You've seen homes with gorgeous drape-like shades
that you want for your own, but not everyone
knows the difference between window treatments.
Are shades and drapes the same thing? Are
curtains and blinds interchangeable? It's
important to know the differences between these
popular types of exterior window treatments so
you can choose what's best for your home.
However, while all four types of window
treatments can be used with many decorating
styles and in any room of the home, each has
distinct characteristics of its own. When you are
a new homeowner, there are an abundance of
decisions to be made. One of the easiest and most
important choices is deciding on which window
treatments will best meet your needs for your
home. There are many options available to you,
some of which may be overwhelming. The good news
is that there are a few easy ways to
differentiate each window treatment so that you
can make an informed purchase decision.

Curtains Curtains are an affordable way to make a
big impact in your home. Curtains are a great way
to add stylish and beautiful window treatments as
well as to change the look of a room. Curtains
come in a wide variety of fabrics, colors,
patterns and designs, allowing users to choose
from different fabrics for different rooms of
their home --- even bathrooms and kitchens. While
no longer limited to use in the home or living
room, curtains are also being used for curtains
for windows of automobiles such as SUVs. Curtains
serve as a centerpiece in many rooms. Youll
likely use curtains over another window
treatment, such as a blind or shade, because
curtains are made of lightweight, sometimes sheer
fabrics that unlined. This means that while
curtains do filter out some light, they wont
filter out all of itthus, they wont keep your
bedroom dark when you want to sleep late.

Drapes Like curtains, drapes are fabric panels,
and typically sold in pairs. The differences
between curtains and drapes, however, is that
drapes are lined, sometimes with fabric heavy
enough to block out all outside light, making
them perfect for bedroom use. Drapes are similar,
but different from curtains and blinds. They are
used to provide an insulating layer of
protection. While curtains can be elegant, drapes
are generally regarded as sturdier because they
keep out the sun, direct the flow of air inside
the home and offer additional privacy. Although
they come in a wide range of textures and
weights, drapes are almost always made out of
heavier, stiff textile materials. This is because
the rigid structure allows window coverings to
withstand heavy traffic while keeping their shape.

Shade A shade is a material that can be mounted
into the window frame. This special type of
window treatment is designed to be attached to a
roller, which sits inside the window track. When
you raise the shade or pull on the attached
cords, it will move away from the window and stop
at different levels. When you're ready to lower
the shade, you pull the cord, which then lowers
it along with the rod into position. shades come
in a wide range of lengths, widths, colors, and
materials and are sized to fit within the window
frame, unlike drapes or curtains that hang below
the sill.

Blinds A lot of wood, vinyl, and metal window
blinds incorporate slats that tilt up and down
these are called lift-up blinds or tilt-in-slats.
Standard blinds tilt from side to side with a
small cord or chain that you can raise or lower
to set the height of the slats. This allows you
to choose exactly how much light you want in your
room and to monitor whos outside without giving
passersby a clear view into your home. The main
common feature of blinds that they are made with
flat slats which can be moved up or down. And
they are usually made from hard metal, wood,
fabric or plastic. They are also quite suitable
for garden windows in the house.
