Blackout shades are great for bedroom or theater room window treatments. Room darkening blinds or blackout shades can often be added to shades like honeycomb shades, roman shads, room darkening soft sheer shades or bamboo shades.

One of the most popular blackout shade combination is the honeycomb cell shade because it offers excellent sound absorption and light filtration. Cell shades come in various pleat sizes and light control options. Make sure you choose room darkening or blackout cellular shades and not a light filtering shade.

Another option is woven wood shades with a blackout liner. Many woven wood shades allow light through the natural wood fibers, but a blackout liner will block the unwanted light.

Wood or faux wood blinds are also an option, but are not a complete blackout blind. Ask your customer service representative to offer suggestions based on your blind choice. If you select horizontal blinds make sure you select the rootless blinds upgrade. This helps reduce more light than the standard horizontal wood blinds.
