Some people have trouble sleeping if there is any light coming into their rooms, including the lights from street lamps. Others many want to block the light during the day to help their children nap or because they work at night and need to sleep during the day. By installing the correct type of blinds on bedroom windows, you can rest better by blocking out light.
Since roller blinds are made with fabric instead of uPVC or metal slats, they are better at blocking out light. While darker colours can be used to help block out light, roller blinds are available in blackout fabrics. The fabrics are available in a variety of colours and designs so you don’t have to stick with black, navy blue, or other dark colours in the bedroom.
Roman blinds are also available in blackout fabrics to block out daylight or the lights from street lamps or passing cars. If you’re a light sleeper, you won’t be awakened every time a vehicle passes your home at night. Blackout blinds are also good for installing in children’s rooms so that they can nap undisturbed by the sun’s rays beaming into their windows.
If you’d rather not drill holes in the window frames of uPVC windows, then Inuit blinds are a great option to hang on windows. They fit inside the frame of the window so there are no gaps through which light can get into the room. Most West Midlands blinds dealers will have Inuit blinds so they are not difficult to find.
Installing blinds on the outside of the window frame will also help keep light out of the bedroom. There can be gaps if blinds are installed inside window frames so installing them on the outside helps keep light out.
