Window treatments for your bedroom have to do more than merely look fashionable. They have to perform too.
A dark room is essential for having a good night’s sleep, and according to the Sleep Foundation, blackout window treatments can support in creating a good environment. Some might even improve your comfort by adding a layer of extra insulation at the window that enhances energy efficiency.
No two residences are the same in Boston, so why compromise for off-the-shelf window treatments? When you work with Louver Shop of Boston, you’ll be paired with a local design pro in Boston. During your free consultation, we’ll help you choose and make the best custom window treatments for your residence.
For the moment, let’s review our top choices for best window treatments for bedrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Whether you want wood or polymer, plantation shutters deliver a clean appearance for your bedroom. If you are seeking to include softness or a pop of added color, you can pair shutters with curtains.
With a broad frame and louvers that shut tightly together, shutters set the gold standard in both blackout capabilities and energy efficiency. Custom shutters offer the best fit, because they’re designed just for your windows. This stops energy loss and is a barrier against light, keeping you comfier and sleeping better.
When you collaborate with Louver Shop of Boston to design your interior shutters, you’ll have the ability to select the material, color, louver size and more. That way, your home can look identical to how you picture it.
2. Cellular Shades
With cellular shades from Hunter Douglas, you’ll receive powerful insulating effectiveness in addition to exclusive blackout upgrades. Also known as honeycomb shades, this window treatment includes insulating chambers that keep air at the window.
This barrier that stops air loss or gain keeps your home comfier. And it could even help you reduce your heating and cooling bills, because your windows are to blame for leaking up to 30% of your residence’s heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
With Louver Shop of Boston, you can customize your Duette® honeycomb shades by including these unique features:
- Duette Architella®—Adds increased fabric and insulating air pockets for more comfort.
- Duette Duolite®—Includes two fabrics in a single shade, like blackout and light filtering, to provide the greatest flexibility.
- LightLock™—Blocks sun from seeping through cord holes.
- Smart operating systems—Schedule your shades with only a tap of your smartphone.
3. Roller Shades
South-facing windows are excellent for maximizing the sun’s warmth during chilly temperatures. However, that means you’re also dealing with additional sun in the early morning hours. Roller shades deliver the blackout and room-darkening performance you’re looking for, in addition to UV protection.
With Hunter Douglas’ large collection of fabrics, you’ll have the ability to design custom shades that complement your home. You can even select two pieces of fabric in an individual shade but move each panel individually. This allows you to allow in some daylight while stopping the sun’s hazardous rays during the daytime. Or to enjoy total blackout while sleeping.
From cord-free to smart, you’ll enjoy access to a full collection of operating systems that make lowering your shades even simpler. When they’re not in use, you can hide them away in a sleek headrail to get a wider view of the outdoors.
4. Roman Shades
When you are seeking the softness of drapes but the convenience of shades, Roman shades are an excellent option. These shades display rich fabrics when down and neat stacks when up.
With Vignette® from Hunter Douglas, you’ll get a complete range of features and customization possibilities to help you sleep better. These include:
- Cord-free for a modern style that’s also safe for kids and pets.
- Your pick of fold options.
- A wide collection of light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
- The possibility to have a blackout panel that can be hidden during the day and down at night.
5. Sheer Shades
Our sheer shades incorporate the most-loved options of three window treatments: curtains, blinds and shades. Silhouette® window shadings include adjustable vanes that stay between your selection of fabrics, giving you additional flexibility of daylight.
Like other Hunter Douglas window treatments, you can personalize your shades by choosing a Duolite room-darkening roller shade. During daylight hours, the sheer fabrics convert harsh daylight into a warm glow. At night, you’ll have added privacy with the additional roller shade.
