I thought for a while and decided to just remove the blinds altogether and replace them with a blackout roller shade. My office faces East. The window (large) has shutters. So my monitor screen had white lines across it. Like you, I thought of a roller shade. For myself, I got a dark (not black) mesh screen shade. Lets 4% of the light through. I got a good deal on the shade, had it motorized, and installed it between the shutter and the window. Oops! The roller tube hit the T-Posts* on the shutter. So, I took the shutter down and notched the T-Posts to clear the shade, and put the whole thing back together. Success! Now, if there should be too much glare, I just beep the shade closed. I had had all the windows n the house pre-wired during the remodel, so I just connected the shade to a power supply (in the hall closet) and all is good. I still have a lot of windows needing motorized. (Three in the dining room and kitchen are next.)Count Upp*There are six panels of the shutter, so it uses two T-posts to support e the two inner panels.
