Store-bought window coverings claim they block all light, allowing for insulation, privacy, and of course, darkness. However, they won’t match your windows as sunlight sneaks in around the edges. Instead, install customized roller shades or interior shutters to black out windows in Phoenix. Custom-crafted roller shades can be thick enough and will be made for a precise fit to prevent light from entering, while faux wood plantation shutters provide superior insulation.

When you’re looking to black out windows in Phoenix for darkness or privacy, install made-to-order room-darkening roller shades. These window treatments can be made with a thick material that is opaque enough to prevent all sunlight from invading the space.  If you get a custom-crafted treatment, your window treatment professional will measure your windows and make sure your new products fit perfectly within your window frame to prevent unwanted gaps around the borders.
