What are Blackout Blinds?

Blackout blinds are designed to block light passing through the fabric and provide extra privacy in your home. They are most suited for bedrooms and rooms with screens, such as living rooms and offices, as the blackout fabric help prevents light shining onto the screens.  We always recommend any style of blackout blinds for bedrooms to help give you the best night’s sleep, every night. They also have thermal properties, which stops drafts from coming in from the windows and keep your room cool during the hot summer days. 

Expert Tip: Fitting into a window recess, helps reduce any natural light bleed that comes around the fabric and blind components.
