  Difference between "Blinds" and "Shades"  

Return Policy: Returns for Manufacturer's Warranty repair, only.



    Question: How do I get a price...or compute a price on a blind/shade?

    Answer: Round up the width to the next number on the "width" scale across the top of the price table; do the same with the "height" scale on the left side of the price table. Where the column and row intersect is your price. No sales tax (outside Georgia) or shipping charges (under 104" in width) for delivery within continental U.S. Be sure to review surcharges listed below price tables for upgrades and add-on features.



    Question: What is the difference between "blinds" and "shades?


A "blind" has slats, like 1/2", 1", 2" metal or wood blinds. Recently the "bamboo" blind was invented. It has 2" "bamboo/matchstick" slats that can be rotated/tilted so you can control light coming into a room and you can see between the slats.

A "shade" is generally made of "fabric" or "bamboo/reeds/matchstick" material. A shade can also be made of "honeycomb cellular" fabric for greater insulation, etc. Shades generally have to be hoisted up to clear a window so you can see out or let light in, etc....unless the fabric is "sheer" enough that you can see thru the fabric.

Blinds are typically "end" mounted, meaning their mounting brackets hold the headrails at the end of the headrails; however, blinds can also be mounted using "swivel" brackets and attaching them to the rear of the blind...much like shades.

Shades are typically "rear" mounted, meaning their mounting brackets are designed to attach to the rear of the headrail about 2" to 3" in from either side for smaller windows and may have center support rear mounted brackets for larger windows.

Those are the main distinguishing features between "blinds" and "shades".


    Question: What about "child safety"? What can be or is being done to protect small children from getting entangled in lift strings, etc.

    Answer: Hunter Douglas is probably the leader in incorporating "child safety" techniques in the design of their blinds and shades. There are "break away tassels" at the bottom of wood and mini blinds. "Continuous Loop Cords" keep the lift cords out of reach of small children and are attached through "spring tensioners" to the frame of windows. "Remote Control" devices such as the "PowerRise" headrail system can be purchased which eliminate cords and make it easier for you to raise/lower your Duette or Silhouette shades. Vertical blinds can be purchased without "chains" through the bottom of vanes and the controls can be simple twist wands which eliminate control strings and chains which run up and down the side of the vertical blind. There is also the "LiteRise" that eliminates lift cords for Duette, Applause, Pleated and other units; not to mention the "UltraGlide" system that uses a short cord which "retracts" to its original position after each pull to keep it out of the reach of small children. Browse around our site for pictures and information. Go to Child Safety for more on child safety, including pictures.



    Question: Do you have measuring and installation instructions online?

    Answer: Go to Measuring for measuring tips and Installation for installation included. Note: DO NOT take any deductions from your width x height dimensions. Place your order using the exact width x height dimensions you measured per the "Measuring" instructions above.



    Question: What's the fastest way to "see and touch" color and fabric samples?

    Answer: Drop by a local design center/department like Sears, Penney's, etc. Jot down the color name, number, and pattern/style name then order online at to save $$$ and get faster delivery! Or, just click on our Sample Request Form link here or on our Home Page to order available sample swatches.



    Question: How long from the date I place my order will it be before I receive my blinds/shades?

    Answer: 2-3 weeks for most products depending on where you live in relation to where your order is being shipped from. Arches, skylights, and other "specialty" blinds/shades  may take up to 4-5 weeks.



    Question: Where can I see pictures of the blinds or shades I am interested in?

    Answer: Generally right on our site. Just click the blind/shade type that you are interested in and scroll around. We are constantly adding information and pictures to our web pages in order to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. Color palettes are online or you can drop by a local design store (like Sears/Penney's, etc.) to take a look. Note color name and number as well as collection/pattern name.
