The reason blinds are considered a hard window treatment is because blinds contain individual slats, the horizontal or vertical. These pieces are separate and are typically harder than window shades which conversely are called “soft” window treatments. Also shades are made from fabric which gives them their softer look.

Every home needs some type of window treatment and each type of window treatment has its own benefits. Blinds are designed to create privacy and control the light coming in, and they are extremely efficient at doing this. Shutters have the same function of privacy and light control that is similar to blinds, but shutters add decorative appeal and style to the home. The same could be said about shades in reference to privacy and adding a design element to any room. Shades, however, have the option to stop all light from coming through completely.
