When it comes to designing the perfect bedroom, your choice of window treatment plays an important role in how you experience the space. The right shade provides privacy, helps control natural light, and affects your room’s ambiance– in addition to contributing to your space’s overall style. 

As shade experts, we understand the impact that choosing the right style of shade has on your bedroom. That’s why we created a guide to bedroom window treatments that highlights 5 styles we recommend to our customers. Let’s dive in. 

1. Blackout Cellular Shades

For those who sleep best in a space that’s completely dark, blackout cellular shades are for you. These shades are designed to block out nearly all incoming light, making them ideal for spaces, like the bedroom, where the ability to block out light from the sun, streetlamps, or car traffic is essential. 

Blackout cellular shades are also excellent for insulating against heat and cold. This is due to their honeycomb-shaped cells, which trap air and provide a barrier against incoming sunlight and cold air. For more information on cellular shades, check out our guide to the subject

2. Cordless and Motorized Cellular Shades

Cordless cellular shades offer a clean look and are safer in homes with children and pets because they eliminate the hazard of dangling cords. For added convenience, motorized cellular shades can be adjusted with the touch of a button– perfect for hard-to-reach windows and general ease of use. 

3. Top-down/Bottom-up Cellular Shades
