What are blackout shades?

A better question might be “What aren’t blackout shades?” Custom Hunter Douglas blackout shades are less a specific style of shade than a level of functionality you can add to other window shades. What makes normal window shades into blackout shades is the opacity of the fabric that is used to make them. To qualify as blackout shades, this fabric needs to be as opaque as possible, getting as close to complete light control as can be achieved. This fabric can be used to create a variety of different window shade types, so you can enjoy total light control while also enjoying the other aesthetic and functional benefits of Hunter Douglas shades.

What are my options forblackout shades?

As stated above, you have a number of choices for what shades you would like to turn into custom Hunter Douglas blackout shades. A few styles are particularly suited for blackout capabilities, however. Roman shades, roller shades, and woven wood shades all make excellent blackout shades, although for different reasons. The elegance of roman shades allows you to get the most from both form and function, while roller shades are so simple and easy to use that they make enjoying blackout shades a no-brainer. And, if you find yourself particularly stressed right now, blackout woven wood shades can make your home feel like the dark, tranquil heart of a forest, even if you’re homeschooling kids and trying to work at the same time.
