Blackout Vertical Blinds – Not Just For Summer
During the darker winter months, vertical blinds lined with blackout fabric is an extremely effective way of keeping your home feeling warmer without paying a hefty cost. Advantages of blackout blinds include:
– light blocking properties
– thermal efficiency
– sound proofing
Our specialists here at Kingston Blinds Direct offer expert advice to help you find a design which will fit with your requirements and complement the rest of your property. We have put together a few of the main benefits of using blackout vertical blinds so you can see how they will enhance the functionality of your home.
How do blackout vertical blinds operate?
Blackout vertical blinds provide the option of either being opened fully for a clear view or drawn and tilted at any angle you wish to control the glare of the sun. The blackout fabric means that when the blinds are fully closed, they offer complete privacy from the outside world and block out most of the glare.
Vertical blinds are a popular choice amongst our customers as their exceptional versatility gives users total control of the amount of sunlight that enters a room by simply using the adjustable vertical panels. The panels can also be collected to one side using a pulley system which either allows your room to be fully illuminated with natural light or completely closed for total privacy.
Where can blackout vertical blinds be used?
These qualities make blackout vertical blinds the ideal choice for children’s rooms and offices where outside noise and irregular temperatures can be distracting. Conservatories will also benefit significantly from blackout vertical blinds as they will help to regulate the temperature of the room during hot sticky summers and freezing cold winters.
When should I fit these blinds?
Contrary to common belief, blackout vertical blinds are not just for the summer. Their thermal efficiency means the winter months are the perfect time to install blackout vertical blinds as they will retain heat and keep your rooms warm, while saving you money on your energy bills.
By fitting these blinds during the winter, you’re also preparing your property for the sunny spring and summer months in which a great deal of heat and glare can enter your home. Therefore, by installing blackout vertical blinds as early as possible you’re guaranteed to get optimum usage from your investment all year round.
