If you’ve ever woken up in frustration to light streaming through your window, it’s probably time to reevaluate your blind choices. Certain blinds are more effective than others at blocking out the light, and it’s important to choose an option that caters to your light control and privacy requirements.

Here’s some blackout blinds that will ensure a good night’s sleep:

Roller blinds

Roller blinds are some of the most popular blackout blinds available. Featuring a piece of fabric that rolls up into a cassette, they offer a clean and fuss-free appearance, making them perfect for adding a modern touch to any home. Suitable for most rooms including entryways, dining rooms and conservatories, this is a versatile choice that can accommodate most interiors.

Roman blinds

Roman blinds offer a more delicate look. Consisting of one strip of fabric that folds in layers when the blind is raised, they provide a pleated look that offers depth and texture to rooms. These blinds suit larger spaces and add an elegant, refined finish to your living space. An additional bonus is that many thermal blinds also offer thermal insulation, ensuring you’ll save money on energy bills by trapping heat inside in the winter and keeping it out in the summer.

Vertical blinds

Blackout vertical blinds are the perfect choice for glass doors, particularly in living rooms, offices and conservatories. Whether you’d like to have greater light control or more privacy, these blinds – quite literally – have you covered. Vertical blinds feature slats that run from top to bottom and are made with vertical vanes that block out light. They’re low maintenance, easy to clean and are especially good at catering to rooms with tall windows.

Skylight blinds

Especially popular with attic bedrooms, these blinds feature a side rail that secures the fabric to prevent it from hanging down. You won’t find any light filtering through the edges and so will be able to enjoy a complete blackout experience. Skylight blinds usually feature opaque material that holds insulating properties, meaning you’ll be kept warm throughout winter while being able to minimise excessive heat in the summer.

Day & Night blinds

Day and Night blinds are a flexible option that offer blackout properties, but not for the entire blind. Instead, you’ll find two fabric layers that are laid on top of one another. When you raise or lower the control mechanism, the layers move in opposite directions. This adjustability offers great light control options and is also less fuss to operate than having to fiddle with multiple blackout curtains and window dressings to get your preferred outcome.
