I have no eye for this type of thing

Do you prefer blinds or Roman/cellular/roller shades?

I use to have cellular shades from Home Depot in my old house. They worked ok but looked kinda cheap (and tbh weren’t that cheap).

The handles keep breaking, but otherwise I like them a lot. Can have the top portion open letting in light while keeping privacy. Also don't have the strings on the sides.

Bedroom and living room windows have curtains/sheers, cellular shades in the bathroom, no coverings on dining/kitchen/office windows.

same, i've got hunter douglas in the main living spaces, love it

went cheaper with top down bottom up blackout cellular blinds (from blinds to go i think) in the bedrooms. the blackout is legit.

I can't stand vertical or horizontal blinds. The pull thingies always die or incite rage. They're a super bitch to clean.

I have roman shades. Still a pull mechanism, but without all the individual moving parts. Far fewer problems.

Some windows have the shades plus drapes for full blackout because migraines make light hurt so, so bad. I don't have as many migraines now (the medicine works!) so I live less like a vampire.

No clue what brand or style, they were in the house when we bought it. Doors have pull down cellular shades. Every window has pull down blinds. You just pull them down or push them up, and they stay where you leave them. Slight tug up or down to change blind orientation. Best window coverings I've ever had.
