Black Out Shades or Room Darkening Shades are easily available and offer you great protection against glare into your rooms.
Let’s face it…we love bright sunny days but they often interfere with the large screen TV’s of today. The glare off of window panes reflect right onto the TV screens making them difficult to watch. Not a pleasant situation on the day of the big game.
There are various solutions.
1. Honeycomb shades can be made with a black-out liner that will block out everything.
2. Roller shades have made a huge comeback and come in a variety of fabrics, many of which are blackout. There is also a rail system that is black-out pictured at the top of the post.
3. Woven Woods, Roman Shades, all have the option of liners that darken completely.
4. Draperies come in a variety of fabrics and weights and can be lined with a black-out fabric. We recommend traverse rods with the heavier draperies for ease of drawing back and forth.
5. Duolite shades offer two shades on one system. Dual roller shades also allow two shades to be installed in one headrail.
Remember you do not always need to go completely black-out and room darkening may be enough. Layering treatments is an option. Use mini-blinds for privacy installed inside the window frame then add a drapery over for extra light control.

It is difficult to install two shades inside the window frame because there usually is not enough room for both headrails.
