FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Curtain dim-out fabrics are textiles that reduce the amount of light passing through them without completely blocking it. They are ideal for spaces that require a certain level of privacy or light control, such as bedrooms, conference rooms, or cinemas. Direct Fabrics offers a range of curtain dim-out fabrics in various colors and patterns, suitable for different types of interiors and applications.

No, Direct Fabrics' curtain dim-out fabrics are not blackout. While they reduce the amount of light passing through them, they still allow some light to filter in. If you require a complete blackout effect, we recommend using our range of blackout curtains, which are specially designed to block out all light.

When choosing a curtain dim-out fabric, consider factors such as the level of light control you require, the color and pattern of the fabric, and its composition and durability. At Direct Fabrics, we provide expert advice and guidance on selecting the most suitable curtain dim-out fabric for your project, taking into account your aesthetic, functional, and budget requirements. We also offer free samples and a bespoke curtain making service to ensure a perfect fit and finish.
