Installing Blackout Roller Blinds

Blackout roller blinds are a great idea if privacy is important to you. There is a vast selection of these tyes of window coverings available online through high street suppliers, such as Laura Ashley and John Lewis, as well as from internet only suppliers.

Many reasons cexist for you to choose this type of window covering. Here is a list of valid reasons as to why they are a good idea for your home.


There are dozens of window shades out there that you can choose from. Some are really inexpensive but others can cost a lot of money. Blackout roller blinds fall in the cheap category but not so cheap that they are of poor quality. The reason they are cheap is because they are simple when compared to types like Roman or layered blinds. If you purchase from a warehouse store, online shop or factory outlet you may be able to get a cheaper price.

Easy to Put Up

One problem with other blinds is that they are hard to install. There are a series of brackets, lots of measuring and fighting with the blinds. Blackout roller blinds are composed of a single unit that sits comfortably on two brackets that are easy to install. All you need to do is measure the width of the window and buy the right size of blinds.

Simplicity of Usage

All types of window blinds are easy to use but blackout roller blinds surpass them all in simplicity of usage. Other blinds require you to pull a series of strings at different angles to adjust the height of the blinds or to lower them. Blackout roller blinds only need to have the shade pulled down and released to stay in place. Pull the blind down again slightlty and pull up and the blind will rise. That is by far simpler than using several strings to try and maneuver the blinds.

Keeps Your Room Private

If complete privacy is your goal then blackout roller blinds are unbeatable. Unlike other window blinds you cannot see through or peak around blackout roller blinds. Most other types of window blinds are made from white plastic and layered together with string supporting them. If the sun hits the blinds right they become somewhat transparent. You can also get close enough to look between the crack and around the blinds.

Energy Efficient

Blackout roller blinds effectively block out sunlight regardless of how direct it is to your window. This fact alone will help keep the room a few degrees cooler. This, of course, will prevent you from having to turn on heaters or air conditioners which will save you money.


Window blinds do attract dust and most blinds you'll have to use a feather or nylon duster to remove it. This causes dust to get in the air. Blackout roller blinds are typically made from a canvas material which is easily cleaned by simply wiping the dirt off with a towel.
