Why choose Heritage Blinds & Shutters?
Frequently asked questions
What are blockout curtains?
Blockout curtains consist of a dense or layered material, such as velvet, felt or suede, to keep out light by approximately 85% to 100%, depending on the fabric.
There are two types of blockout curtains:
- Blockout coated curtains use an affordable face fabric that has been coated with rubber and polymer before being fused dry through heating rolling.
- Blockout lined curtains include a face fabric and a separate blockout fabric attached at the heading for maximum insulation and light absorption. Lined curtains are favoured for their sumptuous drape and softer feel.
How dark will a room be if I hang blockout curtains?
With the right blockout curtains, you can expect your room to be very dark. Creating the perfect setting for a peaceful slumber, these curtains are designed to minimise external light transfer and protect your flooring, furniture and fixtures from UV damage.
Can you layer a sheer curtain with a blockout curtain?
Yes. Many of our customers choose to layer sheer curtains over blockout curtains for unrivalled light, privacy and temperature control.

How do you hang blockout curtains?
To keep out as much light as possible, your blockout curtains need to cover your whole window – including its outer edges, header and footer. Therefore, it’s usually best to hang your blockout curtains on the outside of your window recess.
At Heritage Blinds & Shutters, our blockout curtain specialists offer complimentary measuring and fitting at your property to ensure the perfect fit. Book a consultation to arrange a date and time that works for you.
How do you wash blockout curtains?
To spot clean your blockout curtains, use a cloth to dab the fabric gently with a mixture of warm water and mild soap. Avoid using harsh chemicals such as bleach, which may damage the material.
To prevent dirt and dust buildup, vacuum the fabric lightly on a regular basis.
