People in the modern world tend to be more frequently afflicted with sleep trouble. This can happen for a number of reason. The important thing to know is that, while there are a lot of causes, the kind of blinds you have can make a big impact. Lets take a look at how proper blinds can improve your sleep quality!
Block Out City Lights
One thing that’s undoubtedly made sleep harder for many is the imposing lights of the surrounding city. It doesn’t matter if you grew up in the city or you just moved there from the country. Our bodies are made to sleep in darkness. Even if you’ve grown used to the lights coming in through your window, you’ll sleep better with a dark room. It may take some getting used to, but it will pay off.
Blackout shades or other very efficient, light-blocking blinds, like Magic Lite, will keep the city lights at bay. Sleep well without street lights and neon signs brightening up your room.
Better Sleep Quality on Night Shift
If you work night shift, you may have a hard time getting really restful sleep. Trying to sleep when the sun is up can drastically lower the quality of your rest. Not only that, it can be hard getting to sleep in the first place.
Blocking out daylight completely, however, is difficult. Regular blinds just aren’t up for the job. This amount of light needs something made specifically for it. Replacing your bedroom blinds with blackout shades instead, or Magic Lite, may just do the trick. Blackout shades are the best option, really. If you pair these incredibly efficient shades with side channels, no light will make it in.
Implement Side Channels
Side channels are little tracks for your window shade. They’re attached to the sides of your window frame and the window shade will remain seated in the channels. This ensures no light comes in around the sides of your shades.
Side channels were created specifically for working environments where there are a lot of computers. They’re also used in presentation rooms where projectors need complete darkness. Using these in the home will keep your room dark and easy to sleep in, even during midday.
Darken the Nursery
While some babies sleep okay with sunlight drifting in, some don’t. Just like adults, every baby is different. Some sleep better when it’s dark. Even for those who can sleep during the daytime, putting them down for a nap in the dark is a great way to condition them to associate darkness with sleep. This will make it easier for them, as they grow older, to handle a dark room and fall asleep when laid down in one.
