The benefits of blackout blinds

When you’re thinking about going for blackout blinds, it might seem like there’s not going to be that much difference between blackout or light filtering fabrics. However, delve a little deeper and you’ll see that they have the potential to transform your life in a whole host of ways.  Let us guide you through our top reasons to go blackout. 


Blackout blind


Block Out Light - I guess this one is self explanatory & especially good for these lighter summer months. Blackout fabrics will completely block the light from coming through. Just think about that for a moment, complete darkness for bedrooms. What bliss! Ensure a restless night for the whole family.

Enhanced Privacy - A great addition to get some extra privacy within the home or office. Can also provide added security for your home or office as nobody will be able to see in even if walking past the window. 

Reduce noise- So, this might be a surprise, but the extra thickness or extra layer of fabric from our blackout products can actually help reduce noise coming into the home. Excellent if you’re near a main road or in a busy urban area. Added tranquility for your space. 

Keep cosy with better thermal control- Proving blackout blinds are the go-to through the seasons! They are great at keeping things warm and cosy. Great when you want to shut out the world and snuggle down, watching a movie with the family. 

Who benefits most from blackout blinds?- children, shift workers, light sleepers. Also, great for migraine sufferers as it will give you a dark space to rest until migraine passes. Absolute winner! We think though, most homes will benefit from blackout blinds!
