Looking for 95" tall 112" wide BLACKOUT.


Is it best to get on large shade or perhaps 2 or 3 panels?

I had one made for me in my old hpuse that was larger than th eone that you are looking for from a company called Solarflective...it was motorized, tensioned, etc.

One shade will do a much better job of blocking the light and, in my view, look better especially since one needs to use channels at the edges to truly block the light and 2 channels will look better than 4 to 6 channels...

+1 on the single large blackout. As mentioned above, edge light has to be dealt with and and one large will be substantially easier in this instance.


I'd be careful of using lift strings on that large of a shade. You probably want motorized if the budget allows, or if not, a continuous cord loop.


Here's one example of the cost of manual. You can put in your demensions and check prices. As you can see, a shade that large is fairly expensive.
