Blinds vs. Shades?

Are you looking for cheap, high-quality window blinds and shades without the fuss? If so, you've come to the right place. But with so many window covering products on offer, what's best for you - blinds or shades? Let us help you work it all out...

Advantages of Blinds

Traditionally, blinds are comprised of vanes or slats, and the window covering can be raised and lowered or pulled across a window space. Blinds are easily controlled by a manual pull cord - giving you more flexibility when it comes to letting light in to your property while protecting your floors and furnishings. Our blinds have slats that close tightly to ensure your privacy at all times. In fact, you'll be able to control the amount of light that enters the room just by adjusting or tilting the blinds at a different angle. Sounds easy, right? Well, it is! Our blinds are available in a wide range of styles and materials, so you'll be able to choose a product that compliments the rest of your interior space. Our Faux Wood blinds and Basswood blinds are among our most popular, and bring traditional, natural elements into your home. Have large window spaces that you need to cover? No problem – consider one of our beautiful Vertical blinds in decorative PVC or our Fabric Vertical blinds. Alternatively, for your small bathroom and kitchen windows consider aluminum Mini Blinds.

Advantages of Shades

On the other hand, Shades comprise material either in the form of a Roller Shade, Cellular Shade or Roman Shade, which is used to cover a window. Shades stack neatly at the top of the window when drawn up providing maximum, unobstructed views. For an even cleaner look, consider a Cordless Shade, which also promotes child safety. Just like blinds, you'll have a wealth of designs to choose from, including roller shades (which are easy to use) and cellular shades - which trap hot and cold air, making them extremely energy efficient and saving you money on your heating bills.
