What’s the difference between room darkening and blackout?
Room darkening shades minimize most incoming light, while blackout material blocks 100% of natural light from coming into the room.
What’s a privacy liner?
A privacy liner can be added to many of the light filtering products we have so you can add an extra layer of privacy without entirely blocking incoming light.
What’s a blackout liner?
You can add a blackout liner to your blinds to get the style you want, while still enjoying the advantages of blackout shades – ideal for bedrooms, nurseries and home theatre rooms.
Do you offer Smart Blinds?
Yes, many of our motorized blinds and shades are compatible with Alexa, Google Home and more.
Can I upgrade to a Smart Blinds system after I’ve purchased?
If you have decided to upgrade your motorized shades to our Smart Blinds system after you’ve already installed your new blinds, we may be able to help. Contact our customer service team for details on your specific product.
