Black-Out vs Block-Out

Know-Your-Home-Blackout-vs-Blockout-HEADERWe have had so many queries about Block Out Lining and
Black out Curtains…
What is the difference between the two?

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.

I hope this has been informative and helpful, if you would like any more details please email me: [email protected]
