Light and Shade Choices for Your Room

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.

Discover practical blackout curtains

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.

How to layer sheer and blackout curtains

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!

Choosing the right window curtains

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:

  • Improve energy efficiency by insulating the room
  • Thick enough to soften external noise
  • Available in a wide range of sizes and colours
  • Increase privacy better than other curtain types
  • Protect furniture and valuables from the sun’s rays
  • Eliminate glare on TV screens and computer monitors.

Room Darkening Curtains: Room Darkening curtains may be the solution in your home. Here are some benefits:

  • Not as thick as blackout curtains, therefore they cost less
  • Privacy, energy savings, blocking noise and protecting furniture
  • Darken a room significantly without a full blackout effect.

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:

  • Complement existing curtains or blinds
  • Allow a cooling breeze to pass through
  • Lightweight and easy to install
  • Reduce reliance on electric light sources.

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.

Cleaning blackout curtains

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.

Benefits of blackout curtains

Customers choose high-quality light-blocking curtains from Amart Furniture because of the following benefits:

  • Filtering out light - Stop lights from passing cars and other unwanted glare from entering your room. Sleep more peacefully without the sun shining on your bed.
  • Filtering out noise - Cut back on traffic and neighbourhood noise, such as kids playing in the street, loud music and machinery. Turn your space into your own private oasis free from outside disturbance.
  • Saving energy - Use blackout window curtain panels economically by opening them in winter when the room needs warming and closing them in the heat of summer to protect from glare and discolouration of floors and furniture.
  • Long-term investment - Blackout curtains for bedroom windows, quality curtains for living rooms, plus nursery blackout curtains for the little one are a good investment. These curtains are heavy-duty, durable, resilient, strong and sturdy. When mounted on appropriate curtain rods and properly installed, your blackout curtain panels are tough enough to take on the might of the sun.
