Window Treatments for the Bedroom

Consider Your Needs for Privacy and Light Control

When choosing window treatments for a bedroom, you should first decide whether you need privacy or light control – or both!

Key considerations are fabric type and color: Sheer and light fabrics typically soften and filter sunlight, while semi-opaque and opaque darker fabrics almost completely block it.

If you like to sleep in a very dark room, we offer "blackout" window treatments that are made from light-blocking fabrics and materials and that are designed to minimize light gaps.

Another consideration, of course, is your decorating style. We offer a wide selection of window treatments that complement your décor, from shades and shadings to shutters and blinds.

Window Treatments for the Bedroom

Room Darkening Shades and Shadings

Many of our shades and shadings can be combined with a room darkening liner. The liner can be sewn directly to the face fabric, or for ultimate flexibility, it can operate independently.

Silhouette® A Deux™ Window Shadings combine a Silhouette® shading and a room-darkening roller shade in a single headrail. This setup provides you with maximum light control: from translucent to light dimming to room darkening.

Window Treatments for the Bedroom

Room Darkening Cellular Shades

Another option are Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which offer a wide selection of opaque colors and fabrics and come with the added benefit of increased energy efficiency.

Duette® shades provide maximum privacy and light control when combined with the Duolite™ feature: Two fabric panels, one made from a light filtering fabric and one from a room darkening fabric, each span the full width of the shade and can be moved independently.

Room Darkening Blinds

If you like the look of blinds but are worried about light spots, many Hunter Douglas wood and metal blinds come with the de-Light™ feature, a routless design that hides cord holes and blocks light more efficiently.

The de-Light™ feature is available on our

Parkland® Wood Blinds,

EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds and

Modern Precious Metals® Aluminum Blinds.

Window Treatments for the Bedroom

Innovative Drapery

Another great option for bedrooms are Luminette® Privacy Sheers, which combine a sheer fabric facing with opaque, vertical rotating vanes affixed to the back of the sheer.

This innovative drapery is engineered to do more:

  • When the vanes are open, the sheer fabric diffuses and disperses the sun’s rays into soft, natural light.
  • The vanes can be rotated to direct the light where you'd like it.
  • When the vanes are closed, the opaque fabric provides the privacy of traditional draperies.

Bedroom Shutters

Shutters are a beautiful option when your main goals are privacy and light filtering, but less so room darkening.

Our classic plantation shutters come in a wide variety of long-lasting materials and finishes. Choose from:

Heritance® Hardwood Shutters,

Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters, and

NewStyle® Hybrid Shutters.
