Blackout Curtains & Shades

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.

Product Overview

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.

Blackout Roller Shades with Side Channels

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.

Multi-Layer Treatments

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.

Innovative Window Covering Options

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.
