'BLACKOUT' EXPLAINED

If you want to block out as much natural light as possible, look for Hunter Douglas window treatments with maximum light-blocking qualities that are uniquely designed to minimize light gaps, seams and rout holes such as the de-Light™feature on many of our wood and metal blinds. Keep in mind, however, that window shades and blinds cannot completely eliminate incoming light as there are almost always slight light gaps.

ROOM DARKENING FABRICS

While every Desert Winds window treatment allows you some measure of light control, some offer more room darkening benefits than others. A key consideration is fabric type and color. Sheer fabrics typically soften and filter sunlight, while semi-opaque and opaque versions almost completely block it. We say 'almost' because these fabrics darken a room but do not entirely eliminate light.

LINERS

If you are looking for optional room darkening capabilities, consider a room darkening liner available on many of our shades. The liner can be sewn directly to the face fabric or, for ultimate flexibility, can operate independently.
