Adding Blackout Shades to Your Home

Blackout shades have been a longtime favorite of many customers. Blackout shades have the power to provide impressive darkness even when faced against broad daylight, making them a solid option for those who work second and third shifts as well as those who live along busy streets full of artificial light. Sometimes, blackout blinds can feel a bit limiting because of the lack of design options or how difficult it can feel to achieve varying levels of light control. This is why we at Don’s Drapery Service love our Hunter Douglas window treatment products. Blackout curtains and blackout blinds don’t have to be limiting at all. You can enjoy the appeal of light control without having to sacrifice the style you want to bring to your home. Check out a few of our favorite blackout window treatments below.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

Outfit your windows in light control and energy efficiency at the same time with Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Duette® cellular shades feature a unique honeycomb-shaped interior that traps air, keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Explore a beautiful collection of exclusive fabrics offered by the Alustra® Collection for an array of colors, textures, patterns, and opacities. Duette® pairs with the innovative Duolite® system which features a secondary roller shade for additional light control and the ability to customize your degree of incoming light. This works great for living rooms and bedrooms where blackout shades made the difference in a great night’s sleep, but you want to filter light for a soft glow during the day.

Blackout Solutions That Aren’t Shades

You aren’t limited only by blackout shades. Maybe you want to enjoy the same great light-blocking power of cellular and roller shades but aren’t sold on that style of window covering. Well, we’re here to help! Enjoy the classic warmth and tone of authentic hardwood blinds with added light-blocking engineering when you explore the Parkland® Wood Blinds collection from Hunter Douglas. These gorgeous wood blinds boast de-Light™ construction which eliminates cord holes for up to 50% more light control compared to typical window blinds. Finish off these blinds with custom decorative tapes for a pop of color. We also love recommending Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds for a sleek touch to your modern décor. Metal blinds naturally offer higher degrees of light control thanks to reflective properties and the innovation of de-Light™ technology from Hunter Douglas.
