Fabric Spotlight: the room darkener custom window curtain

Updated: Jul 28


Are you looking for a solution to reduce outdoor light from interrupting your sleep or reduce the glare in your media room? Custom drapes using the room darkener fabric are the solution to your light management needs.


Blackout and room darkening curtains come in many varieties and qualities. At the drape, we recommend the room darkener fabric. Here is why:


Triple Woven Fabric


The room darkener is a technologically advanced fabric. The fabric consists of three layers that are interwoven. The center layer is woven with black threads which create a layer that keeps out light and provides insulation for the window. While this technology does not provide 100% blackout, it comes very close.



Stylish Fabric


Featuring an understated texture, the room darkener fabric is 100% polyester. The texture is commonly known as a faux linen texture. All 5 colors (stone, tan, denim, spruce green, black) have a combination of light and dark that is inherently woven into the fabric. This unique weave allows the curtain maximum sun blocking ability and ensures that the fabric will not deteriorate over time.
