Why should you choose Twist™ Shades over Normal Regular Curtains
27 May 2022
When it comes to window shades, curtains and roller blinds are two of the most popular options. While you can choose from a wide variety of colours, patterns and textures for your curtains, the TwistTM Shades offer a lot more versatility. They come in a wide range of colours, styles and designs, which makes them an excellent choice for almost any room in your home. 

Curtains are perfect for adding a touch of elegance and sophistication to any room, but they also have their limitations. For instance, they will not be able to offer privacy when closed or block out sunlight during the day. This is where TwistTM  Shades come into play. Roller blinds are made up of slats that can be adjusted to cover up windows completely or partially based on your requirement. They also allow you to adjust their position easily by using a corded mechanism or remote control (in case you have electric blinds).

Why TwistTM Shades ?

TwistTM Shades are an excellent choice for people who are looking for a clean and modern look. They come in a variety of colours, sizes and materials, so there is something that will suit every style and budget. They can be used as a decorative element in your living room, dining room or bedroom.

As compared to curtains, TwistTM  Shades are more durable and offer better value for money. The fabric used for making them is usually thicker than the one used for curtains, which means they will last longer without fading or fraying. 

Another advantage of TwistTM Shades is that they don't require any special hardware or tools to install them on your windows. You just have to hang them from the top rod with the help of brackets and screws provided by the manufacturer. 

TwistTM  Shades also offer better privacy than curtains because they are able to block out more light than normal regular curtains do; however, this depends on the type of material used in manufacturing them.
