What Is The Difference Between Blinds and Shades?
Many people find the difference between blinds and shades to be confusing. Although blinds and shades are similar because they are both window treatments and used to control the quantity of incoming light, there are several important difference between the two. Blinds use slats, louvers or vanes and are made up of multiple pieces. Shade Works Wood Blinds and Vertical Blinds fall into the blinds category. Blinds allow you to control the amount of light entering into your room via the opening or closing of the slats, louvers or vanes.
