Roller Shades/Solar Shades


Roller Shades/Solar Shades

Want to bring in Natural light while providing sun management? Solar roller shades are designed to provide high performing solutions to the sun’s harsh rays. Reduce solar heat gain, protect against damaging UV and improve the comfort of any interior space with designer solar fabrics. Modern options include motorization and other designer elements.  When choosing solar fabric, lighter colors reflect light and illuminate the interior while darker colors provide a clearer view to the outside, reduce glare and absorb light.  Darker shades are great for viewing computer and television screens.  

The openness factor let's you know how tight the weave or mesh is.  The tighter the weave, the less light that gets through.  A higher openness value indicates that more light and heat will be allowed through. 

 If you want to maximize your daytime view while having nighttime privacy, a dual shade is recommended.  Click here for roller shades on

Hunter Fan Parts

If you need replacement Hunter Fan parts, you have to start with the model number of your fan.  Although there are some extremely organized folks out there who know the model # of their 20 year old fan, most of us don't have a clue.  So here  is what you need to know about finding that model number.

There's a gold sticker on top of your fan's motor (the part that faces the ceiling once it is installed). Holding a mirror above the fan motor can help you read the numbers. It may also be found on the parts guide that was packed with your fan or on the box that contained your fan. You're looking for a 5-digit number and it sometimes has a suffix... i.e. 22345A

Once you have the model number, fill out this form and we will find and confirm the parts you need will work:

Local Project - Faux Wood Blinds

Our downtown area in Fort Smith, Arkansas is being revitalized.  We had the privilege of working with the developer, Rodney Ghan, on the Peachtree apartments.  Our 2½" faux wood blinds make a sophisticated statement in these modern apartments.
