The Makeover

Dual function shades were exactly what Capree of Curbly was searching for when remodeling her eclectic style bedroom. After speaking with Blinds.com Designer Josh, she found the Premium Blackout Cell Shades to be a great choice with awesome hidden features.

Because the position of the bedroom doesn’t let in as much light as Capree would like, she painted her room a pale, matte pink to brighten up the room. Adding colorful pieces like pictures, terrariums and a color block duvet brought life into the space.

Depending on Capree’s preference, she can have a shade that lets in natural light or a complete blackout shades for a private, insulated, dark room great for relaxation and sleep.The trilight option gives you 2 shades in 1. On top is a sheer pleated shade that lets in lots of light,while protecting furnishing from UV rays. Below is a blackout cellular shade that turns the bedroom into an ultimate sleep cave. Either fabric can be expanded to cover the entire window or anywhere in between for adjustable light control. These shades also have fabric coating on the head, medium and bottom rails that match the rest of the shade. They’re the perfect choice for a bedroom that needs lots of versatility.

Capree says:

The best part is the sheer layer that drops down from the top. So, during the day we can have beautiful filtered light and at night block out street lights. They are the perfect window covering for a bedroom! (I asked my husband what his favorite part about the entire bedroom makeover was and it was the shades!)
