Why Blackout shutters?
If you are light sensitive, have young children that nap during the day or a shift worker, then you will benefit from our blackout shutters. They offer a superior blackout solution than traditional blinds and curtains whilst providing the sleek modern look of shutters.
- Adds additional insulation
- Superior solution to blinds or curtains
- Lightweight, honeycomb cell construction
- Fully integrated into shutter framework
Our blackout shutters are custom-made with a honeycomb cell channeled into a unique shutter frame. This allows the honeycomb blind to fit tightly with an overlap in the frame which eliminates almost all light leakage. With the shutters on top as an additional covering, this shall make your room almost completely blackout!
Blackout shutters for bedrooms
Shutters in bedrooms are a popular option and in many cases blackout shutters are not required. Shutters alone are great at eliminating light compared to traditional ‘black-out’ blinds and curtains, which often let light seep in around the edges. With blackout shutters, the solution is vastly more effective and ideal for bedrooms that are exposed to outside lighting, nurseries and those who are more light sensitive.
Best shutters to block out light
Ultimately, the best solution is our blackout shutters. However, there are some design options that can improve light elimination provided by the shutters alone! Louvre size can help – the bigger the louvres, the less light leakage you will have through the louvres. Another highly effective option is our solid shutters.
Alternative blackout window solutions
An alternative solution to our integrated blackout shutters is to install a separate blackout blind behind the shutter frame. Depending on the type of window you have, this can work well. During your home survey we shall discuss all the viable options to achieve the best aesthetical finish, whilst providing the level of blackout you need.
