The Many Benefits of Blackout Window Shades

There are many factors to consider when choosing window treatments – and blackout shades are a great option for those who want to block out light and create a dark, restful environment. While there are different types of blackout shades on the market, perhaps the best – and most convenient – option are roller shades made with blackout material. AAA Blind & Shutter Factory proudly offers these types of shades to homeowners and business owners in the Myrtle Beach area. 

What are Blackout Roller Shades?

Roller shades are a type of window covering that can be used to block out light. Blackout roller shades are made with a thicker fabric that is designed to prevent light from coming through. They are often used in bedrooms or home theaters, as they can create a dark room for watching movies or sleeping. These types of shades can be operated manually or with a motorized system. 

In addition to being convenient, blackout shades have many great benefits, including:

Block Out Light

Installing blackout roller shades is a great way to block out sunlight and get a good night’s sleep. They’re also perfect for reducing glare on TVs and computer screens, making them ideal for bedrooms and home offices. 

Save Money on Electric Bills

If you’re looking for a way to save money on your electric bill, blackout roller shades can be a wonderful option. By blocking out sunlight, they can help keep your home cooler in the summer, which means your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard (and use as much energy). In the winter, they can also help keep heat from escaping through your windows, which can also lead to lower energy bills.

Privacy & Comfort

Not only will these types of roller shades block out light and heat, but they’re also fantastic for providing privacy and comfort to your home or office. That’s because these shades are thick enough to keep out light and stop your neighbors from seeing inside of your windows. Also, in addition to blocking out heat, blackout shades can also help block out noise from outside. Overall, they make your indoor space comfortable and relaxing.
