Improved Insulation

Although you may have chosen them to block light and sound, these extra thick curtains will also act as an insulating barrier keeping extreme cold and heat from entering through bare window glass.

FAQs about Theatre Room Curtains

Expand all
Will having thick heavy curtains make the room too hot and stuffy in the summer?

It is a common misconception that the thickness of your movie room curtains will make the space feel hot and stuffy during the height of summer. In truth, because of their excellent insulating properties, theatre curtains can help you create a dark, cool room into which to escape the summer heat or stay warm and cosy during winter’s chill.

How can I block sunlight completely?

For an authentic cinema experience, your home theatre should be as dark as possible. First, to achieve full blackout, have your theatre curtains extra-wide and extra-long; they need to extend past the window to touch the walls on either side and make ample contact with the floor. Secondly, install a pelmet across the top of the curtain. These two modifications together will stop any light from breaking through and prevent haloing.

Can theatre curtains be motorised or automated?

Yes, we offer motorised theatre curtain solutions so you won’t need to get up from the couch to draw the drapes on your next midday movie.

Are made to measure theatre curtains expensive to buy?

Custom-made theatre curtains will vary in cost based on the type of drapery fabric, linings, lengths and widths. Naturally, the more fabric and specialised manufacturing required will determine the price of a custom media room curtain. Whether looking for cheap theatre curtains in simple, plain designs right through to feature soft furnishings in luxurious high-end designer textiles, Amaru will work with your budget to create a perfect solution for your home theatre.
