If you want to block out as much natural light as possible, consider Duette® Honeycomb Shades with LightLock™. This shade is the only one of its kind to provide such darkening effects.

Fitting securely into the window frame, its innovative U-shaped side channels feature a black, ridged interior surface that traps and absorbs light of all strengths and from all angles, leaving rooms nearly dark.


If you would like to be able to either block or filter light, consider a Hunter Douglas shade with Duolite® feature. Duolite® combines two fabric panels in a single shade: One of the fabric panels is made from a light filtering fabric and the other from a room darkening fabric. Both layers span the full width and height of the shade and can be moved independently, allowing for ultimate flexibility.

Duolite® is available on:
Vignette® Modern Roman Shades
Duette® Honeycomb Shades
Silhouette® Window Shadings

If you like the look of drapery and want the flexibility to either block or filter light, consider Luminette® Privacy Sheers. This innovative drapery combines a sheer fabric facing with opaque, vertical rotating vanes affixed to the back of the sheer.

When the vanes are open, the sheer fabric diffuses and disperses the sun’s rays into soft, natural light. When the vanes are closed, the opaque fabric provides the privacy of traditional draperies. Just rotate the vanes to either block the light or direct it where you would like it.

Luminette® Privacy Sheers are ideal for bedrooms with large windows or sliding glass doors. These sheers are opaque when closed and sheer when opened.
