Blackout Window Treatments for Every Room in Your Home

There is nothing worse than when you are getting ready for bed and you turn off the lights and you see a bright light shining through your window treatment. Or, you’re sitting on the couch in the living room watching your favorite sports team when you get a glare from the sun, making it impossible to see the full screen. It seems like a problem that can’t be fixed, but wait… it can. Budget Blinds® offers blackout shades that are the ideal solution for every room in your home.

Blackout is a light opacity option that can be added to most window coverings. Budget Blinds has a variety of blackout styled shades including roller shades, cellular shades, pleated shades, Roman shades, woven wood shades, and even drapery and curtains can have blackout linings. Also, Budget Blinds offers an exclusive Inspired Shades™ Collection which features a wide selection of colors and designs that can have the opacity level of the blackout. Depending on your style preference, Budget Blinds can match the specific look you need. 


Your kitchen is one of the brightest rooms in your home. Most of the time, you love having the sun shine down on you while you’re drinking your coffee and reading the paper. The sun is a wakeup call. Yet, there are times when the sun is shining so bright through your large kitchen windows while you’re slaving over a hot meal, that you can’t see, you’re sweating from all the heat, and you just want the sunshine gone! During a situation like this blackout shades are the best solution. They will allow you to block out the sun during moments of need and desperation. Also, having your blackout shades closed during peak sun hours will save money on your energy bill.


Living Room

Your living room might not be a typical place to have a blackout shade, but when you need privacy and security it is the perfect window treatment. Another reason to have a blackout shade on your living room windows is for privacy. Sometimes you think it’s fine to walk around in pajamas until you see your neighbor looking over and seeing you. Save yourself the embarrassment and have a blackout shade! It also helps when you don’t really want to have a drop-in company that comes over unannounced. A blackout shade makes it look like you’re not home just in case it’s not the right time to have guests.


The bedroom is an essential room to have blackout shades. An important reason is a privacy because you want to make sure no one can see in, especially when you have a messy room. Other than privacy, a great benefit that blackout window coverings provide is better sleep. Having the room extra dark can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep. It also helps people who work the night shift and their only option is sleeping during the day. Blackout treatments ensure a dark room that will help you get the sleep you deserve. Also, while you’re getting a wonderful night’s sleep, a blackout window covering can help keep in the heat during those cold winter months or keep the room comfortable and cool during warmer months.

Baby’s Room/Kid’s Room

Having a child is a blessing and giving them the best in life is every parent’s dream. Blackout shades can give your child the best when it comes to their room. Not only does it provide privacy and security, but it can be helpful when it comes to their much-needed sleep. For a newborn, blackout window coverings can help when the baby is sleeping, and can also help tired parents catch some Z’s while their baby sleeps! Another wonderful option that can be added to your blackout treatments is motorization.  Budget Blinds offers motorization powered by Somfy®, the world’s leading manufacturer in specialized motors for over 45 years. With a touch of a button, you can have complete darkness to ensure your child stays asleep. Also, having your window covering motorized eliminates dangerous dangling cords making them child safe. Budget Blinds stresses the importance of motorization for all your window treatments when there are children and pets living in the home. 

Entertainment Room

Blackout shades are a must in your entertainment room due to the sun’s glare. It is impossible to enjoy Super Bowl Sunday or any football game when the sun is shining through your windows making it hard to see. It’s just not right! Blackout shades will help block out any bright sunlight that is unwanted during game time. Another bonus from blackout window coverings is blocking your furnishings and you from harmful UV rays. Protecting your expensive furnishings will help save money in the long run.


A bathroom is an intimate place that needs as much privacy as possible. Blackout shades can help when you have to jump out of the tub because you forgot a towel and you don’t need anyone to accidentally see you. Motorized blackout shades are ideal for your bathroom, especially if you have hard-to-reach windows that seem impossible to cover until now. A touch of a button to close your motorized shade will eliminate any “I Spy” accidents.
