What is the difference between Curtains, Shades, Drapery, and Blinds?

Rate this post

Window treatments come in a dizzying array of choices, making it difficult to zero in on the best fit for your house. Many individuals, especially interior decorators, use the phrases “Drapery” and “curtains”, as well as “shades” and “blinds”, as if they were synonyms. Even though all four types of window treatments may be utilized in any house room and with a wide variety of decorating styles, each has its unique features.

Each window treatment has its own set of advantages and disadvantages, and this guide explains how to identify them apart.

 

Curtains

Curtains

In the majority of cases, curtain panels are sold in pairs. For every area of the house, including the bathroom and the kitchen, you may find curtains in various widths, lengths, materials, colors, and patterns.

 

Drapery

Drapery

Typically supplied in pairs, Drapery is also made of fabric panels like curtains. On the other hand, Drapery are lined with heavy fabric that may completely block out light, making them ideal for usage in the bedroom. Drapery (also known as draperies) are long enough to cover a window from the top to the bottom, sometimes even dripping a little below the window. Some materials like velvet, silk and damask are mainly used for this product.

A broad variety of drapery styles and colors are available. However, the vast majority of draperies are solid and not significantly patterned. With its heavy fabric and pleated top, a drapery panel lends itself to a more formal look than other window treatments. This product hangs like curtains with a pole and rings, hooks, grommets, or a fabric sleeve at the top or rear of the panel.

It’s common in the bedroom to use blackout Drapery since they keep the room dark enough for a good night’s sleep. Night-shift workers and those who must sleep during the day may find these an especially useful option.

 

Shades

Shades

A shade is a soft cloth panel fastened to a rod or frame at the top. Shades are a great option if you’re shopping for window treatments because they can be customized to fit your specific window size and shape rather than hanging below the window sill as Drapery or curtains do. A cable, roller, or lifting mechanism can be used to raise the shade to let in light or look outside. Depending on the shade’s style, the shade either bunches or rolls around a rod and there are many different forms of window blinds.

 

Blinds

Blinds

In contrast to shades raised and lowered by a cord or other lifting mechanism, blinds are made of a flexible material. An alternative to curtains is the use of tilting, or “louver,” blinds, which have slats of wood, bamboo, aluminum, or vinyl to let light in or keep it out. As a result, raising the full blind is rarely necessary unless you need to open the window below.

The slats of micro blinds and well-known Venetian blinds are usually half-inch or one-inch deep, respectively. Some blinds fit perfectly inside a window frame. For the most part, blinds are solid wood or a wide range of wood tones.
