Stop Light Seepage
Most window treatments have a small section near the top of the window frame where light seeps in. Adding a cornice to your window is an excellent way to prevent this. Achieve full blackout by pairing a cornice with drapery.

EXPLORE BLACKOUT WINDOW TREATMENTS
The Shade Store offers blackout materials for Roller Shades and Cellular Shades and blackout lining for many of our Roman Shade, Woven Wood Shade or Drapery materials. To add blackout lining, simply select ‘Blackout’ in the Lining segment of our customization process. Our Wood Blinds are also great room-darkening window treatments — just tilt the slats for darkness — and our Cornices prevent light seepage at the top of your windows. Please note, Wood Blinds will darken your spaces but will not provide complete blackout. Keep in mind, you will have light seepage where the slats meet. Adding a decorative tape during the customization process will cover the ladder holes for additional light coverage, but still not provide complete blackout.
WHAT ARE BLACKOUT WINDOW TREATMENTS?Our Blackout Roller Shades and Blackout Cellular Shades are made with special materials that block 99% of natural light from entering through your windows. Blackout lining is a fabric that can be added to the back of many of our Roman Shade and Drapery materials to transform them into blackout window treatments.
