How to Choose The Ultimate Blackout Window Shades?
If you love darkness, then blackout window shades are perfect for your room. These shades will allow you to block out all light as well as prevent anyone from looking into your windows.
Blackout shades are made from a unique material that helps you block sunlight from getting into your room, and also obstructs any light inside being seen by anybody on the outside. These shades also help reduce your energy bill by reducing heat gain and heat loss. This means the shades maintain your room’s temperature by reflecting or by absorbing the daylight. This makes blackout window privacy shades ideal for bedrooms and media rooms where you require privacy and darkness.
What’s the difference between blackout and room darkening shades?
Blackout window shades provide maximum light blockage. They are great for nurseries, media rooms, and even bedrooms for when you want to sleep in. Room darkening shades stop just short of total light blockage but offer an abundance of styles and light-control options.
What makes them useful for my bedroom or media room?
When you watch a movie with your family or friends, the best thing you can bring to your living room or media room is an enjoyable viewing experience. Blackout shades are excellent for bringing complete darkness to your room, giving it that home theater feels.
For our bedrooms, all we want to do is relax after a long chaotic day. A completely dark room is the key to a good night’s rest. So choose any blackout shade to get that perfect sleep. Blackout shades help you sleep properly and keep your bedroom dark and cozy.
While blackout and room darkening fabrics block light, some light may get in through light gaps on the side of your shades. These gaps normally allow the shade to raise and lower without rubbing the side of the window frame. Roller type shades typically have a light gap of ¾” on each side, while the light gap on cellular shades is negligible.
