    Do blackout curtains reduce noise?

    Does anyone have them? Are they helpful in this case?

    No, if you have a problem with outdoors noise in your house than it's better to get soundproofing curtains, they're really helpful in this case The blackout ones are the best in case of light blocking, they're good both for streetlights and sunlight. Because of that they're often used for children rooms, especially for very small babies.
    These curtains are also energy-efficient https://sleepmentor.net/best-blackout-curtains/ . They're thick in case of material and because of that they can reduce some sounds (but again not so good in general as the soundproofing ones), and keep warm in winter, also cold air in summer which is really nice for your energy bills. They can be helpful in protection of your furniture/home decor from fading because of blocking the sunlight too.

    Thanks. I'll buy the soundproofing ones in this case because noise is our main problem.

    Hey! Instead of curtains, you can try some films, they are worth to avoid sunlight and noiseless too.
