Blackout

Blackout window treatments are a type of window treatment that blocks out all sunlight and provides complete darkness. They are a popular choice for bedrooms, nurseries, and other rooms where darkness is desired. They are also available in a variety of styles and colors to complement any décor.

  • Improved sleep: They can help to improve sleep by creating a dark environment. Darkness is essential for the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep.
  • Reduced energy costs: Can help to reduce energy costs by blocking out heat from the sun in the summer and keeping heat in during the winter.
  • Reduced glare: Can help to reduce glare from computer screens, televisions, and other electronic devices. This can be helpful for reducing eye strain and improving productivity.
  • Increased privacy: Can provide complete privacy from neighbors and passersby.

Choosing the Right Window Treatments

When choosing window treatments, it is important to consider the following factors:

  • Room type: Consider the type of room where you will be using the window treatments. Bedrooms and nurseries are the most common rooms where they’re used, but they can also be used in other rooms such as living rooms, home theaters, and media rooms.
  • Window size: Make sure to measure your windows carefully before choosing. Window treatments should be wide enough to cover the entire window and should be long enough to extend at least 6 inches below the windowsill.

  • Price: Can range in price from affordable to expensive. Set a budget before you start shopping and choose blackout window treatments that fit your budget.

Installing and Maintaining Blackout Window Treatments
