Room Darkening and Blackout Shades


If you want to block out as much natural light as possible, consider Duette® Honeycomb Shades with LightLock™. This shade is the only one of its kind to provide such darkening effects.

Fitting securely into the window frame, its innovative U-shaped side channels feature a black, ridged interior surface that traps and absorbs light of all strengths and from all angles, leaving rooms nearly dark.

Gain Flexible Light Control

If you would like to be able to either block or filter light, consider a Hunter Douglas shade with Duolite® feature. Duolite® combines two fabric panels in a single shade: One of the fabric panels is made from a light filtering fabric and the other from a light blocking fabric. Both layers span the full width and height of the shade and can be moved independently, allowing for ultimate flexibility.

Duolite® is available on: 
Vignette® Modern Roman Shades 
Duette® Honeycomb Shades 
Silhouette® Window Shadings

Innovative Drapery

If you like the look of drapery and want the flexibility to either block or filter light, consider Luminette® Privacy Sheers. This innovative drapery combines a sheer fabric facing with opaque, vertical rotating vanes affixed to the back of the sheer.

When the vanes are open, the sheer fabric diffuses and disperses the sun’s rays into soft, natural light. When the vanes are closed, the opaque fabric provides the privacy of traditional draperies. Just rotate the vanes to either block the light or direct it where you would like it.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers are ideal for bedrooms with large windows or sliding glass doors.

Blinds that block more light

If you like the look of blinds but are worried about light spots, many of our Hunter Douglas wood and metal blinds come with the de-Light feature, a rout-less design that hides cord holes and blocks light more efficiently.

The de-Light feature is available on:

EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds
Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds
