What Is a Roller Blind? Reviving a Classic Window Treatment, Boise, ID

With Ezze Shutters and Blinds, when it comes to window treatments like blinds,shades, and shutters, you can't get much more classic than the reliable roller shade.

Invented sometime in the 1700s with a roller so weak that it was anchored at the bottom of the window frame while a hook at the end of the fabric attached to the top of the window frame when pulled up in use, this rudimentary device has morphed into the modern roller shades we enjoy today (Source).

Modern roller shades typically have the roller blind mechanism at the top of the window frame and have easy-to-pull, simple locking, and quick disconnect mechanisms that make rollers much more attractive to today's homeowner. The newer mechanisms are also safer for children and pets. On top of their improved functionality, rollers remain a fantastic option for those looking to use fabric in a room's window treatments without having to use curtains or drapes.

Ezze Shutters and Blinds has a variety of roller shades to choose from, from custom-fit rollers to match any window to common shapes with unique patterns to bring personality to your home.
