Blackout roller shades are one of the best you can find to block out exterior light and keep your indoor space cool and dark.
Whether you want to be able to sleep in better on weekends, or want to give your child’s room a darker ambience to help them sleep better, or whether you just want to be able to take a refreshing afternoon nap, blackout shades are your thing. These shades are perfect for media rooms, as well. Watch the big game with friends, or enjoy movie night, without any annoying daytime or sunset glare coming in through the windows.
What’s the Difference Between Blackout and Room Darkening Shades?
Our room darkening shades do a great job of blocking out up to 90% – 95% of incoming light, while our blackout shades can block out up to 99%.
Roller shades will let light in through gaps between mounting hardware and the top of the shade. To achieve an absolute blackout effect with your window treatments of choice, try our Light Blocking Side Tracks.*
*Maximize your blackout shades’ darkening capabilities with our Light Blocking Side Tracks. Effectively black out that light that sneaks in from the sides of your shades.
And while we’re talking about a powerful blackout effect for your interior space, did you know that our Cordless Blackout Cellular Shades were selected 2021’s best blackout shades by the New York Times’ Wirecutter Reviews?
“We like cellular shades because they look good, effectively block light, and are easy to install. Our panel unanimously agreed that the Select Blinds’ Cordless Blackout Cellular Shades [are] the [ones] they’d most like in their homes. The polyester shade looks and feels noticeably better in quality than other shades we considered. Among the shades we tested, it has one of the widest selections of sizes and colors, and it’s covered by a three-year warranty, the longest of any model we considered.”
