blackout blinds: the ultimate solution for a perfect night's sleep

home   ›   blog   ›   blackout blinds: the ultimate solution for a perfect night's sleep

We all know that getting a healthy amount of sleep every night is crucial to being happy, healthy and productive in our daily lives. But, sometimes, knowing this isn't enough - you have to actually be able to sleep safely and soundly, and that's not always easy. If you're having trouble creating a good sleeping environment in your New Zealand home, you may want to consider installing a lovely set of blackout blinds in your bedroom. 

Can a simple set of blinds really make a difference? In this blog, we will cover the many benefits of blackout roller blinds and how they can help you sleep better, and live happier, every single day. 

what are blackout roller blinds

Blackout roller blinds are specialised blinds that are created to block out light completely. Many other types of blinds will still let in some level of light to improve your home or office's ambience, like sunscreen or light-filtering blinds, but blackout blinds will shut it out entirely. 

This makes them ideal for total control over your room's light. Even if it's sunny out, you can still enjoy the dark. 

how blackout roller blinds help you get more sleep

Creating a safe, quiet environment is key to getting enough sleep every night. Who can sleep when their room is bright and there are all types of noises going on outside their windows? Tossing and turning all night because you're distracted and frustrated won't do you any good, and lack of sleep can negatively affect your health. 

Adults should get 7-9 hours of sleep every night, and children can need much more than that, depending on their age. If you do have children, consider using the information in this article to your advantage to create a nicer environment with blackout blinds in their rooms as well. 

One of the best tips you'll get if you want to improve your chances of a good night's rest is to create a dark, quiet and safe environment.

How can blinds do this? Blackout roller blinds can help you by:

Blocking Out Light. The main benefit you'll get from blackout roller blinds is that you'll block out light when you need it. You won't have to cover your face with your blanket or uncomfortably look for a position where the light isn't bothering you; you'll be able to happily drift off into sleep in soothing darkness. 

This perk is especially useful if you're taking a nap during the day, but it's also useful at night. The light from the moon or streetlights can be shut out easily with your new blinds. 

Additionally, when you wake up, you won't be faced with bright sunlight in your eyes. 

Eliminate Visual Distractions. It's not very easy to get to sleep if things are going on outside of your window. If you keep seeing movement, you could have trouble sleeping. Blackout blinds allow you to put all of those things out of your mind so you can focus on yourself. 

So once you know that nothing outside pertains to you, you can shut your blinds and sleep.

Offer Some Sound Control. Sturdy blinds can offer you some sound control. With the muffled noises and the ability to block out visual distractions, you'll have an easier time filtering these things out of your mind. 

This benefit is especially useful to those living in New Zealand's urban areas. People living in cities often have to deal with the sounds of the city and traffic all day and all night, and these sounds can be frustrating. Blackout blinds will help you ignore those while you try to rest. 

Give You Total Privacy. It's not easy to sleep (or do anything productive) when you feel like someone outside is watching you. Luckily, with solid blackout roller blinds, you can eliminate any chances of anyone looking at you from the outside. 

Blackout roller blinds block out light, but they also block out potential prying eyes, and you can sleep knowing you're safe and in the wonderful privacy of your own home. 

Creating A Safe, Pleasant Environment. All these benefits combined mean that you'll be making a nice, safe environment where you can feel relaxed. It's hard to sleep when you're stressed, and it's hard to let go of worries when you're in an uncomfortable setting.
