Frequently Asked Questions.

Looking to learn more about blinds and shades? Our professionals are here to help with any questions.

What is the difference between blinds and shades?

Blinds have slats that can be tilted to control light, while shades are made of a continuous piece of material that can be raised or lowered. Blinds offer more precise light control, while shades provide a streamlined look.

How do I choose the right size for my window shades or blinds?

Measure the width and height of your window accurately. For inside mount, measure the width at the top, middle, and bottom of the window. For outside mount, measure the width and height of the window frame.

Are there eco-friendly options for window shades and blinds?

Yes, many manufacturers offer sustainable materials and environmentally friendly options. Look for shades made from recycled materials or those certified by eco-friendly standards.

Can window shades help with energy efficiency?

Yes, certain types of window shades provide insulation, reducing heat transfer in both hot and cold weather. This can lead to energy savings by reducing the workload on heating and cooling systems.

Are there child-safe options?

Yes, child-safe options include cordless shades, motorized blinds, and those with breakaway cords or cord cleats. It’s essential to follow safety guidelines, especially in homes with young children or pets.

How long do shades and blinds typically last?

The lifespan varies based on factors like material and usage. Well-maintained shades and blinds can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years or more. Regular cleaning and proper care contribute to longevity.
