Window Coverings Overview: Blinds Vs. Shades

Privacy, energy efficiency and light requirements are some of the reasons people want their windows covered. The challenging part, however, is choosing the perfect window treatment.

Two of the most popular window coverings are blinds and shades. Many people use these terms interchangeably, but the two are different.

To help you pick the right window treatment, Handyman Connection® of Matthews discusses the differences between blinds and shades.


Window shades consist of a single, continuous fabric or woven wood that you can raise or lower. They are the perfect choice if you want to maintain the bright, airy vibe in a room. Blinds are a better option if your windows are in the direct path of the sun. Use blackout shades to maintain total darkness during the day.


Fortunately, both blinds and shades can maintain a room’s privacy when fully closed. Some shades, however, are made of sheer material that only obscures the view. This allows silhouettes and movements to be seen through them.

Energy Efficiency

Both shades and blinds can improve your home’s energy efficiency but in different ways. For instance, blinds are a worthwhile investment if you like to leave your windows open while ventilating your interior. For better insulation, shades may be the best option since they don’t have slats that let air flow through.


Similar to other components of your home, blinds and shades need maintenance. Blinds, for example, are magnets for dust, requiring frequent dusting. Textured shades, on the other, hide dust better and can be cleaned by vacuuming.
