Custom Room Darkening / Blackout Drapes

Room darkening drapes can not only reduce energy costs, but they can also protect furniture, flooring, and furnishings from the damaging rays of the sun.

People sometimes shy away from blackout drapes, because they believe that adding this functionality may reduce the beauty of the drapes. But it doesn’t have to! Today’s options in blackout drapes are nothing like the stiff, hotel drapes most people are familiar with.

We can fabricate beautiful, lined drapes for you that will help keep a room dark and private. In the past, blackout fabric was only available in dark colors, but the special lining now comes in lighter colors, even white.

Today’s light block linings include “blackout” and “dimout” choices. A foam product is sprayed onto one side of the cloth. One coating equals a “pass,” with blackout linings getting 3 passes, and dimout linings getting 1 pass.

As with any lining we add to custom draperies, blackout lining can extend the life of the drapes, make the drapes hang better, and make them look richer. As an added bonus, blackout linings can also help block out noise and insulate a window, keeping rooms cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Blackout drapes are popular in the following rooms:

  • Bedrooms (particularly kids’ bedrooms)
  • Home theaters and media rooms
  • Any room that gets a lot of sun

We can custom-fabricate a variety of blackout drapes and window treatments, including:
