Advantages of blackout blinds for bedrooms

Blackout blinds can be a great option for any bedroom, bringing a number of advantages and benefits to the space. But what are these benefits? And why should you consider blackout blinds for your bedroom?

What are blackout blinds?

Blackout blinds are specific types of blind designed to block out much of the light from outside the window. There are different types of blind that can be used for this purpose, including roller blinds, vertical blinds and Roman blinds. Venetians tend to allow light into the room by the cord seams, but some are designed to minimise this as much as possible.

What are the advantages of blackout blinds for bedrooms?

Using blackout blinds in the bedroom in particular can bring a number of benefits and advantages. These include:

  • Improving sleep quality 
  • Improving thermal efficiency 
  • Range of design options

Black out blinds can improve sleep quality

By installing black out blinds in the bedroom you can keep light levels to a minimum. In the summer months this can help you sleep longer in the morning by blocking out that early morning sun and maintaining a dark, cool space. Even for day time naps, blackout blinds can help you fall asleep quicker, and stay asleep longer, by dramatically reducing the light within the room. Not only is this great for adults, but it also means that blackout blinds can be very beneficial for nurseries and children’s bedrooms too.

Blackout blinds can improve thermal efficiency

Because black out blinds block out the natural light, they also offer a high level of thermal efficiency. By keeping the sun out of your bedroom for extended periods of time, the room will not be heated by the natural greenhouse effect of the sun through the glass, helping to keep your room cool and tranquil. In the winter, blackout blinds can have the opposite effect, helping to instead keep your room warm and cosy. This is because the blinds are usually made from a heavier material which provides additional insulation at your windows, keeping the heat inside the room, and preventing heat loss.

Blackout blinds are available in a range of design options

When you think of blackout blinds you just think of dark coloured roller blinds, without much style or design. But this is no longer the case. In fact, blackout blinds are available in a number of different blind styles, including roller blinds and vertical blinds, as well as in a range of colours, patterns and designs. This means that for your bedroom you can choose blackout blind that fit with your chosen design aesthetic, or you can even choose blackout blinds to make a visual impact, with a strong colour or pattern.
