The funny thing is, just because blinds and shades share the same purpose, people tend to think that blinds and shades are the same. Plenty of people even interchange one for the other.
To give you a quick answer, they are not the same. In fact, they work differently when it comes to covering up your windows.
Blinds are made of solid materials such as wood, metal or bamboo. It is composed of vanes and slats. They’re an opaque type of window covering that can also be adjusted at a different angle if you wish to see through them.
Shades on the other hand, are the translucent type of window covering. They don’t have slats and vanes, but a somewhat see-through fabric instead that lets you experience a smooth look through your window.
Despite their differences, both offer a quality of traditional and classic mood that can surely match your lovely home.
