Blinds and shades, contrary to popular belief and frequent misuse, aren’t the same thing. They’re very similar, though, so it’s easy to see why people get them mixed up or why they’ve practically become synonymous. They do serve the same purpose, albeit in slightly different ways. Sheer shades are a type of window covering that combines the best of both worlds, with a layer of semi-transparent fabric and adjustable vanes. This makes sheer shades a very versatile choice that offers elegance, utility, and style.
The Perfect Blind/Shade Combo
Sheer shades consist of a fabric layer backdrop, with a screen of adjustable vanes on the front. This makes them great at allowing you to decide exactly how much filtered light and privacy the interior of the room receives. You can raise or lower the shade just like its other counterparts, or you can lower it but adjust its sheer fabric vanes to vary the amount of diffused sunlight that makes it through. You can also keep sheer shades fully closed, darkening the room and increasing your privacy. Most people on the outside will be able to see is silhouettes.
A Sheer Range of Options
The use of fabric allows for a wide selection of choices. The sheer material available comes in a range of opaque to light hues, as well as varying colors. While the popular choice is often white, you can opt for something with a little more tinge, giving the filtered sunlight a little touch of red, blue, green, or any other color. You can also opt for patterns and textures that suit your taste and style, making sheer shades an excellent décor contribution that can complement the style of practically any room, from an office to a kitchen.
