With the sun now rising earlier and setting later, you can your normal sleep patter can be altered. Thankfully, you can get a better night’s sleep by choosing room darkening shades to install in your bedroom.
A Darker Room At Night Leads To Better Health
Light is an important part of regulating our sleeping patterns, or circadian rhythm – the rising sun tells us it is time to wake up, and the sun setting lets us know that it is almost time to sleep. If too much light is coming into your bedroom from the outside, say from a street lamp, your ability to get to sleep can be negatively affected.
By getting a good night’s sleep, you will experience a myriad of benefits like:
- Improved memory
- Better mood
- A stronger immune system
A darker room when trying to sleep is important for everyone, especially shift workers and younger children. For shift workers, especially if you work nights or irregular schedules, having the ability to control the amount of light coming into the home will help you get to sleep easier and prevent health issues like insomnia. For young children and babies, managing their exposure to light at night will help them develop a healthy circadian rhythm.
A Variety Of Room Darkening Shades To Choose From
Victor Shade offers a wide variety of room darkening window treatments to choose from. The great thing about room darkening shades is that they can be applied to many different varieties of window treatments, such as roller shades, roman shades, or honeycomb shades. Some options include:
- Silhouette A Duex®
- Vignette Roman Shades®
- Silhouette Duolite®
These styles have a room darkening liner behind the “main” shade so you can control when you want to let light into your home.
However, if you want the best room darkening shades on the market (that happen to look great too!), then you need to see the Duette Architella® honeycomb shade, which incorporates a mylar center as opposed to a secondary liner. They also have tightest fit to the window trim than any other shade, so you don’t have to worry about light seeping around the edges.
Room darkening shades have the added benefit of helping you save on energy bills by controlling the amount of light and heat that comes into the home during the summer and keeping the cold out during the winter.
Whether you are having trouble sleeping or you simply want the ability to regulate sunlight in your bedroom and other areas of your home, you are sure to find a beautiful room darkening shade that fits your style and needs at Victor Shade.
