Window treatments for your bedroom should do more than only look good. They should perform too.
A dark room is essential for having a good night’s sleep, and according to the Sleep Foundation, blackout window treatments can assist with creating a suitable environment. Some may even improve your comfort by adding a layer of extra insulation at the window that enhances energy efficiency.
No two residences are alike in Birmingham, so why settle for premade window treatments? When you get in touch with Louver Shop of Birmingham, you’ll be paired with a local design pro in Birmingham. During your free consultation, we’ll help you pick and design the best custom window treatments for your residence.
Meanwhile, let’s go through our favorites for best window treatments for bedrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Whether you want wood or polymer, plantation shutters provide a clean style for your bedroom. If you are seeking to incorporate softness or a pop of more color, it’s simple to pair shutters with curtains.
With a broad frame and louvers that close tightly together, shutters set the standard in both blackout capabilities and energy efficiency. Custom shutters provide the finest fit, because they’re designed just for your windows. This stops energy loss and keeps out more light, keeping you cozier and waking more rested.
When you collaborate with Louver Shop of Birmingham to make your interior shutters, you can select the material, color, louver thickness and more. That way, your home can appear just like you imagine it.
2. Cellular Shades
With cellular shades from Hunter Douglas, you’ll enjoy great insulating capabilities plus exclusive blackout options. Also called honeycomb shades, this window treatment has insulating pockets that retain air at the window.
This barrier against air loss or gain keeps your loved ones cozier. And it could even help you decrease your heating and cooling expenses, since your windows are responsible for leaking up to 30% of your residence’s heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
With Louver Shop of Birmingham, you can customize your Duette® honeycomb shades by including these exclusive options:
- Duette Architella®—Adds extra fabric and insulating air cavities for more comfort.
- Duette Duolite®—Includes two fabrics in one shade, like blackout and light filtering, to provide the most flexibility.
- LightLock™—Stops light from coming through cord holes.
- Smart operating systems—Schedule your shades with merely a tap of your smartphone.
3. Roller Shades
South-facing windows are great for maximizing the sun’s heat during cold temps. However, that means you’re also dealing with additional sunshine when it’s early. Roller shades deliver the blackout and room-darkening effectiveness you’re looking for, together with UV protection.
With Hunter Douglas’ large collection of fabrics, you can create custom shades that fit with your space. You can even choose two pieces of fabric in a single shade but lower each panel on its own. This gives you the ability to allow in a little bit of light while blocking the sun’s dangerous rays during the daytime. Or to enjoy full blackout while sleeping.
From cord-free to smart, you’ll receive access to a full group of operating systems that make lowering your shades even simpler. When they’re not being used, you can conceal them in a small headrail to get a wider view of the outdoors.
4. Roman Shades
When you are looking for the softness of drapery but the convenience of shades, Roman shades are a great option. These shades feature premium fabrics when lowered and tidy folds when up.
With Vignette® from Hunter Douglas, you’ll have a wide range of features and customization solutions to help you sleep better. These include:
- Cord-free for a modern look that’s also best for kids and pets.
- Your selection of fold options.
- A large collection of light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
- The option to have a blackout panel that can be up during the day and down at night.
5. Sheer Shades
Our sheer shades incorporate the smartest options of three window treatments: curtains, blinds and shades. Silhouette® window shadings include tiltable vanes that float between your choice of fabrics, giving you additional flexibility of sunshine.
Like other Hunter Douglas window treatments, you can create your own shades by choosing a Duolite room-darkening roller shade. During the daytime, the sheer fabrics transform glaring sun into a light glow. At night, you’ll have extra privacy with the additional roller shade.
