Well today, I put an end to the guessing!
Blackout is an actual curtain while Blockout is a detachable lining that you attach to any curtain or to a separate rail behind any curtain. At the moment Volpes has quite a few different colours available in Blackout and soon we will have a range of beautiful patterned Blackout curtains. Blackout has a lovely thick feel to it and comes in the normal Volpes curtain sizes. Blockout is only available in white and it is much narrower than Blackout.
Have a look at the table below, showing all the differences
and similarities between the two:
And now for the price difference:
So as you can see from the price, Blackout is a definite curtain that can function on its own and look great, while the Blockout is an “add on”, suitable for any taped curtain.
