Room Darkening VS Blackout

Blackout shades can best be described as the absence of light, while room darkening shades remove *most* of the light. The fabrics can have a tremendous impact, but so can the custom fit of the coverings & the way the window treatments are mounted.

Dual Shades

The idea of having two shades at one window is powerful. The front shade can diffuse light–or even allow for view-through. Then, a blackout roller shade can lower into place when needed. It’s a great option for bedrooms and media spaces.

Light Gaps

The edges of the window blinds can introduce small slivers of light, often known as light gaps. These create a halo effect in the space, causing blackout shades to be more like room darkening. To prevent–or lessen–this circumstance, consult with your window covering specialist to choose the right type of room darkening blinds for your windows. There are options to cover the light gaps with side drapes, or to choose a feature like LightLock, which seals out the light.
