Many brands of Blackout Curtains can block up to 99% of visible light. If you work a night job and need to sleep during the day, Blackout Curtains are extremely helpful.
If you have a new baby and are trying to get them on a sleep schedule, Blackout Curtains can help maintain those daytime naps. If you have a family movie room and want to block light for entertainment purposes, Blackout Curtains are perfect.
Years ago, Blackout Curtains were, well, drab, to be honest. Nowadays there are lots of styles, patterns, and colors to choose from.
Blackout Curtains Can Cut Down on Noise
Do you have noisy neighbors or live near a busy street? Do you work overnights, and have a window that faces the backyard where the kids play while you are trying to sleep?
Blackout Curtains with a thicker fabric can also help cut down on noise. A darker environment itself often seems quieter, but pair that with thick fabric and you’ve got yourself your own quiet dark room.
Blackout Curtains Can Help Reduce Energy Bills
When you think of light-blocking window treatments, there is the possibility that they will reduce energy bills. Darker colors absorb light to help keep the heat from the sundown. Plus, thicker fabric curtains can help reduce the air coming in through gaps in the window.
Blackout Curtains are stylish, light-blocking, and some are even energy-efficient – talk about a multi-tasking curtain! There are many reasons you may want to block light coming in your window, but please don’t tack up your comforter to do the job.
