Blackout Blinds

Blackout Blinds are blinds which contain a coating to stop light getting into the room. These are ideal for those summer days when you want to prevent the sunlight from getting into your living room, and in the way of the television. They are also ideal if you like to go for a sleep during the day or are perhaps working night-shift, and don’t want to be kept awake by the daylight. Another benefit of blackout blinds is to help give you privacy, particularly for use in the bathroom and living area.


Many people decide to buy blackout blinds for use in their babies nursery, to allow them to get a good sleep at any time of the day. They can also help to retain heat and allow for added insulation. These types of blinds can also protect from furnishings and can give your home a designer feel. Blackout blinds are most commonly used in the bathroom and living room, as these are the rooms in the home that people want to feel that bit of extra privacy.

There is in fact a wide range of blackout blinds available, in many different colours and patterns, including terracotta, burgundy and lilac, amongst many others. This allows you to choose blinds which suit any room of your home. You can find blackout blinds in the roller variety, as well as vertical and Roman blinds. They can be ideal for use in the bathroom, as the wipe clean materials can help soak up the moisture expelled.


No matter what size of room you wish to put your blackout blinds, you can get them made to measure. If you want the freedom of opening and closing your blinds from the comfort of your bed and couch, you might wish to opt for the electrically operated or remote controlled styles of blackout blinds. This gives you the freedom to change them depending on how much sunlight is getting into the room. You can also find solar powered blackout blinds, which are controlled by the amount of sunlight coming through the window.
