Sleep is an essential part of one’s health as it allows the body to rest and recharge. However, varying factors can disturb your sleep and prevent you from getting that much-needed rest. That’s why it’s important to create a sleeping environment where you feel comfortable.
Light, temperature and noise are three factors that can affect the quality of your sleep. And one or two of these can be addressed by choosing the right window treatment for your bedroom.
In this article, Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix, a trusted provider of window replacement services, lists three window treatments that will get you better sleep.
Adding a drapery to your entire window will block the light completely. This is especially beneficial for light sleepers who need the darkest room possible. You can add a sheer or translucent curtain that you can use during the day. This will bring a soft natural light into the room during daytime. Then, at night, you can easily close the heavy drapes to prevent external light from seeping into your room.
Drapes are quite versatile and decorative too. Whether you have a casement window or a double-hung window, they can surely add a nice touch.
Cellular shades feature a honeycomb pattern on the sides, and they are known for effectively keeping off light. They can add a crisp and modern look to your bedroom as well.
Roller shades are a popular choice because they’re simple and economical. You can also pair them with drapes or curtains, and they would be barely noticeable.
While window treatments can prove to be effective in controlling the amount of light that enters your room, they may not be as helpful when it comes to reducing external noise and keeping a comfortable temperature inside. For these concerns, you might want to consider energy-efficient and noise-reducing windows.
