“Block out curtains with pelmets offer the ideal solution to reduce glare and sunlight. Our team will always recommend the best option for you based on your functional needs, as well as offer a broad range of textiles to suit your tastes.”
— Bev Timms
While light flow is a desirable commodity when it comes to your home, it is also very beneficial to be able to block light out. This is especially useful in media rooms, bedrooms and even nurseries where light can become a burden rather than a benefit.
As you can see, block out curtains can significantly block out light so you can enjoy your rest or movie in peace. Block out curtains are usually multi-layered with opaque interfacing which completely blocks out the light.
The position of your room can also make a difference as to how much light weep occurs. Bev Timms and her team will evaluate your room before your custom made curtains are fitted and recommend a pelmet and/or other window treatments to ensure maximum light control.
In this image, you’ll be able to see that the window is not fitted with a pelmet, while the first image is. Light weep is significantly greater in the second image without a pelmet as there is nothing blocking the light coming out the top of the window. A pelmet paired with a block out curtain can give you almost complete darkness which is why our team may recommend a pelmet if eradicating light is your goal.
There are many benefits of block out curtains including:
Block out curtains can also be layered to achieve noise reduction as well as the ability to block out the sun. This is a great option for media rooms as the sun and noises surrounding your home won’t impair your enjoyment.
As you can see, roller blinds and Venetian blinds simply don’t block out enough sun if that is your goal. In a kitchen or sun room this light weep is okay but when it comes to your bedroom, media room or nursery you may want the room to be as dark as possible.
