Benefits of Blackout Curtains
Blackout curtains provide a variety of benefits that will add to the comfort of your RV:
- Promote a better night’s sleep. Blackout curtains block all light. Whether the rising sun wakes you each morning or fluorescent lamps keep you up at night, blackout curtains will help you sleep more soundly by blocking out light and creating total darkness.
- Keep your RV cool. When the sun is beating down on your RV, it can heat up pretty quickly. Since blackout curtains block the sun’s rays, they also block the sun’s heat. This can help to cool your RV.
- Maintain privacy. Blackout curtains are completely opaque, providing you with maximum privacy. Not even your shadow can be seen through them when drawn.
- Block sound. When resting at an RV park, you’re often surrounded by fellow campers. People’s voices can carry, and the sounds of the nearby road are often loud and unpleasant. But, with blackout curtains, you can reduce external noises to better enjoy your RV in peace.
- Great designs. Blackout curtains come in a variety of patterns and styles. In addition to providing you with plenty of functional benefits, they’ll also add the design of your RV!
Select Your Rod
It’s important that you select the correct rod for your RV curtains. We do not recommend using a tension rod. Since tension rods don’t require any drilling, they are at a much higher risk of falling. If you hit a bump in the road or are traveling on rough terrain, they likely won’t withstand the harsh movement. Instead, opt for a straight rod. Drilling straight rods over your RV windows will offer significantly more strength and durability, even when the roads are rocky.
For your small RV windows, designing blackout curtains that match the size of the pane is a great decision. In confined areas, floor-length curtains often overcrowd the space. However, shortened curtains will keep your RV looking crisp and neat. If you’d like, you can use a single blackout panel to cover the pane. Or, for more light control, hang double panels that rest on each side of the window when open.
Curtain Tie Backs
For taller and larger RV windows, floor-length blackout curtains may be more suitable. However, you still want to ensure that they don’t get in your way and take up too much space when they’re not in use. That’s why you should consider using curtain tie backs. Tie backs stylishly sweep your curtains back from the window and keep them tucked away. At Spiffy Spools, we offer three styles of curtain tie backs that you can choose from with your custom curtain purchase. You can even design them in the same fabric/pattern as your drapery!
