Keep the Light Out With Carolina Shutter & Blinds

Blackout window treatments can provide your home with countless benefits. From protecting your furnishings from UV rays to giving you privacy to helping you sleep better, you’ll feel more secure with room darkening window coverings.

Blackout blinds and shades fit snugly outside or into your window frame, giving you an additional layer of thermal insulation. There are many different types of blackout shades, depending upon where in your home you need them and your decor style.

Different Types of Blackout Shades

All window treatments can block a bit of light to a certain extent. Blackout shades and blinds are designed to keep UV rays and ambient light from seeping into your home. The type of shade you choose depends upon your window shape, decor, and light allowances.

Roman Shades

Roman shades are unfussy and classic. They consist of soft fabric that you can lower and raise with a cord that’s sewn onto the backside of the panel.

When the shade is raised, the panel collapses into horizontal folds. Soft-fold Roman shades add a touch of romance and airiness to a room’s decor. Flat Roman shades look best in contemporary or traditional settings.

Roller Shades & Blinds

Roller shades are a timeless look that consists of one piece of fabric that gets rolled into a headrail when it’s raised. When pulled down, roller shades are great for blocking light.

We offer cordless options that are safe for children if you want your shades installed in a nursery or child’s bedroom. The outside mount versions of roller shades are the most efficient version for blocking light.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb blinds or honeycomb shades, resemble honeycombs and can effectively block out light. Cellular shades are coated in a blackout, insulating fabric that light rays can’t escape.
