Roller Shades Supply & Installation in Toronto

Roller Shades

No matter how much window treatments have evolved — and continue to change along with emerging interior design trends — some designs are more classic than others. These include the well-loved, vintage-vibe roller shades. But with modern upgrades, there isn’t anything vintage — and outdated — with these next-generation versions.

Roller shades were loved for a time and eventually pushed aside as new styles and functionalities emerged. Still, with major design upgrades, we see lots of reasons to return to this old favourite. We can’t deny the versatility of these roll-up blinds that make them a perfect fit in virtually any environment.

Roller Shades: The Basics

Roll-up blinds, plastic roller blinds, or however you call them, you’ve definitely seen this classic window treatment virtually anywhere. Now with a contemporary upgrade, everyone’s favourite shades just got a whole lot more functional and trendy.

With a variety of fabrics, colours, and custom options, roller shades pack the same core versatility with the added perks of cost savings, quick installation, and low maintenance. All you need to do is roll them up — or down — and the fabric emerges or hides inside the tube for a balance of natural light and privacy.

Contemporary Style

Pull on the tab and voila — see the outdoors or block light and make any room private, or at least that’s what everyone thinks when they see roller shades. But it’s not just like that anymore.

Crafted with contemporary styles and functionalities, modern roller shades are no longer built with stiff, dull fabric with little to no style. With a wide range of materials now available for these plastic roller blinds, they’re anything but ordinary. Choose anywhere between bright, trendy colours and interesting prints to accentuate your windows.

Seamless Function

Gone are the days of blinds getting stuck — modern roller shades are built to last and easy to use. Modern hardware upgrades have allowed for smoother and sturdier operation, with motorized options available, so you won’t even have to pull on tabs manually and risk the shades getting stuck. Enjoy the utmost convenience and seamless operation in every room.

Stay Warm and Cozy

Living in Canada means dealing with seasonal highs and lows, and while you can’t control outside temperatures, you should be able to count on staying cozy year-round indoors. Roller shades can help with that.

Before you crank up the heater or the AC, consider a greener solution with these insulated window treatments. With thick fabric options available and secure mounting against the window frame, roller shades can cover cracks and small gaps where air can enter and escape, and disturb the otherwise cozy atmosphere in your home. Save on energy expenses and keep comfortable year-round with this eco-friendly insulation.


Custom options such as motorization make these roll-up blinds a family-friendly option since they eliminate the risk of playful and curious kids choking on them. Whether you’re considering using roller shades all over your house or just in a few rooms, think about this family-friendly benefit for safety and peace of mind.

Budget Savings

The biggest — and most unbeatable — perk of roller shades is the savings they come with. Built to last even on a budget, roller shades are every bit as elegant and stylish, but without the price tag. These window treatments are greatly affordable in Toronto, offering a perfect balance between style, function, and minimal maintenance. But the biggest benefit of them all is that at Window Blinds Direct, we offer roller shades directly from the factory — that means affordable, budget-friendly pricing.

We have used this company in both our homes. Excellent customer service and love our shutters. They are professional and great craftsmanship. I had a tricky window and their recommendations and the end result were perfect! We would use them again.
Anne Hufmman
Product is wonderful and I wish we had installed the blinds sooner. The whole experience from the measurements to the installation was professional, friendly and extremely well done. This will be my go to company for future blinds.

I got new automated shades in my condo in Toronto downtown - excellent work done by Michael / Charles at a fair price. Everything done on the schedule, no headaches. I highly recommend Windows Blind Direct
Esme Pombo
First time that I contacted this company, but I was very happy with them. I would recommend this company for any blind job, they did a fenominal job, and were quick.
Irene Coelho
Amazing experience, after 5 years needed batteries and minor adjustments to exiting blinds and they helped . Thank you for your great customer service. Especially Michael
Deirdre McMurdy
This is the second time we've worked with Window Blinds Direct - which a testament in itself. Michael and his team are very responsive and engaged. They do through assessment of the job, provide honest feedback on the best options, and then provide exceptional results. We could not be more delighted with both the California shutters and the shades they have installed in our home. Highly recommend!
I'm very happy with the custom blinds I ordered over 3 years ago. Recently I decided to change one window from light-filtering to blackout and Michael was very responsive over email. Within a month of my initial email Charles installed the new blackout blinds, which is very impressive considering it's a custom order.
