How to Get the Look You Love with Blackout Curtains

blackoutBlackout drapes are a great way to make your room a more cozy sleeping space. They help to block out artificial light and noise and to insulate your room to stabilize temperatures, all of which helps you to get more peaceful sleep so that you are truly refreshed when you wake up in the morning.

Many people shy away from using blackout curtains because they feel that their options are limited. They think that they can only get blackout curtains in the color black or in thick, heavy tapestries. Neither of these is true. Here are a few ways that you can easily get the look you love with blackout curtains so that you can create the design you want while also reaping the benefits of these great curtains:


Experiment with Color

Blackout curtains actually come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. You aren’t just limited to black. Experiment with color to help draw the elements of your room’s decor together and to set the tone for the space. Different colors can also have an effect on your mood. For example, yellow is a cheery color, while blue is peaceful and serene. Experiment with your choices to find what looks the best and makes the room feel cozy and inviting.


Select Unique Designs

If you want a thick, heavy tapestry, you can certainly get it. However, blackout curtains are also available in a wide variety of other designs, including swags, valances, grommets, and tiers. By experimenting with the design of the curtains you choose, you can create a look that is formal and sophisticated or stylish and inviting. Select a unique design that conveys the look and feel you want to create.


Use a Blackout Panel as a Backdrop

If you want a style or color of curtain that you just can’t find available as a blackout curtain, you can still get the design you want and the benefits of a blackout curtain by simply selecting a blackout panel as a backdrop. Use it as the underlayer, and then hang whatever curtain you like on top of it. People will see the other curtain, but the blackout curtain underneath will do its job at blocking out the light and helping to insulate the room.

You don’t have to be limited in your choices for blackout curtains. Use these tips to help you create the look you love with blackout curtains in any room in your home.
