Finding the right shades for your home can be difficult, especially if you have certain light control needs. Keeping light out of the home is important for many people, especially in rooms like bedrooms or a home theater, and blackout shades from Hunter Douglas can help you achieve that. At herberts workroom 101, we can show you all the different options for blackout shades and help you choose the ones that are right for your home. Schedule a free virtual design consultation and let our friendly staff show you all that blackout shades can offer your home!

The fabric you choose is very important when creating custom blackout shades. Sheer shades filter light to better illuminate a room, but for blackout shades, you’ll want to choose dense fabrics in dark colors. Many of the shades we offer are available in blackout or room darkening fabrics. Room darkening shades cannot block out all the natural light that enters your home, but they can darken it considerably. If you find a sheer fabric that you like but need more light control, we can also add a liner to most of our shades. These liners can be sewn directly into the shade or kept separate and operated independently.

A great option for room darkening shades is the Duette® line of honeycomb shades. These amazing shades have a cellular design that traps air to keep air from flowing freely through your windows in order to insulate your windows. This insulation keeps your home’s internal temperature consistent and can save you money on your energy bills because your heating and cooling units won’t have to work as hard. The extra fabric used to make up the cells is perfect for blocking out light, especially if these shades are made from opaque or semi-opaque fabrics.

Another great option is woven wood shades with an added liner. These beautiful shades bring natural warmth and charm into your home because they are made from natural materials like reeds, grasses, bamboos, and woods. The natural textures mean there are many different styles available, so you can easily find something that looks great in your home. With the liner kept separately, you can choose to have light filtering during parts of the day and room darkening when you need to block it. Additionally, our custom shades are made specifically for your windows, so you will get a perfect fit every time. We will even professionally measure your windows and install your window treatments for you.
