Light pollution is a recognised problem in the summer months and is responsible for many people having nights of disturbed sleep. In an effort to combat this, more and more people are starting to opt for blackout blinds in their homes. Here at ETM Window Blinds our made to measure blackout blinds can help shield against the night time light and the summertime sun. Blackout blinds are made from a very thick, opaque material that blocks out natural lighting from infiltrating a room, creating a completely dark surrounding.
Who could benefit from blackout blinds?
Mothers of babies and toddlers who need to put their children down for daytime naps or ensure they get a restful night’s sleep
Those affected by light pollution, such as streetlights or neighbouring houses
Night/shift workers who need to sleep during the day
Light sleepers who are disturbed by early sunrise
What are the main benefits of using blackout blinds?
As well as its blackout abilities, a blackout blind offers many other benefits that make it a fantastic window covering option for any room:
Good levels of insulation: The thick material used for blackout blinds means that they are highly insulating. This will help reduce solar gain in summer so your bedroom will be cool and comfortable and help keep the heat in your home during winter, creating a cosy feel. Not only will this increased control over temperature help you sleep easier, it will also save you money on your energy bills!
Increased privacy: Some lighter blinds are made from sheer or translucent material which, while offering some privacy, will still allow nosy neighbours and prying eyes to gain insight into your home. Blackout blinds, on the other hand, are completely opaque so will ensure that your private life remains just that!
Noise reduction qualities: The thick material of blackout blinds forms an extra layer of soundproofing between your home and the outside world, helping to block out some of the disturbing noises of traffic or neighbours that can keep you awake at night.
