Complete Blackout With Blinds

When it comes to blocking sunlight, there is no better solution then blackout blinds. They are specially made for this purpose and can be used for many other purposes, like blocking the outside sources completely during the day and night. Some of you think that curtains can do this too, but that is not the truth. Simply because some sorts of light are too powerful and the curtains will hardly close the entire window. The best solution here are blackout blinds.

If you are one of the people who works throughout the night and needs some rest, you might be interested to try them. Or if you need complete privacy, then blinds would be a good choice to put them in bedroom or in a bathroom. You won't have to worry about a thing after you place them on your windows. And when it comes to privacy, there is one thing people often forget about blinds. The noise from the outside will be blocked with them. Yup, you won't have to hear all the traffic and yelling anymore. Besides the windows, blackout blinds will keep you relaxed and stress free from noise.



Another advantage you will appreciate is the energy saving you will attain with these shutters. They will manage to retain the warmth in your home and reflect the hot air and sunlight during the summer. These are great advantages and it is no wonder that blackout shades became so popular. The demand is rising since they are cheaper then ever and do a better job when compared to drapes.

There are different types of blackout shutters. For example, honeycomb, wood, vertical, aluminum, natural grass and bamboo blinds. And the patterns that you can choose from are also many so you will be able to find one that matches your home decor. And when it comes to price, it all depends on the type and pattern you choose.

Installation

It was thought that the sun blocking is easy thing to do. Just place some wood blinds inside the window and that's it. But the truth is quite different. It is because when you shut the openings and there will still be some light coming inside. It would come through the side openings of the window and then you just wasted your time and money. To solve this problem, you have to put blinds outside and at least 3 inches should be spanning over all sides. This can be also done by using hold down brackets.

Another interesting thing you can do is to convert your window blinds to blackout shutters. You will need some money of course, but it is an easy task. You will have to attach a blackout lining on the backside of your shades. You will have complete darkness for sure, the only thing that wil hurt you here is the price. But if you want to keep your current shutters, this is the way to do it.
