Everyone likes options in their living room, bedroom, dining room, and even the sunroom. A well-designed house should adapt to your lifestyle choices while keeping you warm in winter and cool during the summer months.
Glass captures sunlight, transparently increasing the heat and dramatically warming up any room capturing direct rays. Curtains play a huge role in controlling a room’s temperature.
With the right blackout curtains in place, you can be curling up like a contented cat in winter and enjoy tropical afternoon breezes all summer long. The Amart Furniture collection is a great place to start your search, with more than 22 room darkening curtains and blockout blind products to choose from.
If you are tired of waking up to sunlight flickering on your face, or you’re having trouble distinguishing the movie from the glaring sunshine reflecting on the screen, it may be time to invest in blackout thermal curtains. Blackout (blockout) often refers to double-lined drapes made from tightly woven fabric.
A true blackout curtain is designed to block light almost completely in bedrooms, nurseries, home theatres, and any other room where you want to control the bright Australian sunlight. Some of the most popular blockout curtains are single and duo roller blinds that can quickly and conveniently add light or shade to the room.
Firstly, make sure to accurately measure the window before purchasing. You should also consult with a professional to ensure proper installation. Amart Furniture can assist from start to finish. An easy way to layer sheer curtains and blackout curtains is by purchasing a duo two-in-one roller blind. Switching from sheer to blockout takes only moments!
Consider installing layered window treatments for maximum darkness in the room, and check out different window curtains, sheers, and blackout curtains with tiebacks for the appropriate layered curtain effect. And remember, blackout curtains can be white!
Start by browsing the Amart Furniture collection online or in-store. You’ll find eyelet curtains, rod pocket curtains, and tab top curtains in a variety of fabric types and colours, from white to stone or dark grey.
Blackout Curtains: The main benefit of blackout curtains is that they block light better than any other curtain. Benefits include:
Room Darkening Curtains: Room Darkening curtains may be the solution in your home. Here are some benefits:
Light Filtering Curtains: These curtains are lighter and thinner than blackout curtains and room-darkening curtains. They are made from a more loosely woven fabric that lets light fill a room with a warm, soothing glow, without the need for artificial lighting. Benefits include:
If you need to dim the lights in your bedroom, home theatre, lounge room, nursery, or anywhere else in your home, blackout curtains, room-darkening curtains, and light-filtering curtains are the answer.
Long blackout curtains and short blackout curtains have a double or triple acrylic blackout lining which provides both thermal insulated properties and sunlight defence. For this reason, not all curtain draperies are machine washable. It’s always best to check the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions and, where appropriate, get them professionally cleaned. However, there are a few home-cleaning hacks worth knowing:
1: Dust your blackout curtains with the vacuum while the curtains are still hanging.
2: Spot clean problem spots on your curtains with mild soap and water.
3: Clean your curtains in a bath of warm soapy water. Rinse, hand-wring them, then hang to dry.
