We find that many people choose the type of fabric based on the room that they are buying for.
We frequently get the question, how much can people see in and out? We’ve taken some photos of one of our team member’s shades at home to show you!
The amount of visible light that Light Filtering shades allow in really depends on the color of fabric that you choose. Although all light filtering fabrics are white to the exterior, the interior color may affect how much light enters the room. If you purchase a white shade, you will have more light in the room than one that is for example, Dark brown to the interior. Request free fabric samples so that you can hold them up to the window and see how much light the color you love lets in!
All Black out shades block 99% of visible light. Adding the sidetrack system will block the light gaps that are present with a shade that does not have tracks. The foil within the cells not only blocks light, but it helps block the outside air off the window surface from entering your room. The foil is not visible from the interior or exterior of your room. Black Out shades are always white to the outside.
