Whilst having your own movie room might seem like an unattainable luxury, in actual fact your choice of blinds can make this dream a reality! In preparation for the festive film marathons over the Christmas and New Year period, there’s no better time than now to transform your living room into your own personal cinema for a fraction of the price.

How to create your movie room

Blackout blinds are the ideal choice for a movie room, as not only do they darken the room to create the perfect ambience, but they can even transform into the big screen itself! Not only will projecting your chosen film onto white blackout blinds provide a sharper, more detailed image, it will also prevent any glare on the screen, improving the overall viewing experience.

For exceptional light control, here at Kingston Blinds Direct our range of vertical and roller blinds are available in blackout fabric, so they are made from a thicker material to block out all the light. Although they come in a wide selection of colours and patterns, if you are choosing to use blackout blinds as a movie screen then you must stick with a block white colour for optimal visibility.

Perfect examples from our range include:

Midnight White Roller Blind

Lightstop White Vertical Blind

– Blocklight FR Optic White Vertical Blind

Cost and performance

Compared with branded projector screens, blackout blinds offer a far more cost-effective option without compromising on performance. Whether you are winding down after a long day at work, or you need a space to entertain the kids, using blackout blinds as a projector screen can transform your living room into your own private cinema.

For a quality projector screen surface, the blind needs to be completely flat so it doesn’t alter the image. Our winding mechanisms will create tension on the blinds, so you won’t need to worry about the surface moving or warping while you’re watching your favourite film!


Rather than running the risk of ordering blinds which are far too small or require cutting down to size, made-to-measure blinds will ensure your new blackout blinds fit perfectly within your window frame. Not only will this take away the stress and hassle of measuring and sourcing blinds yourself only to find they don’t fit, it will also prevent any light from filtering through and ruining the ambience inside the room.

Here at Kingston Blinds Direct, we have the specialist skills and equipment to accurately measure up for your new blinds, for a made-to-measure service which is second to none. Not only will this improve light control within your room, but it will also ensure the perfect fit for a movie screen if required.
