The environment of our bedroom has a major impact on the quality and quantity of our sleep. Here at Colorado Blinds & Design, we know that your bedroom should be the most luxurious personal space in your home — soothing and conducive to relaxation and ultimately, sleep. If you haven’t put much thought into window treatments for your bedroom, now is the time consider updating for the sake of more (and better) Zzzzs!
The designers at Colorado Blinds & Design like to recommend blackout curtains and window treatments to block the sun and street lights to protect your sleep. Light exposure at the wrong times alters the body’s internal “sleep clock”, so as you can imagine, all the exposure we receive to artificial light (think your computer and smartphone screens), has damaging effects on our sleep. We want to make sure your window treatments lend themselves to creating a peaceful and DARK environment.
After a designer discusses with you your bedroom and sleep needs, she will then propose a variety of window treatment options, such as:
Blackout roller shades are an economical way to help prevent the light from disrupting your sleep. They can be minimalistic by design, rolling neatly at the top of your window. These shades give you complete control over your window treatments to let the daylight in while you’re awake and block it out when you’re ready for sleep.
Roman shades are a popular choice for bedrooms because they provide a soft, elegant look and are also available in blackout fabrics.
Cellular shades have great insulating properties. Not only can they block out the light, they can help keep your room cool as well. Cellular shades are available in many different colors and light-filtering options, making it easy to find the right fit for your room.
Combine curtains with shades or blinds
When you use drapery in conjunction with your blinds or shades, you add another layer of coverage, privacy, and light control. Drapery also helps add some dimension and style to ensure your bedroom feels like the comforting oasis you desire it to be.
