Whether you want to darken your bedroom to sleep better or blockout light in the living room to enjoy movies, room darkening blinds help set the mood.

Room darkening blinds, or shades, block out up to 95 percent of incoming light while blackout shades can block out up to 99 percent. Both features are available on a wide range of window coverings, like dual shades, roller shades and even fabric horizontal blinds.

Plus, you don’t have to choose a dark color for a darkening effect. Simply add a room darkening or blackout liner on the back for increased privacy and light reduction!

Not ready to commit to room darkening blinds?

There are some things you can do to help keep light from seeping in on the sides.

  • Mount your window covering on the outside to prevent extra light from filtering in through the sides.
  • Layer curtains over your blinds to cover up the sides.
  • For side-by-side windows, consider our two-shades-on-one-headrail options.
