Create beautiful effects with diffused natural light.
When trying to decide between blinds and window shades, here are some important distinctions:
- Blinds are usually made of harder material like wood or metal. Window Shades are made of a variety of materials but tend to be softer and are constructed with fabrics and woven fibers.
- Blinds control light by rotating the slats or by pulling them to the side or top. Shades can either be light blocking or sheer to give you more light-control options.
- Window Shades are made as a continuous roll but can be closed top to bottom, bottom to top or both.
