Window treatments for your bedroom should do more than merely look good. They have to perform too.
A dark room is needed for having a good night’s sleep, and according to the Sleep Foundation, blackout window treatments can help with creating a good environment. Some might even boost your comfort by adding a layer of increased insulation at the window that increases energy efficiency.
No two residences are the same in Albany, so why settle for ready-made window treatments? When you get in touch with Louver Shop of South Georgia, you’ll be hooked up with a local design professional in Albany. During your free consultation, we’ll help you select and make the ideal custom window treatments for your home.
Meanwhile, let’s review our top choices for best window treatments for bedrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Whether you select wood or polymer, plantation shutters provide a clean style for your bedroom. If you are looking to include softness or a small bit of extra color, it’s simple to use shutters with curtains.
With a sturdy frame and louvers that close tightly together, shutters set the standard in both blackout capabilities and energy efficiency. Custom shutters provide the tightest fit, because they’re created just for your windows. This seals against energy loss and is a barrier against light, keeping you cozier and sleeping better.
When you collaborate with Louver Shop of South Georgia to create your interior shutters, you’ll be able to select the material, color, louver thickness and more. That way, your residence can look exactly like you picture it.
2. Cellular Shades
With cellular shades from Hunter Douglas, you’ll get powerful insulating effectiveness with exclusive blackout features. Also called honeycomb shades, this window treatment includes insulating pockets that hold on to air at the window.
This barrier that prevents air loss or gain keeps you comfier. And it could even help you decrease your utility costs, as your windows are to blame for letting out up to 30% of your home’s heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
With Louver Shop of South Georgia, you can make your own Duette® honeycomb shades by including these special options:
- Duette Architella®—Adds extra fabric and insulating air cavities for more comfort.
- Duette Duolite®—Includes two fabrics in one shade, such as blackout and light filtering, to provide the greatest flexibility.
- LightLock™—Keeps sunshine from coming through cord holes.
- Smart operating systems—Move your shades with only a press of your smartphone.
3. Roller Shades
South-facing windows are excellent for maximizing the sun’s heat during cold temps. However, that means you’ll also have additional sunshine when you might want to still be sleeping. Roller shades give the blackout and room-darkening effectiveness you’re seeking, along with 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 choose two pieces of fabric in one shade but lower each panel on its own. This gives you the ability to allow in limited light while stopping the sun’s dangerous rays during the daytime. Or to enjoy complete blackout while asleep.
From cord-free to smart, you’ll enjoy access to a full range of operating systems that make raising your shades even faster. When they’re not in use, you can conceal them in a smooth headrail to enjoy a fuller view of the outdoors.
4. Roman Shades
When you want the softness of curtains but the convenience of shades, Roman shades are an excellent solution. These shades feature premium fabrics when down and neat stacks when raised.
With Vignette® from Hunter Douglas, you’ll have a total range of features and customization options to help you sleep more peacefully. These include:
- Cord-free for a contemporary look that’s also safe for kids and pets.
- Your pick of fold options.
- A wide collection of light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
- The option to have a blackout panel that can be raised during the day and drawn at night.
5. Sheer Shades
Our sheer shades include the best options of three window treatments: curtains, blinds and shades. Silhouette® window shadings include tiltable vanes that float between your selection of fabrics, providing you more management of sunshine.
Like other Hunter Douglas window treatments, you can personalize your shades by choosing a Duolite room-darkening roller shade. During the daytime, the sheer fabrics change harsh sunshine into a welcoming glow. At night, you’ll get extra privacy with the additional roller shade.
