Window Covering Shades Are Pleated for Beauty and Function
Window Coverings Shades (window shades, window covering, and window treatments) are made of materials that can be permanently pleated, similar to pleated lampshades. These are drawn up and stack at the top of the window. Raising Window Coverings Shades allows more light into the room. Lowering them can allow more privacy and protect interiors from the sun. Shades can be stopped at different intervals, offering a neat and finished look for your windows.
The term, “window blinds” (window covering blinds) is interchanged often with the term, “Window Shades”, but they are actually two different kinds of Window Treatments. Window blinds are defined as being made with either vertical or horizontal slats that can be rotated for privacy control and maximum light tolerance. Vertical blinds function similar to drapes that are opened from the center and stack on both sides of the window or can draw from one side and stack as panels. Horizontal blinds are drawn upward, and can be concealed by a window topper treatment or a valance.
