You may be considering blackout blinds for your bedroom because you have trouble sleeping with even the smallest amount of light in the room. For the rest of your home, perhaps you prefer to have a dark environment while watching TV or movies during daylight hours. No matter what the reason is, blackout blinds have many advantages for those seeking a very dark room. These advantages include:
They block light
As mentioned above, when blackout blinds are installed correctly, they essentially remove all light from entering your room. This is perfect for nurseries, kid’s rooms, and bedrooms as darkness is essential for a good night's sleep.
They help reduce your energy bill
Blackout blinds or shades are a great choice if you’re looking for simple ways to reduce your energy bill. Because of their thick material, they help add an extra layer of insulation around your windows. They also help block sunlight from entering, which is perfect for hot summer days.
They are versatile
Although blackout shades are often recommended for the bedroom, they can go in any room of the house! Blackout shades are attractive, simple, and sleek, and can be a great addition to living rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
They come in a variety of styles & colours
Blackout blinds do not have to be black in colour. Although many are dark colours, you can also find them in greys, whites, and colours such as red, blue, or purple. As blackout blinds become more popular, there are more options and styles to choose from.
They pair well with other design elements
Blackout blinds are simple and easy to pair with the rest of your decor. If you want to add drapes or sheer curtains, you won’t have a hard time finding ones that fit well with your blinds!
