Room Darkening VS Blackout
The difference between room darkening and blackout describes the environment of the room simply being darkened, or the light being completely blocked out. There are a number of factors that can influence whether your room is darkened, or if you have it ultra-dark. The opacity of the fabric plays a large role, as does the type of window shades you select. The make-up of the windows can also dictate the way the shades darken the space.
One of our most popular features, due to the ability to experience light-filtering and room darkening shades in one headrail, is Dual Shades. Sit back, and relax, as the front, light-filtering shades invite softened light and a dynamic view. Then, when you’re ready to darken thew room, lower the blackout roller shades. These window shades lower in place behind the front ones, removing the entering light.
Light gaps are slivers of light that can show up along the edges of lowered room darkening shades on bright days. If you have concerns about blocking out light entirely during the day, there a few details to consider. The type of blackout shades you select can increase or decrease the amount of light. The window frame and how the shades are mounted can contribute. With the LightLock system, the installed U-channels seal out the incoming light for complete darkness. Some homeowners also like the idea of using draperies, layered at the edges to block the light.
