Blinds, Shades...What’s the Difference?
Many people use the word “blinds” to describe every type of window covering. But, when you begin selecting which blinds will be best for YOUR home, you’ll see–there are many types.
Specifically, window blinds have slats that you adjust for light control. Window shades use fabrics and materials to cover your windows.
How You Know Which Blinds...
If it’s blinds you want, you’ll have to determine the material. Wood blinds, faux wood and aluminum are all options. Depending on your style and budget, you may be choosing between wood and faux wood blinds. They both offer classic styling and invaluable light control.
Aluminum offers contemporary appeal. The metals come in a variety of sheens and can offer stunning style. They also handle wear and tear with bounce back technology. Regardless of which blinds you select for style, today’s function is incredible. There is even tilt control with motorized blinds.
You Really Want Shades.
Maybe you’ve decided you want shades instead. The classics–like roller shades, roman shades and cellular shades–are strong choices, especially with modern innovation.
Newer in the window coverings market are sheer shades, offering sheer fabrics that pull in natural light while reducing glare. This results in a beautiful atmosphere with controlled lighting. Also available with motorization, shades can raise or lower from across the couch–or across the country with your favorite device.
