Blackout Window Blinds

Thinking about purchasing window blinds? The first thing to do is to identify what fits best in your room.

Vertical blinds or venetian blinds are best if you want something stylish and up to date.

Blinds are a great way to refresh the basic look your home without spending huge amounts of money. Whilst usually cheaper and easier to maintain than curtains, they also provide insulation, give you privacy and protect your house and furniture from strong sunlight.

Blackout Blinds

Blackout shades or blinds, are specially designed from quality fabric and usually have a coating on the rear of the fabric to prevent light from passing through. These blinds are very effective at keeping light out of a room and are ideal for people working night shifts or for young children.

As well as having sound proofing benefits, they can also reduce thermal loss in the winter and thermal build up in the summer, helping to cut the cost of your heating and air conditioning bills.

Fitting blackout blinds is a fairly simple process, given their lightweight material. However it is important to note that to allow the louveres to open and close correctly, the blind must be fitted a couple of inches away from the window.
