Bamboo Blinds or Bamboo Shades: What is the Difference?
By admin
6/24/2009 8:28:00 AM

Many times customers and businesses use the terms blind and shade synonymously. So when it comes to a Bamboo window treatment, this mixing of verbiage can cause confusion. Even we use the term interchangeable ways since and actual shade is usually what customers are looking for even if they search for bamboo blinds. So what is the difference? A shade is usually a piece of fabric or in this case, woven wood (bamboo, grass, reed, fabric, etc) that is raised and lowered in either a roman style, or a roll-up style (the former being more elegant generally). A blind, however, indicates thee are slats that tilt open and closed, like venetian blinds, mini blinds, etc, there are slats, made solely or primarily with bamboo. These slats may have a woven look, or may look very similar to a basswood blind - depending on how they are manufactured. True bamboo window blinds are much more of a niche product, since they are usually a bit more expensive than bass wood blinds, yet look similar (although they are ‘greener’); whereas, bamboo shades are quite en vogue with designers right now, who often dress a window with a combination of a bamboo shade, and colorful drapery panel set.

Hopefully this helps explain the difference, but if you still have any questions, give us a call and we’d be happy to discuss with you in more detail!
