First things are looking at how tight of weave it is and if it’s really stated to be blackout. If a curtain says it has 99% blackout then it normally means that the curtains have been put through at least 3 coats of liquefied rubber polymer. This helps not only to close up the gaps so no light comes in but helps reduce sound as there’s less of a chance for it to get in. However watch for reviews that state they saw light coming in as then it probably isn’t coated and you won’t get as much noise reduction as you want. The next things to look for are how thick or heavy the fabric is as the thicker it is the better those soundproof curtains will be. While it maybe obvious avoid anything related to silk in your curtains as these do not block out any sound despite what companies may say. The final thing to do is just test curtains yourself. Not all curtains will block out the noise you think they will so you may need to experiment with a few different set of curtains before you find that perfect set.
With so many working parts or fiddly clips, blinds tend to be less reliable than curtains on a track or a pole. Combining curtains with a good, reliable curtain track or pole can be a more cost effective option; especially as curtain prices have been greatly reduced since the introduction of ready-made and express curtain making services. And if your requirements change, you can simply hang new curtains on your existing track or pole.
Some families used to have two sets of blinds, one for summers and the other for winters. The summer curtains usually consisted of two sets of blinds. Net blinds would be drawn during the day to let the sunlight in, and a heavier set of shades mounted on a separate rail would be used to cover the windows at night.
