What are Blackouts?

Thanks to their tight woven fabric and blackout coating, the main purpose of blackouts is to block light from entering the room. They can be used in the same way as normal curtains and blinds but can also be used to control the light in your room.  

Types of Blackouts:

Blackout Curtains 

Blackout curtains are usually made from a thermal blackout lining and can cover the whole window preventing any light seeping through.

Blackout Blinds 


Make from a thick material with 3 layers of blackout coating, blackout blinds can cover your whole window and will dramatically reduce the majority, if not all of the natural light entering your room.

You could even combine blackout curtains with blackout blinds for maximum light blockage!

Block Light 

As mentioned above, we find the main purpose for blackouts is to block any natural light that may enter their bedroom or living space which is why they are ideal for the spring and summer months. Blackout curtains and blinds are perfect all year round for families with babies, night shift workers and even city homes where you may experience an increased amount of street lighting. 

Block sound

Don't let any unwanted street noise disrupt your blissful sleep...the thick extra linings in the blackout curtains and blinds help reduce noise meaning you can dream in peace.

Save energy

Windows can be accountable for 10%- 25% of your heating bill just from the heat that is lost though them. The thermal insulation that blackout blinds and curtains offer can help reduce this and help trap heat in the winter.
