Buy Custom Blackout Curtains in Singapore

Blackout curtains, also known as blockout or dim out curtains, essentially prevent sunlight or ambient light from entering the room. Benefits of including blackout curtains in your space include:

  • Enhanced health and wellness: These curtains are normally double-lined and tightly woven, effectively blocking external light and promoting a better night's sleep. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who work night shifts, have irregular sleeping patterns, or live in areas with excessive outdoor lighting.
  • Practical noise-cancellation: For first-time parents in Singapore, blackout curtains are especially beneficial for newborns who need to sleep for long stretches during the day. As blackout curtains come with great acoustic properties, these can be hung in nurseries to create a more calming environment and help the little one settle down for naptime.
  • Seamless ambience enhancement: Blackout curtains can also be used in other rooms of the house to create a variety of different effects. For example, you can have privacy curtains in your home theatre to create a truly immersive movie-watching experience.
  • Protection from UV rays: For homeowners who want to protect their furniture from sun damage, blackout curtains can help to reduce fading and ensure it stays looking new for longer. Besides extending the lifespan of your upholstery, you may also find heat-blocking or heat-reflective curtains useful to keep your rooms cool throughout the day.

Know Your Night Curtains

Night Curtains

Our night curtains can be tailor-made with varying degrees of light blockage, to prevent sunlight or street light from coming into your room. On top of this, it also serves as a light acoustic layer to muffle background noise from outside. When you custom-make your night curtains at Aratamete, you have the option to choose whether you want dim out or blackout curtains. 

1. Dim Out Curtains

If you prefer night curtains that don’t completely block out light you may opt for dim out curtains.

They’re great for the bedroom if you want curtains that provide you some shade to keep your resting place cosy. You can also opt for these in your home office or other parts of your home where you want to reduce sunlight rather than completely block it out. 

2. Blackout Curtains

Blackout curtains offer many advantages - they block out the sun and heat, help with indoor sound acoustics and create a degree of sound insulation from outside-in. 

Conventionally, the most common night curtain construction is a single layer night curtain fabric, these are called “laminated night curtains”. While we offer these, at Aratamete, our preferred construction method for blackout curtains comprise of 2 layers - first, the main fabric material (faces the room) and second, a high-grade 3-pass blackout fabric (lined behind) similar to the ones we often utilise in our luxury hospitality projects. While this method is slightly more costly, the method of lining the fabric with a high grade blackout lining is generally more durable than the conventional laminated night curtains and have a lifespan that is generally twice as long. 

The 3-pass Blackout lining which we use to line our curtain fabrics consists of a thick white lining fabric, high-density black yarn, and silicon finishing to completely keep the solar light away. We use tightly woven high-density yarn for better longevity and to prevent flaking or de-lamination. With these materials used, you can easily have them washed or cleaned. They also ensure protection for your other furnishings from sun damage

Why Should You Get Aratamete’s 3-Pass Blackout Curtains

  • Better longevity compared to single-layer laminated curtains. The lining consists of tightly woven high-density yarn, which is unlikely to flake or delaminate.
  • Easy to maintain. Our blockout curtains are washable and can be ironed.
  • Replaceable lining.
  • Stronger acoustic insulation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Blackout Curtains

Blackout, darkening, and privacy curtains serve similar purposes but have slight differences.

Blackout Curtains

It is essential to understand that blackout curtains come in two forms: 1) Single-layer laminated night curtains or 2) Blackout lined night curtains. At Aratamete, our default construction uses blackout lining. It is a more durable construction of night curtains compared to single-layer laminated night curtains and doesn’t have issues of delamination or pinhole light breaches.

Dimout Curtains

On the other hand, dim-out curtains are typically single-layer and provide a dimming effect to the room.

Privacy Curtains

Privacy curtains can be an umbrella term applied to any curtain with light or sound dimming capabilities. They are usually used to demarcate private zones in a home or space, making them ideal for bedrooms, nurseries, walk-in wardrobes, or bathrooms. The level of privacy afforded to you will depend on the respective material, thickness, and make of the curtains.

The choice between the three depends on the level of darkness desired in a room.

Do note that the existence of pelmets, the size of windows and the facing of the windows are factors that also affect whether full blackout can be achieved in the room.

Yes, blackout curtains block a significant amount of sunlight from entering the room, maintaining a comfortable indoor climate. However, you may still feel the heat from the sun’s rays. 

If you’re looking to reduce the temperature in your space, a heat-blocking or heat-reducing curtain may be the right choice instead. Heat-blocking curtains are typically made with heavily insulated fabrics like cotton, polyester, linen, or wool, enabling them to control and cool the temperature in a room. You can also layer them with day curtains for variable temperature and brightness control, particularly in living rooms.

Aratamete's 3-pass blackout curtains consist of thick white lining fabric, high-density black yarn, and silicone finishing. You can have the option to add on a blackout lining to any night curtain. The thick white lining fabric serves as the base layer. On top of that, high-density black yarn is woven into the fabric to enhance light absorption and prevent any light from seeping through the window. To further enhance their blackout properties, the curtains undergo a silicone finishing process. This makes our night curtains much stronger than single layer laminated night curtains. 

When it comes to deciding between night curtains or blinds for a room, it's vital to consider your specific needs and preferences.

Night Curtains

Night curtains, particularly those with blackout lining, offer superior light-blocking capabilities, making them an excellent choice for bedrooms, nurseries, or other rooms where darkness and privacy are desired.

Blinds

Blinds, on the other hand, offer a range of light control options depending on the material they’re made from. However, they typically do not provide complete blackout capabilities, as gaps can exist between the slats.

Choosing between the two often boils down to the level of darkness desired, aesthetic preferences, and any additional features you may require, such as noise cancellation or UV blocking. In summary, if your primary concern is achieving maximum darkness, night curtains may be the better choice, especially those with blackout lining. On the flip side, if you prefer a sleek and modern look with variable light control, blinds could be the ideal solution.
