Blackout shades can offer you a better night’s sleep or a theater-like vibe for entertaining guests. Light inhibits your body’s natural release of melatonin, which promotes sleep. The proper window shading will keep the sun out and allow for a solid night’s sleep for the entire family.

While Room-Darkening window shades can reduce approximately 95-99% of light that enters a space, blackout shade styles can eliminate brightness by up to 100% in some cases. That said, some room-darkening shades offer more benefits than others. A key consideration is fabric type and color. Sheer fabrics typically soften and filter sunlight, semi-opaque fabrics provide privacy while letting in some sunlight and opaque fabrics almost completely block all light. We say “almost” because these fabrics darken a room and may not entirely eliminate light—so they are not considered blackout shades.

Blackout Roller Shades

Roller shades combine a sleek, modern design with the ability to create just the right amount of light and privacy while minimizing glare. To enjoy nearly complete darkness any time of day, you can also opt for a room-darkening fabric as a nice alternative to a blackout shade.

Roller shades are typically designed with a minor light gap on each side of the shade, which can impact blackout capabilities when mounted inside a window jamb. To achieve true blackout with roller shades, an outside or pocket mount is recommended.

Blackout Honeycomb Shades

For room-darkening window treatments in your bedroom, nursery or media room, opt for the Duette Honeycomb LightLock system, with its unique U-shaped side channels that overlap the front and back of the shades. The secret to unparalleled room darkening lies within the patent-pending side channel design—which features rows of specially shaped micro-ridges, optimized to absorb or deflect nearly all incoming light while preventing the light from seeping into the room.

The Duette LightLock Sytem fits securely into the window frame and is the only one of its kind to provide such darkening effects. Its innovative U-shaped side channels feature a black, ridged interior surface that traps and absorbs light of all strengths and from all angles, leaving rooms nearly dark.
