Blackout Shutter and Blinds Specialists in Essex
Before bespoke shutters of this style, most people would attempt to achieve total blackout with big, heavy curtains — but there’s no need! Our innovative blackout shutter offer an unrivalled blackout effect and provide the perfect solution for light sleepers or anyone else who requires a pitch-black room.
Why Choose Blackout Shutters?
While most shutters do bleed light, to some degree, as they are made of wood and the slats do not touch and therefore creating space for light to pass through — this isn’t an issue with our blackout shutters.
These clever shutters have a built-in channel behind the frame that snugly and discreetly houses a blackout blind. This prevents pretty much all of the light from bleeding through and allows you to achieve almost pitch-black when you need to. And lets be honest, who wouldn’t want that?
When open, the discreet honeycomb blackout blind is hardly noticeable as it raises to disappear behind the door, and your shutters will look just like any other wooden plantation shutters. But when you need darkness, you can shut the nifty blind to block out almost all of the daylight. With blackout shutter blinds, you get the best of both worlds.
You might ask why though? This is a crucial solution for light sleepers, people who work night shifts or those of you who suffer from migraines or similar conditions.
