We love when the sun comes out! It’s the only excuse we need to set the barbeque up, whip the paddling pool out and relax in the Summer sun with friends, absorbing the sun with an ice-cold drink in hand. The only downfall? The bright Summer nights make sleeping a little tricky!
A simple solution to this problem is the addition of block-out blinds to your windows! With 174 block-out fabrics The Fabric Box not only helps to get the kids to bed at their usual hour, our block-out range is also useful to you if you work night shifts and sleep during the day, want to retain your Winter sleeping pattern or simply just want to have an afternoon Summer siesta.
Sleep time is the most important time of the day. The night time hours are where the mind relaxes and our bodies rejuvenate, keeping us energised and content. Maximising a great night’s sleep is the effects of a dark environment as it sends signals to the body that it is time to rest. Without it, this can interfere with both the quantity and quality of sleep.
Not only providing a dark environment, block-out blinds block the Sun’s rays from causing a room to overheat. This helps to maintain a comfortable room temperature and in the warmer Summer month’s preventing the home from getting too warm benefits our bodies as well as our electricity bills!
A rested mind is a must for everyone and as such block-out blinds are beneficial to all, but where they come in extra beneficial is for parents with babies and young children; requiring more hours of sleep than adults, babies need extra time to dream during the day to ensure they grow and develop healthy and happy. Block-out blinds allow babies to receive a more peaceful and happy sleep in complete darkness, during the day.
