Do blackout shades block out 100% of incoming light?

The purpose of blackout shades is to block light from entering a room. There are possibilities of light seeping in through the sides and top of the shade. To guarantee 100% light blockage, we recommend installing with side channels or outside mount installations. One of our designers can help you determine which is best for you.
