What Are Blackout Blinds?

Do you ever struggle to really block-out the sun from shining through your windows with your curtains and blinds? Do you find that everyday blind solutions simply aren’t doing enough to give you the privacy you need, or to prevent natural light from seeping through? It may be time to consider made to measure blackout blinds.

What Are Blackout Blinds?

Blackout blinds are designed and built to restrict the amount of light that travels through your windows, as well as how much people can see in from the outside.

Bespoke blinds built this way will have a fabric stitched into the cassette that is completely opaque. This means that your blind, when fully extended, will block out any light likely to travel through your window. This helps to darken your room completely, rather than just dimming the light and creating a dull effect.

Blackout Blinds Benefits

Blackout blinds are very useful when you need complete light blockage. You might struggle to sleep with daylight outside, you may need total privacy, or you may need blinds to allow you to work without distractions. Many people also use blackout blinds commercially, as well as in schools and educational buildings, when they wish to use projectors and screens.

What’s more, blackout blinds can help to reduce glare from screens. The best blinds, those which are made to measure, will ensure that no light whatsoever travels into a room. This might also be preferred by artists and photographers, for example, who are developing pictures through traditional methods.

Crucially, it’s worth remembering that blackout blinds can help various people in many ways. Have you thought about how much they could benefit you in your everyday life?
