Is There a Downside to Black-Out Curtains?

While black-out curtains are excellent for blocking out light, they may also block out desirable natural light during the day. Additionally, they can potentially make a room feel smaller due to their heaviness. But, with various styles and fabrics available, you can find black-out curtains that suit your aesthetic and needs.

What Type of Curtain is Best for Black-Out?

The best type of curtain for black-out would be those made from thick, dense materials. These curtains can effectively block out most if not all, light. Absolute Blinds offers a variety of black-out curtains designed to meet your specific needs.

Do Black-Out Curtains Actually Work?

Yes, black-out curtains do work. They are designed to block out nearly all sunlight, creating a dark and serene environment. This makes them perfect for bedrooms, baby nurseries, and other areas where you need to control the light.

Do Black-Out Curtains Go on the Inside or Outside?

Black-out curtains usually go on the inside of the window, closest to the glass. This position helps to block out more light and provides better insulation.

Which Type of Curtain is Best for My Living Room?

The choice of curtains for your living room depends on your taste and the room’s décor. However, curtains made from lightweight fabrics like cotton or linen are popular choices as they allow natural light to filter in while offering privacy.

What are the Current Curtain Trends?

In the world of interior design, current trends are constantly evolving. This year, maximalism has returned with bold patterns, vibrant colours, and luxurious textures taking centre stage. For a more relaxed look, neutral tones, soft linens, and elegant sheer curtains remain popular, providing a calming and serene ambience. In terms of functionality, eco-friendly and thermal-insulated curtains are on the rise. Lastly, technology is making its mark with smart curtains, which can be adjusted with either a voice command or a swipe on your smartphone.

Should My Curtains Be Lighter or Darker Than My Couch?

Your curtains can be lighter or darker than your couch, depending on the look you want to achieve. Light curtains can make a room feel airy and spacious, while darker ones create a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Matching your curtains to your choice can also make your living room look more coordinated. Overall, your curtains should complement the rest of your décor.

Is There Anything My Curtains Should Match in My Living Room?

Your curtains should ideally match or complement your living room’s colour scheme. They should also harmonise with the style and mood of the room.

Why Are Made-to-Measure Curtains So Expensive?

Made-to-measure curtains are pricier because they are customised to fit your exact window measurements, ensuring a perfect fit. They are also made from high-quality materials and require skilled labour to produce.

Should Curtains Touch the Floor?

Whether or not curtains should touch the floor depends on personal preference. However, for a classic and sophisticated look, many people opt for curtains that lightly brush the floor.

If I’m Looking to Block Heat, Are White or Black Curtains Better?

Black curtains are better at blocking heat as dark colours absorb more heat. However, they also make a roomer hotter when the sun shines on them. White or light-coloured reflect more sunlight, keeping a room cooler.

Are White Curtains Better for Heat?

White curtains are better for reflecting heat and keeping a room cooler. They’re an excellent choice to keep a room bright and airy while reducing heat gain from the sun.

What Curtains Go With Cream Walls?

Almost any colour or pattern of curtain can go with cream walls. The neutral tone of cream allows it to blend well with bold and soft colours. You can opt for a contrast with bold patterns or a more harmonious look with soft pastels or earth tones.

What Is the Rule for Curtain Width?

The general rule for curtain width is that your curtains should be approximately two to two-and-a-half times the width of your window. This allows for full coverage when the curtains are closed and a pleasingly complete look when they’re open.

Are Curtain Widths Per Curtain or Pair?

When buying curtains, the width specified is usually per curtain. However, it’s always best to check the product details.

Where to Buy Curtains?

For top-quality, made-to-measure curtains, look no further than Absolute Blinds. We offer an extensive range of styles and fabrics, ensuring you find the perfect curtains for your home.

How Do I Know What Size Curtain to Buy?

To know what size curtains to buy, you should measure your window’s width and length. The width of your curtain should be two to two-and-a-half times your window’s width for a full, gathered look. While the length depends on your preference, most people opt for curtains that just touch the floor.

How Do I Buy the Right Curtains?

To buy curtains, measure your windows to determine the size you need. Next, choose a fabric and style that suits your home’s décor. Then, reach out to the professionals at Absolute Blinds for help.
