The buzz around blockout blinds – The Blinds Spot Co

September 26, 2016

Blockout blinds are a name given to a type of roller blind where the fabric in use is solid and opaque, designed to stop the sunlight in its tracks. Coming in a wide range of colours, and offering a very simple, attractive visual, blockout blinds are one of the most popular types of blinds in Melbourne. Perfect for summer, and helping to keep the heat in during winter, they are almost directly suited for our weather patterns.

But the many benefits of blockout blinds don’t just stop here. These blinds are incredibly versatile in working arrangement and placement. We’ve even seen purpose built, outdoor variants keeping covered patio areas cool during hot weather. In this article, we’re going to cover three of the major points on why blockout blinds are so popular, and why they are fantastic for use in practically any type of home.

Combine them with a dual roller

There is a common myth that the choice of blockout blinds will restrict homeowners to only having two options; light, or no light. However, this is not the case, as when they are used in a dual roller unit, a more lighter option can be used to filter the sunlight through. This allows for more flexibility than most blind options, whilst also allowing you to tailor your room’s interior look to your heart’s content.

Works with new and old design

The simple make up of blockout blinds makes them quite versatile in the type of buildings that they will work with. Whether the building is a more modern design, or it is from the older, period era style of homes, these blinds work with what’s around them perfectly. Particularly in older homes, which feature curved or domed window fronts, these blinds can often create a unique display area, ideal for further decoration or for creating space.

Privacy kept to a maximum

Apart from the imposing structure of a roller, there are no better types of blinds at keeping noise and prying eyes out than blockout blinds. These blinds are frequently being used at the front of buildings, both offices and homes, and will completely cut out any open space and possible line of sight. Outdoor tempered blockout blinds can also offer this high state of privacy for covered patio and verandah areas.
