Hi Peter279, you really don't need to use the same treatment throughout the entire house and I'd recommend you not do that. Different areas have different requirements. That said, blinds and shutters are not the best at keeping out morning light as you have discovered. Your best bet are draperies,roller or roman shades with backout lining. As far as the rest of the house, I really don't know enough to make suggestions. If you could post some pics, that would be helpful.

Hi Peter, If you are looking for just light blockage, get a blackout shade as suggested above. If you need privacy and light blockage, the shades I supply do both. Check out a few pictures, these blinds offer some great features for you.

Indeed, just this morning I bookmarked this Houzz living room that uses two different window treatments-- drapes and roman blinds-- in the same fabric in the same room. Lots of options.
