The main idea behind blackout is to be able to block out as much daylight or harsh street-lighting as possible, as well as offering even more privacy compared to other blinds. This is great in many situations, such as those bright mornings that flood your bedroom with daylight or offering more privacy in a downstairs toilet. To achieve the blackout effect, blinds are fitted with a thicker fabric that helps to block out as much natural light as possible, helping to keep a room darker and cooler.
