The best window treatments for blocking light are blackout curtains and roman shades. These will ensure you get a restful sleep by preventing any light from entering your bedroom. But don’t get the wrong idea. Blackout curtains and shades don’t just come in dark and brooding colors. They can be just as stylish as they are effective at blocking sunlight—you’ll find plenty of fabulous options in our collection.
Another route you could take is adding blackout lining to your drapes and shades. If you already have curtains in your master bedroom, or you’ve found a fabric that you love but it doesn’t block light, blackout lining is a quick, easy, and affordable solution.

Privacy is imperative in your bedroom. If your bedroom windows overlook neighbors or a busy street, curtains are a great option to block the view and create a private space.
If privacy is your goal, be sure to avoid any standalone sheer window treatments. However, if you do want to use sheer curtains for your bedroom for aesthetic reasons, we have a few solutions to help you get the look you love while maintaining your privacy:
- Layer with sheers. Consider learning how to layer two sets of curtains. While the top curtain is pulled open, your back layer—the sheer curtain—will filter in natural light. This will allow you to enjoy the sheer look when you want it and complete privacy when the top layer is closed.
- Roman Shades. Roman shades act as both a drape and a blind, making them the perfect option to layer behind your front sheer selection.

Although the aesthetics of your bedroom window treatments are largely a matter of personal choice and your décor style, we have a few tips to help you get the best of your curtains and shades.
First, we recommend balancing solids with patterns. For instance, if you tend to buy patterned bed linens, or have a patterned window bench seat - consider solid drapes — and vice versa — to avoid pattern overload.
Next, it’s important that you choose drapery that goes with the overall mood of the room:
- For a modern look, consider contemporary stylings such as grommet tops or ripplefold drapes.
- For a traditional look, consider pinch pleat drapes.
And finally, choose the perfect fabric based on your room’s décor:
- For a relaxed look, we recommend linens and cottons.
- For a more dressy and formal look, check out our silks and velvets.
For a cohesive look, add some accessories that coordinate with your drapes. Spiffy Spools provides more than just custom curtains—we design cushions and pillow covers, bed runners, curtain tiebacks, valances, and more in the same fabric as your new drapes. Small but thoughtful details like these will really bring your master bedroom together.
