    Australia is one of the sunniest places in the world. As much as we enjoy those warm rays, sometimes we like to close off our home from the bright daylight.

    Regular curtains don't make the cut. They block some of the light streaming in, but there's still a lot getting through.

    If you're serious about controlling the light level in your home, window blockout curtains are the best option available.

    What Are Window Blockout Curtains?

    These curtains don't look all that different from your regular curtains. The main differences are that light blocking curtains tend to be of a thicker fabric.

    This is because the fabric itself has a special lining that blocks out the light from getting past. If you've used regular curtains in the past, you know that even if you close all of those small spaces, a warm glow of light still gets into the room.

    Blockout curtains, on the other hand, keep any light at all from getting through.

    Benefits of a Blockout Curtain

    These curtains are excellent at blocking out light from coming into your home's interior. Not only that, they also help out your home in a lot of other different ways as well.

    Protect Furniture and Flooring

    Sunlight is great, but it's dangerous as well. This is true for both you and your family, as well as your belongings.

    After extended exposure to sunlight, some flooring types and furniture will start to fade in colour. They'll lose their vibrancy and look a lot older. With the help of these curtains, however, you won't have to worry as much about the state of the interior of your home.

    Colourful Options Available

    The name "blockout curtain" makes it seem as though these curtains would only be available in the darkest of colours. If you're a fan of bright colours, you're in luck.

    These special curtains come in all kinds of different colours and patterns. You won't need to sacrifice your interior decorating when using these curtains.

    Helps in Heat Regulation + Energy Efficiency

    These curtains do more than controlling the amount of light coming into your home. They also help in blocking or keeping in heating or cooling.

    Windows influence the temperature of your house in a passive but significant way. But the curtains regulate this passive change in temperature.

    During the summer months, these curtains will keep the intense heat from seeping into your home and warming it up along with keeping in the cool temperature. But during the winter, the heat you warm your house with won't escape into the cold surrounding your home.

    These benefits also ensure you can reduce your energy bills and ultimately reduce your carbon footprint. It's a win win!

    Blockout Curtains Are the Bedroom's Best Friend

    There are a great many uses for these special window blockout curtains. Things like afternoon TV show binging and playing video games during the day all benefit. But by far the most popular is using them in a bedroom.

    Blockout or lined curtains often referred to as drapes, are Ideal for bedrooms when you want to obtain complete darkness for a good night's sleep. You really can’t go past blockout curtains with the addition of pelmets for complete light control and darkness for a bedroom.

    Napping children (and adults!) and late shift workers alike will be thankful for these curtains in their room.

    Not To Forget Theatre Rooms

    There are many window coverings to choose from for theatre rooms but time and time again interior designers always opt for custom made blockout curtains with the addition of custom-made pelmets for theatre or TV rooms.

    They are the ultimate choice to create complete darkness in a room to allow you to create a real theatre ambiance. You can also ensure the curtains are made slightly longer in length so they sit on the floor to ensure light doesn’t enter underneath.

    Windows tend to act as focal points when it comes to interior design. Because of this, it's important to tie them in with the rest of your decor, and the best way to do that is by adding curtains.

    Curtains carry a surprising amount of weight in interior design. They can serve to highlight accent colours, add depth, and even control the amount and shade of natural light in the room.

    But, due to the sheer number of colours and styles curtains come in, choosing the best kind for your living room can be a daunting task.

    Whether you're getting ready to redecorate, or you're looking to swap out your current set and are feeling a bit overwhelmed, we're here to help.

    Here are four elegant curtain ideas that are sure to look fantastic in any space to help you get started.

    Calming Sheer

    There's something about the image of delicate, light sheer curtains swaying in the breeze that is undeniably calming.

    Sheer curtains offer the natural light lover a way to accent your windows or add a little colour, all while keeping that calming soft sunlit glow.

    If you lean more toward a lighter, cleaner feel in your decorating, then sheer curtains are the best choice for you.

    Custom Pelmets

    If you want to accent a window without covering it up, a pelmet could be the perfect middle ground solution. They are the preferred accessory by interior designers to layer above curtains.

    A patterned pelmet can add a touch of vibrant, even tropical, elegance to a room. You can use a pelmet to emphasise a specific accent colour or tie everything together with a vibrant print.

    Pelmets also aid in framing your windows and framing the view outside. Not to mention the benefits they offer in energy efficiency as they trap the warm or cool air from leaving or entering your home to ensure that you can keep your home at the right temperature and save on your energy costs.

    Detailed Prints

    Prints have recently made a triumphant comeback in the world of interior design, and it doesn't look like they're going anywhere soon.

    Whether you favour a striking geometric pattern or a detailed toile, print curtains allow you to express your style in a bold yet elegant way.

    Prints can be as loud or as subtle as you like, depending on your style preference. So, if you'd like the texture and depth of a print, you can get that without having to go overboard on colour.

    Rich Minimalism

    There's a reason minimalism has become trendy in recent years. But, just because you want to keep things simple, that doesn't mean you can't indulge in a little decadence.

    If you favour light, minimalistic style, try adding a mono-coloured curtain in your decor to create a simple but highly elegant look.

    Swag your curtains over the curtain rod, without rings or hooks, for an extra chic but simple design.

    Elegant Curtain Ideas

    Curtains can be an attractive and practical way to tie a room together once you know which kind you'd like to get.

    Now that you have a few new curtain ideas in mind, it's time to start decorating.

    Whether you decide to go with a bright and breezy sheer or a rich and vivid print, we can help.

    We have hundreds of different patterns, styles, and designs available, so you're sure to find exactly what you're looking for.
