Roller Shades · Roman Shades · Panel Track

Window shades have come a long way from grandma’s roller shade! Today, optional operating systems add flexibility while motorization offers functionality and light control with functional flair.

Genesis’ signature feature is our extensive array of fashionable colors, textures, and opacities, making it easy for you to create a look that is uniquely yours. So let’s dive in and see what Genesis has to offer!

PANEL TRACK

Our Panel Track system is a modern alternative to vertical blinds and features wide fabric panels. Use a cord or wand control to slide from side-to-side as a perfect solution for patio doors, large windows, or room dividers.

CHILD SAFETY

To ensure safety for your children (and pets), we encourage you to install only cordless window coverings in rooms where young children play and sleep. Genesis 101: What You Need to Know - Lafayette and Home blog by Lafayette Interior Fashions

Child safety is our top priority so we created the TLC™ child safe cord sleeve system as the standard for all our roman shades. For additional child safety, our CareRING™ Cordless lift system is recommended as another option.

OPENNESS AND OPACITY

Genesis 101: What You Need to Know - Lafayette and Home blog by Lafayette Interior Fashions

The amount and quality of light entering a room affect the atmosphere and functionality. Genesis offers fabrics with opacities ranging from sheer to complete blackout.

Screen shades address the quality of light control and privacy in a slightly different manner. In screen fabrics, the view-through and light control are a function of the density of the weave. Openness and color then combine to transform light control, privacy, glare resistance, and visibility.

ENERGY EFFICIENT / ECO-FRIENDLY

Many Genesis fabrics are certified for their energy efficiency, air quality safety, and use of recycled materials. Mermet’s E Screen with KOOLBLACK™ Technology incorporates both superior heat and glare control properties into dark screen fabrics. This breakthrough fabric offers many benefits including:

  • lower cooling costs,
  • superior view-through,
  • glare control,
  • more comfortable environments, and
  • better aesthetics.
