Blackout shades are an excellent choice for any room where you want to block out as much light as possible. This may be in your bedroom for a better night’s sleep, in a cinema room where you want to watch movies in the dark, or in a child’s room for daytime naps. No matter your reason for wanting a darker room, we are confident that blackout shades are the perfect solution to your lighting needs. There are many reasons to choose blackout shades. A few of our top reasons for choosing blackout shades are:
- Light – It goes without saying that blackout curtains help to reduce the amount of light entering a room. They won’t completely block out all light, but they definitely help to make your room a lot darker.
- Reduced Noise – Blackout shades are a great way to prevent noises from entering or exiting a room. Unwanted noises can come from cars passing by, the neighbor’s dog barking, or kids playing outside. Blackout shades won’t eliminate those noises, but they will reduce them. Blackout shades can also help to reduce the amount of noise leaving your home for the neighbors to hear. This may be from watching a movie, playing music, or kids playing.
- Energy Efficiency – During the colder winter months, your home’s heat can escape through the glass of your windows. And during the hot summer months, your cooled AC air can seep out your windows as well. Blackout shades can help to reduce the amount of warm or cooled air escaping your home and make it more energy efficient.
