Why Choose Blockout Eyelet Curtains For Your Home?
Blockout eyelet curtains are a great choice for homeowners who are looking for a window dressing option that not only looks great, but also allows you to maintain control over light availability in all the interior spaces throughout your home where these curtains have been installed.
Because of their easy, low-maintenance hang alongside their superior light control capabilities, Quickfit’s blockout eyelet curtains are perfect for children’s bedrooms, nurseries, home theatres and any other room in your home that’s functionality will be boosted by reducing the amount of light entering during daylight hours.
On top of light control, our blockout eyelet curtains also boast noise and heat insulation capabilities, all thanks to their thicker triple weave or multi-layered design that comes with an insulatory foam backing. Both our thermal weave and thermal layer blockout eyelet curtains are thick enough to act as a heat seal when fully covering your windows, allowing you and your family to stay warm during the winter months.
Whether you’re after eyelet blockout curtains for your bedroom to help you sleep soundly on cold winter nights, or blockout eyelet curtains for your home theatre space to enhance your home entertainment experience, our selection here at Quickfit is sure to have you (and your windows!) covered.
How Do Blockout Eyelet Curtains Work?
As we mentioned earlier our blockout eyelet curtains can be designed using one of two methods. These methods are:
Using thermal weave technology
Using thermal layer technology
Thermal weave technology uses a tight triple weave to firmly keep all external light out of your home’s interiors when your blockout eyelet curtains are fully drawn. Thermal weave blockout eyelet curtains are made using three separate curtain layers that are tightly woven together into one thicker curtain panel, hence the term ‘triple weave technology’.
Contrastingly, thermal layer technology involves adding a white foam backing the inner side of a regular curtain panel. The white foam layer reflects external light rather than absorbing light, allowing these particular blockout eyelet curtains to boast superior temperature regulation capabilities.
Both thermal weave and thermal layer technology come with their own pros and cons. For instance, thermal layer blockout eyelet curtains may be better for not only keeping your home warm in the winter, but also cooler during the summer. The downside to thermal layer blockout eyelet curtains, however, is that their foam backing makes these curtain panels non-machine washable.
How To Measure & Install Your Blockout Eyelet Curtains
In order for your blockout eyelet curtains to block a maximum amount of light, you will need to ensure that they are measured and installed correctly. To achieve this, you need to make sure that your blockout eyelet curtains are wide enough to meet in the middle when drawn, because this will stop light leaking into your home’s interiors from any gaps in the middle of your blockout eyelet curtain panels. You can ensure that your blockout eyelet curtains are wide enough to fill the gap between your curtain panels by adding an extra 30-40cm to your window measurements when ordering any of our made to measure curtains here at Quickfit.
You should also hang your blockout eyelet curtains on curtain rods or tracks that are wider than your windows, allowing the curtains to cover the entire width and thus, perform as an effective seal. Simply put, having a curtain track or rod that’s wider than your window will stop light leaking in via the outer edges of your window frame.
As our blockout eyelet curtains are designed to hang on our standard 36 mm diameter curtain rods, you’ll need to ensure that all your window frames provide enough header space for these curtain rods to be installed prior to ordering your blockout eyelet curtains.
Once your curtain rods are installed, you can finally hang your new set of blockout eyelet curtains and enjoy all the superior light, noise, and temperature control capabilities immediately.
