered over a roller shade too. Our exclusive system can be automated for the ultimate convenience.
Fabric Shades make for endless possibilities, like classic fabric roman shades for a soft, elegant look, or forward fold fabric window shades for a textured touch of class. Make the mood refined or relaxed – your choice.
Personalize your window shades even more with decorative details and operational upgrades. Modern technology has created more options in fabric shades. We now have liners to eliminate the visible cords from outside your home for very visible windows and child safety. Enhanced energy control is also possible with cellular constructed fabric shades. Almost perfect, uniform pleating for an extreme tailored look is now possible too! All easily controlled via an iPhone or Android app or the convenient push of a button or a timed based schedule.
Honeycomb Cellular Shades are one of the best insulating window coverings, offering superior energy savings all year long. Choose them for their sleek, modern style and unsurpassed quality; our cellular honeycomb cellular shades have the look and feel of fabric – even linenlike woven patterns - and even coloration that won't fade in full-sun locations. Top and bottom rails can be wrapped in your cellular shade’s fabric, with white on the back for uniform street side appearance. The hexagonal or honeycomb cell shape of these cellular window coverings traps air within its insulating layer between your room and the outdoors, so you’ll enjoy lower cooling bills in summer, less furnace use in winter.
Vertical sliding honeycomb shades combine the insulation benefits plus the beauty of cellular shades in a “drapery” or vertical format – ideal for Arcadia or sliding doors and large expanses of glass up to 31 feet wide.
Simple battery lift operating systems can quietly lift your shades upon command. Larger shades up to 14 ½ feet or coupled shades up to 16 feet can be motorized too. Remote control options are via iOS – iPhone/iPad – or Android apps, Alexa, Hey Google, or Siri voice controls, handheld or wall mounted wireless remote controls, or simple wired pendants or switches.
Outdoor Patio Solar Shades make patios, decks, porches, pergolas, lanais and gazebos much more comfortable. Designed to block the sun's heat and glare and reduce fading, the woven fabric also allows some air to pass though for ventilation. Outdoor shades stop more heat than interior ones as they effectively stop the sun’s hot rays before they reach your windows. They can save up to 30% in your air conditioning costs.
Transparent solar screen shades provide daytime privacy with full unencumbered views outward. Darker colors provide a better view over lighter colors. Outdoor shades with tighter weaves extend our mild seasons by protecting outside areas from cooler breezes and also provide shelter for plants. Add a patio heater and stay nice and cozy in cooler evening hours extending your patio’s usefulness year round.
Installing an outdoor sun shade can significantly reduce cooling costs inside your home and create a pleasant atmosphere for your patio, deck or sunroom. Outdoor shades and outdoor blinds are made with solar screen fabric, which stops the sun's heat before it strikes your window, reducing heat transfer and keeping your home or business cooler. They are ideal for patios, sun-struck windows, verandas, garage door openings, patio covers, skylights, outdoor restaurant dining/patio areas, screen room enclosures, and large sliding glass doors.
Our select line of motorized retractable shades offers an ideal solution to help you with your glaring sun issues for spans greater than 40 feet wide in a seamless solar patio shade. Made from the highest quality materials, these shades can be mounted in locations around your home to stop up to 99% of the solar heat rays and provide up to 100% shade with just the touch of a button! You'll still enjoy almost total non-glare visibility from the inside while providing a cool and comfortable environment for you and your family to enjoy.
Side cable guides control the shade’s bottom bar’s movements during operation and light breezes. Our patented Shy Zip track is a side retention system that maintains the shade’s position during the most intense winds. Developed for Japan's 200mph bullet trains, the tension system is a proven method of locking the fabric into the side channels and acts like shock absorbers to eliminate any fabric stress during the most windy days. As the biggest shades can act like very large sails, this is a very popular option to our patio shades. A side benefit of the Shy Zip Track is it can create an insect free area. Installing retractable shades is an effective and easy way to reduce your carbon foot print.
