Differences Between Window Shades and Roller Shades
Roller shades are a very simple, affordable, and minimalist type of window treatment. Rather than having cells, slats, or veins, they are constructed from a solid sheet of material that rolls up onto a rod installed at the top of the window. They are typically operated by pulling down on the bottom of the shade. Still, motorized roller shades can be operated by pressing a button, a remote, or even a smartphone app. They are popular because they are so simple and unobtrusive, but they can also be used as a secondary privacy or light-blocking option underneath curtains or drapes.
Other popular window shades may not be as simple or clean as roll-up ones, but they offer other unique advantages. Ultimately, the type of window covering you choose will depend on your personal style preferences, goals and needs, existing interior decor, and budget. The most popular home window coverings are:
- Window blinds – Window blinds have long been a common choice for home and property owners. They are low-cost, simple to install, and available in various materials and colors. You can choose from wood, faux wood, vinyl, plastic, and aluminum blinds.
- Cellular shades – Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades, use a honeycomb design to filter light and insulate the windows. They are energy efficient and offer privacy, style, light control, and lower energy costs. They are available in many colors, materials, and designs.
- Shutters – Shutters are panels of different sizes and styles that can be installed inside or outside the home to offer privacy, insulation, light control, and security. They may be slatted, louvered, or flat. They protect windows from damage and lower window maintenance costs. They are available in various colors, styles, designs, and materials.
- Draperies – Drapes are cloth panels installed on each side of the window. They can be pulled open and closed manually, or you can install motorized drapes. They are available in different materials, colors, patterns, sizes, and styles.
- Screens – Window screens are installed on the interior or exterior of windows to offer privacy, light control, and solar protection. They have insulating and energy-efficient properties and can be controlled by rolling them up and down, or they can be motorized or automatic. They range from mesh or see-through options to complete blackout shades and are available in different sizes, colors, styles, and materials.
- Motorized window treatments – Motorized window treatments are easy to operate and reduce the risk of injury to children and pets. They can be controlled with a remote, button, or smartphone app. You can choose from motorized blinds, roller blinds, shades, screens, and solar screens.
