What are blackout curtains? This post will tell you all about them and why you NEED them! Do you have a hard time sleeping in unfamiliar environments? Or maybe your partner likes to sleep in complete darkness and you can’t stand the thought of being in a dark room. If so, blackout curtains may be the perfect solution for you! Blackout curtains are designed to block out all light, making any environment completely dark. This is great for people who have trouble sleeping in new places or those who want to create shades or a more intimate setting by eliminating all ambient light.
What Are Blackout Curtains?
Blackout curtains block sunlight and are curtains that help keep all light out of a room. They help you sleep better and they keep the room you are in light-free so you can sleep like a baby. They are also non-toxic and keep not only the light out but the heat of the summer sun too! If you are searching for a way to help you sleep better, then blackout curtains are something you need in your bedroom.
I received some blackout curtains called the Sleepout Curtain and my goodness these work fabulously. My daughter has a very light room with only blinds and they do not keep the light out when she is trying to sleep, just the opposite! She has been complaining for a while about this. We installed the Sleepout Curtains on her window and now, she can sleep in on the weekends with no issues at all. No light comes in and she sleeps like a baby!
The Sleepout Curtain installs in seconds to fit any window. It’s 100% blackout, certified non-toxic, and thermal/sound-insulating. We know sleep is vital for healthy development and Sleepout makes any sleep 10x easier for anyone. It also makes putting little ones to bed while it’s bright out, SO much easier!
What Are Blackout Curtains Good For?
Blackout curtains are not only good for sleeping but also for:
-Reducing noise pollution
-Keeping your house cooler in the summer
-Reduce energy costs (energy efficient and energy savings)
-Great for shift workers (work night shifts)
-great for getting little ones to sleep earlier
Blackout curtains are a great way to improve your sleep quality and create a more comfortable environment in your home for everyone.
How the Sleepout Curtain Works:
*Place suction cups on the window at any width.
*Lock the industrial-grade suction cups in place
*Press the fastener strip to the suction cup
When the blackout drapes are not in use you can easily pack up the curtain and put them back into the little duffle bag they came in. This makes them easily transportable and you can bring them anywhere with you to help ensure you and your kids get a good night’s sleep anywhere!
