Blackout curtains are very useful in rooms where you need to block the light or control the amount of light. This is not their only advantage, as you will read below, and despite the name, the curtains can be in other colors than black which allows you to match them with the interior colors and combine functionality with visual appeal.

Blackout window treatment can be found in various types – curtains, shades, blinds, roman shades, honeycomb shades, roller shades, vertical shades, etc. Some people associate blackout curtains with war times. Nowadays these curtains are usually made from a very tightly woven fabric which blocks most of the light. The traditional curtain design features a liner and a dense fabric in various colors. You could either buy them or sew then by yourself if you feel skilled enough. There are many tutorials available to help you.

 The main advantages of blackout curtains

Blackout curtains will save you from excessive heat and light even without the sun directly shining on the glass. If you wanted to have a nap on a weekend or watch a movie, you don’t need to get irritated because your curtains or shades do not darken the room enough. Some blackout treatments would block up to 98% of the light which is perfect for bedrooms and home theaters. Noise blocking is another major advantage. These curtains will reduce the energy consumption as they are a good insulation from the cold during winter time and from the heat in summer time. Last but not least, using blackout curtains will prevent your furniture from fading.
