Blackout Material Fabrics: Vertical Blinds Vs Roller Shades – Pasay City Installation
Many people don’t fully understand the difference between blinds and shades. Most consider it as just the same thing with different names. Both blinds and shades are window treatments for all kinds of windows; however they describe two different qualities of window coverings.
Blinds is a window treatment that’s composed of horizontal or vertical slats that can be adjusted to control the amount of sunlight and air allowed in a room. Wood, Faux Wood, Mini Blinds and Vertical Blinds are the most popular blinds and are usually made of wood, aluminum, bamboo and PVC materials. However, shades do not have slats like blinds. In fact shades are considered as soft window treatments which are made of fabrics or woven woods that rolled up and down. It can be opened from bottom, or both ends to control light and privacy. And just like blinds, shades are also available in different types – the most common are Roller Shades, Roman Shades and Dual Roller or Cellular Shades.
