The Complete Guide to Blackout Curtains

Updated: 5 days ago

Does your job require you to work often at night? Are you concerned about not being able to get adequate sleep during the daytime? If you are worried about getting sufficient sleep and taking control of your privacy, we at MGL Curtain & Furnishing have the answer for all your worries – Blackout Curtains! But what exactly are these curtains, and how can they help you maintain privacy? This article will answer all these questions, and if you are looking for the ideal store to get this Night Curtain, we might know just the place for you.

Blackout Curtain: What is It?

Before we dive into exploring Blackout Curtains, let’s take a sneak peek at what Night Curtains are. But why Night Curtains? As the name implies, these curtains were designed to block out light and ensure privacy. However, in some cases, one may not want to block 100% of their light but still want privacy. It is for this reason that two different Night Curtains were made – Dim-out and Blackout Curtains. Dim-out Curtains do block around 95% of the light that comes into the room but still allow some light to pass through. They are ideal for individuals who need to maintain privacy but still enjoy slightly less opaque curtains which allow light transmission.

Blackout Curtains, on the other hand, completely block light (100%) and ensure total privacy. They are constructed from thicker, bulkier materials and are the best window treatment to drown out loud noises. So, if you want to stop traffic noise from disturbing you or have small kids that struggle to sleep peacefully and are disturbed by the slightest sounds, this is the perfect curtain for you.

Are Blackout Curtains Worth the Hype?

Blackout Curtains have certainly gained immense popularity among a majority of Singaporeans. But if you are wondering whether it is worth spending your hard-earned money on these types of curtains, let’s look at a list of benefits these curtains come with.

Privacy: As mentioned earlier, this is the key advantage of using this type of Night Curtain. Blackout Curtains not only block out light but they prevent anyone from being allowed to peek into your home or office. Even if you have your light on inside, when you close your Blackout Curtains, no one will be able to peer into your private space and distract or trouble you.

Blocks light: How can these curtains block out 100% of the light that enters through your windows? This seems essentially impossible, does it not? Well, not quite. The thick opaque fabric is weaved in such a way that they provide optimal protection from sunlight. So, does this mean all the Blackout Curtains are black? Will you not have any variety if you require privacy? Absolutely not! They come in a range of colours and patterns and will fit any theme or concept you want.

Noise reduction: We mentioned that these curtains could drown out loud sounds or noises, but how is this feature brought into action? Blackout Curtains are usually made from nylon or polyester and are manufactured by weaving a black yarn or fabric into the middle of the two sides of the fabric. This makes the material thick and dense and helps dampen any sounds. This attribute also works to block light from entering through the curtains. So, if you live in an urban area or a town that is heavily populated or experiences high noise levels in Singapore, this might be just the curtain for you and your family.

Energy efficiency: Just like our Day Curtains and blinds on offer at MGL Curtain & Furnishing, these Blackout Curtains are energy-efficient. This means it has insulation properties that can regulate the temperature indoors, thereby conserving your energy savings. For instance, if you need to stay inside on a particularly hot sunny day in Singapore, they will act as a barrier against heat gain, so you would not need to rely on your air conditioner often. Energy saving and cost-effective!

Apart from these benefits, there are many other advantages, including getting adequate sleep, offering maximum relaxation and comfort, and protection for your furniture (due to sunlight exposure). But this is not all! They also have the potential to offer you some health benefits like reduced depression due to better sleep, more relaxation, and low stress. These effects are typically associated with resting in a darker environment that can be provided by Blackout Curtains. So, what are you waiting for?
