Before we talk about blackout vertical blinds, let us discuss what the term “blackout” means. When it comes to window dressing solutions, blackout means two things. In the most basic sense, when we talk about blackout blinds, it means that the fabric used to manufacture the window covering is totally opaque, which means no light passes through the fabric. The second refers to what is known as a "blackout experience." It is not enough that the material or fabric blocks light, it is also important how the window treatments fit within your window casing. The best blackout experience includes the combination of an opaque window covering that is made to the exact specifications of your window casing.
A great alternative to using traditional heavy curtains to control the amount of light entering the room or completely eliminate it is to use blackout blinds. Using machine washable fabrics, these blinds are a perfect solution for rooms that often act as light-traps and ultimately prohibit activities that need a darker setting like TV, movies and gaming.
The simplest solution designed to keep any visible light away from penetrating through a window into a room is blackout vertical blinds. The best vertical blinds in this category in the market in the UK are systems that have been designed to exclude the maximum amount of visible light as practically possible and are those that come closest to blocking 100% of visible light. In reality, any good blackout blind system should appear to exclude 100% of light visible to the naked eye when closed.
