Have you ever had a street light parked outside your window? Ever wished for a few more hours of darkness on a sunny Saturday morning? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then blackout curtains should be added to your decorating hack list.

Most people don’t realize that blackout curtains do so much more than just keep light out. They can keep your home cooler and help you sleep better. Read on to learn why you should be using blackout curtains in your home.

1. You’ll sleep better.

In addition to keeping light from shining into your room and disturbing your sleep, blackout fabrics help to reduce noise. The World Health Organization has indicated that noise disturbance during sleep leads to numerous health problems – depression, anxiety, fatigue.  Reducing noise even a little can help you get a better night’s rest.

2. You’ll save money

Direct sunlight penetrating into your home can increase your air conditioning bill. By blocking the sun’s light, and heat, your AC doesn’t need to work as hard to keep you cool.

3. They’re easy to care for

Blackout curtains vacuum easily due to their sturdy construction and smooth surface. Keep your space cleaner by vacuuming your curtains every few weeks.

Our fabrics are thin and pliable, making them easy to sew and manipulate. These fabrics can be sewn on a regular sewing machine.

4. They look great

Our Textured Blackout and Sateen Blackout fabrics are great at dressing up a room. Add your own artwork or customize a design from our Library to make them shine even more.
