Blackout Shades & Blackout 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.

"Best blind purchase yet"

By Blackout BlindsFan from Portland

These blinds are amazing for blocking out light.  Easy to install.  Depending on window framing you will have to install small amounts of weather striping to get the last tiny bits of light blocked out (Small amount included).  The bottom of my window was not level and had a slight light streak I purchased some weather stripping and when blind is closed no light (Attached it to bottom of blind).  If you need to block out light in your room for sleeping or home theater take a look at these.  They are amazing at blocking light.  I plan to purchase them again soon to start blocking more light out of my theater room.
