1. They Block Out 100% Light
The biggest benefit of 100% Blackout curtains is its ability to block light from entering a room. This is important for young children and people who work during the night and need to catch up their sleep during the day. Sleeping during the day can be difficult because of the sunlight; however, blackout curtains can stop up to 99% of sunlight from entering into a room. Blackout curtains are also ideal for creating complete darkness in your home cinema room. They will block out any light that might ruin your home theater movie night.
2. Good Thermal Properties
Another benefit of 100% blackout curtains is their thermal properties. In most homes, 10-25% of thermal energy loss is from windows. However, with blackout curtains, your energy bill could be reduced by up to 25%. During winter, blackout curtains will help keep the heat in the room. While in summer, they have the ability to reflect heat out of the room. Both circumstances ensure that you are saving money on your energy expenses.
3. Acoustic Properties
100% Blackout curtains provide a surprising difference to any room and are a worthwhile investment. Besides the benefits of light control, blackout curtains can reduce unwanted street noises. The thick fabric used to line blackout curtains acts as a sound insulator, helping you to get to sleep without being interrupted by any loud sounds.
The Fabric Fox has 100% Blackout lining that can be used with any of the sheer ranges, as well as other self-lined blackout curtaining. These ranges (Ambient and Twilight) already have a woven fabric built in, so you don’t need any additional curtaining or lining fabric.
These 100% Blackout curtains are all double width (280cm wide) and are available at an affordable price, saving you money and the hassle of shopping around for extra fabric. They are also made from Polyester, which is easy to clean and long lasting.
