Blackout blinds the must have item this Summer

Just because summer brings long days and sunny evenings doesn’t mean that you or the children can’t get a good night’s sleep. If you or anyone in your family find it difficult to sleep on long summer nights, then blackout blinds could be the answer. We supply blackout blinds in West Lothian here at Knight Shades, so they could be a simple solution to long sleepless nights.

Curtains won’t cut it when you need to cut out light

If you’ve relied on curtains in the past you’ll have soon realised how little help they are in terms of cancelling out light, no matter how heavy the fabric or how dark in colour, there’s always a chink of light that filters through. Blinds offer full coverage for your windows, but even that isn’t always enough. That’s where blackout fabric, specially made to cut out light and UV rays can dramatically help.

How does blackout fabric work?

Basically, the lining and blind fabric are fused together so they look the same as normal blinds, but in fact provide complete darkness. They’re made in such a way that no light can filter through. Taping is applied all round where the stitching is so it doesn’t allow light in accidentally.

We don’t realise how important a good night’s sleep is, and there are so many people in the UK alone suffering with insomnia, and long summer nights certainly don’t help. Making sure you have a cool dark room to sleep in at night is an important step in that journey towards getting a decent night’s rest.

It’s important to get the right amount of sleep

We don’t need to tell you of the importance of children getting enough sleep, if you have any of your own you’ll know what they’re like when they haven’t had enough. They need over 10 hours each and every night, so making sure they have the minimum amount is crucial.

Great for bedrooms and so much more

Blackout blinds offer a simple solution to the seasonal long days that summer bring. They’re great for the bedrooms, but they are just as useful for family rooms where you enjoy watching movies together, or play computer games. They’re also good for rooms where you have valuable paintings and you don’t want them to fall foul of UV rays and fade. They can also keep the room cool by acting as thermal insulators, and they also absorb sound so you also have quieter more peaceful rooms.
