Nothing beats a good night’s sleep, but we know how difficult it can be to get your 8 hours in with street lights, busy roads and bright summer mornings. All these factors and more can impact our sleeping patterns. If you’ve tried all the different tricks; sleep masks, earplugs and whale sounds – but they haven’t worked, we’ve got the solution that can change your world.
Blackout blinds are specially designed to block light from entering your home, creating complete darkness when you need it most. Plus, the blinds can reduce noise pollution, increase privacy and even help insulate your home. In a simple list below, we’ve shared the main benefits of having blackout blinds and some surprising ones too.
Light sleepers, young children and migraine sufferers are a few types of people who would benefit from blackout blinds. Another is shift workers; we know exactly how difficult it is to sleep at unnatural times of day with daylight streaming in. Our blackout blinds can fix that, no matter the time of day. For those living in densely populated urban areas, close to a main road, or even below a flight path, the shading material provides a much-needed barrier so you can easily rest when it matters most. Blackouts also help to maintain normal sleep throughout the year, regardless of seasonal changes. Very effective in children’s bedrooms, the blackout material creates darkness, relieving stress before sleep.
Blackout blinds have the added benefit of being quiet and ideal for those living in urban areas or near busy roads, creating a relaxed living environment regardless of the time of day. The extra noise barrier can help ensure uninterrupted sleep, especially for light sleepers and children.
If you’re lucky enough to have your very own cinema room, or just a giant TV, installing blinds that reduce light within your living space can improve the viewing and sound quality of your watching experience. With the holiday season here, there will be plenty of movie nights at home. All you need to add is the popcorn.
Blockout blinds are great for all seasons. They can provide better insulation for the home, which means less energy consumption and more money saved on home bills. This is because the darkening material is better at blocking heat, or retaining heat in summer.
Designed specifically with bathrooms and bedrooms in mind, blackout materials can provide better privacy in the home, a vital step in creating a safe and comfortable living space in which to relax. Working from home has become more common in recent years, and having a private office can help create a distraction-free space with a variety of lighting control options depending on your preferred working environment.
These 5 benefits are just the beginning as the world seems to be getting brighter and louder each year with homes built closer together, an ever-increasing population and more cars on the roads. Ask your blackout blind specialists for their advice today and upgrade your home.
