Benefits of Blockout Blinds
Thinking of installing new blinds in your home? Perhaps you’re looking to modernise your window fittings? Blockout blinds are a wonderful option. With blockout blinds, you can control the amount of light reaching into a room. However, that’s not the only benefit of blockout blinds. Let’s look at some of the fantastic benefits of blockout blinds.
Protection from Heat
This is the most evident advantage of blockout blinds. They can entirely block any kind of light – artificial or natural. These blinds are highly effective in:
- Rooms fitted with large windows that receive a lot of direct light
- Rooms where glare and heat are a concern, especially during summer
- Home theatre rooms, studies and home offices where screen glare could be a concern
- Rooms of shift workers and kids, who tend to sleep during daytime
Even though sheer blinds are a great option for privacy during the daytime, most of the blinds are highly ineffective when the lights go on in the night.
The opaque fabric of blockout blinds will ensure that your privacy stays protected not only during day, but also in the evenings. You won’t have to worry about neighbours and passers-by being able to peek into your home.
Lower Energy Bills
During the summer, air conditioners tend to overwork. Blockout blinds can provide insulation to your home from the heat, which means that you won’t have to turn on the air conditioner whole day. The thick material will keep the harsh sunlight out, only letting the cool air inside.
During winters, these blinds will trap the heat, which means that you won’t have to keep the heater running constantly. Either way you will end up lowering your energy bills considerably.
Get Rid of Allergens
The primary problem with most blinds is the sheer amount of pollen and dust that can settle on the material. At BlindConcepts, we offer blockout blinds with low allergenic fabric that can help keep everyone in the home safe from allergens.
Keep Away Noise
Blockout blinds can even keep noise from leaving as well as entering a room. Because blockout blinds are made from thick fabric, they offer insulation against unnecessary noise. So whether your neighbours are celebrating in their lawn or mowing their lawn in the evening, blockout blinds can help keep away noise to some extent allowing you to get a good night’s sleep.
