How to dress your bedroom windows for a good night’s sleep

05/01/2021

Sleep is vital to our mental and physical health. Here are our tips for choosing the right blinds or curtains to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Consider the light

There are many important things to consider when choosing accessories for your bedroom. As well as having the perfect mattress, correct thickness of duvet (you can vary this depending on the time of year) and right number of pillows, you’ll want to make sure your windows are dressed in a way that offers you maximum comfort too.

Consider how much light comes into your bedroom at night. If you have a streetlight outside your house, or you’re simply someone who sleeps better in total darkness, it could be worth looking into blackout blinds. As well as traditional blackout roller blinds, Broadview also offer Rollerbox Blackout Blinds. These use a unique cassette and rail system that fits the window frame to ensure varying levels of blackout up to almost 100%. This style of blind also cuts out draughts, to help keep you toasty warm while you sleep. We offer a wide range of different styles of blinds, so you'll be sure to find the right one to suit both the style of your bedroom and your needs in terms of shading.

If you’d like to have total flexibility with the amount of light you let in, stylish wooden shutters could be a great option. These not only look fantastic but offer you complete control over light and privacy.  

Stay warm

They say that keeping your bedroom cool promotes better sleep, but in the winter months you'll also want to make sure you don’t get too cold. You could consider choosing thermally insulated fabric for your blinds, or even double up with curtains as well. The benefit of curtains is they make a room feel cosy and can also be made with thermally insulated fabric to help stop heat from escaping.

Curtains make a practical yet luxurious option for any bedroom. We offer a wide range of fabrics and styles to suit all tastes, whether you’re looking for something contemporary or more traditional. For maximum impact, we also offer a range of cushions, throws and headboards designed to complement your curtains. 

For the ultimate in luxury and convenience, we offer motorised and automated blinds and curtains. Find out more here.
