Shades vs. Blinds
Selecting the best type of window treatment for a given room can be difficult, especially with so many options to choose from. Ultimately, with most windows, you will want some form of light control as well as a more decorative touch.
Both blinds and shades offer the light control you need. However, shades are also a soft window treatment and give you more freedom in terms of design, textures, color, and pattern. Blinds, on the other hand, are all about controlling light, airflow, and privacy. Made from slats that hang either vertically or horizontally, you can lift them up and down, or side to side, as well as control the tilt of the slats themselves.

Types of Shades
These shades move up and down your window, with the main section running horizontally between the two sides of your frame. Typically, they are placed on tall, narrow windows.
These shades move from side to side on your window. These work well on wide windows and glass doors.
Roman shades are notable because they stack up evenly when opened. When closed, they are visibly smooth, without the ribbed appearance of traditional shades.
Honeycomb shades, also called cellular shades, feature crisp pleats. The fabric is bonded together to create honeycomb-shaped cells. We can customize the pleat size and light control options.
Roller shades are those that roll up when you tug on them. They can be made from a wide range of textiles and are typically used to control the amount of light entering a room.
Solar shades are similar to roller shades in that they roll open when tugged. However, they are made from a screen-like mesh that blocks UV rays while still letting you enjoy your view.
Blackout shades are designed to better control light entering the room. As such, they are idea for bedrooms or anywhere you need to minimize light, such as a home theater.
With sheer shades, the goal is to let light in while adding a bit of privacy and atmosphere to the space. These shades are best in public spaces of the home, such as the living room or dining room.
