Blackout Shades vs. Room Darkening Shades
Q:What is the difference between room darkening and blackout shades? Is room darkening the same as blackout?
A:Blackout shades and room darkening shades are both designed to darken a room. There is really no difference, just a different way of saying the same thing. Blackout blinds are great for home theaters, bedrooms, or anywhere you need to block the light.
There are many options for blackout shades. Choose from the high insulation and energy saving honeycomb shades. ComforTrack honeycomb cell shades offer added sidetracks for more energy savings and light control.
The elegant and stylish blackout roman shades. Fusion roman shades offer a cell shade liner behind the roman shades for the benefits of a honeycomb shade but the look of a roman shade.
Bamboo shades can be blackout shades by simply adding a blackout liner behind the bamboo. Upgrade any of our bamboo shades with a blackout liner.
Shutters have always been one of the classic blackout window coverings. Shutters are also one of the best insulating window treatments so you are sure to save on your energy bills.
Other options for room darkening window coverings are blackout roller shades, horizontal fabric shades, and draperies. Horizontal window blinds are not typically great blackout blinds. They are great for privacy but allow minimal light to pass between the window blind slats.
