Sleep well with blackout shades

Sometimes a good night's rest is hard to come by. Especially when it's the weekend and the only thing you want to do is sleep in, but the sun comes up, and soon enough your room is lit up, and you're wide awake. Thankfully there are always advancements in home comfort that can help with little problems like that — introducing the blackout shade! Now sure most of us have known people who have them or even had one/some at one point; but do you know all the uses and benefits to having a blackout shade installed in rooms throughout your home?

Blackout shades provide maximum darkness in a room; they don't let any natural light escape into the room they're installed in. Along with light, the shades also block out any unwanted noise (think loud chirping birds in the morning or construction nearby). This can be ideal for bedrooms and nurseries in the home. Perfect for a sleeping infant or someone who works the night shift, blackout shades will trick the mind into thinking it's night and makes it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep. 

These shades can also cut cost on your energy bills! The power of blackout shades go beyond keeping light and noise out, but it can retain heat in during the winter. The shades block the thermal energy from escaping through the windows, which holds the inside at a comfortable and cozy temperature. They also keep the heat out during the summer, so you don't need to keep your a/c continually running while you're  tossing money out the window. 

Blackout shades don't need to be installed just in rooms where people sleep; it works great for living rooms and additional media rooms. Maybe you want to enjoy a movie with the family out on the couch on a lazy Sunday afternoon,  pull down those shades and have yourown private theater! No matter what you choose to use blackout shades for, the benefits are clear. No light, less noise, and lower energy bills await you! Contact us today to get yours!
