Blackout: Why Choose Shutters With Integrated Blinds?

Shutters with integrated blinds can make all the difference when it comes to blocking out unwanted light.

The constant stream of sensory input that comes with day-to-day life can be overwhelming. When all you want is to turn everything off and go to sleep, light pollution can often play havoc on your REM cycle. Streetlights, summer sunsets, and the light from other homes are the most common culprits when it comes to light pollution.

So, how do shutters with integrated blinds help you in blocking out that unwanted light? Let’s take a look at how shutters with integrated blinds can come together to shed some darkness on this age-old problem.

Double Layered Protection


Shutters are without doubt the strongest agent when it comes to blocking out unwanted light. A solid material allows no light through, unlike the fabrics that come with a set of blinds. However, shutters have slats to allow light in by choice and, even when closed, still let some light in.

This is where integrated blinds come in. By diffusing the light entering your home before it even encounters your shutters, it prevents, or at least heavily reduces the amount of light that enters your room.


If you are concerned about the amount of light that enters your room at night, then there is a good chance that you also don’t appreciate noise either. Whether you are living in the city and trying to block out the sound of traffic, or in the country and averse to birdsong, its always important to have a way to keep noise pollution out of your home.

One of the key selling points of shutters is that they are better at keeping out noise than blinds.

So why not have both?

With separate layers of fabric and solid wood insulating your home, you can focus on what really matters. Sleeping.


Two layers of protection mean that there is much more resistance to heat. The more difficult it is for heat to travel in and out of your home, the easier it is to keep warm during those cold winter months.
