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 Purchase!"

By Laurie from VA

We have two skylights in our bedroom which the sun beams through in the evenings.  It was heating up our bedroom so much and causing the air to constantly run.  As soon as we put these up we instantly felt a difference.  It stays so much cooler and blocks out the majority of the sunlight in the evenings.  Definitely a great purchase and it only took my husband about an hour to get both of the shades installed. I plan on getting more for the skylight in our kitchen! We also received our shades sooner than the expected shipping date, so that was a major plus! I would definitely recommend these!!
