What Is The Difference Between A Reverse And A Standard Roll?

If you want to roll with us, you’re going to need to know a thing or two about roller shades. Most importantly, I’m talking about reverse and standard rolls – the two ways you can hang the fabric from the top of your shade.

With a standard roll, your fabric will lay flat against your window and raise up onto the top bar from behind when the shade is raised. This may cause the top fabric roll to stick out further from your window, but it also will create better light coverage.

Your other option is called a reverse roll. With this style, the shade fabric will wrap over the top roll and hang in front of your window like a waterfall. As you might imagine, this will create a bigger light gap, because the fabric isn’t technically touching your window, but you’ll get a cleaner, designer look. Whichever style you choose, your roller shades will effortlessly glide up and down your window.
