BLACKOUT CURTAINS

 

Blackout fabrics in the bedroom provide better light protection. You can sleep better by using dimout or blackout fabrics.

 

DIMOUT

Dimout fabrics are dimming fabrics but not completely black-out. In general, these dimming fabrics are 70-90% dimming. They let in a small amount of light, making it appear as if the fabric "glows" when the sun shines brightly through it. They are perfect for any room, especially when you suffer from strong sunlight shining in the television, for example. If you are not a light sleeper, dimming curtains are a perfect solution for darkening your bedroom.

 

BLACK OUT

Blackout fabrics provide complete darkening of your room. They block 100% of the light through the lightproof coating on the back of the fabric. Blackout fabrics are very functional in rooms where it must be very dark, such as bedrooms. They are often also cheaper because you do not have to line the curtains. Go for blackout fabrics when you choose curtains, roman blinds, panel blinds and roller blinds.

TIPS FOR A DARK (BED)ROOM

  • Do you want to darken your room completely? Choose a pleated curtain on a rail. Curtains with rings still let light through the rings.
  • Limit cracks on the sides of your curtains where the light can seep into the room. Choose something wider curtains so that they overlap well.
  • Go for longer curtains to the floor or let your curtain fall over the windowsill. View our tips for measuring your curtains.
