I need total darkness to sleep. What type of window treatments should I choose?
Getting a good night’s sleep is so crucial to being fully productive during the day. For some people, even a small amount of light can make it very hard to fall asleep and continue snoozing until the alarm goes off. If this is the case for you, then it’s worth investing in window treatments that fully block out light from entering the bedroom. At Athena’s Window Fashions, we’d be happy to come by your home to discuss what types of window fashions would work best for you. During the in-home consultation, we’ll discuss your desires and budget, and then can determine what type of window treatments will provide you the darkness you need for sleep, while also offering a look that aligns with your aesthetic preferences. Here are four popular types of window treatments that can thoroughly darken the room.
Hunter Douglas LightLock System
Hunter Douglas’ LightLock System does a great job of providing total darkness. With LightLock, there are U-shaped side channels with a black, ridged interior surface. With this design, light is trapped and absorbed from all directions.
Roman Shades with Blackout Lining
Roman Shades are enduringly popular for various rooms in the home. They come in a variety of styles, but not all of them do a great job of fully blocking out light. This is where the blackout lining comes into play. By adding the blackout lining, you can select a type of Roman Shades that meets your aesthetic desires, while also giving you the darkness you need for deep sleeping.
Hunter Douglas PowerView Shades
PowerView shades with blackout liners make it easy for you to create an automatic schedule where your blinds close and block out light at your routine bedtime. And because PowerView Shades can be remote controlled, you’ll be able to adjust them without getting out of bed.
Sheer Curtains with Blackout Liners
With sheer curtains that have blackout liners, you can let in ample light during the day, and then switch to total darkness when it’s time for bed. And at Athena’s Window Fashions, we can create custom draperies that give you the look you seek, while also accounting for the amount of light/dark you need.
