Blackout shades, also referred to as blackout blinds or room darkening shades, block 99% of incoming light. This is a popular feature for bedrooms, home theaters, or any room where you want to block out light. Since not all blinds and shades are equal in blocking light, we've assembled the following selection of blackout blinds to make your selection easier. Blindsgalore offers the best selection of blackout shades and blinds available online. Save with discount prices, free shipping & samples on our blackout blinds.
Blindsgalore makes shopping for blackout roller shades and curtains easy and affordable. No need to leave your home. Simply pick the blackout shades for your windows and get them delivered to your door. Choose from major brands including Bali, Levolor, Comfortex, Graber and our signature line.
It should be noted, that technically there's no such thing as blackout blinds. True blackout can only be achieved with window shades and, to a lesser extent, curtains. Blinds have too many gaps between all the slats and vanes to effectively blackout a room.
There is a difference. Blackout cannot be achieved with any opaque window shade. It is the combination of two factors: an inside-mounted, opaque window shade, and a tight-fit within the window casing to cut back on light seepage. An outside mounted shade can also provide blackout as long as there is sufficient overlap to eliminate light gaps at the edges. The application and definition of room darkening shades is broader and may not always mean the same thing. Blackout is specific and means to block most incoming light.
Blackout can be achieved with a number of different blackout shades to satisfy your design needs as well. Some blackout window shades, like cellular shades and roman shades, are made from a blackout material to block light, while woven wood shades use an attached blackout liner. We carefully chose this selection of products and styles that provide the best blackout experience. There are even options for panel tracks and skylights.
Keep in mind that the blackout property of a window covering applies to light trying to pass through the shade - also consider the light going around the shade. For blinds ordered as inside mount, a small deduction will be taken from your ordered size by the manufacturer so that the blind will fit inside the window; depending on the depth and construction, light may creep around the side of the blind. A drapery or side panel can help cover up this light seepage. You might also consider an outside mount blackout shade with plenty of overlap on the sides, top and bottom.
Custom shades fit better in your window casing and are therefore an important component of achieving blackout. Custom blackout shades have minimal light gaps between the shade and casing. This precise fit, coupled with opaque shades makes for the best blackout window shades.
For outside mount shades, just remember to add enough width and length to cover the window plus part of the wall to prevent light from going around the shade. Having a generous overlap helps to provide the maximum amount of blackout needed. Although there may be a soft glow around the edges of the shade, no direct sunlight will pass through the material.
