Blackout blinds, or curtains, are now back in fashion and are no more like their previous versions. This modern twist in their design has made them something you would definitely want right away. Let’s have a look at how far blackout blinds have come to appreciate their beauty.
Blackout blinds were first used in Britain during the World War II. They prevented light escaping from windows. The purpose of these dark drapes was to protect civilians against the constant threat of air strike bombings. The war passed, but the curtains remained in use. People got used to the privacy they gave and so they never went out of fashion. They can black almost 99% of sunlight and this makes them excellent insulators, keeping the house warm in winters.
The newest designs in blackout drapes and blinds can transform any window into a metropolis skyline.
