A blackout blind is made from a thicker material than a standard blind which prevents light from filtering through into your room. Roller blinds, roman blinds, vertical blinds and Velux blinds can be purchased with blackout materials. A blackout blind does not have to be black or made from dark material. Your choice of colours and patterns is just as varied for blackout blinds as standard blinds.
Almost all blinds have a blackout option except venetian blinds as too much light can seep in between the slats.
Roller blinds are the most common choice for a blackout blind but you can opt for a roman blind or vertical blind. If you want a blackout blind it is best to opt for a made to measure option or you could pay extra for the blackout material and then be left with a small gap of light around the edges of the blind.
If you have Velux windows, their blackout blinds are excellent as they also completely cover the window.
