Blackout blinds are window coverings designed to completely block as much external light from entering a room when they are closed. They are typically made of opaque materials like thick fabric, vinyl, or special light-blocking materials.

The primary purpose of blackout blinds is to create darkness within a room, making them particularly useful for bedrooms, home theatres, or any space where controlling light levels is important. They effectively prevent sunlight from entering, which can be especially helpful for individuals who work night shifts and need to sleep during the day or for anyone sensitive to light when resting.

Blackout blinds fabrics are backed to eliminate light and can be a number of styles of blind as such. If you want a certain style blind but in Blackout, you’ll find our Blinds Collection will normally state whether that blind comes in a blackout option, but you can always ask us if you’re not sure.

Blackout blinds are perfect for bedrooms if you find light pollution is a problem probably responsible for many nights of disturbed sleep. They Block out a lot of light but the amount of light blocked varies from style to style due to the amount of light bleed at the sides of the window.

Types of BLACKOUT Blinds

Blackout blinds encompass various types designed to effectively block external light from entering a room, catering to diverse preferences and functional needs.

Blackout Roller Blinds, a common choice, consist of a single fabric panel that smoothly rolls up and down, offering versatility in material, color, and pattern. Blackout Roman Blinds provide a softer aesthetic, folding into horizontal sections when raised and lying flat when lowered, available in various fabrics for style and light control.

Blackout Vertical Blinds, hanging vertically from a track, come with adjustable slats to manage light, though they might not completely block light like some other types. Pleated Blinds feature a neatly pleated fabric that effectively blocks light in a compact manner, folding up to the top of the window or lowering as needed.

Blackout Pleated Cellular Blinds, with an insulating cellular structure, trap air and some versions offer blackout capabilities, combining light blockage with energy efficiency. Panel Blinds, used for larger windows or room dividers, consist of large fabric panels sliding on a track, providing effective light control if designed with blackout materials.

When selecting blackout blinds, considerations include the desired light blockage level, window size, room decor, and potential additional features like insulation or motorization to suit individual preferences.

Perfect Fit Blackout Blinds

Perfect Fit Blackout Blinds are special window coverings that fit right onto uPVC windows without needing screws or drills. They have a frame that clips onto the window frame itself. These blinds are great because they fit neatly and don’t stick out into the room.

The blackout feature means they’re made with a special fabric that stops light from coming through, making them perfect for bedrooms or places where you need it dark. They’re easy to clean and maintain, and they come in different styles and colors to match your room. They’re a good choice if you want a clean look and the tiny gaps around the edges lend well towards enhacing the blackout effect.
