It’s not common to know what a blackout shade is. These curtains have only come into popularity during the last 50 years. Blackout shades were created during During World War II when it was necessary to ‘blackout’ a city during the day time in order to avoid being raided. This was the beginning of blackout shades. Blackout shades have come along way. Now they are a popular necessity for Netflix & Chill, night time workers and daytime sleepers.
Modern blackout shades are made from dark cotton with an ultra light weave that keeps out 99% of light out. The dark cotton is woven between colored fabric in order to keep a creative appeal. These heaven sent shades also keep out heat and harmful UV rays. Another popular name are room darkening shades. They offer insulation against outside noise, perfect for a fussy baby or whoever likes to sleep in.
Blackout shades can be added to any other window treatment. They are commonly complimented by draperies and illusion shades to add an alluring design. Blackout shades were not intended to be designer shades as their primary function is protection to keep light out. However, they have come a long way and can now come in many colors, prints and with accessories to compliment your design style.
