Roller blackout blinds are the most popular choice for media rooms. These sleek shades keep out lots of light for a true theater feel. Although they are available in black as pictured above, 10 lighter, neutral fabrics will also give you the same darkening benefits.

Choose an outside mount to prevent light gaps along the edge of the shade.

Double Cell Blackout Shades

Cellular shades can be made for nearly any size window, in hundreds of colors, and they have supreme blackout benefits. Blackout cell shades are lined inside with mylar so they don’t let in any light, and give your room extra insulation against outside temperatures.

If the man cave can’t be a pitch black “cave” in reality, think about light filtering window treatments. Cellular shades in a light filtering fabric will allow soft natural light to enter the room without the harsh glare that comes from an uncovered window.

Signature Solar Shades

These shades are popular in restaurants and businesses because they keep out glare and heat without blocking natural light or the view. Choose a fabric with a tight weave (1%-3% openness) for partial darkening and a visible view. Choose the motorized option for even easier light control.
