Dimming a room doesn’t mean the same for everyone. In our industry, darkening is not synonymous with total blockage of incoming light. In the case of darkening window decoration, the incoming light is largely shielded by using darkening materials.
Dimming systems also offer you privacy in one fell swoop. Light incidence from outside that is limited, also implies the restriction of vision. In Belgium, privacy is rather highly regarded. That's why almost every room in a house has window decoration that can provide less light and less or no viewing. Roller shutters are becoming less and less popular in contemporary architecture. This also plays into the hands of darkening window decoration.
There are various options for dimming a room in almost every product group. We list them below for you!
PVC or aluminium slats darken the room in closed position. In the textile slats you can also choose a blackout fabric. In this case your window decoration will only darken the room in closed position.
Aluminium and wooden slats always have a darkening effect in closed position. Limited light comes through the perforations in the slats. With the aluminium slats you can also choose for a special privacy version that blocks even more light.
In our “blackout” catalogue you can find all fabrics with a blackout feature. When you choose for a standard roller blind, you will still have light coming through on the sides. A blackout fabric in combination with a blackout cassette will darken a room completely.
A duo roller blind isn’t an appropriate product to darken a room. For this type of window decoration you can choose a few dim-out fabrics, that will have a darkening effect in closed position.
Pleated blinds and Duette
For this type of window decoration you can choose fabrics with a darkening effect. This is clearly mentioned with the product features.

Even for the curtains translucent fabrics can be lined, or you can choose for a dim-out or a blackout fabric, thet block a lot of light even when they are not lined.
Actually practicaly every product has the possibility to darken a room (except for panel tracks). Incoming light at the top, on the sides and at the bottom of the product is hard to avoid. Only by using a blackout cassette a completely darkened room is possible. Pretty logic since a light proof frame is being formed around your window. Via brushes in the cassette, suide guides and a hem bar every bit of light is being blocked. The use of these systems is usualy limited to rooms where people sleep during the day, rooms in which projections are being given,
