The Importance of Sleep: Why Blackout Blinds Are a Great Investment

There’s no doubt that light mornings make it easier for you to get up – especially when you’re up early for work during the week. But when sunlight starts filtering into your bedroom earlier, it has an affect on your natural sleep pattern.

According to the Centre of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), lighter mornings naturally shift your body clock so you feel like going to bed earlier. But with most of us keeping the same bedtime throughout the year, people generally operate on less sleep during the summer months.

Lack of sleep can lead to sluggishness, ‘brain fog’, a shortness of temper, and puts you at greater risk of accident and injury.

To avoid the above, experts recommend that you should get between seven and nine hours sleep a night. In fact, the NHS states that having the recommended hours of sleep can help to:

  • Boost immunity
  • Reduces weight gain
  • Boost mental well-being
  • Prevent diabetes
  • Protect against heart disease

Broadview Blackout Blinds – Why Should You Invest?

Further advice from the CDC states that you should try to keep the light as dim as possible until you’re ready to wake up. Blackout blinds from Broadview will keep your room dark, so you still benefit from the recommended number of hours of sleep.

Broadview offers a number of blackout blind solutions, including traditional blackout blinds, and Rollerbox blackout blinds that use a rail system to fit precisely to your window frame. All of our blinds are made to measure, and are available in a range of finishes to suit your interior design style.

If blinds aren’t your thing, Broadview also offers blackout lining for curtains. And if you’re thinking of swapping curtains for blinds but you’re worried about sacrificing insulative properties, we offer blinds made from thermal material – meaning you don’t need to sacrifice energy efficiency!
