What Are Shades?

Window shades are a continuous roll of fabric that covers a large area of a window opening. The window treatment’s main purpose is to regulate light and maintain privacy. You can choose between different levels of opacity to suit your light preferences but they do not offer light filtering as blinds do. The fabric material offers a warm and flowing feeling. They fit perfectly into your window and stay neatly at the top. They are either drawn up and down by cords or by a spring device. Some of the most popular types of window shades are Roller, Roman, and Cellular.

How to Properly Measure Your Window Before Installing Blinds and Shades

To ensure the correct fit, measure your window before going to a store or ordering online. Take precise measurements for width, height, and depth.

Inside Mount Vs. Outside Mount

Each blind and shade mount has its unique set of measurements.

Inside Mount shades and blinds are installed inside the window recess.

  • Take measurements for the top, middle, and bottom window openings. Round the smallest dimension up to 1/8 inch.
  • Using the same approach as the width, measure the internal height of your window.
  • Measure the window diagonally.

Outside Mount shades and blinds are installed above the window frame.

  • Determine how far your blinds or shades will extend. Blinds should have a 1-inch overhang on each side of the window.
  • It can be difficult to predict how long it will take to install a blind. Blinds or shades should be installed 1 to ½ inch above the window opening.


What is the key difference between light filtering and blackout roller shades?

Natural light filters through light-filtering roller blinds, providing varying degrees of seclusion depending on the thickness and opacity of the materials. Most materials provide maximum privacy, while some allow you to see silhouettes. Blackout roller blinds, which are available in both vinyl and fabric materials, are designed to block out light as well as provide the most privacy. To block out light and ensure complete privacy, all fabric blackout roller blinds feature a vinyl backing. Depending on how the blackout roller blinds are installed, you may observe light holes on the sides.

Will there be light gaps in my roller shades?

Light gaps on the sides may occur depending on where your roller blinds are installed. When placed on the interior of the window, the material for the roller shades is roughly 1¼” narrower than the mechanism, creating minor gaps on both sides. If you have any further queries about these light gaps, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Should I purchase motorized window shades for my home or office?

All window treatments have the same purpose: they improve your privacy, and light control, and provide beneficial décor to the room. Motorized blinds provide additional functionality while maintaining all of the typical benefits of traditional blinds. The additional fee is a small price to pay for a better experience while using your window shades and blinds. Motorized products offer a safer environment for children in your household because it eliminates the need for cords. Going for a motorized window shade is a good choice and should definitely be considered.

What should I consider before opting for motorized window shades?

You should always bear in mind the possible downsides of using motors instead of cords. First, ask yourself why you want the motors in the first place. Do you want it to be more modern, to make a safer environment, etc.? If you think your reasons are worth spending time and money on motorized blinds, then you should be good to go. Secondly, you might encounter problems when operating motorized window coverings while in a power outage.
In addition, the initial cost of motorized products is high. When you buy automated window coverings, they will come with motors, a power source (batteries or connecting to your electric line), and other components that allow them to be connected to your remote controller or phone, which is why they are expensive.
