Are you a light sleeper? Here’s how to choose the right bedroom curtains and shades for a restful sleep

Light sleepers can relate when we say there are some who cannot slumber in peace when there is even the slightest light distractions. Thankfully, you can enjoy uninterrupted sleep with suitable window coverings! Here are 3 options of window treatments that will engulf your room in complete darkness to guarantee a peaceful rest.

  1. Blackout curtains



As the name suggests, blackout curtains, otherwise known as night curtains, help keep out up to 100% of light, be it moonlight, street lights or even the garish afternoon sunlight for those who like sleeping in late.

If you don’t fancy living in darkness all the time, you can either choose blackout curtains with more light penetration or layer your blackout curtains with a layer of translucent day curtains.

What’s more, heavy or two layers of curtains can also help to reduce noise for a restful sleep.

  1. Blackout Shades



Similarly to curtains, blackout shades are opaque and provide thorough coverage for a restful sleep. Some options include roller blinds and roman blinds. Opt for an outside window mount to keep out light that may seep through the edges of the blinds.

If you like light in your room during daytime, double up your blackout shades with day curtains. Alternatively, go for combi blinds which lets you adjust the amount of light that seeps through.

  1. Motorized Curtains & Blinds


Keeping curtains and blinds closed restricts air flow and can make the room feel stale and stuffy. With a motorized system, you can set your motorized curtains or motorized blinds to close automatically at daylight or during any time of your choosing. The Curtain Boutique, leading Singapore curtains and blinds supplier, uses Somfy motors for our motorised curtains/blinds. Somfy is the premium Blinds and Curtains motor system from France that moves smoothly and silently and will not intrude on your sleep.
