Blackout Drapes – Keep Unwanted Light Out Of Your Sleeping Area
With evolving lifestyles and late-night shifts, contemporary blackout drapes (aka curtains) require a heavy duty construction unlike your grandmother’s chintz and lace, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise quality and design.
What makes blackout curtains and shades different from other drapes?
Blackout curtains’ primary function is to block out light. They are made from dense and tightly-woven materials but are not necessarily heavy. Tomorrow Sleep’s blackout curtains block 90% of all light while working to insulate your home against noise pollution and temperature fluctuations.
Benefit #5 – Melatonin Production
Sleep gives our bodies a chance to repair physically and consolidate information.
Quality blackout curtains block everything from street lights to sunlight allowing the pineal gland to optimally produce melatonin . This is important since melatonin secretion influences and regulates our sleep cycle.
This is increasingly important for those who work irregular shifts or have irregular sleeping schedules. Blackout curtains can help ease your transition from day to night and improve your overall sleep quality.
Benefit #4 – Sound of Silence
Blackout curtains can help reduce noise  pollution. This is especially important in urban areas or neighborhoods with a high population density. Insulating curtains or shades can lead to a quiet comfortable sleep.
Benefit #3 – Serene Environment
If you’re an insomniac or simply have trouble sleeping, a completely darkened room can help optimize your dream environment for a more restful sleep. How many times have you been distracted by the flickering headlights or ambient light from outside your window? Blackout drapes lessen these distractions, help you go to sleep earlier and improve your quality of sleep so you can rest easy.
Benefit #2 – Temperature Control
Tomorrow Sleep’s blackout drapes are constructed with a unique material that helps control climate. These drapes retain heat during colder days keeping you cozy and comfortable and repel heat on warmer days to help keep the room cool, fresh and comfy.
With a reduced energy bill and a smaller carbon footprint, you will sleep better, and the earth will breathe a bit easier, too.
Benefit #1 – Ambiance
We are all creatures of habit. Playing and working during the day and sleeping at night has been drilled into our consciousnesses since birth.
Blackout curtains give you more control over your sleeping environment.
If you have to work at night and sleep during the day, blackout drapes will ease your mind and body into sleep mode. They help deliver the peaceful darkness and quiet you need for a more comfortable sleep.
From childhood to adulthood, we need all need sleep to make our days better. Integrating blackout drapes into your nightly routine will help you sleep deeper, longer. So brush those teeth, close those curtains and sleep tight.
