Blackout Blinds

feel at home

Blackout Blinds

If you need to block light in your bedroom, children’s rooms or in any room in your home, a blackout blind is the perfect solution. The additional privacy benefits offered by blackout blinds, in comparison to standard blinds, are a real plus.

The thicker material used to make the blackout blinds provides a block not only for light but prevents anyone from being able to see in, making them also a great option for bathrooms and toilets. Privacy and light blocking options will vary according to the style of blackout blind that you choose. We can discuss the various options with you at your free measure and quotation visit.

so much choice

Blackout Blind Options

Blackout blinds can be used in conjunction with other window dressings such as curtains or voiles, or on their own as a feature in your rooms. Use the blinds outside the window recess for maximum light blocking.

Although their name seems to suggest it, blackout blinds don’t need to be black! They can be any colour you choose to fit with your design ideas and décor. Neutral colours of greys, creams and whites can blend peacefully into the background or bold bright colours and patterns can really bring the wow factor. At Gillian’s Blinds, we offer hundreds of colours, patterns and textures for you to choose from, so we feel confident you will be able to find a blackout blind solution that works for the rooms in your home.

We offer a free home measure visit and quotation and can bring samples of our fabrics and blinds to your visit so that you see how the many looks we offer could work in your home.

Benefits of Blackout Blinds

The additional thickness of the fabric of a blackout blind has yet another great advantage – noise blocking! Sounds from the outside become muffled and quieter so if your neighbours start to mow the lawn at 8am on a Sunday morning, you’ll enjoy a quieter sleep.

We couldn’t sing the praises of a blackout blind enough, here’s another great benefit – insulation and temperature regulation. Draughts can be blocked by the thicker fabric, making a room cosy and snug during the winter months meaning lower energy bills. When summer comes, the heat of the day can be blocked by the blackout blind to maintain a steady cool temperature.
