Blackout Roller Shades
Blackout roller blinds can be used anywhere but are especially useful in bedrooms, where those who struggle to doze off with the presence of natural light can remove this barrier to sleep. They also prevent the intrusion of car headlights and street lamps during the darker hours of the day, offering full control over the amount of illumination in the room.
Blackout blinds are also the most effective way of preventing draughts that rob rooms of heat during the winter, so can result in a warmer space and a potential saving on heating bills. But in order to achieve this, it is vital that the roller blind completely covers the window opening. Our bespoke service provides made to measure blackout roller blinds to fit all window dimensions – large or small.
These blinds are also available in a wide range of colours, allowing you to fit them in with your existing colour scheme or create a colourful feature in the window space. What’s more, they’re simple to install, making them an easy and stylish way to take control of the light levels in any room in the home. Source: DirectBlinds
