Or really, for any room you want to have the most darkness possible. At Window Treats serving Monmouth Beach, we love to help our customers get the right treatments to fit their needs the best. And that includes recommending the products that will help them achieve the most room-darkening, which usually is for media rooms or bedrooms. Get some ideas below, and be sure to speak with one of our specialists for information on your particular situation.
Of course, anything you put over a window will help darken a room, even if it’s just an old blanket. But of course, there are aesthetics to think about, as well as actual effectiveness. One main component to light blocking is fabric type and color. Sheer fabrics filter light, semi-opaque offer some privacy protection and some filtering, and opaques block the most—but not all—light. To completely get to room-darkening, consider some additional approaches. For one, mount the treatment outside of the window frame instead of inside it or add drapery or side panels. You can also add a room-darkening liner, available on most Hunter Douglas shades; the liner can be sewn onto the shade or you can have the option of letting it operate independently. Hunter Douglas has also designed some ways to reduce gaps, such as the Duette® LightLock™ system, which absorbs light and prevents it from entering the room.
Hunter Douglas Window Coverings
Your best option to get the most light blocking is to look at solid shades. For example, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which are designed with luxurious folds, can help reduce incoming light. Roller shades work well too, especially if you choose a specific room-darkening fabric. Another great option is honeycomb-shaped shades, like Duette® Cellular Shades, which also insulate the window, helping to keep your energy costs down, even when it’s very hot or very cold outside.
Window Treatment Lift Systems
Hunter Douglas offers a variety of lift systems, from standard manual operations to motorized systems. They all offer pet and child safety, and some offer more. UltraGlide® is a retractable cord system that lets you raise and lower your shades with no ugly, dangling external cords. LiteRise® is a cordless system that lets you gently raise and lower your shades with slight pressure from your hand. PowerView® Automation is a wireless operating system that can be used with a PowerView® Pebble® remote or with your mobile device or tablet, even if you’re not at home.
