Understanding Shades and Shutters

Shades and shutters do more than just cover your windows; they can dramatically alter the look and feel of a room. Here’s what you need to know about each:

  • Variety: Shades come in various styles, including roller, roman, cellular, and more. They are made from soft materials like fabric or woven fibers, offering a sleek profile that is closer to the window.
  • Light Control: Shades can be sheer, opaque, or somewhere in between, giving you precise control over light and privacy.
  • Energy Efficiency: Certain types like cellular shades are excellent for insulation, helping to keep your home comfortable year-round.

Wood Shutters with Casing


  • Durability: Shutters are hard window coverings made from wood or composite materials, providing a classic look that lasts for years.
  • Increased Property Value: Installing shutters can increase your home’s resale value thanks to their durability and timeless appeal.
  • Optimal Privacy: Shutters allow you to adjust the amount of light entering your home without compromising on privacy.

Both shades and shutters offer unique benefits, so the best choice depends on your specific needs and decor style. At Made in the Shade Reno, we’re here to help you choose the right option for your home with our expert advice and professional installation services.
