How to Hang Blackout Curtains

When it comes to hanging blackout curtains, we’re not shy about encouraging people to hang them high and wide to visually enlarge the window and add height and drama to any space. Just as influential as paint on the walls, nothing makes a room look more finished than a few floor-to-ceiling curtain panels. This also greatly decreases the amount of light the curtains let in around the edges! For the appearance of taller ceilings and a larger window, mount the curtain rod close to the ceiling, 8-12 inches above or as high up as possible. The curtains' bottom edge should lightly graze the floor wherever it falls. Make sure your curtain rod is wide enough that when the curtains are pulled open, only their inner edges line up with the window frame—not including any glass surfaces. Eight to ten inches from either side of the window frame is ideal.

Iron or Steam Curtains

Loomwell Home Good's blackout curtains are expertly crafted with heavy-duty linen blend fabric. The fabric is extremely dense making full blackout possible! Because of the dense fabric, wrinkles from storage and shipment often stick around. Make sure you grab your iron or steamer and give those wrinkles some attention!

Use Blackout Curtains for Any Room

We often get asked if blackout curtains are just for bedrooms and bathrooms. The answer? Absolutely not! While our blackout curtains were made with the sleeping room in mind, they’re also perfect for any space where you want to block visual and audible distractions. Think: nurseries, media rooms, home offices, studios — anywhere light distraction could get in the way of your best work or play.

Installing blackout curtains also helps regulate temperature and reduce noise. If you’re looking for a great way to get some peace and quiet, or just block out the outside world, check out Loomwell Home Goods today! We have a great selection of blackout curtains to fit any style or room.

How to Care for Blackout Curtains

Blackout curtains can get a little dirty from time to time, but that’s nothing a good vacuum and a quick touch-up with your iron can’t fix.

To clean blackout curtains, start by vacuuming them to remove any dust or dirt build-up. Then use a damp towel to clear away any stains or marks on the surface of the fabric. If there are stubborn spots that won’t wash out, try a few drops of dishwashing liquid mixed with warm water. Allow the curtains to air dry or use a hair dryer on the lowest setting for a few minutes.
