The Best Blackout Shades for Energy Efficiency

If you want a two-in-one shade, then you will love our Duette® Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas. Featuring a cellular construction, these shades trap air right at your windows to not only prevent energy loss, but also keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter without raising your energy bills. In addition to that, Duette® Honeycomb Shades also offer room-darkening capabilities for unparalleled darkness and privacy whenever you wish. This is thanks to the LightLock system. This system works via a nifty side channel design that absorbs or deflect nearly all incoming light. This is a wonderful feature for media rooms and bedrooms that see a lot of sun throughout the day.

The Best Blackout Shades for Minimalist Homes

If you want a blackout shade that is both powerful and minimalistic, then our Hunter Douglas Vignette® Modern Roman Shades are for you. With uniform folds, these shades offer a clean, sleek look at each window in your home while offering stellar blackout capabilities. Depending on your lighting preferences, Vignette Duolite® Shades combine a light-filtering or sheer front shade with a built-in room-darkening back panel all within one roller shade. This offers an uncluttered, un-bulky appearance at your windows.

The Best Blackout Shades for Beloved Window Treatments

Okay, so these are not technically blackout shades, but when combined with your current window treatments, Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Side Panels & Drapery can provide ample reprieve from artificial and natural lighting. This is also a great option for those who love their current window treatments, but want added light control in their home.
