Can Window Treatments Help You Get a Better Night’s Sleep?

Did you know that nearly 30% of adults suffer from chronic insomnia? While there are lots of factors that help produce a better night’s sleep, one of them is the amount of light coming into your bedroom as you snooze. Artificial light, like that coming from streetlights, neighbors’ houses, or nearby businesses, can actually interfere with your sleep. Your body, even when you’re asleep, is able to register the light and trigger your body that it’s time to wake up. Light interference when you’re sleeping not only means you may not sleep as well, but it could also have some pretty serious health consequences. It’s what makes selecting the right bedroom window treatments so important? But what works best and how will you make sense of what might be right for your body? This quick guide can help. 

Options for the Best Window Treatments for Bedrooms

You want your bedroom to look beautiful, and the good news is that even if you choose blackout curtains to make sure you’ll get the least possible amount of light, it will still look amazing. Here are a few options to consider for your space. 

  • Roman Shades: Offering an elegance many other window treatments simply can’t match, these never go out of style. They’re available in a number of different patterns and colors, so no matter what your bedroom décor looks like, they’re certain to match. With a thicker fabric, you’ll find an excellent level of darkness as you sleep, but even if you want to go with a lighter choice, you can always add a blackout liner to the equation. 
  • Roller Shades: You may think these antiques are relegated to your grandmother’s house, but the simple reality is that roller shades remain a classic for a good reason. Today’s roller shades come in a number of different patterns and styles, and you can get options that completely block the light so you can sleep well. 
  • Vertical Blinds: These probably aren’t your first option when you’re looking for light blocking power, but if you have lots of window space to cover, they may be your best option. They’re ideal for wide windows or that door that you have in your bedroom that opens onto the patio. They’re easy to clean, and they come in a number of different styles. Wider slats mean less light coming into your bedroom too!
