Room Darkening Curtains FAQs

How do room darkening curtains work?

Room darkening fabric (or triple weave fabric) is a unique curtain material that offers light-blocking and thermal insulating properties - without the acrylic backing or lining that's used in other curtain styles. If you've ever held a piece of cloth up to a window or lamp, you'll notice light can easily pass through the spaces in the weave. In comparison, triple weave curtain fabric is made up of three layers, including a middle layer of black-coloured yarns. The three layers are interwoven to create a structure that's very hard for light and air to pass through. As a rule of thumb, room darkening curtains provide at least 85% light blockout.

Room darkening vs blackout curtains: what's the difference?

Room darkening curtains and blockout curtains offer very similar benefits like privacy and insulation. Compared to triple weave curtains, blockout curtains have three layers of acrylic coating on the reverse, meaning that light essentially cannot pass through it. If you're looking for a curtain guaranteed to completely darken your room, opt for blockout. A wonderful advantage of room-darkening curtains, however, is their superior draping qualities. Without the rubberised coating, the fabric is free to gently flow without the stiffer structure associated with blackout and thermal curtain fabrics.

How to washroom darkening curtains

The best way to launder your room darkening curtains is by hand, as the fabric is very delicate. This is especially important when it comes to washing room darkening eyelet curtains, as machine laundering can loosen the metal eyelets. Always refer to the care label on your curtains for specific care instructions.
