In this article, Beautiful Windows – with a showroom conveniently located in Davie, Florida (FL) – is here to help you decide whether Hunter Douglas blackout shades are perfect for your bedroom. We proudly carry the full line of Hunter Douglas window treatments.
Blackout shades are a great addition to your bedroom, especially during the long days of summer. Living in Florida can be hard when it comes to summer. Not only is it incredibly hot, but the days are also much longer. This can be a problem when it comes to trying to go to sleep at night. When it is still bright until after nine o’clock at night, that can make it difficult to fall asleep, or even just to relax in bed. Even if you are just trying to relax and watch a movie in your bedroom, the sun can make that difficult by creating harsh glare on the screen. Blackout shades are the perfect solution to this problem.
Hunter Douglas offers a variety of options when it comes to room-darkening window treatments. Though every product they carry will provide you with at least some light control properties, there are some that will be much more darkening than others. One of the most important factors to consider is the fabric type and color. A sheerer fabric isn’t going to darken your room anywhere close to as much as an opaquer fabric. A completely opaque fabric will almost completely block out all light.
If you are looking to block out as much light as possible, which will make your bedroom so much more comfortable, you should also consider some of Hunter Douglas’s customization options. Many of the wood and metal blinds we offer feature the de-Light™ feature, which minimizes light gaps and rout holes. Keep in mind that it is impossible to block out every single bit of light, but this will definitely maximize your room-darkening. For additional room-darkening, you can also choose to add either an attached or independent room-darkening liner to most of our available shades.
Some options to choose from to make your bedroom both more comfortable and more stylish include Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Parkland® Wood Blinds, EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds, Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds, Silhouette® Window Shadings, Provenance® Woven Wood Shades, and Alustra® Woven Textures.
All of these products are available with so many customization options. You can choose from tons of different materials, fabrics, colors, and more. Hunter Douglas offers a variety of options for almost every aspect of your new window treatments. You can even customize the operating system that your shades or blinds will be installed with to fit your home’s needs. You can even choose the PowerView® Motorization system which allows you to control your room-darkening shades from the palm of your hand, letting you open and close your shades without even moving from your bed.
