What window treatments effectively block out light?
Last Updated on
When homeowners consider interior design schemes, they often look for ways to maximize the amount of natural light that flows into living spaces. During active hours, natural light brings warmth and richness to the home. But there are certain times when you want to shut out the outside world. In such situations, you’ll want window treatments that can darken the room. For those who enjoy sleeping in on the weekends, such window treatments will prevent the morning sun from waking you up before you’re ready. At Athena’s Window Fashions, we can work within your budget to help you pick out stylish window treatments that will provide your ideal amount of light.
Blackout Cellular Shades
Blackout cellular shades do a superb job of creating total darkness. These shades feature fabric that is 100% blackout. With sides that run vertically along a channel, full darkness is achieved in the room. For room darkening window treatments, the Hunter Douglas LightLock System is an excellent option worth considering.
Roman Shades with Blackout Lining
While Roman shades are very popular for contemporary homes, some types don’t thoroughly block out light. However, a simple solution is to add blackout lining, which provides darkness as desired, while still giving you the beautiful look of Roman shades.
PowerView Shades by Hunter Douglas
Through motorization and an easily programmable daily schedule, PowerView Shades make it simple for you to ensure that the room darkens and lightens at your desired times. PowerView Shades can block out light, and are also desirable because they can be integrated into whole-home automation systems, such as Alexa.
If you love a lot of light during the day, but total darkness at night, then you might consider sheer curtains with blackout liners, which will give you the best of both worlds. Or, if you have a unique vision for custom draperies that strongly block out light, we’ll work with you to create just the right window treatments for your desires. We take pride in our expertise with creating custom window fashions that perfectly fit your required dimensions.
