Blind Date: Pick The Perfect Shades

There’s a window covering for every personality. Styles can range from formal to funky and can coordinate or illuminate a room’s good looks.

Get your matchmaking started by understanding the “personality traits” of these popular options:

Cellular (or honeycomb) Shades

Cellular (or honeycomb) shades have unique air-trapping “cells” that expand and contract like an accordion when open and closed. When open, the accordion-like cells create an air barrier between the shade and the window, providing a cushion of insulation.


Wood And Faux Wood Blinds

Wood and faux wood blinds allow precision light control through tilt and lift ability, and with a wide range of finishes available, it is easy to coordinate with existing wood finishes such as furniture, cabinets and flooring.


Roman Shades

Roman shades blend fabric for the timeless silhouette of drapery with the performance qualities of a traditional shade, adding rich texture, depth and a dramatic presentation to any window.

Natural Shades

Natural shades come in a variety of fabrics blended with natural elements and soft materials such as jute, bamboo, reeds, grasses and other textiles.

Roller Shades

Roller shades bring contemporary yet classic styles in a variety of fabrics and screens, with opacities ranging from sheer to complete light block out. They add simple lines and sophisticated style for any number of living spaces.

    Great article which I found really interesting. In my view although and unfortunatley so, the best technique to clean window blinds is to take them down and give them a sponge bath in the shower using pinesol or lysol or something along those lines. any kind of cleaner will be okay.
