What is a "shade"?

A shade is a type of window treatment that is designed to cover a window and control the amount of light that enters a room. Shades are typically made of fabric or natural materials like bamboo or wood, and are available in a variety of styles and colors. They can be installed inside or outside the window frame and can be operated manually or with a motorized system. Some shades, like roller shades or honeycomb shades, are designed to provide insulation and energy efficiency, helping to keep a room warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Shades can be a practical and stylish addition to any room, providing privacy and light control while also enhancing the overall decor of the space.
