Is your sunny nursery making it hard for your toddler to snooze in the afternoon? Is a streetlight bugging you or the sun waking you up just a bit too early in the morning?
Good news—blackout fabrics completely block the light outside your window so you—and your kids!—sleep easier. It’s no wonder blackout fabrics are a must-have for every bedroom (and your media room too)!
Here are our favorite blackout options. Discover which ones are right for your family?
Bali Cellular Shades
Bali Cellular Shades in blackout fabrics are durable, multi-tasking shades that not only help you sleep, but also save you money on your energy bills. These expertly engineered custom cellular shades trap air in their honeycomb-shaped cells to add a layer of insulation to your home all year.
Available in both single and double cell construction, Bali Cellular Shades come in a variety of versatile neutrals and modern colors you’ll love.
Take your shades from day to night with ease! Sun up/sun down shades combine two Bali Cellular Shades into one versatile window treatment. One fabric is the top of the shade, and the other is the bottom; each is controlled separately.
For a day-to-night shade, choose one sheer or light-filtering fabric and one blackout fabric. Then raise or lower the daytime one during the daytime and the blackout fabric when the sun sets (or the movie starts!). Now you get the best of both worlds!
Looking to switch it up even more? A combination shade is available with a Bali Cellular Shade and a Bali Pleated Shade.
And never fear—we have your wide windows covered! VertiCell™ Cellular Shades are available in blackout options too.
Bali Roller Shades
Bali Roller Shades are a fresh take on an established classic. Though they’ve been used in homes for decades, these custom roller shades never feel old.
Bali Roller Shades in blackout fabrics are available in warm neutrals and simple patterns for every style. And with custom hems, trim, and beading to choose from, you can create a custom shade perfect for every member of your family.
Bali Dual Shades are a clever two-in-one shade solution for roller shades. Combine a sheer or light-filtering fabric with a blackout fabric for the ultimate light control. Shades are combined one in front of the other so you can see parts of both or only one at a time. Each is controlled separately. Bali Dual Shades can also combine a solar and roller shade—perfect for family rooms!
Bali Roman Shades
Bali Classic Roman Shades and Bali Tailored Roman Shades offer two different takes on a blackout option. (Sorry, we couldn’t choose just one!)
Bali Classic Roman Shades made with blackout fabrics come in two styles with subtly patterned neutrals. You’ll love these if you’re looking for a more structured Roman shade look.
Bali Tailored Roman Shades are handcrafted from an extensive fabric collection of timeless neutrals and vibrant patterns. These shades come with a standard liner, so upgrade to the blackout liner when you order. You’ll love these if you’re looking for a softer Roman shade look (or want a larger pattern—this fabric collection offers several stunning options!).
If you want a layered look, choose a blind or more gently diffusing shade as a base and add Bali Drapery with a blackout liner. Then simply close the drapery at night. Bali Drapery is made with the same fabrics as Bali Tailored Roman Shades, so consider both possibilities when you see fabrics you love!
For the best blackout effect with shades alone, mount your shades outside the window casing. An outside-mount eliminates any pesky light from getting in around your shade. Learn how to measure for an outside-mount installation.