Today's home builders and architects are becoming bolder and more visually creative with their designs and use of space. Adding to the home's complexity is unusually shaped windows. Your home's window shape and size is a function of design to the outside of the home, not the inside. Sometimes that leaves us with a challenging window shape or size to cover.
Not to worry, RK Window Fashions has been covering the most challenging window shapes for over 40 years. Our experience offers you a path to avoiding less than ideal treatments or methods others might employ. Our extensive learning curve is to your benefit.
Whether your window is angled, arched, bowed, octagon, or just expansive, we know how to cover it efficiently and cost effectively. Honeycomb cellular shades, Shadings, Roller Shades, Roman shades, Woven natural shades, Pleated shades, Wood blinds, Mini-blinds, Shutters, Draperies are all products to be considered for your project.
Hunter Douglas has been at the forefront of creating beautiful, innovative fabrics to use on their entire line of window treatments, helping them become the industry leader for over 30 years.
Hunter Douglas has transformed the industry with unique window treatment operating systems that make fashion very easy to use and child safe!
Hunter Douglas products are designed to offer a range of light control and privacy options with a broad selection of fabrics and materials, in a range of opacities from sheer to room darkening to opaque.
Automated remote control blinds are no longer a rarity or budget busting. It is more unusual for us not to motorize our shades anymore. Low voltage wired and wireless remote controls with batteries, rechargeable batteries, or power supplies are extremely affordable and convenient. For larger shades, heavy duty 110 volt wired motors are preferable.
Some windows almost require remote control operation. Windows behind bathtubs are a perfect example. Climbing into the tub or scrambling up on to the tub surround to lift or operate a shade is unsafe and cumbersome. Clearstory or transom windows are another example of difficult to operate manual window treatments. Of course, the "cool" or "wow" factor of a push button operation of your new window coverings is a bonus. Telling Alexa, Hey Google, or Siri to open or close your window treatments will put a smile on anyone's face.
Soft fabric fashions, such as, Draperies and Roman Shades can all be motorized. Drapery motors can be added to almost any drapery rod, in addition to, specialized motorized drapery tracks with integrated motors. The integrated motors utilize high-performance belts that move large heavy blackout lined draperies quietly and smoothly. These tracks can be decorated with wood or metal fascias or left alone for a simple discrete look. They can fit straight, multi angled, or curved walls. We can even motorize fabric shades on curved windows!
Not only is RK Window Fashions a certified Somfy Platinum Expert, we also service BTX, SM Automatic, Rolotrol, Simplicity, Bofu, Rollease, and Timber Blinds. We are very well versed in the automation field and can integrate your motorized shades with just about any Home Automation System.
Solar Sun Screen Shades protect and shade areas for sun and insect control. Shading glass windows from the sun is one of the most cost effective methods of reducing your cooling costs. Designed to block the sun's heat and glare and reduce fading, the woven fabric also allows some air to pass though for ventilation. Outdoor solar sunscreens stop more heat than interior applications as they effectively stop the sun’s hot rays before they reach your windows. They can save up to 30% in your air conditioning costs.
Each spring as the sun bears down on your home, your comfort level begins to take a beating. The harsh sun makes living in the desert a challenge. Our air conditioning costs rise. The sun’s glare begins to create eye strain, glare on our tv screens, and damage our precious interior furnishings. Solar Sunscreens block up to 95% of the harmful sun’s ray without impacting much of your view to the outside. Blocking the sun from reaching your window’s glass or the inside your home can save up to 25-30% of your cooling costs. Solar Sunscreens are one of the most affordable methods of shading your windows. The area’s utility companies recommend them and believe in them so much they generally offer rebates to subsidize their cost.
They are ideal for south, east, and west exposures. Patios, sun-struck windows, verandas, patio covers, skylights, screen room enclosures, and large sliding glass doors are our most common applications.
