Believe it or not, there are a number of reasons why blackout roller blinds could be the perfect solution for your home. Whether you’re looking for increased privacy or you need to sleep during the day, these blinds are able to solve a variety of problems whilst looking fantastic. In the list below, we have outlined just some of the reasons you might be interested in a blackout option:
You have young children
Anyone with young children will be well aware of the fact that they often need to sleep during the day or go to bed when it’s still light outside (particularly during daylight savings). The great thing about blackout blinds is that they can bathe their bedroom in complete darkness, helping them to go to sleep (and remain asleep longer).
You work night shift
There are actually a variety of professions that require you to work at night and sleep during the day. Ensuring that you get plenty of sleep is important, but it can be made problematic by sunlight seeping through the cracks or just passing through the fabric. Blackout blinds will ensure that your bedroom is dark enough to get 8 hours.
You live on a busy street
The problem with living on a busy street is that streetlights and car headlights can prove to be a disturbance. Whether you’re trying to enjoy a television show in your lounge room or trying to sleep in your bedroom, having lights beam across the wall is annoying. These roller blinds will ensure that you aren’t disturbed of an evening.
You have close neighbours
Unfortunately, some homes are built close to the boundary line. This results in neighbours that are sometimes a little too close for comfort. If you want to prevent your neighbours from keeping tabs on you and ensure your privacy, blackout blinds are the ideal solution. They block light and silhouettes from passing out as well as in.
It helps insulate your home
The thickness of the fabric used for these blinds means that they can create a barrier between your home and the outside world. During the winter, they can help to prevent heat from passing out of the glass and, during the summer, they can help to prevent heat from passing into the glass (providing they’re kept closed).
If you fit into any of the above categories, blackout roller blinds are definitely something you should consider for your home. Whether you choose to install them in every room or just those that are most affected by a privacy or light problem, these blinds will tie the décor of the whole space together.
