When searching for the perfect nights sleep many of us look to temperature, support and softness. But creating a barrier to external light with an effective and efficient blackout blind can be equally as important.
We look at how to make the most of your windows when choosing blackout blinds in your home. Imagining that perfect nights sleep is no longer just a dream .
Blackout Roller Blinds & Roman Blinds
Roller blinds and roman blinds are the go to choice when looking for a blackout blind solution. Mainly because they use one sheet of material with no gaps to cover your window.
Another great reason why roller blinds and roman blinds are the number one choice is due to an abundance of colours and fabrics. Whether you're matching your existing decor or creating a whole new design it's simple to find a blind for the perfect look.
When choosing a blackout out blind it's worth considering a few points. Firstly a roller blind will allow more light to bleed around the edges than a roman blind when fitted inside the recess due to the brackets attached at the top. Secondly your new roman blind could cost double what your new roller blind will.
Installed inside or out
It's worth taking time to consider how you would like your new blackout blind to be installed. Most windows will allow two options, either inside your recess or outside of the recess.
If you're looking to layer your windows with curtains and blinds your blind will have to sit inside the recess to allow the curtain to be fitted on the outside.
Some may think fitting your new blackout to the outside of the recess will allow more coverage of the window. As the blind can be made bigger to cover the edges. Although this is true, generally having your blind fitted inside the recess will have a more seamless appearance on the whole interior as well as the child safe clips being a lot more discrete.
Vertical and Venetian
Due to their very nature, vertical blinds and venetian blinds have slats of either fabric or wood which will allow light to bleed through even when closed.
Although wood as a material won't allow light through and vertical blinds can be made with a blackout fabric, these are only recommended if style takes president over function.
