When the time comes to select window treatments, you'll quickly discover that there are endless options to choose from. A common dilemma is blinds vs. shades: which is the better option for your needs? Each one offers its own advantages and features, so let's take a look at each:

Danmer Window BlindsBlinds

Horizontal blinds are a popular choice, and suit a wide variety of rooms, especially those rooms where an outside view is desired.  With adjustable slats and the ability to be drawn up or down, blinds offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to light control and privacy.  Our hardwood blinds are an excellent choice when you need a high degree of adjustability, and are commonly chosen for living areas, dining rooms and kitchens.

Danmer Window ShadesShades

Shades are commonly chosen for rooms where privacy is a key factor.  You can choose shades in a variety of materials depending on the type of light control you want and the décor of the room where they will be used.  At Danmer, our shades are available in both fabric and wood, and in varying degrees of light filtering, so it’s easy to find the right choice for your needs.  Our shades are a popular choice for bedrooms, bathrooms and studies. 

In the end, the matter of blinds vs. shades is often resolved by personal preference – chances are, you prefer the look of one over the other.  Both offer adjustability and the ability to balance light control with privacy needs.  If you’d like more insight into the blinds and shades that Danmer  has available, please call our toll-free number or fill out the form to the right for your free in-home consultation.  Our Design Consultant will come to your home and make it easy to choose by seeing our products and getting a better feel for how they’ll look in your home.
