Window treatments for your bedroom need to do more than just look fashionable. They have to perform too.
A dark room is critical for having a good night’s sleep, and according to the Sleep Foundation, blackout window treatments can support in producing a suitable environment. Some can even improve your comfort by adding a layer of extra insulation at the window that boosts energy efficiency.

In the meantime, let’s discuss our favorites for best window treatments for bedrooms.
1. Plantation Shutters
Whether you choose wood or polymer, plantation shutters offer a timeless appearance for your bedroom. If you are seeking to include softness or a pop of added color, it’s simple to use shutters with curtains.
With a broad frame and louvers that fit tightly together, shutters set the bar in both blackout capabilities and energy efficiency. Custom shutters offer the best fit, since they’re made just for your windows. This prevents energy loss and blocks more light, keeping you cozier and waking more rested.
When you partner with Louver Shop of Richmond to design your interior shutters, you’ll be able to choose the material, color, louver size and more. That way, your residence can look identical to how you dream about it looking.
2. Cellular Shades
With cellular shades from Hunter Douglas, you’ll receive fantastic insulating capabilities plus exclusive blackout options. Also called honeycomb shades, this window treatment comes with insulating chambers that retain air at the window.
This barrier against air loss or gain keeps your home more comfortable. And it may even help you reduce your utility expenses, since your windows are known for losing up to 30% of your residence’s heating and cooling, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
With Louver Shop of Richmond, you can make your own Duette® honeycomb shades by including these exclusive selections:
- Duette Architella®—Adds extra fabric and insulating air pockets for more comfort.
- Duette Duolite®—Includes two fabrics in one shade, like blackout and light filtering, to give the most flexibility.
- LightLock™—Keeps light from coming through cord holes.
- Smart operating systems—Raise and lower your shades with merely a press of your smartphone.
3. Roller Shades
South-facing windows are excellent for making the most of the sun’s warmth during the winter. However, that means you’ll also experience increased sunshine when it’s early. Roller shades offer the blackout and room-darkening effectiveness you’re looking for, along with UV protection.
With Hunter Douglas’ expansive collection of fabrics, you’ll be able to make custom shades that fit with your room. You can even choose two pieces of fabric in a single shade but move each panel individually. This lets you allow in limited natural light while stopping the sun’s dangerous rays during the daytime. Or to enjoy full blackout while snoozing.
From cord-free to smart, you’ll receive access to a full group of operating systems that make using your shades even simpler. When they’re not in use, you can hide them away in a small headrail to get a fuller view of the outdoors.
4. Roman Shades
When you are looking for the softness of drapery but the adjustability of shades, Roman shades are a great solution. These shades show rich fabrics when lowered and clean folds when up.
With Vignette® from Hunter Douglas, you’ll have a complete range of features and customization options to help you sleep easier. These include:
- Cord-free for a sleek appearance that’s also great for kids and pets.
- Your selection of fold options.
- A complete collection of light-filtering and room-darkening fabrics.
- The potential to have a blackout panel that can be raised during the day and down at night.
5. Sheer Shades
Our sheer shades incorporate the smartest features of three window treatments: curtains, blinds and shades. Silhouette® window shadings come with adjustable vanes that float between your choice of fabrics, offering you extra flexibility of daylight.
Similar to other Hunter Douglas window treatments, you can customize your shades by adding a Duolite room-darkening roller shade. During the daytime, the sheer fabrics change glaring sunshine into a soft glow. At night, you’ll get more privacy with the additional roller shade.
