Blackout Shades & Blinds

  • Best choice for complete darkness
  • Blocks 99% of incoming light
  • Great for bedrooms and home theaters
  • Tight-fitting inside mounts block the most light
  • Many styles to darken your space

Blackout shades and blinds block nearly all incoming light with cellular shade, roman shade, roller shade, woven wood, pleated shade, panel track and skylight choices. Although sometimes called Blackout Blinds, a light blocking blackout effect is best achieved with shades, as they block the most light with a tight-fitting inside-mounted opaque shade. Blackout Shades eliminate maximum light seepage with specially woven material or with the addition of a liner to create a darker space than the subtler Room Darkening Shades. Custom blackout blinds provide the darkest blackout experience available.

"Great value for money!"

By amberdana from Becker MN

I spent a lot of time shopping for custom drapes for my two big picture windows; it was impossible to find off the rack drapes wide enough, and custom drapes through Costco's partner company were insanely expensive.  I am so happy I found Blindsgalore--the employees I telephoned and emailed were so professional, and I am so happy with how great my drapes look!

"above and beyond expectations"

By from

Thank-you for providing better than the best draperies! I could not be more thrilled! You will not be one bit disappointed. I had a problem upon initial delivery but the staff treated me like family. My problem was quickly resolved in a super professional manner. I am looking forward to ordering again and would highly recommend to everyone I know!
