Does this look familiar? Are you pounding down energy drinks or pots of coffee while at work?
In a 24 hour town like Las Vegas working at night isn’t out of the ordinary however getting sleep when the bright Vegas sun is shinning can be a challenge. Las Vegas averages about 270 sunny days out of the year making sleeping in the day nearly impossible, unless you have custom blackout drapes.
Custom blackout drapes prevent light from entering through a window. Specific high quality linings are combined and constructed as drapery or hung separately on multiple curtain rods. To prevent any light bleed around the edges, a valance lined with the same blackout material is hung above the custom blackout drapes. Custom blackout drapes aren’t only for those who need to sleep in the day.

Custom blackout drapes materials
Blackout lining is a fabric that has had an acrylic foam sprayed on the surface. This acrylic foam is sprayed several times to completely cover the porous material. This acrylic prevents light from passing through the fabric. This is the most effective method for reducing the light entering a window.
A black layer of fabric, usually heavy cotton or flannelet, is sandwiched between the fabric of the drapes and the lining. This method is not as effective as blackout lining but is a great alternative.
Similar to blackout lining, an acrylic foam is sprayed on fabric in a light layer vs several layers. This allows some light to enter but disallowing shadows if the inhabitants are back-lit. This is a great idea for someone who would like less light but not completely blacked out drapes.
