The Different Lining Types for Blinds & Curtains


When it comes to dressing up your windows, choosing the right type of lining for your Blinds or Curtains can make all the difference in the functionality and aesthetics of your space. From filtering light to insulating against heat and cold, there are a few different types of linings available that serve various purposes. Whether you’re looking to create a cosy, dark bedroom or a bright, airy living room, understanding the differences between these linings can help you achieve the perfect look and feel for your home.

Light Filtering Lining

Perfect if you’re looking to flood your space with natural light while maintaining some privacy. Made of a lightweight, semi-transparent fabric that allows sunlight to filter through while reducing glare and blocking harmful UV rays. The thickness of the lining ensures that your home stays shaded and your blind feels soft and light. Whether you want to create a cosy atmosphere in your bedroom or a warm, inviting ambience in your living room, our Light Filtering Lining can help you achieve the perfect look and feel for your home. 

Thermal Interlining

Thermal interlining is an extra layer of fabric added to our Curtains and Roman Blinds, which you can select while choosing your window covering. Three layers of thermal textile are piled together and sawn between the front and the back, adding volume and depth to the blind or curtain. Thermal interlining helps insulate your room and keep your space extra cosy in winter and cool in summer. It also lets a gentle amount of light through. If you’re looking for complete shading, choose the blackout lining instead. 

Blackout Lining 

The blackout lining is the perfect solution for those seeking privacy and shading. It provides incredible protection against the sun, with added thermal efficiency, helping to insulate your space and block out the heat of summer and the cold of winter for year-round cosiness. And its extra thickness and depth help create a warm and cosy space free from intrusive sunlight.
