Difference between Blinds and Shades
Shoppers often group shades together with blinds and consider them one and the same, though there is a difference. A window shade is a continuous piece of material, either fabric, woven natural materials or manufactured synthetic material. Window shade controls allow the shade material to be moved to either cover or uncover a window and control light and privacy. Blinds have slats, long thin pieces of material to block light, which are either vertically or horizontally stacked and held together with cords or cloth tapes. This is the shades section of the Blindsgalore site and contains some general information on the different types of window shades available.
How They Work
While traditional cords are still available, nearly every type of shade is available with at least one cordless option. Basic cordless window shades are spring loaded to support their own weight and simply operate by pressing up or down. Top down bottom up shades also operate by touch, where both the top and bottom are moveable. For real convenience or accessibility needs, motorized and remote control options are available.
Window shades are capable of providing a wide range of light control, from subtle light filtering to total blackout according to the fabric you choose. Opaque fabrics will darken a room while sheer fabrics will allow light to filter through the shade. Some window shades also offer the ability to add a blackout liner for complete light blockage, commonly used to improve sleep or enhance the cinema effect of a media room.
