Blackout Roller Blinds & Shades

Why would you want blackout roller shades or blinds for your room?

Imagine that you’ve built a home theater in your living room. You darken the lights and turn on your TV, ready to watch the latest blockbuster. But there’s a shaft of lighting seeping through your window frame. No matter how you try, you can’t ignore the light as it creeps over your screen, making it impossible to enjoy your movie.

Or perhaps you find yourself struggling to sleep at night. While the roller shades you’ve installed fit perfectly, they still let in a little light from the outside. You want a pitch-black bedroom. But you’re not getting that with the window solution you already have.

If any of this sounds familiar, you need blackout blinds or shades. These window solutions give you complete control over how much light enters your room. When they’re open, you get all of the light you could want from outside. But when they’re closed, your room gets enveloped in complete darkness.

How Do Blackout Shades Work?

Think of blackout roller blinds as a room-darkening solution. They use special light filtering construction to absorb the light from outside, ensuring none of it enters your room. These types of shades are ideal for keeping light out of your home theater, bedrooms, and living rooms. They’re also perfect for homes with children or pets because they ensure your little ones aren’t kept awake when it’s still bright outside.

It's also important to point out that blackout shades are not the same thing as room-darkening shades.

Room darkening window treatments block between 85% and 95% of light. While this means they’ll serve well as a window shade, they’re not ideal if you want complete darkness. Blackout roller blinds prevent any light from filtering into your room.

We offer a range of blackout shades and blinds, including:

  • Pull down blackout shades and blinds
  • Roller blackout shades and roller blackout blinds
  • Blackout cellular shades

FAQs

Do blackout roller shades keep heat out?

Roll-down blackout shades and roller blackout blinds do more than keep light from entering a room. They also keep the heat out. The blinds act as insulators, which means they prevent heat from entering your home and can stop it from leaving in colder conditions. Blackout pull-down shades can also prevent drafts.

What are blackout roller shades

You get a little bit of light blocking from regular pull-down shades. Blackout shades enhance those light-blocking effects by preventing 100% of the light outside from entering your room. This makes them ideal for rooms that require complete darkness, such as bedrooms, home theaters, and computer rooms.

Can you install blackout roller shades yourself?

As long as you have some standard handheld tools, including a screwdriver, drill, and pliers, you can install your blackout blinds yourself. You can find detailed instructions on how to install vertical blackout blinds in our installation guide.
