It’s All About Blockout Curtains

As you might’ve guessed by the name, blockout curtains are the epitome of light control and privacy, designed to stop sunlight in its tracks and offer unparalleled darkness and seclusion. 

Featuring a specialised opaque fabric with a light-blocking acrylic coating, these curtains effectively transform any room into a haven of darkness – ideal for enhancing sleep quality or creating a private retreat. 

Their ability to eliminate glare, reduce noise, and regulate room temperature also provides energy efficiency benefits. In turn, protecting your wallet from rising energy bills. 

The thick yet lightweight fabric protects furniture and floors from fading, ensuring longevity.

Perfect for weekend sleep-ins, binge-watching Netflix, or working from home without screen glare, blockout curtains provide superior light control. Even in rooms with strong sunlight. Our selection ranges from casual to sophisticated styles, and we’re here to help you choose the perfect fit.

Should I Use Curtain Tracks Or Rods For Hanging Curtains?

When deciding how to hang your curtains, the choice between using curtain tracks or rods is an important one.  Easy to see why, since it impacts both the functionality and the aesthetic of your room. 

Here’s a detailed look at both options to help you make an informed decision:

Curtain Tracks:
  • Functionality: Curtain tracks come with a wand system which allows you to open and close the curtains effortlessly. But, you can also open/close them by hand.  This can be particularly convenient for large windows or for rooms where ease of use is a priority.
  • Aesthetics: Tracks are usually hidden behind the curtains, providing a clean and streamlined look that blends seamlessly with your décor.
Curtain Rods:
  • Functionality: Just like curtain tracks, rods come with a wand system which allows you to open and close the curtains effortlessly. You can also open/close by hand. This allows for decorative finials at the ends of the rods, adding an extra element of style to the room. 
  • Aesthetics: Curtain rods allows for decorative finials at the ends of the rods, adding an extra element of style to the room. They can be used with all curtain types.
  • Space and Style: Consider the room’s style and the amount of space above and around your windows. Rods can add a decorative touch with various styles and finishes available.
  • Ease of Use: For those who have difficulty with manual opening and closing, or where the curtains need to be moved frequently, tracks might be the better option.

Where Would You Use These Curtains?



Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! Motorised curtains are a fantastic addition to any modern home, offering convenience and style. By opting for motorisation, you can control your curtains remotely, allowing you to adjust lighting and privacy with just the touch of a button.

Blackout curtains have the potential to greatly reduce the amount of natural light entering your space and create an environment resembling darkness. If kept closed for long periods while you’re awake, they can decrease your access to natural light, potentially affecting your mood and productivity negatively.

We recommend these curtains for spaces like bedrooms primarily, and also media rooms, as they not only keep out light, but also muffle sound to a certain extent. They’re especially great for bedrooms, as keeping your bedroom dark helps you fall asleep faster and sleep longer because your body’s internal clock (your circadian rhythm) is sensitive to light.

Our blackout curtains sport superior fabrics, boasting exceptional light-blocking capabilities. Our fabrics are in turn sourced by local manufacturers, so you can be assured they adhere to stringent Australian quality standards. 

For maximum blockout, we recommend opting for floor-to-ceiling blackout curtains, that are also wide enough to cover the sides of your windows. 

As you may have gauged by now, blackout curtains are designed with the intention of blockout out light. This includes both sunlight and other light sources, such as car lights, street lamps and so on. They’re great on their own, but can also be layered on top of blinds. That way, if you still find light leaking through, blackout curtains will serve as an extra layer to keep it out. 

It mainly depends on how thick and opaque the fabric of the curtains is. Blackout curtains usually use thick, opaque fabrics meant to block all light. But the type of fabric and how the curtains are made can also affect how well they block light.

Using blackout curtains or shades can cut down heat transfer through your windows by up to 24 percent. This keeps rooms cooler in summer and warmer in winter, helping you use heating and cooling systems more efficiently and save energy.

Opting for blackout drapes is a highly practical decision that improves sleep quality while saving money. For households with young children, they’re especially important to consider. Blackout drapery can enhance the ambience of any bedroom or living space.

Blockout curtains work by blocking external light from entering a room through windows. The dense fabric and special lining effectively absorb and block incoming light, creating a dark environment ideal for sleeping, watching movies, or reducing glare on screens. This helps to improve sleep quality, enhance privacy, and regulate room temperature.

Yes, blockout curtains are suitable for use in any room where light control, privacy, and temperature regulation are desired. They are commonly used in bedrooms, living rooms, home theatres, nurseries, and any other spaces where darkness and privacy are important.

While blockout curtains are primarily designed to block out light, they can also provide some degree of noise reduction. The thick, dense fabric helps to absorb sound and minimise external noise, creating a quieter and more peaceful indoor environment.

Blockout curtains are typically low-maintenance and easy to care for. Regular cleaning with a vacuum cleaner or duster can help remove dust and debris from the fabric. Depending on the material, some blockout curtains may be machine washable, while others may require professional cleaning or spot cleaning with a damp cloth.

Yes, blockout curtains can be used alone or in combination with other window treatments such as sheer curtains or blinds. Layering blockout curtains with sheer curtains allows for greater flexibility in light control, privacy, and aesthetics, while still benefiting from the light-blocking properties of the blockout curtains.

Yes, blockout curtains are safe for homes with children and pets. They are typically cordless or have child-safe cord options to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of young children and pets. Additionally, the fabrics used in blockout curtains are often made from non-toxic materials, making them safe for indoor use.

Blockout curtains are manufactured with opaque fabric backed by lining that prevents sunlight from entering the room, reducing the need for air conditioning to cool the space and thus lowering energy consumption and costs.

Blockout curtains are specifically made to block out light completely, making them ideal for bedrooms or rooms where light control is essential. On the other hand, thermal insulated curtains are created with materials like an acrylic coating to help retain warmth within a room, particularly during colder seasons. While blackout curtains prioritise light blocking, thermal insulated curtains focus on regulating room temperature. Some curtains are designed to offer a combination of both features, providing thermal insulation along with effective light-blocking capabilities for dual benefits.

Blockout curtains are effective in reducing exposure to disruptive light, which can have a positive impact on maintaining a natural circadian rhythm. By blocking out external light sources, blackout curtains create a dark and conducive sleeping environment during the day, prompting the body to produce melatonin, the hormone that helps regulate sleep-wake cycles.
