With the light nights and early morning sunshine coming (we hope!) many people find it more difficult to sleep, especially children, which is why I developed my blackout shutters.
Designed to eliminate more light than a shutter alone or a standard pair of curtains, these are particularly useful if you work shifts and want to sleep during the day, have children who go to bed in the early evening while it’s still light, or like me have a partner who wakes when the sun rises – even if that’s 4.45am! I have these in my own home and have found that it’s easier to sleep in a south facing room. It also helps encourage my children to sleep despite the fact they go to bed early in the evening, as the blackout shutters create the right atmosphere and eliminate more light, making it feel more like bedtime.
Using a shutter means that you can still have the style you want for your room, but the cleverly incorporated blackout option will help to cut out extra light to help you sleep.
These are available to both DIY and fitted customers and have proved to be popular with those who have already tried them.
I have also had several positive comments from existing customers that they have found their blackout shutters also aid insulation in the winter, as the additional layers trap warmth in the room, and help to keep out the sun’s rays in the summer.
