Window treatments for your bedroom have to do more than only look good. They have to perform too.
A dark room is necessary for getting a good night’s sleep, and according to the Sleep Foundation, blackout window treatments can help with creating a ideal environment. Some can even boost your comfort by adding a layer of increased insulation at the window that boosts energy efficiency.
No two houses are identical in Austin, so why settle for off-the-shelf window treatments? When you get in touch with Louver Shop of Austin, you’ll be paired with a local design professional in Austin. During your free consultation, we’ll help you pick and create the right custom window treatments for your residence.
Meanwhile, let’s go through our favorites for best window treatments for bedrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Whether you choose wood or polymer, plantation shutters deliver a timeless appearance for your bedroom. If you are seeking to add softness or a small bit of more color, you can pair shutters with curtains.
With a thick frame and louvers that shut tightly together, shutters set the standard in both blackout capabilities and energy efficiency. Custom shutters provide the best fit, as they’re designed just for your windows. This prevents energy loss and blocks more light, keeping you cozier and waking more rested.
When you work with Louver Shop of Austin to make your interior shutters, you’ll have the ability to select the material, color, louver thickness and more. That way, your house can appear identical to how you imagine it.
2. Cellular Shades
With cellular shades from Hunter Douglas, you’ll enjoy fantastic insulating capabilities plus exclusive blackout features. Also refered to as honeycomb shades, this window treatment has insulating chambers that retain air at the window.
This barrier against air loss or gain keeps your loved ones more comfortable. And it might even help you reduce your utility bills, because your windows are known for leaking up to 30% of your residence’s heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
With Louver Shop of Austin, you can customize your Duette® honeycomb shades by selecting these exclusive selections:
- Duette Architella®—Adds increased fabric and insulating air pockets for increased comfort.
- Duette Duolite®—Includes two fabrics in one shade, like blackout and light filtering, to provide the highest flexibility.
- LightLock™—Stops sun from leaking through cord holes.
- Smart operating systems—Move your shades with merely a press of your smartphone.
3. Roller Shades
South-facing windows are fantastic for maximizing the sun’s warmth during the winter. However, that means you’ll also have additional light when it’s early. Roller shades give the blackout and room-darkening effectiveness you want, along with UV protection.
With Hunter Douglas’ expansive collection of fabrics, you can design custom shades that complement your space. You can even select two pieces of fabric in a single shade but raise each panel on its own. This gives you the ability to allow in some natural light while stopping the sun’s damaging rays during the daytime. Or to get complete blackout while asleep.
From cord-free to smart, you’ll enjoy access to a complete collection of operating systems that make raising your shades even faster. When they’re not in use, you can tuck them away in a sleek headrail to have a wider view of the outdoors.
4. Roman Shades
When you are looking for the softness of curtains but the advantage of shades, Roman shades are a great option. These shades feature rich fabrics when drawn and tidy pleats when open.
With Vignette® from Hunter Douglas, you’ll have a total range of features and customization options to help you sleep easier. These include:
- Cord-free for a sleek look that’s also best for kids and pets.
- Your choice of fold looks.
- A large collection of light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
- The option to add a blackout panel that can be raised during the day and drawn at night.
5. Sheer Shades
Our sheer shades include the smartest options of three window treatments: curtains, blinds and shades. Silhouette® window shadings have adjustable vanes that float between your option of fabrics, giving you more flexibility of daylight.
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 daylight into a warm glow. At night, you’ll have extra privacy with the additional roller shade.
