Window treatments for your bedroom need to do more than just look good. They need to perform too.
A dark room is essential for getting a good night’s sleep, and according to the Sleep Foundation, blackout window treatments can help with creating that ideal environment. Some can even help improve your comfort by adding a layer of extra insulation at the window that boosts energy efficiency.
No two homes are the same in Gainesville, so why settle for off-the-shelf window treatments? When you work with Louver Shop, you’ll be paired with a local design consultant in Gainesville. During your free consultation, we’ll help you choose and design the right custom window treatments for your space.
In the meantime, let’s review our favorites for best window treatments for bedrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Whether you choose wood or polymer, plantation shutters provide a classic, clean look for your bedroom. If you want to add softness or a little bit of extra color, it’s easy to pair shutters with curtains.
With a thick frame and louvers that fit tightly together, shutters set the gold standard in both blackout capabilities and energy efficiency. Custom shutters provide the best fit, since they’re made just for your windows. This seals against energy loss and blocks more light, keeping you more comfortable and sleeping better.
When you work with Louver Shop to design your interior shutters, you’ll be able to choose the material, color, louver size and more. That way, your home can look just like you picture it.
2. Cellular Shades
With cellular shades from Hunter Douglas, you’ll get powerful insulating capabilities plus exclusive blackout features. Also known as honeycomb shades, this window treatment has insulating pockets that trap air at the window.
This barrier against air loss or gain keeps you more comfortable. And it may even help you lower your energy bill, because your windows are responsible for leaking up to 30% of your home’s heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
With Louver Shop, you can customize your Duette® honeycomb shades by adding these exclusive features:
- Duette Architella®—Adds more fabric and insulating air pockets for increased comfort.
- Duette Duolite®—Includes two fabrics in one shade, like blackout and light filtering, to provide the most flexibility.
- LightLock™—Blocks light from seeping through cord holes.
- Smart operating systems—Move or schedule your shades with just a tap of your smartphone.
3. Roller Shades
South-facing windows are great for making the most of the sun’s warmth during the winter. However, that means you’re also dealing with more light in the early morning hours. Roller shades offer the blackout and room-darkening capabilities you want, plus UV protection.
With Hunter Douglas’ wide collection of fabrics, you’ll be able to design custom shades that complement your room. You can even add two pieces of fabric in one shade but move each panel independently. This allows you to allow in some light while blocking the sun’s damaging rays during the daytime. Or to enjoy full blackout while sleeping.
From cord-free to smart, you’ll have access to a full range of operating systems that make using your shades even easier. When they’re not in use, you can hide them away in a sleek headrail to enjoy a wider view of the outdoors.
4. Roman Shades
When you want the softness of curtains but the convenience of shades, Roman shades are a great solution. These shades display rich fabrics when drawn and stack into neat pleats when raised.
With Vignette® from Hunter Douglas, you’ll enjoy a wide range of features and customization options to help you sleep easier. These include:
- Cord-free for a modern look that’s also safe for kids and pets.
- Your choice of fold styles.
- A large collection of light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
- The option to add a blackout panel that can be raised during the day and lowered at night.
5. Sheer Shades
Our sheer shades combine the best features of three window treatments: curtains, blinds and shades. Silhouette® window shadings have adjustable vanes that float between your choice of fabrics, giving you more control of daylight.
Like other Hunter Douglas window treatments, you can customize your shades by adding a Duolite room-darkening roller shade. During the daytime, the sheer fabrics transform bright daylight into a warm, welcoming glow. At night, you’ll have more privacy with the additional roller shade.
