Choose plantation shutters for a better blackout solution as these provide little light bleed and allow you full control over the level of sun light filtering in. Wooden shutters have become a timeless window dressing style for bedrooms, as they allow you to easily change the level of natural light in your room. With the louvres open and a blackout blind fully up, the natural light will filter into the room without the harsh full sunlight.
When you close the blackout shutters this provides a fantastic blackout blind solution, which will help you sleep through even the brightest summer mornings.

Blackout roller blinds
Our experts recommend avoiding blackout roller blinds or blackout vertical blinds if you are looking to achieve maximum blackout in a room. These blinds, including Venetian blinds allow light to filter in through the sides of the blind.
In comparison to the venetian and roller blinds, our blackout plantation shutters blackout a much greater volume of light.
