How To Black Out Your Windows In Orlando

Todd Hansen

Off-the-shelf ”blackout” window coverings advertise complete light control, and will keep your room pitch black, energy-efficient, and private. The problem is, they won’t match your exact window measurements as sunlight sneaks in at the sides. Instead, install custom roller shades or plantation shutters to black out windows in Orlando. Custom roller shades are opaque and will be made for a precise fit to keep your room dark, while Polywood shutters provide superior insulation.

Custom Roller Shades Keep the Light Out

If you want to black out windows in Orlando for darkness or privacy, use custom roller shades. They can be made with a sturdy, non-transparent material with an opaque color or pattern to prevent all sunlight from entering.  If you get customized roller shades, your window treatment rep will measure your windows and order shades that are an exact fit for your opening to avoid any gaps around the edges. When you pull down your shades, they will totally cover the window opening and keep the exterior light from entering.

Using customized room darkening roller shades will assist with insulation as well. A dark color and precision fit help keep out the sun’s warmth and any chilly drafts. You’ll feel warmer in during cold months and more tolerable during hotter months with your new roller shades, and you could see some savings on energy costs.

These functional coverings are good looking as well. The term “blackout” doesn’t apply to the color of the shade. These window treatments come in colors ranging from black to white in various designs to match your decor. Room darkening material is thick enough to stop the light. Blackout roller shades are a fashionable way to prevent natural light when an absence of light is required for resting, watching TV, or keeping a room cool.
