Blackout curtains are a practical addition to any room in your home. Designed to prevent light penetration, our customers buy blackout curtains for a better night’s sleep in the bedroom or for less glare in the entertainment on movie night.
Keeping it dark. Arguably, the most crucial feature of blackout curtains is their ability to be opaque. No natural light should peep through. Yet, there are other benefits to blackout curtains, of course…
Lined Blackout Curtains
At Blinds4You, we give you the option to choose lined blackout curtains across our entire range! Simply choose your product and select the option. It’s not imperative, we understand that some people prefer their curtains to be lightweight and enjoy light to creep through for a more natural awakening in the morning.
However, lined blackout curtains are proving popular thanks to their functional thermal properties and their ability to be bright or light in colour but still block out any natural light.
Do Blackout Curtains Help With the Cold?
Naturally, lined blackout curtains are thicker, giving them more thermal properties which can help to combat the cold. A lot of heat is lost through your window space and blackout curtains act a s thermal barriers preventing heat from escaping.
Do Blackout Curtains Save Energy?
Because blackout curtains prevent heat from escaping (or entering) a room, they can help regulate the temperature in your home. In turn, this can help reduce energy bills. It's Important to remember that this is not their main function, however.
Do Blackout Curtains Reduce Noise from Outside?
Again, although it’s not their main purpose, a thick curtain can act as a sound barrier to any outside noise. They will never completely eradicate the noise but they can reduce it.
Pencil Pleat Blackout Curtains
When it comes to a preferred style of curtain, pencil pleat curtains are considered the classic. That’s why we’ve made our pencil pleat curtains available with blackout lining. So, not only can you get the look you desire but the practical elements too.
Magnificent Powered Blue Curtains
Here you can see how the pencil pleat style forms different shades of blue through its folds, creating a soft and inviting look to the window space. Notice how the drop (length) of the curtains help to draw the eye to the floor, giving the illusion of a grander window. The light blue colour lifts the atmosphere of the room, making it more relaxed and less formal.

One of the joys of blackout curtains is that you can still choose a light coloured curtain to suit your individual style and taste without the worry of daylight shining through it.

Are Blackout Curtains a Good Idea?
Well, we think so! Curtains, in general, offer solutions to privacy, enhance the feel of the environment and add a softness to harsh spaces. Therefore, by choosing blackout curtains, not only will you benefit from said aspects, but you will be benefiting from blocking out any unwanted natural light, as well as adding a layer of insulation.
