The RIMINI BLACKOUT COLLECTION features the same great quality fabrics and colours from the Rimini Collection but with blackout properties for bedrooms or other rooms where blocking light is essential.
The ORIGIN BLACKOUT COLLECTION features a lovely range of fabrics in popular natural shades and bright colours with the same colour of the back of the shade. These great looking blackout blinds block the unwanted UV rays from the sun and block out light in rooms where this is important like bedrooms.
We have a very large range of blackout blinds here at 247. We offer 3 main types of blackout blinds, roller blinds, vertical blinds and panel blinds, all of which have full blackout properties. The main idea behind a blackout blind is to block the light coming into a room. There could be many reasons you would want to block out light and the main one is for sleep. A good blackout blind works well in your bedroom to stop early morning light disturbing sleep, and if you were to work night shifts and need to sleep during the day they can be invaluable.
Fundamentally the blackout blinds look identical to a normal version of the type of blind you see in homes across the UK. However they have a lining on the blind that stops light penetrating through and potentially disturbing you. You will often find many different colours, patterns and textures on blackout blinds, so it is relatively easy to get function and style.
You will often find that a lot of blackout blinds are used for childrens rooms, this is due to them easily creating a good sleeping environment for children to sleep in. A child is more likely to settle and sleep in a room where there is nothing disturbing them and it is a peaceful and dark environment, this is even more essential in the summer months where it is still light past bed time and the blind can give the illusion of it being darker than it actually is.
Blackout blinds offer the protection needed in a room by a coating on the blind which doesn't allow light to penetrate through it, if you get the blinds with a recess measurement then you can achieve a total blackout in the room giving you the ultimate sleeping conditions. When you then roll or draw the blind up it leaves the window free to take advantage of the natural light coming through it.
