The Right Way To Black Out Your Windows In Dallas

June 16, 2021

Off-the-shelf ”blackout” window coverings claim they block all light, and will keep your room pitch black, energy-efficient, and private. Unfortunately, they don’t fit your windows and they still let light slip in along the product’s perimeter. Alternatively, try custom roller shades or interior shutters to black out windows in Dallas. Your customized roller shades can have a thick, dark pattern or color and have no gaps to keep your room dark, while Polywood shutters insulate windows.

Made-to-Order Roller Shades Block Exterior Light

If your goal is to black out windows in Dallas for optimal privacy and darkness, use custom roller shades. This popular window treatment can be created with a sturdy, non-transparent material with an opaque color or pattern to prevent all sunlight from shining through them.  If you get a custom-crafted treatment, your window treatment rep will record your exact window dimensions and ensure the new treatments are exactly right for your window size so that there is little to no gapping. As you lower your roller shades, they will completely cover the window opening and won’t leave any space for sunlight to peek through.

Installing customized room darkening roller shades will also improve your home’s insulation ability. A dark color and perfect fit are great at covering up the hot sun and cilly drafts. You’ll feel cozier in during the wintertime and more comfortable in summer with your dark inducing shades, and you could see some savings on energy expenses.

Roller shades are good looking as well. The term “blackout” doesn’t mean the color needs to be dark. These window treatments are available in colors ranging from black to white in various designs to match your decor. With a thick roller shade, you get a window covering that is both stylish and effective. Blackout roller shades are a fashionable way to prevent natural light when an absence of light is required for resting, watching TV, or to improve the comfort of a space.
