Window Blinds vs. Window Shades

You can purchase blinds and shades with room darkening elements. They can be lined with a blackout fabric or shut tightly to block out unwanted light. Blackout blinds can be used for many purposes including bedrooms and family theater rooms. Family theaters are becoming more common in households with the creation of the big screen television, surround sound and even large home movie screens. One type of room darkening shade perfect for your home theater room is the classic roller shade. These blinds are an affordable choice for blackout blinds and can be customized to match your room. They are sure to keep the room dark and create a “theater” atmosphere.
