what is a blackout blind?
A blackout blind is any blind that has blackout properties. It’s not a particular style of blind – you can find blackout roller blinds and blackout roman blinds in our collection.
They’re usually either made with blackout fabric or lined with blackout lining. Our blackout blinds are made with three pass curtain lining, which means that it is created with a layer of foam, which is then coated with two opaque membranes so no light will pass through.
Blackout blinds don’t let any light through, however how you hang your blinds will affect how much light can get in around the blind. Inside the recess will look neater, but it may let some light in. Outside the recess allows you to make sure that the window is completely covered. If you prefer to hang your blind inside the recess, consider pairing with blackout curtains for even more light blocking.
where can you use a blackout blind?
Anywhere! Blackout blinds are particularly popular in bedrooms, as they makes getting a good night’s sleep easy. But they can be used in home offices, where light can cause glare on a computer screen or make it hard to see a video call. You could also use them in bathrooms for added privacy or to make sure no one can see the lights on in your hallway.
do blackout blinds keep heat out?
Our blackout blinds have thermal properties too. The same process of foam and opaque membrane that blocks light out prevents heat from moving through it too. It means that your blackout blinds will keep heat out in the summer, and keep it in during the winter months – they can even help reduce your energy bills.
