Is It Worth It? Blackout Curtain Lining For Better Sleep

Is It Worth It? Blackout Curtain Lining For Better Sleep

Imagine lying in your warm bed after a long day, closing your eyes ready to fall asleep but you're kept up by the bright, intruding street lights seeping through your curtains. We understand that many of you living in and near the city or by a road don’t have to imagine, so what can you do about it?

Our bedrooms are filled with lights, from lamps to laptops and tv’s to phones. These we can switch off when going to bed but then you have the more intrusive lights such as street lights and early morning sunlight? This is where blackout-lining can help.

So what is blackout lining exactly?

Blackout lining is a tightly woven, unobtrusive fabric that is sewn on to the back of your curtains, blocking the outside light. This makes it perfect for anybody bothered by having a bright room while they're trying to sleep, this includes shift workers or people who love relaxing on those bright, lazy Sunday mornings.

We understand the need for those relaxing lie-ins but it’s hard to do with the sun creeping through your curtains. It’s even worse when you’re a late shift worker taking your mid-day sleep.

With uninterrupted sleep being linked to lower stress levels, black-out lining is definitely something to consider when buying curtains.

You may have come across blackout curtains if you’ve stayed at a hotel. A lot of hotels tend to be placed in densely populated, highly lit areas. Hotels will be used by busy business people or families who’ve just stepped off the plane, ready for a relaxing post flight sleep. It’s important that their customers make the most of their stay, so they’ll use blackout curtains to ensure that your isn't too bright at night and you can get a quality night’s rest.

And the cost?

Although it’s mainly used by hotels, blackout-lining is affordable for many people looking to buy made-to-measure curtains. Paying a little extra to ensure that extra bit of comfort each night is well worth the consideration.
