As the days become longer and warmer, and our calendars get booked up with outdoor activities, it is essential to get a good’s night sleep in order to prepare. The joy of waking up fully rested and stepping away from Winter’s cosy Hygge lifestyle. Although this seasonal sunshine is a treat, the bright mornings can significantly interrupt our sleeping patterns and affect our biological rhythms, which can be a nuisance to light sleepers and children alike.


To eliminate any nightly disturbances, blackout curtains are the perfect solution. They can also give your home an interior refresh with the wide variety of designs and colours available.

The blackout curtain fabric can stop the sunlight or the harsh street light from passing through the windows as they are made from extra tightly woven fabrics. This makes blackout curtains ideal for your bedroom or your child’s bedroom.

They are also useful for a south facing living room, where the sunlight heats up the room to an uncomfortable level as the blackout fabric can keep your room cool from the hot sun. Draw the curtains closer together but leave a gap in the middle to let a good level of light in. Another great benefit of blackout curtains is that they let you control the exact amount of light that comes into a room.

On the other hand, if you would still like a gentle level of sunlight passing through your curtains for a soft and sunny glow, dim out curtains are an ideal choice. When the bright sun shines on the dim-out fabric, the sunlight enhances the appearance of the curtains by illuminating the colours and designs. In addition, if you prefer to wake up to a gentle amount of light in the morning, then dim-out curtains are the perfect choice for you.

Besides the benefits of light control, blackout curtains can reduce unwanted street noises. The thick fabric used to line blackout curtains acts as a sound insulator, helping you to get to sleep without being interrupted by any loud sounds.

As the warm seasons fly by and Winter comes, blackout curtains can help to keep the warmth in and the cold out due to the composition of the thick lining fabric. This is particularly ideal for single glazed windows which are a standard feature of period houses.
