Make your Dorm Room a Sleep Sanctuary with Blackout Blinds

Phoebe Pinder | 11 Jul 2016 | Blackout

In college you don’t really have a sleep schedule. With class, studying, and maintaining a social life – you sleep when you can, and it’s not always when the sun is down. Blackout Shades will give you the light control and privacy you need to get restorative sleep.

Here are our top dorm-friendly blackout curtains, blinds and shades!

Our Economy Blackout Roller Shades are a great option for a college student budget. They give you all the same blackout benefits at a lower price!
