It is a fairly simple and easy exercise to create the perfect environment. The key is providing:

  • elimination of external light
  • an optimal acoustic environment

Blockout Curtains will achieve both of these. They are readily available in all sorts of colours, fabrications, and styles to suit almost every conceivable interior decor. A Blockout Curtain is just that, they block out light and absorb sound. There are several options on the market, but the simplest are made from a woven fabric with 3 layers of foam coating applied to the reverse. The coating is white in colour which provides good street appeal from the outside and reflects the sun. They are available in almost any fabrication, style, and colour. Whether you are after a modern, no fuss look like the eyelet style curtain or a more traditional curtain with pleats and gathers, there is sure to be a style for you. 

Ready Made Curtains are an easy solution and are very cost effective with prices starting from under $25.00 a panel, or if you are after the lush very full look then Custom Made to Measure Curtains can be made starting at $95.00 and delivered to your door within 2 weeks.
