Blackout window treatments are becoming an increasingly popular option for window coverings. However, if you’ve been looking around at your options, you may have come across the term “room darkening” as well. While similar to blackout window treatments, room-darkening blinds and shades don’t quite block out the light at quite the same level. True blackout window shades can block out 100% of the light from outside, while room-darkening shades typically refer to window treatments that block out around 95-99% of the light.

Why Choose Blackout Window Treatments

Room-darkening and blackout shades have a variety of useful applications. Many homeowners prefer these types of window treatments in their bedrooms, as blocking the sunlight can help create the best environment for restful sleep. Blackout window treatments are also great for rooms with televisions, as these shades can create a “movie theater” ambiance and eliminate any harsh glares that might occur when sunlight is streaming in through your windows.

Additionally, because room-darkening and blackout window treatments effectively block out so much sunlight, these shades also offer insulating benefits that make them an energy-efficient option for your home.

I have come to rely on the staff at Hirshfield’s Design Resource for their fabulous customer service and variety of products. The service is always friendly, timely and professional.

As a designer, their advice on window treatments is forever appreciated, and they are always able to show me something new in the displays and samples. They provide quick and accurate estimates, measurements and suggestions when I am struggling with a budget. The final product and installation has been nothing but flawless on every project.

I truly value what they continue to bring to our design community!

Want to give a shout out to Madi. Madi took a pretty awful experience and made it right for us. We had ordered cordless blinds and over half of them did not work right or hang right. Madi helped us return all the blinds and reordered a new product for us which we are very happy with. Madi was persistent in helping us get the issues we experience resolved.

She is always so warm and friendly and definitely puts her customers first. Thanks Madi you are a gem! Also want to add that my overall experience with Hirshfield's in St. Cloud has been an excellent experience. They made things right and put their customers first!

Greg is amazing! We have worked with him throughout the years on both existing homes and new builds and we could not be happier. One of the things I appreciate about Greg is that he gets us to really think about how we will use our space, not just now but in the future when the kids get older. This has honestly has saved us from making some pretty big design mistakes. Finding durable fabrics and pieces is important to us while we have a preschooler running around, yet on the other hand, our teens have a different use for the space.

He is able to make it all work together seamlessly by understanding the space and its function. He has a fresh and distinctive feel to his work and builds in a variety of styles. I HIGHLY recommend working with Greg out of the gate, you will not be sorry. I honestly don't know what we do without his help;)
