What is the difference between window shades, window shutters, and blinds?

Window shades, window shutters, and blinds differ in cost, looks, and energy efficiency. Shutters are more of an architectural piece. Shades are more of a soft alternative. Blinds are a cost-effective custom window treatment.

One way of improving your home is by installing shades to your windows. Window shades allow you to control the amount of light that enters a room. This helps control temperature, helps eliminate glare, and also protects floors, furniture, and decor from harsh UV rays that can cause fading and damage. Our window shades come in a variety of colors and styles and can complement any decor. Some choose sheer options for rooms that require less privacy and more light, and some choose shades that offer maximum light and privacy control.

Shutters are easy to clean and collect less dust than traditional curtains and shades. They allow you to control the amount and quality of light that enters and exits a room and can darken a room more effectively than curtains. Shutters are available in many different colors, styles, and finishes. Shutters are hand-crafted to suit your taste and design. Accent Shutter & Shades offers custom shutters for both the interior and exterior of your home.
