Also known as Room Darkening Shades but slightly different, blackout shades do just that - they blackout a room by completely blocking sunlight from entering a window. When ShadeMonster’s blackout shades are properly installed, they can transform an otherwise bright room into almost completely dark space, perfect for sleep or family movie time. During the day, blackout shades will allow a “halo” of light around its outer edges to provide a degree of visibility but eliminate glare on TV screens, computer monitors, and other reflective surfaces.
ShadeMonster’s blackout shades are most often used in bedrooms, home theatres, living rooms, baby nurseries, home offices and dark rooms for photographers, but are perfect for any room in the home that you’d enjoy darkness in.
The benefits of blackout shades are numerous; like its sister, the solar shade, blackout shades can protect furniture, rugs, hardwood floors, and other home furnishings from UV damage as well as offering an added level of privacy from passersby. Blackout shades are very good at blocking sunlight from entering a room, improving temperature control by lowering its average temperature and saving money on home cooling costs.
