Block Out the Light with Room Darkening

When deciding on window treatments for every room, the bedrooms are most-likely on the list. And, which feature is most popular? Room darkening, of course. Getting a good night’s sleep has a huge impact on your health and everyday life.

But, that’s not all this amazing feature can do. Blackout shades & room darkening are a great way to customize your spaces. Not just for bedrooms, but also for media rooms and south-facing rooms that get a lot of sunshine all day long. When looking into serious light control, consider these features:

  • Seal out light gaps with LightLock™
  • Get a variety of lighting with Duolite® dual shades
  • Choose fabrics that will block light
  • Experience automatic control with smart shades

Design Areas of Comfort & Control

When we think of the living areas in our homes–kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms–we want to control the atmosphere so comfort is king. But, since we live in our homes throughout the day–with various activities & lighting conditions–adjustment can be an important factor. Natural lighting improves the mood, but glare becomes an issue pretty quickly. Sunlight streaming in can increase our energy levels, but too much can be exhausting.

Silhouette® Window Shades

We offer a variety of sheer shades. These collections bring soft lighting in, while allowing you to reduce the glare and enjoy the landscape views. Not only are they great in the main living areas of your home, but open floor plans are a great place to bring in sheers that fit the form and function of the space while still coordinating the design.

Handle the “Hard to Reach” Windows

Windows that reach near the ceiling of your home, skylights, or windows that are well beyond reach can be a beautiful design aspect of your home. But, with windows comes light. The uncontrolled light can bring harsh rays and exhausting heat. You might like to cover them, but then they’re covered. So, for those rooms where you need to solve issues without sacrificing design, what do you do?

Sometimes, the windows that are tough to adjust aren’t high up on the wall. Layout challenges, like furniture and fixtures can get in the way of much-needed control. Smart shades are an incredible way to ensure the ideal atmosphere. Make adjustments in an instant, or sit back and enjoy scheduled adjustments that fit your lifestyle.
