Sleep is a dominant part of life; the average person spends around one-third of their life sleeping! It provides us with the energy and rest we need in order to stay healthy and complete our tasks for the day. However, getting a good night’s rest is difficult if your room is not dark enough and the consequences leave you feeling exhausted.
A solution? Having quality blinds installed will help keep the sun out, while also providing your room with privacy. With so many different styles to choose from, these are our top Hunter Douglas picks to keep your bedroom lightless.
Not only are Duette honeycomb shades extremely energy efficient, but they are also one of the best shades to keep a room dark. Duette shades have the option to get the LightLock feature: a U-shaped channel that is installed on the sides of the window frame. This helps eliminate the light gaps that would typically show. The inside of the channel is black, allowing it to absorb any light that may get through. Lightlock is perfect for the bedroom as it completely darkens the room for a blackout effect.
On their own, Silhouette shades are a beautiful choice for the bedroom. This horizontal shade has inner vanes that are connected with sheer fabrics. When tilted open, you can let soft light in and view through the sheers. Tilted closed, the vanes help dim the light and provide privacy. With the Duolite feature, a blackout liner is added to the back of the blind. This liner works sequentially with the main Silhouette shade, as it can only operate once the Silhouette is fully lowered and in the open position. This extra liner darkens your room more effectively than the vanes, helping your room stay dark at night.
Worried about light seeping through your blind’s side gaps? Pair your blinds with some drapery! Not only would an opaque fabric help block those side gaps, adding drapes would be a great way to dress up any room and make it look fantastic. With tons of customization options, custom-made drapes are a great way to personalize your windows and home.
