Blackout curtains and shades are most often used in bedrooms and media rooms where you want to eliminate any light from entering through the windows.
Blackout curtains and shades are most often used in bedrooms and media rooms where you want to eliminate any light from entering through the windows. However, most window coverings are room darkening and not truly blackout because the edge of the window covering creates a “halo effect” of light. If you want to prevent any light from entering to achieve a true blackout effect, you will need to cover the gaps to eliminate the “halo effect” from your windows by using a layered window treatment that combines blackout curtains with either roll shades, cell shades or blinds.
If you’re looking to completely darken your room but maintain elegance in your decor, using blackout curtains with motorized drapery tracks is a good option. Newer drapery tracks can curve around your curtains for an optimally dark room. And you have many options when it comes to motorizing these treatments or setting up a manual pull system. Please note, this demonstration shows a normal drapery fabric, not blackout curtains.
One final way to eliminate the “halo” around the edges of light-filtering & room darkening window treatments is to create a multi-layer treatment that combines blackout curtains or roller shades with an additional window treatment to stop the light at the edges. One of our favorite combinations is to use roller shades with a valance/top treatment, and side panels. As shown in this video, beading is used to add extra elegance to your window coverings.
Coulisse’s Dual Roller Shade allows you to control light similar to a wood blind or sheer shade while giving you the clean look of a roller shade. The bottom rail and head rail are finished with a nice nickle finish and square lines. This product can be motorized or it does come in a manual operation.

What a great experience working with this professional knowledgeable company. I love the end product and the team fulfilled everything they promised.
Fabulous job 3 Blind Mice, I love my new shutters. Extremely professional, helpful and polite service.
The experience with the company was great from the home visit to pick options for blinds to the installation. They company was very responsive and prompt. The office worked very hard to work with my schedule. All of the representative showed up right on time and were very personable and knowledgeable. I was worried about wrinkles in a set of the Roman blinds that were installed and I receive an almost immediate call back and a very quick scheduling for steaming. Very good experience. I wish all companies provided this great of services.
I think everyone was exceptional. Sherry was very good to work with and very knowledgeable. I liked that I received the quote the day that she came. Chris was great when he came to measure the windows and again when he came to steam the Roman shades. It was great how Ruben kept me informed of the progress. Barbara was great in working around me schedule. Rusty and Brandon were a great team and had all 18 windows done in great time.
I am very happy with the entire process! It was fun to pick out my window coverings, and I didn’t feel pressured at all to make quick decisions or to address areas I wasn’t ready to look at. Installation was smooth and the installers were great guys. I love the way my new windows look….lots of compliments and I really feel like the process was customized just for me!
Great service. Very attentive. Product is amazing and really helps with my energy bills.
EVERYONE was fantastic! Following the original install, I noticed the sliding glass door blinds were not fully closing (the panels didn’t lay against each other and you could see inside/outside the house). When I telephoned and explained the problem I was experiencing, their response was to get back to my house (very quickly I’d like to add), and with a little tweaking they now close as they should. I appreciated their quick and efficient response! From start to finish, it was a pleasure dealing with 3 Blind Mice. Thank you!
We love the Roman shades from Graber. They have the most extensive and unique woven shade selection we have ever seen.
My blinds were completed ahead of schedule, and they worked around my work hours for both consultation and installment. I highly recommend.
Rick, my installer, did an outstanding job on the installation. Fast, courteous, and made sure everything was cleaned up and disposed of before he left!
7 windows with wood shutters…. in & out in an hour! All the shutters fit like like a glove thanks to their precise measurements
They were very professional, from Tammy’s initial visit to the installers and their work. Everything fit perfectly, and we love our new window coverings!
We have used Three Blind Mice on three occasions for three different types of window coverings. We have been delighted with all of the results. Not only are the finished products exactly what we needed the quality and service were excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend them!
Quality Installation, QUALITY Product!! I chose the blinds that have the lining to Stop the light from penetrating the blind. These were in a bedroom with three large south facing windows. When they are closed, 97% of the light is blocked!! The rising sun no longer wakes me up!! I call these types of blinds, Accordion type! Two go up and down for the windows, one large one goes left and right for the sliding glass door!!
Love my new blinds; color is perfect and the installation was flawless.
Quality product! Richard was great, not a pushy salesman and spent the time answering all of our questions. Installer was also helpful. Showed up on time was professional and friendly. We really enjoy our blinds
