If you are someone who struggles to fall asleep at night because of external light sources or who wakes up early in the summer due to the early sunrise then you should consider investing in some good blackout blinds.

Blackout blinds are made from thick dense material which is coated in a blackout backing which makes the fabric impermeable to light.  This opacity darkens your room allowing you to get the sleep your body needs.

There are many types of blackout blinds on the market ranging from the standard blackout blinds right through to 100% blackout cassette blinds with side channels.

Blackout blinds- block out the light

and bring on the ZZZ’s


Improve your home life in a simple step by installing blackout blinds.  Blackout blinds have many benefits including improved sleep quality, reduced stress levels and protection from harmful UV rays to name but a few benefits.

If you're looking for a simple yet effective way to improve your health and well-being, you might want to consider investing in blackout blinds. These window coverings are specifically designed to block out all light, making them an ideal choice for people who struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep at night.

But blackout blinds aren't just good for sleep - they offer a range of health benefits that can help you and your family feel better both physically and mentally. Here are just a few of the top health benefits of using blackout blinds in your home:

Improved Sleep Quality: One of the main reasons people use blackout blinds is to improve their sleep quality. By blocking out all light, these blinds can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer, leading to more restful and rejuvenating sleep.

Reduced Stress Levels: Another benefit of better sleep is reduced stress levels. When you're well-rested, you're less likely to feel stressed, anxious, or irritable during the day. Plus, the darkness provided by blackout blinds can create a calming atmosphere that promotes relaxation and stress relief.

Protection from Harmful UV Rays: Blackout blinds don't just block out visible light - they can also help protect you from harmful UV rays. Exposure to UV radiation can increase your risk of skin cancer and other health problems, so it's important to take steps to reduce your exposure wherever possible.

Improved Energy Efficiency: Because blackout blinds block out so much light, they can also help improve the energy efficiency of your home. By reducing the amount of heat that enters or escapes through your windows, these blinds can help lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

Enhanced Privacy: Blackout blinds offer enhanced privacy which can help you feel more comfortable and secure in your home. Whether you live in a busy city or a quiet suburb, having the ability to completely block out prying eyes can give you peace of mind and help you relax.




The sleep experts!

Blackout Blinds for Babies: A helpful tool for parents!

Babies need a lot of sleep - as much as 16-18 hours a day in their first few months of life. However, getting them to sleep when they're supposed to can be a challenge, especially during the summer months when daylight hours are longer and more disruptive to their sleep schedules.

During the spring and summer it can be difficult to keep your baby's sleep schedule on track. However, blackout blinds can help by keeping the room dark and conducive to sleep, no matter what time of day it is. This can help your baby adjust to the changing daylight hours more easily and maintain a consistent sleep schedule.

Blackout blinds create a dark and comfortable sleeping environment that is perfect for shift workers what ever time of day it is.
