Room-Darkening WIndow Treatment FAQs

What types of room-darkening products do you offer?down arrow

We have many different styles of room-darkening products including roller shades, Roman shades, woven shades, drapes, shutters, and more. These treatments can be paired together to create a layered look with flexible light control & room-darkening capabilities.

Which rooms are room-darkening window treatments needed in?down arrow

That depends on your lifestyle and how you use your home but generally speaking, room-darkening window treatments are most often used in bedrooms, nurseries, and home theaters (or wherever your primary television is located).

Room-darkening treatments in bedrooms are especially helpful for individuals who work nightshift and need to sleep during the daytime. They are also our recommended choice for bedrooms that have windows that face streetlights, landscape lights, or high-trafficked streets.

Your Drapery Street designer will help you determine which rooms in your home could benefit from room-darkening treatments and which only need light-filtering treatments.

Can I achieve complete darkness/total blackout?down arrow

No room-darkening products can achieve total darkness, even those labeled as "blackout" treatments. However, we can get your room as close to complete darkness as possible with our state-of-the-art room darkening products & systems. We can also layer products (for example, room-darkening shades paired with room darkening draperies) for unparalleled room-darkening performance.

What is LightLock™?down arrow

The LightLock™ system from Hunter Douglas is the only one of its kind to provide such powerful room-darkening effects. It uses U-shaped side channels that blend seamlessly into the window frame and absorbs & deflecting incoming light from all angles.

The LightLock™ system is available on several Hunter Douglas products including cellular shades and Silhouette® sheer shades.

What is the Duolite® system?down arrow

The Duolite® system allows you to enjoy room-darkening and light-filtering capabilities with one treatment. It features two shades on a single roller—a sheer or light-filtering front shade and an opaque or room-darkening back shade.

If you want complete control over your light and privacy, consider the Duolite® system.

Do you have room-darkening treatments that can be used on doors?down arrow

Yes. We have many different room-darkening treatments that can be applied to doors.

I have an angled or round window. How can I block the light from it?down arrow

We have many different room-darkening options for uniquely-shaped windows including arched, angled, and round, windows. Our treatments are completely custom and can be fit to the unique shape and size of your window. Your Drapery Street designer will help you decide which product will give you the style and the room-darkening capabilities you want.

Can room-darkening treatments be motorized?down arrow

Yes! Our room-darkening treatments can be motorized to open with the touch of a button or the sound of your voice.

We can integrate your room-darkening treatments with your home automation system. Compatible systems include Google Assistant, Alexa, Apple HomeKit, Crestron®, Logitech®, Lutron, Control4®, Elan®, IFTTT, URC®, RTI, and Savant®.

Visit one of our showrooms to experience motorized window treatments in action. Our interactive, full-size displays allow you to operate many types of treatments, from shades to shutters, using PowerView motorization.

Do your room-darkening shades have top-down/bottom-up operation?down arrow

…you don’t HAVE to put the same window treatments on every window in the home 🤯 

Would it shock you to know that we consider each space, as well as who is using that space, before we recommend specific coverings? 😮🐶🛌👶🎥

In this beautiful home we used a few types of manual shades, motorized draperies, motorized shades & outdoor screens 🪄

Sometimes it takes 2️⃣ 

Layering window treatments is a great way to add more functionality to your windows — allowing you to unlock more light control and privacy options. 

A sheer woven shade with drapes, for instance, provides both light-filtering and room-darkening options. 

Ready to find your perfection combination of treatments? Request a complimentary design consultation (link in bio).
Opacity is the amount of light that passes through a window treatment. More light = less privacy. Less light = more privacy. 

🚫 If opacity is overlooked, you could end up with bedrooms with not enough privacy and too much light to sleep well, or bathrooms & dining rooms with unnecessary light-blocking capabilities. 

💡 If you want to maintain privacy without blocking natural light there are workarounds like top-down bottom-up shades, layering together multiple treatments of various opacities, or the @hunterdouglas Duolite® system which combines light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics into a single shade.
