Top 3 Blackout Room Darkening Curtains under $25

Utopia Bedding Blackout Curtains GreyThere are many situations making you wish that your home can be darkened totally. Some reasons are outside your home, some are inside. You might live in an apartment where a strong streetlight lightens up your bedroom. Or you want to darken a room because you need to sleep during day.

These are just two of many reasons why you want to get blackout curtains. These room darkening curtains have so many advantages that it‘s really difficult to look further once you found the best curtain for your personal situation. I took a closer look at these curtains and can give some thoughts and tips around them.

Most of the available blackout curtains are said to block out up to 99% sunlight which is really impressive. You might add here that they block out any outdoor streetlight or other flashlights. While blocking the sunlight these blackout curtains also block UV rays. And they block outdoor noises in a remarkable quantity. Alone these features make them great for urban living.

These room darkening curtains block any sorts of outdoor temperature, may it be hot or cold, and create a very agreeable constant indoor temperature.

The side effect of keeping a pleasant indoor temperature is the energy efficiency of blackout curtains. You won‘t waste any money on heating or cooling and will see a reduction in your electricity bill of up to 30%.

Having these blackout curtains keeps the sunlight out and makes your room so comfortably dark that every film watching will be enjoyable.

Most of the available room darkening curtains come in a big variety of colors and sizes and show a high quality of fabric and grommets. There is a difference of blocking out sunlight between the different colors. Darker colors have a better blackout effect which might vary from 90% to 99%.

Don‘t forget to measure the size of your window where you want to hang your new blackout curtains to make sure that the curtains will cover the whole window. It‘s better when the curtains are longer than the window.

These curtains are absolutely gorgeous. They are a luxurious, soft, thick material and the color is beautiful. I have had them up for a week and have already received so many complements.

These curtains are made of a very thick, heavy, quality material that hangs nicely. Best of all, these are true blackouts! I highly recommend these!

These are beautiful curtains! Nice fabric, thick but very soft to the touch. They definitely do a great job at blocking the sun light and keeping my room dark and cool. Good quality stitching, nice tie backs.

The quality is great. I bought two sets of the navy blue- one for each window for our bedroom. The metal grommets are a bronze color which match nicely with the blue. The material feels kind of silky, but it’s not shiny or cheap looking.

Works great. Super thick and keeps out all the light! Worth the price and the buying. I would recommend these curtains over any thing else here.

This are truly blackout curtains! The room with these curtains is total darkness when these are pulled closed. Definitely a great edition to any room where darkness is needed.

Let’s start with quality. Thick but with a very smooth feeling. Blocks out all the light. You can definitely tell they are going to last awhile because this quality is fantastic! I would buy again in a heartbeat!

High quality, heavy weight and love that they are grommets which will stand up to heavy use. Guests love the black out curtains and they are so much better than blinds. For the cost these can not be beat.

Bought these for my bedroom and they are absolutely what I needed! Very high quality!

    A well presented article Cecilia. We have blackout curtains on our larger windows up here in Canada mostly for avoiding heat loss during the night time. There is a noticeable difference when they are drawn. I am also impressed how well they do block out the street lights. 🙂
